Arm and Forschungszentrum Jülich sign multi-year collaboration agreement

Jülich, 18 May 2021 – Arm and the Forschungszentrum Jülich signed today a multi-year cooperation agreement. Its goal is to strengthen their joint effort in identifying the requirements of High Performance Computing (HPC) applications and advancing their porting and optimization on Arm-based architectures. Chips with Arm architecture are found in virtually all smartphones and the vast majority of tablet computers. In addition, Arm processors are also increasingly used in supercomputers, for example in the Japanese supercomputer Fugaku, currently the fastest computer in the world. The arm design is also the basis for the development of the first European HPC processors within the European Processor Initiative (EPI project), in which JSC is participating.

The collaboration focuses on the analysis and optimization of strategic HPC applications on Arm-based HPC systems, including Arm accelerated platforms (for example, Arm+GPU). The joint team carries on performance analysis and code engineering, taking advantage of specific features of Arm-based hardware to further advance application performance. The code requirements identified in this effort will help in the design of future HPC technologies and systems.
