Imaging's Matrox Supersight
is designed for imaging applications with a high throughput. Leveraging
multiple clusters of CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs, Matrox Supersight e2 provides an
environment for considerable data and task-level parallel processing through a
PCI Express x16 2.0 (Gen2) switch fabric. The Matrox Imaging Library, which
includes its Distributed MIL API, allows developers to create applications for
Matrox Supersight e2. As MIL is supported on all Matrox Imaging hardware
platforms, development on Matrox Supersight e2 is simplified and ensures that
the source code is portable across all devices, from nodes with 48 CPU cores
and 4 FPGAs, to a node with 12 CPU cores, 1 FPGA and 6 (double-wide) GPUs, and
everything in between. A high-bandwidth PCIe 2.0 switched fabric backplane, provides
substantial data throughput and expansion capability for supporting up to six
double-wide or up to nine single-wide GPUs in a 4U platform. Each ATI FirePro
Professional Graphics card provides up to 1600 stream processors and 147.2 GB/s
of memory bandwidth.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
