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 Gadget Freak Review looks at a keyless Bluetooth padlock that works with your smartphone, along with a system that tracks your sleep behavior and wakes you at the perfect time in your sleep cycle to avoid morning grogginess.
Siemens released Intosite, a cloud-based, location-aware SaaS app that lets users navigate a virtual production facility in much of the same fashion as traversing through Google Earth. Users can access PLM, IT, and other pertinent information for specific points on a factory floor or at an outdoor location.
Since 1987, teams of engineers around the world have built solar cars to participate in a road race around Australia called the World Solar Challenge, being tested on the race time, kilometers traveled, practicality, and energy used by the vehicles they invent.
