For our research activities, we need a lot of computing power to perform compilation and execution tasks for mainly 3D TCAD simulation packages (see Software section).
In order to meet these requirements we use different infrastructure solutions.
Besides traditional CPU-based computing, we further facilitate modern GPUs for our device simulators through ViennaCL.
Therefore a dedicated GPU workstation is available:
Our calculations are carried out on the following GPUs:
Compilation and execution is distributed over our institute network. Each personal computer is integrated in a Linux environment
and can be controlled remotely for performing compilation or simulation tasks.
Our server cluster block consisting of 13 nodes, 248 cores and 1280 GB system memory provides a lot of computational power for large-scale simulations.
