LAMA 2.0 accelerates more than just numerical applications

21.06.2016

Fraunhofer SCAI publishes with LAMA 2.0 the next evolution of its high performance computing framework. It has grown from a linear algebra library to a multi-purpose programming framework.

By offering DSL-like C++-Syntax LAMA encourages writing of hardware-independent code. The framework allows the management of data on heterogeneous and distributed system architectures. These can range from embedded “System on a Chip” (aka SoC) devices to highly-parallel Supercomputers.

Consequently, LAMA offers full cluster support. Kernel management is provided with ready-to-use modules encapsulating interfaces to Intel® MKL and Nvidia® cuBLAS/cuSPARSE (targeting all multicore CPUs, Nvidia® GPUs, and Intel® Xeon® Phi™). For the purpose of extending LAMA, the framework supports the integration of custom modules.

Hence, it greatly facilitates the development of fast and scalable software for nearly every system on every scale. LAMA accelerates the time-to-market for new product developments significantly, reduces the time spent in maintaining existing code, and offers up-to-date hardware compatibility for even the latest architectures.

Typically, LAMA targets applications with needs in numerical mathematics (such as CFD and FEM simulation). Furthermore, LAMA 2.0 integrates methodology in the areas of optimization (e.g. for seismic imaging), computer vision, and deep learning.

It is available with an industry-friendly dual licensing model (AGPL for open source or individual agreements for other interests).

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...

Im Focus: New nanomaterial can extract hydrogen fuel from seawater

Hybrid material converts more sunlight and can weather seawater's harsh conditions

It's possible to produce hydrogen to power fuel cells by extracting the gas from seawater, but the electricity required to do it makes the process costly. UCF...

Im Focus: Small collisions make big impact on Mercury's thin atmosphere

Mercury, our smallest planetary neighbor, has very little to call an atmosphere, but it does have a strange weather pattern: morning micro-meteor showers.

Recent modeling along with previously published results from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft -- short for Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry and...
