The Mitrion FPGA Supercomputing Day event is being hosted by Dr. Tarek El-Ghazawi, Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director of the High Performance Computing Lab at George Washington University.
FPGA Supercomputing is an exciting and growing market segment based on technology that enables processor performance acceleration 10x to 100x greater than traditional processors and with much lower power consumption. Scientists, developers, and researchers strive to improve productivity by achieving faster performance in their supercomputing applications and lower power consumption in their systems. The software-centric Mitrion Platform is the leading technology because it allows FPGA Supercomputing applications to be developed without any circuit design skills. Key application areas that stand to benefit most from FPGA Supercomputing are bioinformatics, oil and gas, imaging, and financial industries.
"High Performance Computing Labs at George Washington University is one of the leading academic institutions within the supercomputing industry and a long-time user of the Mitrion Platform, even back in our BETA development stages," stated Anders Dellson, CEO of Mitrionics, Inc. "We're excited to be offering this workshop at their location to help educate attendees and to advance application development knowledge for FPGA Supercomputing."
About the Mitrion Platform and Mitrion Virtual Processor
The fine-grain, massively parallel Mitrion Virtual Processor in the FPGA makes it possible to program a processor instead of designing a circuit. The Mitrion Virtual Processor has a unique architecture, which can be adapted to run on any FPGA based system. Together with the Mitrion Software Development Kit, they offer a unique solution for developing supercomputing applications for FPGAs on a true software level. This dramatically reduces the total development costs for FPGA-based software acceleration, and more importantly, enables the whole supercomputing industry to benefit from FPGA application acceleration.
Founded in 2001, Mitrionics, Inc. is the technology leader in the exciting new field of FPGA Supercomputing which provides higher processing power and lower energy consumption than clusters of computer systems. The company's Mitrion Virtual Processor and Mitrion Software Development Kit provide cost-effective FPGA Supercomputing power to organizations for their most critical applications. The Mitrion Platform is unique from any other FPGA programming solution, because it eliminates the need for circuit design skills, thus making FPGA Supercomputing performance accessible to an entire new market of scientists and developers. Mitrionics has key industry relationships with Cray, Nallatech, and Silicon Graphics.
