[COVID-19 UPDATE] Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the declared state of emergency in Portugal, all projects will run with some limitations. Protect yourself and your family and be safe.

Welcome to INSILICO LABS.
Meet us and discover our projects and areas of expertise.

Time and Frequency

We design intelligent and high accurancy GNSS disciplined oscillators (GNSSDO) and Network Time Protocol (NTP) Stratum 1 servers with time reference from Rubidium atomic oscilators and/or 1PPS from GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou or Galileo GNSS Statelites.

We own and operate NTP Stratum 2 servers to enable time syncronization over IP to the portuguese region (PT), as well as woldwide access. The servers are syncronized with Atomic (Celsium) and GPS clocks and are inserted in the portuguese and european time pool manteined by the Network Time Foundation.

ADAMASTOR

ADAMASTOR is a High-Performance Computing (HPC) cluster designed for Development. Used by students, researchers and IT professionals in the design and development of projects in parallel programming.

The system is based on top rated supercomputers listed in the TOP500 and is classified a Green Supercomputer using ARM 64-bits CPU architecture with a power consuming of 2W/Computacional Node Core.

The software available to the user it’s the same that’s installed in the most supercomputers like Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard, Slurm Workload Manager, Environment Modules system (Lmod) and programing language compilers and libraries.

ADAMASTOR
Jorge Colaço (1868-1942) – ‘Adamastor’, detail of the tile panels of the Palace Hotel Buçaco, Sacavém Pottery Factory, 1907.

The name ADAMASTOR is related with a mythological character created by the Portuguese poet Luís de Camões in his epic poem “Os Lusíadas” (first printed in 1572), as a personification of the Cape of Good Hope, symbolizing the dangers of the sea and the formidable forces of nature challenged and ultimately overcome by the Portuguese during the Discovery Age (Wikipedia).

The system will be available in the end of the year 2020 with 15% of the Computacional Nodes and Login Nodes installed. The full capacity is predicted in the middle of the year 2021.

Legacy Systems

We’re a specialist in supporting companies worldwide with their support and development projects on IBM MVS, OS400 and z/OS for IBM iSeries and zSeries platforms using COBOL, Job Control Language (JCL), DB2 Database and CICS.

We design and develop applications in OpenVMS (Itanium Architecture IA-64) and VAX VMS using COBOL, DTR, HP DECforms, DEC Command Language (DCL) and DEC Code Management System (CMS).
