The Stencil and Tensor Accelerator (STX) is a project, led by a team of Fraunhofer ITWM, in which we develop energy-efficient supercomputer systems based on European technology together with our partners. The focus is on a consistent hardware software co-design approach. Together with our SpinOff – UNEEC Systems GmbH – European supercomputer technology shall take a leading role worldwide.
In doing so, we make use of the latest RISC-VOpen Source hardware developments. Our holistic approach includes a proprietary System-on-Chip, PCIe card (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) and HPC rack architecture. Through the co-design approach, the STX system concept combines an innovative architecture, highest energy efficiency and easy programmability for highly parallel simulation applications.
