HPC applications are reaching their performance limits-not because of Moore's law, but because of space, power and cooling requirements. For example, exascale computing requires some form of heterogeneous computing, and hybrid-core technology may well provide the answer. Convey users are on the forefront of research with systems that provides algorithmic and architectural prototyping using field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
Convey's hybrid-core computing accelerates research with a comprehensive development environment, industry standard compilers, and a unique "Personality Development Kit."
FPGAs allow research into development of highly parallel, application-specific instruction sets applicable to a variety of disciplines.
The flexible architecture delivers high performance on a wide variety of applications within a constrained power envelope.
