Foster City, Calif.--5:00pm PST, Friday June 6th, 2008-- Fintronic USA, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance Verilog simulators announced, as part of it support for FinSimMath, Matrix Inversion using variable precision arithmetic.

Dr. Alec Stanculescu, CEO and President of Fintronic USA, stated "The time has arrived for the development of architectures for advanced mathematical calculations, and FinSimMath supports the development of such architectures. The capability of FinSim to efficiently invert large matrices using hundreds of bits for the mantissa opens up new possibilities".

     ABOUT FinSimMath

FinSimMath, an extension of Verilog for Mathematical computations is described in chapter 8 of FinSim's User's Guide, available for download on www.fintronic.com/support.html.

The tutorial available on Fintronic's WEB site at (www.fintronic.com/finmath.html) provides running examples in extended Verilog that show how to: (1) modify during the simulation the format (floating point or fixed point), as well as the number of bits used for each field of the format in the model of a low pass filter, (2) perform without the need of explicit conversion functions arithmetic operations with operands of type complex (Cartesian or polar) or of matrices having elements of type complex, including the computation of the inverse of such matrices, (3) compute the pseudo inverse of matrices, (4) separate data from its location using high level constructs such as the "View as" and InitM constructs for multi-threading processing, (5) perform fft, and fast autocorrelation, (6) exchange FinSimMath data between modules, and (7) monitor special conditions such as overflow or underflow.

The latest progress involves performing matrix inversion using large number of bits for the mantissa. This capability allows to solve large systems of equations with ill conditioned coefficients, using the best choice for the number of bits for the mantissa.

FinSim supports the modeling of mathematical computation in an efficient way. For example, the 47 by 47 Pascal matrix (with elements in the range of 1 to 10**26) can be inverted in less than 6 seconds on a 1.8GHz AMD Opteron running FinSim version 9_3_49 or higher."
