GE Intelligent Platforms introduced AXISLib-GPU, which is a library of optimized math and DSP functions that supports the rapid development of multiprocessing applications that take advantage of the power of GPGPU (general purpose processing on a graphics processing unit) technology. AXISLib-GPU supports the development and speeds the deployment of high performance DSP and multiprocessing applications on GE’s NVIDIA CUDA-enabled GPGPU platforms (such as the IPN250, NPN240 and GRA111). AXISLib-GPU can operate in a standalone mode or as an integral software module within the AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software environment.
