DSP Development Corporation Announces Performance Accelerators for DADiSP®

FFT and matrix accelerator plug-in modules deliver increased performance for signal processing and matrix applications.

Newton, MA February 13, 2012
DSP Development Corporation announces FFT and Matrix accelerator modules for DADiSP, the engineering spreadsheet designed specifically for technical data analysis.

The DADiSP/FFTXL plug-in module automatically accelerates FFT computations and FFT based analysis routines. FFTXL uses the finely tuned Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) and 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.

"FFTXL and MatrixXL bring the benefits of highly optimized signal processing and matrix algorithms to DADiSP users in a simple and accessible manner" said Randy Race, DSP's Chief Technical Officer. "Advanced computing capabilities once limited to the domain of specialty programmers are now available to scientists and engineers across a broad spectrum of applications."

Both FFTXL and MatrixXL are compatible with DADiSP 6.5 and require no changes to existing analysis routines. Both modules are priced at $495.00 and are now available for general release.
