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.
This year, Design News is getting a head start on the Fourth of July celebration. In honor of our country and its legacy of engineering innovation -- in all of its forms -- we are taking you on an alphabetical tour through all 50 states to showcase interesting engineering breakthroughs and historically significant events.
Earlier this year paralyzed IndyCar drive Sam Schmidt did the seemingly impossible -- opening the qualifying rounds at Indy by driving a modified Corvette C7 Stingray around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
