The Jacket platform consists of a runtime and language processing system that automatically optimizes existing applications or new algorithms for GPU computing. Jacket currently supports the MATLAB language as a frontend to the platform. Jacket's language processing system automatically translates MATLAB code to high performance primitives required for best utilization of Nvidia, CUDA capable GPUs. Working in concert with the translation system, Jacket's runtime system optimizes memory transfers, compiles code on-the-fly for realtime tuned performance, and launches GPU kernels efficiently for maximal performance. All GPU-specific programming details are handled by Jacket, freeing the user to focus on science, engineering, and analytics.
