Using GPUs to accelerate circuit simulation technology. By Srinivas Kodiyalam (NVIDIA) and Samad Parekh (Synopsys) With the ever-increasing demand for more computing performance, the HPC industry is moving towards a heterogeneous computing model, where GPUs and CPUs work together to perform general-purpose computing tasks. In this heterogeneous computing model, the GPU serves as an accelerator to the CPU, to offload the CPU and to increase computational efficiency. To exploit this computing model and the massively parallel GPU architecture, the application software will need to be redesigned. Synopsys and NVIDIA engineers have been working together to use GPUs to accelerate circuit simulation technology. IC design complexity has continued to grow exponentially. Just in the last...

Sunlight Partners with LanternEdge to Unlock True Edge Computing Performance with HCI

CAMBRIDGE, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sunlight, a developer of virtualization technology for data-intensive applications, today announced a technology partnership with LanternEdge, a provider of technologies that enable intelligence in harsh and hazardous environments. Bringing together Sunlight’s HCI stack and LanternEdge’s HarshProTM Servers, this partnership will enable enterprises to take advantage of all the high-performance benefits edge computing has to offer, regardless of environmental conditions. Edge computing reduces latency and data transmission costs incurred by traditional cloud computing, but not all enterprises are equipped with the right infrastructure to meet the power, performance and environmental demands of the edge and therefore cannot truly reap the benefits. Hyperconvergence allows for scalability, security, high...

CASE mobility reliant on high performance computing

NVIDIA Drive Constellation
HPC is a vital technology for every current automotive megatrend, writes Alyssa Altman, Senior Vice President, Transportation & Mobility, Publicis SapientThe future of automotive innovation and the ability to move with speed is reliant on High Performance Computing (HPC). With the world of mobility shifting to software-enabled products and services, and the need for processing multiple sources of data at once, managing massive amounts of computing quickly is imperative. HPC provides critical lifesaving tools for the future of the automotive industry. Having HPC capabilities is the foundation for accelerating autonomous vehicles and connected car technology, reframing the design process, automating and accelerating testing and launching new functionality. Today, every OEM is using HPC in some form.With autonomous vehicles, success relies on...
