RunTime Computing Solutions, LLC Introduces VSI/Pro® GPU with support for NVIDIA®’s CUDA™ architecture.
Runtime Computing Solutions, LLC announces VSI/Pro® support for NVIDIA® CUDA™ with forthcoming support for OpenCL™ platforms.

VSI/Pro, the leading standards-based signal processing library based on the open VSIPL standard, now simplifies heterogeneous high performance embedded computing with GPUs. Specifically, VSI/Pro GPU utilizes GPU acceleration to enhance performance while retaining standards-based portability of VSIPL to enable heterogeneous high performance embedded computing. OpenCL™ support targeting additional GPUs will be available later this year.

Current VSI/Pro and other VSIPL users will benefit from the ability to utilize GPU power for the most demanding portions of their applications. Floating-point intensive applications, including radar, sonar, and signals intelligence applications in particular, will benefit from the performance boost provided by GPU acceleration. VSI/Pro GPU features include immediate support for NVIDIA CUDA and forthcoming support for OpenCL on both AMD® and NVIDIA® platforms.

VSI/Pro provides performance-portable signal processing functionality, including FFTs, correlations, convolutions, and linear, vector, and matrix operations to enable real-time and near-real-time applications. This release offers a straightforward means for developers to incorporate GPU acceleration incrementally into existing VSIPL applications. Support for embedded, 200-series, Tesla™ C10x0, and Fermi™-series NVIDIA GPUs is currently offered.

“VSI/Pro GPU enables existing VSIPL applications to be retargeted to newer hardware that incorporates GPUs, including workstations, embedded systems, testbeds, and next-generation heterogeneous systems.” stated Jennifer Skjellum, President of RunTime Computing Solutions. “Developers using VSIPL or VSI/Pro looking to port to GPU computing can now seamlessly introduce GPU computing using VSI/Pro GPU.”

VSI/Pro GPU will be available for shipment in June, 2011.
