Fujitsu Ltd's majority-owned Sparc outfit Ross Technology Inc of Austin, Texas has formed Ross Microcomputer in Sonoma, California to produce and offer system-level Sparc products for the value- added reseller and OEM markets. The declared objective is to provide the performance of UltraSparc at hyperSparc prices for SunOS users that have yet to make the switch to Solaris. It will offer a new line of hyperStation products, broadening the Sparc user base, and offering an alternative to the software migration necessitated by UltraSparc. Ross customers for microprocessors and microprocessor-based products include Sun Microsystems, Fujitsu Ltd, its PFU Japanese affiliate, ICL Plc, Axil Workstations Inc and Auspex Technologies Inc. Ross will provide multiprocessing systems using a new high-performance 66MHz MBus. Sun Microsystems Inc is a minority shareholder in Ross Technology.
