Autonomous University of Madrid Selects Mitrion Platform to Accelerate CFD Algorithms for Flight Physics Simulations

LOS GATOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/07/09 -- Mitrionics, Inc., the technology leader in FPGA-based hybrid computing, today announced that researchers from the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) Computer Engineering Department have selected the Mitrion(TM) Accelerated Computing Platform for a special engineering project. The test project is designed to significantly accelerate the execution of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) algorithms used for flight physics simulations with the objective of reducing the overall design time of airplanes. Researchers will utilize mathematical methods to take advantage of parallel hardware and the Mitrion-C parallel programming language as a rapid development tool. To begin its project, UAM purchased the Mitrion Virtual Processor and Mitrion Software Development Kit to accelerate the CFD algorithm on a dual coprocessor computer system equipped with dual Altera® Stratix III® FPGAs.

The Mitrion Accelerated Computing Platform is designed to provide researchers and developers with the latest parallel programming tools for FPGAs that do not require any hardware design knowledge or experience. The Mitrion Platform enables rapid development of new accelerated applications in bioinformatics, computer-aided design, data mining, financial services, government/defense, and oil and gas industries. Systems running applications accelerated using the Mitrion Platform generally perform 20x faster than traditional systems while decreasing electrical power requirements by ninety percent.

"Our project has important time constraints so we needed a rapid development tool and the Mitrion SDK allowed us to implement the CFD algorithms in less time than using traditional HDLs," said Ivan Gonzalez, Assistant Professor, Computer Engineering Department, Autonomous University of Madrid. "Based on our preliminary experience implementing some of the CFD algorithms, we have achieved significant performance increases compared to running the same algorithms without the Mitrion acceleration."

"We are excited to see the Mitrion Accelerated Computing Platform effectively used as a rapid development tool and with the significant performance gains achieved by UAM researchers in their project to accelerate algorithms in Computational Fluid Dynamics," said Stefan Möhl, co-founder and chief science officer of Mitrionics, Inc. "Mitrionics congratulates the UAM research team for their successful project outcome and for their demonstrated proficiency in parallel programming using Mitrion-C."

Mitrion SDK 2.0 - Accelerated Computing Platform

The Mitrion SDK is a complete development environment for accelerating applications while making it easy for programmers to learn how to write software using parallel programming techniques that take advantage of the parallel processing capabilities of the Mitrion Virtual Processor. The SDK includes the Mitrion-C parallel programming language, a compiler, and graphical code-simulator to identify programming errors, performance bottlenecks, and inefficient code. Mitrionics offers a free SDK Personal Edition that supports Linux/UNIX, Windows and Mac OS X which can be downloaded from: http://www.mitrionics.com/?page=Downloads

The Autonomous University of Madrid is a Spanish Public University established in 1968 and one of Spain's most prominent higher education institutions. It is divided into eight faculties and superior schools that support and coordinate most of the University's academic and administrative activity. UAM offers undergraduate degrees, graduate degrees, and 125 PhD programs in all of the university's programs and 65 departments. UAM has 11 research institutes and 4 research institutes that are combined UAM and Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC). For more information, visit: http://www.uam.es/ss/Satellite/en/home.
