DSP Development Corporation Announces Math Accelerator Module for DADiSP®

Combined vector, FFT and matrix accelerator plug-in module delivers increased performance for data analysis applications.

Newton, MA February 26, 2013
DSP Development Corporation announces DADiSP/ProPac, a combined math accelerator plug-in module for DADiSP, the engineering spreadsheet designed specifically for technical data analysis.

DADiSP/ProPac combines the new VectorXL module with the previously released FFTXL and MatrixXL modules to provide a single, optimized numeric processing engine.

DADiSP/VectorXL accelerates common vector math computations by using the Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL). Speed improvements by 20% to 60% are common. The MKL Library provides highly optimized vector routines based on the VML Vector Math Library. The algorithms are specifically tuned to Intel processors to provide enhanced performance.

The DADiSP/FFTXL plug-in module automatically accelerates FFT computations and FFT based analysis routines. Also based on MKL, FFTXL takes advantage of the latest instruction sets, parallelism and algorithms to yield a highly optimized FFT function. Performance gains of 2x to 10x over the standard built-in FFT function are realized to benefit new and existing FFT analysis applications.

The DADiSP/MatrixXL Module builds upon LAPACK, Linear Algebra PACKage provided by Intel® MKL to accelerate core matrix computations. LAPACK is an industry standard software library that provides a number of matrix routines including functions to solve linear equations, least squares systems, eigenvalue and singular value decomposition problems. By exploiting the processor tuned performance of Intel® MKL LAPACK, MatrixXL delivers speed increases of 3x to 50x over the standard built-in matrix functions.

"DADiSP/ProPac delivers the combined benefits of VectorXL, FFTXL and MatrixXL in one simple package to provided highly optimized numeric analysis capabilities to DADiSP users in a transparent manner" said Randy Race, DSP's Chief Technical Officer. "Fast and highly tuned computing algorithms once limited to the domain of specialty programmers are now available to scientists and engineers across a broad spectrum of applications."

DADiSP/ProPac is compatible with DADiSP 6.5 and requires no changes to existing analysis routines. Now available for general release, DADiSP/ProPac is priced at $745.00, representing a cost savings of 50% over purchasing each module separately.
