ATS-GPU-BASE 4.0 is a software library developed by AlazarTech that transfers data acquired by its family of PCI Express waveform digitizers to a CUDA-enabled Graphical Processing unit (GPU) at sustained transfer rates as high as 6.9 GB/s. Data is presented in GPU memory as a buffer queue. Expert-level GPU programmers can create very high performance custom kernels to manipulate this data using an easy-to-use application programming interface (API). Fundamentally, ATS-GPU-BASE solves the problem of transferring data from a waveform digitizer to a GPU at very high speeds.
One example of such high performance kernel is the optional ATS-GPU-OCT library (sold separately), which acquires data using ATS-GPU-BASE and then implements full OCT signal processing algorithm using CUDA kernels. ATS-GPU-OCT was benchmarked at up to 950,000 4K FFTs per second, demonstrating the power and efficiency of the ATS-GMA-BASE platform.
The number of possible applications of ATS-GPU-BASE is limitless. In fact, it is limited only by application requirements and the imagination of the programmer.
