HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 17 Oct. 2016. Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing version 7.0 of the AXIS software tool for developing high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) applications such as radar, sonar, signals intelligence, and image processing.

AXIS is a suite of tools and libraries that complement the tools and libraries available from the open community to help developers improve application efficiency, reduce development time, help meet challenging size, weight and power (SWaP) targets.

It is portable across different operating systems, processor architectures, and fabrics. The scalable AXIS-developed applications can run on target systems with only a few cores or hundreds of distributed processing cores.

By shielding developers from the underlying hardware, AXIS enables them to focus on the application. AXIS also helps ease and speed debugging and optimizing.

The AXIS View graphic user interface (GUI) helps the software engineer create, configure, build, load, run, scale, visualize, and tune several applications across distributed multi-threaded, multicore, multi-node platforms from one user interface.

AXIS 7.0 includes an enhanced EventView performance analysis tool; a DataView toolkit to ease the use of GUIs in embedded applications; an updated version of AXIS MPI with improved performance and NVIDIA GPUDirect support; support for ARM processors and the NVIDIA Tegra K1 and X1; and support for all of Abaco's hardware platforms.
