HUNTSVILLE, AL, UNITED STATES, May 18, 2021 / – AMETEK Abaco Systems announces AXIS Takyon, an open application programming interface (API) library providing peer-to-peer data communication between multiple entities in a heterogeneous computer system. It supports code development efficiency by unifying all network applications under a single API compared to the multi-API solutions most often used today. This both maximizes the availability of hardware in the system and reduces programming errors by reducing the amount of code required. AXIS Takyon will be delivered as a new AXIS Pro software module.

AXIS Takyon offers a unified approach that enables customers to do more in less time with less complexity. With this portable API, developers can deploy Takyon as is in different environments without major migration time. Easy to learn and adopt, the AXIS Takyon API is intuitive in terms of naming convention and concept, equipped with extensive documentation and sample hardware. This cuts the average deployment time from several months to a few weeks. The Takyon API interface greatly simplifies the intercommunication of CPUs, GPUs and subsystems. This greatly reduces the source code footprint and simplifies the number of external APIs required to achieve the same functionality. This single, versatile API replaces multiple APIs, reducing the developer’s API toolkit, supporting faster deployment of peer-to-peer application software using system hardware capabilities.

This product is designed to be one-way, copyless, and to receive notifications with the introduction of predictable, measurable, and repeatable disturbances in send / receive activity. With fault-tolerant hooks, AXIS Takyon detects timeouts and disconnects during node-to-node binding. It can be used in a range of High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) applications including radar, sonar, SIGINT, and image processing.

Pete Thompson, vice president of product management at Abaco Systems, Inc. said, “Abaco continues to invest in software tools that reduce deployment and development time for our customers. AXIS Takyon is more complete, more efficient and more efficient than other tools available on the market. Our commitment to innovation alleviates the software burden of deploying HPEC applications and helps our customers succeed. “

A fully open source reference implementation is available with an optimized and feature-rich commercial implementation providing RDMA support for low latency data movement between CPU and GPU compute entities.
