NoRMCorre Acceleration by GPU

NoRMCorre is a motion correction algorithm commonly used by neuroscientists. However, it is one of the most time-consuming pipelines used for neuroanalysis. We ported and optimized NoRMCorre to GPU, and our accelerated GPU version runs 2x faster than the original CPU version of NoRMCorre, using a rigid mode data set.

In-Situ Sequencing Acceleration by GPU and Flash Storage

In-Situ Sequencing is a new sequencing method which, unlike conventional DNA/RNA methods, is able to simultaneously profile sequences of bases and their locations in a cell. Before our In-Situ Sequencing acceleration, our client's software took about 6 months to analyze RNA images captured by microscopes. Our experienced engineers improved the software source code, improving the performance by 35x, which shortened the usual 6 month analysis into 5 days.

Geometric Performance Primitives (GPP)

The performance gain of computational geometry is one of the most challenging topics. Fixstars developed a GPU/CPU multi-core accelerated computational geometry engine, called the Geometric Performance Primitives (GPP). This enabled faster turnaround times of high-precision designs, tests and verifications by efficiently utilizing higher computational resources available. GPP for EDA can run up to 25x faster than reference CPUs with reduced memory footprint. Our client was able to retain perfect accuracy with 25x faster software acceleration.

Mizuho Securities Utilizing Xeon Phi Accelerators to Accelerate their Derivative Valuation System

Mizuho Securities, an investment bank in Japan, required faster simulation of derivative price running for their verification tests. They struggled to meet their clients' needs since it took too much time using their derivative valuation system. With the help from Fixstars, they were able to take full advantage of Intel Xeon Phi's parallelism and obtained 30x faster simulation.

HPC for US Air Force

The US Air Force (USAF) requires supercomputers to operate with the most advanced technology to protect our nation from any domestic or international threats. Fixstars configured and deployed the PS3 Cluster "Condor" for the USAF Research Lab. An estimated 500 TFLOPS of performance were developed for their applications such as radar enhancement, satellite image processing, and AI.
