TERM DESCRIPTIONAssembly/Model An assembly is made up of a part of a physical product that contains multiple 3D sub-componentsor models.CAD Computer-aided design (CAD), also known as computer-aided drafting (CAD) or computer-aideddesign and drafting (CADD), is the use of computer systems to assist in the creation, modification,analysis, or optimization of a design. Computer-aided drafting describes the process of creatinga technical drawing with the use of computer software. CAD software is used to increase theproductivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve communications throughdocumentation, and to create a database for manufacturing.CAE Computer-aided-engineering (CAE) is the broad usage of computer software to aid in engineeringtasks. For example, CAE systems are able to simulate a design under a variety of conditions tosee if it actually works.Computational Simulations Computer simulation is the attempt to simulate through a computer model an abstract modelof a particular system, such as molecules and materials.CUDA NVIDIA®CUDA™ is a parallel computing platform and programming model invented by NVIDIA.It enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the graphicsprocessing unit (GPU).DCC Digital content creation is a term that refers to the creation and modification of digital content,such as animation, audio, graphics, images and video, as part of the production process beforepresentation in its final form. This large field encompasses many segments such as 3D graphics,audio editing, compositing, authoring, etc.Directives OpenACC Allows programmers to provide simple hints, known as directives, to the compiler to acceleratecode. With OpenACC directives, the code remains portable across many-core GPUs andmulti-core CPUs.Fermi NVIDIA®Fermi is the code name for the NVIDIA GPU architecture that launched in 2009. NVIDIAproducts built on the Fermi architecture have names such as Quadro 2000 or Tesla M2090, for example.Frame Buffer Frame buffer is dedicated memory on the graphics card similar to that which is used to storemodel geometry, textures, frames of video, etc.GPU Graphics processing unit with hundreds of compute cores, initially used as graphic processors.GPU Accelerator Now that GPUs have become programmable and computationally powerful, they are also usedto accelerate hundreds of scientific applications.GPU Computing or GPUAccelerated ComputingUse of a GPU (graphics processing unit) together with a CPU to accelerate general-purposescientific and engineering applications.GPU Ray Tracing Use of the GPU to greatly accelerate ray trace rendering in solutions such as Iray, VRay-RT,Octane, FinalRender, etc.GPU Test Drive A free and easy way for customers to try GPUs through a remotely-hosted CPU + GPU server.They can run popular applications, such as AMBER, NAMD or their own code.HPC High-performance computing is the use of parallel processing for running advanced applicationprograms efficiently, reliably and fast.Integrated Graphics Graphics hardware that is built into the CPU which shares both CPU hardware resources alongwith system memory. Only sufficient for very basic applications like email or word processing.ISV Independent software vendor, typically used to refer to professional software vendors such asAutodesk, Adobe, or Dassault Systèmes.GLOSSARY OF TERMSScientists studyingthe physics of theBig Bang need massivecomputing power.GPUs deliver 125x theperformance of othersystems.Scientists usingGPU-powered systemswere able to crack thegenetic code behind adeadly strain of E. coli.GLOSSARY
