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.
A middle school team from Rochester, Mich., has again nabbed the grand prize in the annual international Future City Competition, which drew students from 37 regions of the United States, as well as from England and China.
The word “smart” is becoming the dumbest word around. It has been applied to almost every device and system in our homes. In addition to smartphones and smart meters, we now hear about smart clothing and smart shoes, smart lights, smart homes, smart buildings, and every trendy city today has its smart city project. Just because it has a computer inside and is connected to the Web, does not mean it is smart.
Are you being paid enough? Do you want a better job? According to a recent survey Manpower released just before Engineers Week, employers and engineers don't see eye-to-eye about the state of US engineers' skills and experience.
