Mitrionics claims that its Mitrion Accelerated Computing Platform can achieve a 20X performance increase and 90% power savings over traditional processors when running standard application algorithms for information retrieval and document filtering. Power consumption in data centers is a growing issue as the cost of the power for computation and cooling as become dominate. An emerging challenge is the development of “environmentally friendly” systems.
The Mitrion SDK is a complete development environment for accelerating applications while making it easy for programmers to learn how to write software using parallel programming techniques that take advantage of the parallel processing capabilities of the Mitrion Virtual Processor. The SDK includes a compiler and graphical code-simulator that simplifies finding programming errors, performance bottlenecks, and inefficient code. Mitrionics offers an SDK Personal Edition that supports Linux/UNIX, Windows and Mac OS X which can be downloaded for free.
