PRESS RELEASE

MultiCore Plus SDK

Mercury Computer Systems has released the new-generation MultiCore Plus SDK (Software Development Kit), which provides performance and productivity gains for computationally intensive high-performance computing (HPC) applications in aerospace and defence, wafer and mask inspection, beam writers, EDA, computational lithography, and more.

The MultiCore Plus SDK provides a cost-effective, seamless package of software development tools and libraries within a comprehensive programming framework specially designed for next-generation multicore processors such as the Cell BE processor. The SDK is an option for the 1U Dual Cell-Based System 2 and new enhancements focus on application performance and developer productivity. It is certified for compatibility with IBM products and services.
