Angstrom Microsystems has announced the first deployment of its xFFT library. The accelerated Fast Fourier Transform library was purchased by LumArray Inc, an MIT-based technology company. LumArray is a spin-off from the MIT NanoStructures Lab that develops state-of-the-art maskless nanolithography technology.
Maskless lithography is notorious for being computationally intensive, and using conventional CPUs we would require tens or hundreds of machines to meet our goals for data-processing,” said Michael Walsh, Vice President of Engineering. “LumArray is excited to work with Angstrom to reduce the number of machines down to a handful, therefore saving costs and eliminating the need for our customers to also purchase and maintain a large computing cluster.”
xFFT provides an interface compatible to that of the standard FFTW library, so applications engineers can sit easy.
