New Pareon tool from Vector Fabrics smooths multicore software optimization
Eindhoven, June 1st, 2012
Vector Fabrics, a company that specializes in programming tools to optimize software for multicore architectures, today announced the launch of its new development tool, Pareon™.
Pareon allows software developers to optimize their applications for multicore systems in hours or days, a task that typically takes weeks or months to complete. The tool’s analysis engine prevents hard-to-find and hard-to-reproduce threading bugs, while its hardware modelling engine prevents the developer from writing code that introduces performance bottlenecks or even causes slowdowns. Pareon helps developers address the consumer’s demand for fast, high-quality, and responsive applications.
Mike Beunder, CEO of Vector Fabrics, says, “All recent mobile phones, tablets, laptops and desktops have multicore architectures inside. However, optimizing apps for multicore architectures is hard, error prone, and takes lots of time. As a result, a lot of software isn’t optimized yet and dual-core or quad-core devices provide minimal speed-ups. Pareon assists developers in truly optimizing their software for multicore, allowing them to close this gap and removing the barrier to increase the performance of their applications. We see typical speed-ups of 1.7x on dual-core and 3.5x on quad-core processors.”
