Enabling High Performance Computing on Embedded Systems
On-demand Web Seminar
High Performance Computing (HPC) has classically been the domain of super computers consisting of rooms filled with endless rows of rack-mounted processor blades. However, recent advances in processors and single board computers are enabling compute-intensive applications to run on embedded systems. This session reviews the challenges of accessing the teraflop-range performance potential of these new platforms and explains how high level libraries like Sourcery VSIPL++ and performance profiling tools like Sourcery Analyzer can help maximize application speed performance and portability while ensuring high developer productivity.
What You Will Learn
- Common pitfalls to accessing maximum hardware speed performance
- The advantages of using a high-level library for HPC application development
- How performance profiling data visualization can accelerate HPC application debugging
