Remcom announces Exxact Corporation (Fremont, CA) as the newest partner in its program to provide custom computer systems for speeding FDTD electromagnetic simulation performance. Exxact develops and manufactures high performance computing systems with the most advanced GPU technology available today. Accommodating up to eight NVIDIA CUDA-enabled GPUs, their custom configured systems can run XFdtd® simulations well beyond 300 times faster than traditional hardware.

Their ability to fully customize and build the class of machines that our customers need was evident; however, we were also impressed with their commitment to provide unrivaled support and customer satisfaction, which is in line with Remcom’s values and corporate mission. Our partnership is a winning combination and an ideal match of our companies’ visions.

Remcom announces a new partner in its program to provide custom computer systems for speeding FDTD electromagnetic simulation performance. Exxact Corporation (Fremont, CA) develops and manufactures innovatively engineered high performance systems for graphics processing unit (GPU) computing, professional workstation, visual computing and other applications. Their custom configured systems include the most modern GPU technology available today and can run XFdtd® simulations at speeds orders of magnitudes faster than traditional hardware.

Exxact’s Quantum GPU Workstation provides XFdtd users with the following benefits:

  • Cluster level computing performance
  • Up to eight NVIDIA CUDA-enabled Tesla series or Quadro FX GPUs
  • Up to 300 times faster than a standard PC when using four GPUs; beyond 300 times faster with additional GPUs and with NVIDIA’s new “Fermi” enabled GPUs
  • Up to 4GB high speed memory per GPU
  • Windows or Linux operating system

Jason Chen, Exxact’s vice president, said, “We are a leader in providing the most advanced technologies the market has to offer. Remcom approached us with the objective of providing their customers with the fastest GPU performance possible, and we viewed this as an opportunity to open new possibilities for both companies. We look forward to delivering an even higher level of power and speed for running FDTD electromagnetic simulations on GPUs, while at the same time gaining experience in the needs of EM design engineers.”

“We originally approached Exxact to join the program because of their longevity and expertise developing high performance computing systems in other markets,” said Jim Stack, training, applications and consulting manager for Remcom. “Their ability to fully customize and build the class of machines that our customers need was evident; however, we were also impressed with their commitment to provide unrivaled support and customer satisfaction, which is in line with Remcom’s values and corporate mission.
