ParaMat is a software package that allows existing PC-based MATLAB
and Simulink applications to benefit easily from a parallel processing system based on the Alpha AXP RISC processor. The underlying hardware platform is scaleable and can provide GFlops of performance to suit the application needs. No detailed knowledge of parallel processing techniques by the programmer is required. The booting of the multiprocessor network is automatic and efficient kernel level interprocessor communication facilities are provided. Application Areas: Aerospace; Application development tools; Data analysis/modeling; Educational instruction; Financial analysis/modeling/services; Hydraulics/pneumatics; Machine vision; Manufacturing; Mechanics/compression systems; Satellite design; System identification.
