AUSTIN, TX – November 8, 2011 – Nimbic, a leading provider of SaaS-based, cloud-computing 3D Fullwave Electromagnetic Integrity solutions for Signal Integrity (SI), Power Integrity (PI) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), today announced that Dr. Dipanjan Gope, Vice President, R&D of Nimbic, will present in IEEE CPMT Austin Chapter seminar titled “3D Full-wave, Package-Board Simulation Aided by the Cloud” to be held at Freescale in Austin, Texas.
The drive towards high-performance, high-functionality, low-cost packages has given rise to an increased requirement for using 3D full-wave electromagnetic solvers for design and verification. However, analysis of large scale package-board systems present significant challenges in terms of memory capacity to fit the solver matrix, and time-bottlenecks preventing quick turnaround required for early design optimization. Fast solver algorithms developed over the last 2 decades have alleviated the problems to an extent. The emergence of cloud computing and the corresponding on-demand availability of custom computing instances, presents a unique opportunity to meet the time-memory requirements and enter the “simulation-in-a-coffee-break” paradigm. In order to harness the true potential of the cloud infrastructure, a multilevel parallelization scheme is adopted:
- The bottom-most parallelization layer consists of multi-threading with OpenMP to utilize the many cores of an individual machine instance and the available shared memory.
- The second layer uses Message Passing Interface (MPI) to seamlessly combine the shared-memory on multiple instances to fit a larger matrix size.
- The third layer uses SGE to distribute the multiple port solutions in the solve stage.
- The top-most layer is an umbrella of SGE that parallelizes for discrete frequency or parametric sweeps, a type of parallelization which fall under the so-called “pleasingly parallel” form.
