New technology will solve many compute-intensive problems â€“ Initial target is eliminating JPEG 2000 and 4K processing bottlenecks Montreal, Canadaâ€”July 22, 2008â€”
has announced that it will use the TeraOPS-class AmbricÂ® massively parallel processing array (MPPA) chip for its new
products. The two companies are initially collaborating to bring a real-time HD Motion JPEG 2000 codec solution to market, with expectations of broader offerings in the future. Stefany Allaire Pixellexis CEO & Founder comments, â€œWeâ€™re very excited about the alliance with AmbricÂ®. We have incorporated their chips into our solutions and realized a 5 fold increase in computational density. A single AmbricÂ® chip has 336 energy-efficient processors that are ideal for advanced video processing on our new platforms. Additionally, their software and tools have cut our time to market by more than half.
will be available in the fall of 2008.â€?
a 2RU parallel processor appliance, can be attached to your workstation via a PCIe cable with 10Gbps bandwidth, or installed in your IT center. With 4 AmbricÂ® chips, more than 1,300 processors and 4 TeraOPS are utilized for compute-intense applications. RedBrixâ„¢ is designed to speed up workstations and infrastructure where conventional multi-core processors are inadequate. Applications that can be assisted by such a product are HD JPEG 2000 codec, and high resolution (4K) image processing.
as the name suggests, is a half-length, 15 W, 4-lane PCI Express card installed directly in a workstation. It features a single AmbricÂ® MPPA device and dramatically improves the local performance of the workstation without the need to expand the IT infrastructure. Complete details of RedBrixâ„¢ and RedCardâ„¢ will be appearing on the Pixellexis web site shortly,
