Fintronic USA, Inc. announces Inversion of Sparse Matrices of 40,000x40,000 elements of type real in extended Verilog, as part of Super FinSim's support for FinSimMath
San Mateo, Calif.--5:00pm PST, Friday July 24th, 2009--
Fintronic USA, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance Verilog
simulators announced, as part of it support for FinSimMath,
the capability of inverting sparse matrices of 40,000x40,000 elements of type real in extended Verilog. Fast read/write access to the data of such matrices is also provided.
Dr. Alec Stanculescu, CEO and President of Fintronic USA, stated
"Most electronic circuits being designed now are either (1) based on algorithms that involve mathematical computations such as FFT, solving differential equations, and/or performing matricial computations, or (2) need to be tested in environments that must be modeled via such mathematical computations, or both (1) and (2). FinSim, with its support for Verilog extended for mathematical computations, helps the design of such circuits.".
FinSimMath, an extension of Verilog for Mathematical computations is
described in chapter 8 of FinSim's User's Guide, available for
download on www.fintronic.com/support.html.
The tutorial available on Fintronic's WEB site at
provides running examples in extended Verilog that show how to:
(1) modify during the simulation the format (floating point or fixed
point), as well as the number of bits used for each field of the format
in the model of a low pass filter,
(2) perform without the need of explicit conversion functions
arithmetic operations with operands of type complex (Cartesian or
polar) or of matrices having elements of type complex, including the
computation of the inverse of such matrices,
(3) compute the pseudo inverse of matrices,
(4) separate data from its location using high level constructs such
as the "View as" and InitM constructs for multi-threading processing,
(5) perform fft, and fast autocorrelation,
(6) exchange FinSimMath data between modules,
(7) monitor special conditions such as overflow or underflow, and
(8) solve non-linear differential equations.
The latest progress involves performing inversion of matrices of up to 40,000x40,000 elements of type real. This capability allows to solve large
systems of equations. Preliminary results show that the current technology can be extended to 4,000,000x4,000,000 using multi-threading and to 40,000,000x40,000,000 using a dedicated chip.
