GPU-Accelerated Server for Large Electronic Simulations in CST STUDIO SUITE®

Improve Simulation Times on Large Electronic Structures with Tesla GPUs, CST STUDIO SUITE, and Microway

Microway’s NumberSmasher® GPU-accelerated servers provide a pre-configured platform for CST STUDIO SUITE. These systems are 4U rackmount servers supporting up to eight NVIDIA Tesla K80 or K40 GPUs (along with additional slots for networking, storage connectivity and professional Quadro graphics). They enable high-speed simulations of one to two billion mesh cells using CST’s Transient Solver (exact model size depends upon the particulars of the materials).

The high memory bandwidth and parallel processing abilities of GPUs provide significant simulation speed advantages over conventional CPU computing. CST STUDIO SUITE supports GPU computing in the transient solver, integral equation solver, transmission line matrix (TLM) solver and particle-in-cell (PIC) solver, using NVIDIA Tesla® GPUs.

Need more compute power? Our NumberSmasher servers can be linked together via 56Gbps FDR InfiniBand to provide a powerful HPC cluster for CST STUDIO SUITE.
