HaL Computer Systems Inc is understood to have got first silicon back on its multi-chip 64-bit Sparc processor from its new owner, Fujitsu Ltd. Although Fujitsu, now sole owner of the firm, said at the end of last year that it expected a box out of HaL by the end of 1994, observers suggest that with a multi-chip approach, the machines are probably a year away from full production, and vendors such as ICL Plc may only see system implementations towards the end of 1995. HaL had planned to supply its technology directly, but is now expected to offer some hardware and software on the OEM market too. HaL insiders also say it would be unwise to ship anything that would be incapable of running Windows NT at some point. Some hitherto unstated HaL activity is expected to appear at UniForum.
