George Washington University Hosts Mitrion FPGA Supercomputing Day at High Performance Computing Lab

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Sep 27, 2006 -- Mitrionics™, Inc., developer of the Mitrion™ Virtual Processor and software-centric Mitrion-C programming language for FPGA Supercomputing acceleration, today announced it will be conducting an all-day FPGA Supercomputing conference and workshop at George Washington University's High Performance Computing Labs. The conference is FREE and open to students, faculty, researchers, developers, and scientists at the university or by invitation. The conference and workshop will take place on September 29, 2006 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mitrionics' President and CEO Anders Dellson and Mitrionics' Applications Analyst Jace Mogill will cover a broad range of introductory-to-advanced topics designed to provide attendees with both a theoretical and working knowledge of how to develop and implement FPGA Supercomputing applications using the Mitrion Platform. It is still possible to register by sending an email to Email Contact.

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.
