      Tachyum Successfully Runs LINPACK on FPGA With IEEE 754-2019 Compliant FPU

      The vector unit includes copies of 16 Floating-Point Units (FPUs) and additional shuffle and reduction operations. While there are many instructions to test in a vector unit, the Floating-Point vector operations are the hardest part of a vector unit, and that part is now successfully behind Tachyum’s product development team.

      LINPACK measures a system’s floating-point computing power by solving a dense system of linear equations to determine performance. It is a widely used benchmark for supercomputers, including the NSCC Slovakia Supercomputer.

      Tachyum Prodigy FPGA Running Applications in Linux Interactive Mode

      Tachyum has progressed to running applications in Linux interactive mode on Prodigy FPGA hardware with SMP (Symmetric Multi-Processing) Linux and the floating-point unit enabled on the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) prototype of its Prodigy Universal Processor.

      In this video we briefly demonstrate the FPGA hardware, before moving on to a demo of a typical user session. We perform basic commands for working with the file system, processes, permissions, printing information about architecture, boot sequence, and terminal. Finally, we demonstrate the capability of running applications by running linpack.
