Spring Announcement Season

I don't have much editorial to add here... The move to commercialize Accelerated Computing is on. To sell to a commercial, not research, customer requires solutions - defined as software and hardware working together on an application. Below are the links to three recently announced solutions...

  1. Mitronics with not-so-new news, pushing the Bio stack they showcased just about one year ago at ISC. The demoed it (again) at BioIT World April 28th . They are also promoting the new personal SDK. I don't have experience with it, but would love to hear a story or two.... For the Bio demo news go here. For more on the SDK go to their home page,
  2. Acceleware does EDA for the Koreans. In an example of working really hard at it, Acceleware has partnered with SPEAG, a specialized simulator for EM (Electromagnetic readiation), to sell an GPGU version of their SW as a turnkey solution. Korean handset radiation simulation is not the only use. Boston Scientific also uses the solution. They claim 25x speed up.
  3. Angstrom, a Boston area system builder, has announced formal support GPGPU with both a hardware platform and an accelerated GPGPU library. The library is a plug in for Atlas, a well known linear math library. So this isn't really a solution, but it's a step in the right direction.

Speaking of BioIT World... Joe Landman was there. His post from the floor is here. It doesn't cover Accelerated Computing, but he deserves the plug.
