Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
Pico Computing, leader in hardware accelerated FPGA solutions, will be sponsoring the SC12 conference being held in Salt Lake City, UT from November 10-16, 2012. Pico Computing will be participating in several sessions and exhibiting their FPGA based solutions at booth #2107.
- Burrows-Wheeler Aligner (BWA)
Pico will be demonstrating a 48X acceleration of the genome sequencing algorithm, BWA.
- M-506 FPGA Module
Pico will be showcasing their Altera Stratix V FPGA module, the M-506 5SGXA3. The M-506 features 4GB DDR3 SODIMM for up to 12.8 GB/s memory bandwidth, x8 Gen3 PCIe, 32 LVDS and 2 GX transceivers.
- Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) on Large-Scale Reconfigurable Supercomputing
Greg Edvenson (Principal Software Engineer) will sit on the panel to discuss System Technologies on Tuesday, November 13, at 5:30PM-7:00PM in room 255-D.
- Non-Coding Ribonucleic Acid (ncRNA)
Pico’s collaboration with the University of Washington has resulted in a 90X speedup of Infernal, a software package being used to identify ncRNA. Nathaniel McVicar, researcher at the University of Washington, will be presenting this research at the Exhibitor Forum on Thursday, November 15, in room 155-B at 11:30AM.
