Presentation Abstract:

The Mitrion Virtual Processor is a hardware design for a configurable high-performance software execution engine. Instantiated in FPGAs, the Mitrion Virtual Processor executes programs, giving users true software programmability for FPGAs. The Mitrion Virtual Processor is massively parallel Multiple Instruction, Multiple Data (MIMD) at the fine grain instruction level, capable of executing tens of thousands of instructions per clock-cycle. It is automatically and completely adapted for the application, allowing it to maintain the full performance capabilities of FPGAs. In a Hybrid Computer, the adaptability of FPGAs gives acceleration for computation on application specific data where fixed hardware devices do not have specific support. With the software programmability enabled by the MVP, it becomes possible to program the entire Hybrid Computing machine in software, opening up the applicability of hybrid computers to a wide audience.

Mitrion SDK 2.0 & Hybrid Computing Systems

The Mitrion SDK is a complete development environment for accelerating applications while making it easy for programmers to learn how to write software that takes advantage of the parallelism available with the Mitrion Virtual Processor. The SDK includes a compiler and graphical code-simulator that simplifies finding programming errors, performance bottlenecks, and inefficient code. The SDK supports Linux/UNIX, Windows and Mac OS X and can be downloaded free from Mitrionics also offers several choices of Hybrid Computing Development Systems which provide a complete package of hardware, software and tools.
