Computing Inc., a technology leader in high-performance computing,
LLC, a semiconductor adventure capital company, today announced the
availability of Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) Controller Intellectual
Property (IP). HMC technology brings greatly expanded bandwidth (up to
240GB/s) to image processing, packet processing, video processing, and
other high-performance computing applications. The new HMC Controller
offering is essential to unlocking the breakthrough capabilities of HMC
technology, which in turn overcomes traditional memory constraints.
“Pico Computing’s innovative HMC controller IP, originally designed
specifically for Micron, provides tremendous benefits to memory-bound
applications, and particularly those that require high bandwidth and
fast random access,” said Jaime
Cummins, CEO, Pico Computing. “The combination of our IP with
TekStart’s deep IP integration and solutions expertise will provide a
solid platform for advances in the HMC space.”
Led by semiconductor industry veterans, the TekStart team has played an
integral role in building, defining and growing the memory semiconductor
and IP business. By working with nearly a dozen memory IP companies as
founders, executives, managers, and engineering professionals, as well
as being part of steering committees and associations, the TekStart team
will add tremendous value to the joint venture and to the industry.
“TekStart has watched the HMC market develop over the last two years and
is thrilled to be working with Pico Computing to develop and deliver
this IP to customers and to the industry,” said Howard Pakosh, CEO,
TekStart. “Pico Computing, with its modular approach to FPGA-based
high-performance computing, has successfully addressed the issues
surrounding CPU-based limitations, and is now, with HMC, turning its
attention to knocking down the memory wall. With our IP experience and
background, we will be able to further HMC advances with ASIC design
starts as well, and bring this technology to full fruition.”
Technology, Inc. (MU)
HMC devices use advanced through-silicon vias (TSVs)—vertical conduits
that electrically connect a stack of individual memory chips—to combine
high-performance logic with Micron's state-of-the-art DRAM technology.
HMC is recognized by the high-performance computing industry as the
long-awaited answer to the growing gap between the performance
improvement rate of DRAM and ever-expanding processor data consumption
Scott Graham, Micron’s general manager for Hybrid Memory Cube, added,
“Pico Computing’s technical expertise and experience coupled with HMC’s
performance and efficiency will enable users to overcome their most
challenging requirements for next-generation systems.”
The Hybrid Memory Cube Controller IP is available now. For more

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things.
And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
