Mitrionics Presents Early Scaling Results for Portable Parallel Code on FPGAs, Multi-Cores and Clusters at SC09

PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 11/16/09 -- SUPERCOMPUTING 2009, SC09 Booth #1006 -- Mitrionics, Inc., the technology leader in FPGA-based hybrid computing, today announced its experimental work on a new proof-of-concept compiler for portable parallel programming. Early scalability results will be presented in a talk at SC09 by Mitrionics' Co-Founder and Chief Science Officer Stefan Möhl. The proof-of-concept compiler is a test-bench to prove that a Mitrion-C program will automatically scale, not only on FPGAs, but also on multi-core systems and clusters, without changing the source code between the radically diverse architectures. Mitrion-C as a commercial product has already been proven to give high performance on FPGAs. The proof-of-concept compiler shows that this performance is translatable to other architectures as well. Mitrionics will be demonstrating the first test algorithms accelerated with this new technology in its booth #1006 at the Supercomputing 2009 Conference.

"The unique properties of Mitrion-C really come from its FPGA origins. FPGAs require full MIMD parallelism for each and every instruction for efficient execution. Mitrion-C was developed to capture this kind of limit-case for parallelism. To run Mitrion-C code on other less parallel platforms, you need to sequentialize the code, rather than parallelize it. The problem of automatic parallelization has turned out to be very hard. In comparison, sequentialization is quite easy," said Stefan Möhl. "This has the potential to put an end, or at least dramatically reduce, the continuous software rewrites that are required to take advantage of new parallel computing architectures. Looking back, it should in principle work efficiently for all previous popular parallel architectures, ranging from Vector computers, SIMD machines, and multi-threaded architecture to current MPPs, clusters, GPGPUs, FPGAs, and the future's many-core processors."

Currently, the Mitrion Accelerated Computing Platform is designed to provide researchers and developers with the latest parallel programming tools for FPGAs that do not require any hardware design knowledge or experience. Mitrionics' new proof of concept shows the potential of Mitrion-C as a truly portable parallel programming language, unlocking the full potential of hybrid computers. The Mitrion Platform enables rapid development of new accelerated applications in bioinformatics, computer-aided design, data mining, financial services, government/defense, and oil and gas industries. Systems running applications accelerated using the Mitrion Platform generally perform 10x to 100x faster than traditional systems while decreasing electrical power requirements by ninety percent.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
