On this web page we show examples of GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) computing applied to Electromagnetic Applications such as antenna near-field simulation, near-field measurements using phase retrieval, conformal FDTD, Physical Optics, Geometrical Optics and GTD. As the web page develops in the future, we will discuss code issues for nVidia CUDA devices using C/CUDA.

An introduction to GPU computing can be found at the following nVidia link.


The videos posted here demonstrate the capabilities of the gamers orientated GTX480 general purpose graphics card, which has about 700GFLOP/s maximum calculation capability in single precision.

The work reported here has and is being carried out at the Department of Telecommunications and Systems Engineering, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, 08193 Barcelona. 


The work has been and is being supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación) through grant TEC2009-13897-C03-02 and the CONSOLIDER-INGENIO 2010 program reference CSD2008-00068 and the European FEDER program through the project UNAB08-4E-005.
