CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® users can gain up to 40% performance improvements for electromagnetic simulations with Acceleware’s next generation of software acceleration products

CALGARY, Alberta, and Darmstadt, Germany, August 25, 2008 – Acceleware® Corp. (TSX-V: AXE), a leading developer of high performance computing applications, and Computer Simulation Technology (CST), a supplier of leading edge electromagnetic (EM) simulation software, today announced a new CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) based Acceleware solution for accelerating EM simulations with CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® (CST MWS). Trial tests of this new acceleration product have delivered performance gains of up to 40% compared to the current product. This faster version is compatible with current generation GPUs, delivering significant speed-ups to CST customers without having to upgrade hardware.

“CST MWS users already benefiting from our acceleration solutions will experience significant performance improvements with a simple software update,” said Ryan Schneider, CTO of Acceleware. “This combined offering enables Acceleware and CST to deliver the first ever CUDA powered solution to solve electromagnetic problems.”

The new Acceleware software uses NVIDIA’s CUDA programming language that was designed to solve complex computational problems, enabling users to access multi-core parallel processing technology. Engineers and product designers who value the CST MWS time domain solver’s efficiency, accuracy and user-friendly interface, will benefit from increased acceleration to help them tackle larger simulation problems and meet production deadlines.
