Solving many of the most important scientific and engineering problems today requires the use of High Performance Computers. There are, however, several major issues currently facing the field. These include: the elusiveness of attaining high percentages of peak hardware performance; the difficulty of developing, debugging, and optimizing applications; and the high price and operating costs limiting access by many organizations with high computational needs.


A new type of computing called Deeply Coupled Computing, combined with system-on-a-chip technology, addresses these issues. In addition to increasing the performance of existing high performance programs, Deeply Coupled Computing enables the application of high-performance computing to a broad range of problems that cannot be solved using today’s architectures. This paper explains how CPU Tech applied Deeply Coupled Computing to one such problem and achieved a substantial improvement.
