Micron Technology, one of the world's leading providers of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced the availability of the evaluation version of the Automata Processor (AP) software development kit (SDK). With the new SDK, developers can design and test advanced applications in areas such as bioinformatics, video/image analytics, and network security, which require high performance, computational efficiency and highly parallel processing capabilities.

Micron announced the AP, a dramatically new parallel processing architecture, to the industry at the 2013 Supercomputing Conference. The AP is a unique and scalable computing fabric that allows users to harness the power of tens of thousands to millions of processing elements. The AP SDK enables users to connect these elements and create a task-specific processing engine capable of solving big data problems with unprecedented performance.

"Micron's Automata Processor technology is a radical departure from traditional compute offload accelerators," said Paul Teich, CTO and Senior Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. "Micron's technology has the potential to accelerate high-value segments of big data pattern recognition for complex, unstructured data streams, some of which are not economical to address at scale today."

"By providing a fundamentally new and powerful technology, plus the tools to operate and program it, Micron is providing developers and customers an entirely new way to power their innovation," said Paul Dlugosch, director of Automata Processor development for Micron's compute and networking business unit. "One of the most challenging problems facing the developer community today is programmer productivity. In many cases, productivity is lost as developers work to identify and implement high levels of parallelism on conventional architectures. The Automata Processor and SDK will provide a new alternative for implementing very high levels of hardware parallelism without the complexities associated with von Neumann-style architectures."
