GPULib enables engineers, scientists, and analysts, as well as other technical professionals, to speed up their data analysis tasks by leveraging the computing performance available with graphics processing units (GPUs). The increasing amount of data collected by imaging sensors, sophistication of data analysis algorithms, and complexity of numerical models are rapidly outpacing the processing power of CPUs. As an alternative, GPUs offer the necessary processing power for these tasks.
GPULib, from Tech-X Corporation, allows GPU users to access high performance computing with minimal modification to their existing programs. By providing bindings for Interactive Data Language (IDL), GPULib can accelerate new applications or be incorporated into existing applications with minimal effort. No knowledge of massively parallel algorithm development or GPU memory management is required.
