Case Study: BerkeleyGW using Intel® Xeon Phi™ Processors

BerkeleyGW is a Materials Science application for calculating the excited state properties of materials such as band gaps, band structures, absoprtion spectroscopy, photoemission spectroscopy and more. It requires as input the Kohn-Sham orbitals and energies from a DFT code like Quantum ESPRESSO, PARATEC, PARSEC etc. Like such DFT codes, it is heavily dependent on FFTs, Dense Linear algebra and tensor contraction type operations similar in nature to those found in Quantum Chemistry applications.

  • Case Study: Many-Fermion Dynamics using Intel® Xeon Phi™ Processors

    Many-Fermion Dynamics---nuclear, or MFDn, is a configuration interaction (CI) code for nuclear structure calculations. It is a platform independent Fortran 90 code using a hybrid MPI/ OpenMP* programming model, and is being used on current supercomputers, such as Edison at NERSC, for ab initio calculations of atomic nuclei using realistic nucleon-nucleons and three-nucleon forces.

  • Intel Continues Quest for New Talent, as SMU Guildhall Dazzles With Fire and Ice

    Imagine that you are Kaya, a young woman of the northern tribe. Your people worship the nature goddess but, having fallen out of favor with this celestial being, are now denied the sacred knowledge of fire and ice. Your task: traverse an ancient temple to learn the power of these elemental forces and show your people the ways of balance. You achieve this by reaching the highest terrace, the Elemental Temple.

  • 案例研究:在英特尔® Edison 平台上实现 ZigBee*,助力构建智能会议系统

    1 - 简介

    在许多企业中,会议室的利用率非常低。 原因有两点: 员工可能会预定会议室,但是从来不会在预定时间使用,或者会议可能会提早结束,让会议室 处于闲置状态。

    我们开发了智能会议室系统(SCR 系统)来帮助解决这些问题。 SCR 系统包含英特尔® Edison 开发板、Arduino 扩展板、Android 智能手机、推送服 务器和 ZigBee 传感器(包括 ZigBee 光传感器、ZigBee 红外线传感器、ZigBee 智能插座和 ZigBee 报警器)。 借助该系统,我们可以检测到会议室内 的实时环境状况,我们的系统可以判断该会议室内是否有人并通知推送服务器安排会议室,帮助高效、便捷地使用会议室空间。

    ZigBee 是一套高级通信协议规范,用于使用小型低功耗数字无线技术构建创建个人局域网。 ZigBee 基于 IEEE 802.15.4 标准。 ZigBee 协议主要面 向需要低功耗且能够容忍低数据速率的嵌入式应用。 其创建的网络将使用非常少的功耗。 单个设备必须具备最少两年的电池续航时间才能够通过 ZigBee 认证。 家庭自动化(如智能占用传感器、智能照明和温控)是典型的 ZigBee 应用。
