Maxeler Technologies is proud to collaborate with our university partners on a range of joint research projects. If you are interested to become a MAX-UP member or if you are interested in writing a research grant proposal jointly with Maxeler, please contact Cliff Winckless.

Current projects

exa2pro-logo legato-logo sdk4ed_small
EXA2PRO will develop a programming environment that will enable the productive deployment of highly parallel applications for exascale computing systems. The LEGaTO project addresses the need for greater energy efficiency in the ICT sector. While there is already a trend towards using heterogeneous accelerators, LEGaTO will deliver a software stack that focuses achieving greater energy efficiency. The SDK4ED project will tackle the challenge of minimizing cost, time, and complexity of the software development processes, in particular for low-power and low-energy applications. This includes the automatic optimization of both software quality and non-functional requirements.
euroexa_logo VINEYARD logo
The EuroExa project will deliver a ground-breaking platform for extreme scale computing capable of 400 PFLOP peak performance with high energy efficiency by incorporating heterogeneous processing on reconfigurable hardware and focusing on dense system integration. VINEYARD aims to develop an integrated platform for energy-efficient data centres based on new servers with novel, coarse-grain and fine-grain programmable accelerators.

Past projects

extra_logo aegle_logo CloudLightning_logo
The EXTRA project targeted future exascale HPC applications through new architectures, tools that include reconfiguration as a design concept, and applications that are tuned to exploit run-time reconfiguration. AEGLE has provided cloud computing and accelerated HPC data analytics services for integrated and personalized healthcare services in Europe. The CloudLightning project has created a new way of provisioning heterogeneous cloud computing resources with reduced deployment and optimisation effort and improved efficiency through self-management.
cossim_logo QMlogo2 ProjectLogoSAVE
The COSSIM project has provided an open-source framework for seamlessly simulating both networking and processing parts of cyber-physical systems. Qualimaster focused on financial analysis by combining financial data streams and social web data, especially for analysis of systemic risk. SAVE has developed software/hardware technologies for efficient self-adaptive heterogeneous system architectures.
ProjectLogoPOLCA ProjectLogoHARNESS ProjectLogoFASTER
The POLCA project developed a new mathematically-oriented programming language that can target both embedded and high performance systems. HARNESS has developed technologies for enabling truly heterogeneous cloud computing, supporting diverse compute, storage and connectivity technologies. FASTER has focussed on a new level of application performance by developing hardware synthesis technologies that fully exploit the potential of reconfigurable hardware technologies.
HPCFinance has provided solutions for managing financial risks through High Performance Computing.
