AbstractPULSAR version 2.0, released in November 2014, is a complete programming platform for large-scale distributed memory systems with multicore processors and hardware accelerators. PULSAR provides a simple abstraction layer over multithreading, message passing, and multi-GPU, multi-stream programming. PULSAR offers a general-purpose programming model, suitable for a wide range of scientific and engineering applications. PULSAR was inspired by systolic arrays, popularized by Hsiang-Tsung Kung and Charles E. Leiserson.
