Acceleware and QWED Partner to Accelerate Quickwave 3D Electromagnetic simulator by 10 times
Calgary, Alberta – June 1, 2006 – Poseidon Capital Corp. (the 'Corporation', trading symbol 'PSN' on TSXV) and its wholly owned subsidiary Acceleware Inc. are pleased to announce QWED Sp. z o. o. (QWED) as a partner. QWED's flagship QuickWave" electromagnetic software can now harness the power of Acceleware's FDTD hardware accelerators to augment simulation speeds by 7-10 times, on average, over traditional high-end processors. Hardware acceleration enables faster design turn-around times for microwave cavities, antennas, waveguides, microstrip circuits and more.
Faster simulations allow companies to drastically cut costs, dramatically increase productivity, thereby, positively impacting ROI. Hardware acceleration not only enables faster time-to-market but also allows the opportunity to optimize and iterate development to create a highly refined end product. "We believe that integrating Acceleware's product family with our QuickWave software solution will help to deepen existing business relationships while fostering new and broader market opportunities," states Dr. Wojciech Gwarek, President of QWED.
Ryan Schneider, CTO of Acceleware adds, "QWED is a solid company, one of the leaders in the field, and they have a competitive product that can be used to solve sophisticated microwave engineering problems. We look forward to building a strong business relationship with them."
Acceleware develops and markets hardware accelerators used to reduce the run-times of high performance computing (HPC) applications such as cell-phone design, seismic data processing, nano-materials research, protein folding and drug discovery, reservoir simulation, lithography mask design, and others. Acceleware products are distributed by Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software companies to end-users at the world's largest companies in a wide range of industries. A simulation that would have otherwise taken eight hours, may only take 15 minutes with Acceleware's v1.5 generation of products. The v2.0 generation will be released in the summer of 2006. Acceleware has identified the following markets for its technology: electromagnetics; energy; biomedical; fluid dynamics; molecular chemistry; industrial; and military.
