EK Water Blocks Pushing the Bar for PC Water Cooling Computer Enthusiasts

EK Water Blocks Pushing the Bar for PC Water Cooling Computer Enthusiasts

Ljubljana, Slovenia (PRWEB) December 17, 2010

EK Water Blocks, the high-tech company from Slovenia, experienced another successful year, making the company one of the three largest in its field of PC cooling solutions, which is connected to silence and/or overclocking.

“Overclocking is the process of running a computer at a higher clock rate (more clock cycles per second) than it was designed for or was specified by the manufacturer, usually practiced by enthusiasts seeking an increase in the performance of their computers,” says Edvard König. “Because of overclocking, the computer chips produce more heat and water cooling is ideally suited for that.”

EK Water Blocks began development four years ago and within six months it had secured a worldwide distribution network for their product line. EKWB products are one of the top competing product lines, with an advanced design that offers yet another competitive advantage.

“It all started with a passion to determine the best solution to overclocking and liquid cooling. In six months, we have been able to beat the top competitors on the market, according to the initial online tests (, In 2010, EK-Supreme HF was the best CPU block for Intel™ and AMD™ processors. We were the first one to offer NvidiaTM GeForceTM 580 GTX water cooling solution. Today, we are already manufacturing water cooling solution for AMD™ Radeon™ 6900 series graphic cards to be the first company ready. We are also the only company with visually supported computer hardware compatibility online systems with our products,” says Edvard König, MD of the company.

EKWB has certainly created a sales force, which is equally forth going: “When we're looking for a top of the line cooling solution for any system hardware available we always look to EK first. Even new hardware is no problem for EK, with product release as close to hardware release as possible. Not only the most recommended product line to our customers, it is also the most used water block by our own employees. I think that says something. Top quality products and a company that backs them,” says James Davis, US reseller Performance PC’s.

Customer enthusiasm is a key cornerstone to sales growth. For that reason, EKWB is supporting a community of overclockers to discuss solutions on forums. Mr. König’s idea is to be there and have an active role, answering questions and stimulating debates. Statements from their customers say it all.

“Sweet stuff EK. I love the look and quality of your products. I’m definitely going to do more business with you in the near future. It’s nice to see a company dedicated to the water cooling market, coming out with great performing and looking products.”

Behind all this growth is technical and business excellence, which is best illustrated by Tony Nguyen, reviewer at in 2010: “The first impression when I opened the package was similar to visiting a high-end car dealership, with the attention to detail and quality. EK Water Blocks has really stepped things up, from their corporate design and package to the aesthetics and performance of the EK Supreme HF. I was so impressed with the block quality. I inspected it several times, hoping to find some flaw that may have snuck past the quality control inspection but ultimately I could not find anything amiss.”

MataiTech Launches NAUET 1.8, with an IP Import Wizard that Converts IP Blocks to the SPIRIT IP-XACT Standard

MataiTech Launches NAUET 1.8, with an IP Import Wizard that Converts IP Blocks to the SPIRIT IP-XACT Standard


MataiTech LLC has released the latest instantiation of its flagship EDA product, NAUET (newt) 1.8. It includes an enhanced SPIRIT IP-XACT editor and linter and an IP import wizard that converts any IP block to the SPIRIT IP-XACT format.

NAUET's revised and improved SPIRIT IP-XACT editor, linter and semantics checker is now more intuitive and user friendly than previous versions. It validates and lints all aspects of the SPIRIT IP-XACT standard and checks for consistency across multiple files.

NAUET 1.8 launches the world's first commercially available IP import wizard for the SPIRIT IP-XACT standard. It pulls in an IP block and describes interfaces and bus connections in the SPIRIT IP-XACT format. This feature allows MataiTech's customers to import their existing designs and third party IP to the NAUET development environment, thereby allowing easy connection to other IP blocks by NAUET's inherent Design Assembler.

"NAUET's IP import wizard is a phenomenal feature," claimed Aaron Baranoff, VP of engineering at MataiTech. "SPIRIT is a powerful standard with an appreciable learning curve. NAUET's IP import wizard allows our customers to short cut that learning curve. With our tools it is possible to create and edit SPIRIT IP-XACT IP blocks without ever touching a line of XML code. Even relative novices can be successful with this tool."

NAUET 1.8 is capable of converting existing SPIRIT IP-XACT 1.2 designs to the SPIRIT IP-XACT 1.4 standard. NAUET 1.8 is part of MataiTech's commitment to track and lead standards to the benefit of its customers.

"MataiTech is quickly establishing itself as the leader in SPIRIT support and direction. We have done that by launching the world's first SPIRIT linter in December and by launching the world's first SPIRIT IP-XACT import wizard here in March," explained Erik Jessen, CEO of MataiTech. "We believe the upcoming releases of NAUET Intermediate and NAUET Enhanced will clearly establish MataiTech as the 'go to' company for SPIRIT leadership, support and tools."

NAUET (newt) is MataiTech's 4th generation co-development tool. Compatible with major EDA tools, NAUET creates a parallel, symbiotic design flow environment for co-development of SoC hardware and software. It automatically links IP blocks, generates Verilog, VHDL, C, SystemC, RTOS framework, design documentation and test code. NAUET accelerates HDL coding and C/C++ coding to quickly allow engineers to begin application, driver and HDL development. Designs created with NAUET's Component Editor are reusable as IP in later projects. NAUET is bundled with a light weight, royalty free RTOS and many OpenCores IP blocks so customers can quickly create an SoC right out of the box. NAUET 1.8 provides Windows Vista support. A scaled down "Lite" version and a "Student/Teacher" version are also available via direct web purchase.

Free 30 day trial licenses are available for interested customers and press.

Researchers continues to make the basic building blocks of Quantum Computers.

(PRWEB) December 19, 2003

Research and Markets announces the addition of this new report entitled "Quantum Computing: Prospects and Pitfalls" to its offerings.

This report examines the current state of the technologies aimed at making quantum computers, organizes key issues and puts them in context, and succinctly explains how the technologies work.

Quantum computers, which use attributes of particles like photons, electrons and atoms to compute, would be fantastically fast for certain types of very large problems, including searching large databases and factoring the large numbers whose solutions would render today's encryption useless.

The report lays out the technologies researchers are using to make the basic building blocks of quantum computers -- qubits -- and to connect qubits into quantum computer architectures. These technologies include ion traps, semiconductor impurities, superconductor circuits, quantum dots, neutral atom optical traps, linear optics, nuclear magnetic resonance, molecular magnets, spectral hole burning devices, and Wigner crystals.

Scientists are also at work on software algorithms aimed to enable quantum architectures to solve certain types of problems many orders of magnitude faster than the fastest classical computers.

The report includes an executive summary, a list of 16 developments to look for as these cutting-edge technologies take shape, and a section of 52 researchers to watch, including links to their Web pages. It also includes a quick tour of 68 recent developments in six areas and a section of 52 in-depth news stories.

The stories are organized into nine categories quantum computing schemes, qubits, logic gates, computer architectures, tools and resources, storage, communications, algorithms and Theory.
