COMPANY

A deep tech startup based in Basel (Switzerland).

Mynatix is a deep tech startup based in Basel (Switzerland) that focuses on compiler technologies for parallel computing. Its «Latency-Optimized Code Segmentation» principle (LACOS; patent application published and country registrations in process) has shown in proof-of-concepts a high potential for optimizing code to multicore hardware. Basically, LACOS includes Read-after-read (RAR) data dependencies between instructions what enables a novel approach to auto-parallelize software codes.

Mynatix aims to learn more about the specific added value of LACOS by developing a first service product for software developers. For additional business opportunities such as Kernel, compiler or chip development, Mynatix is seeking for cooperations, licencing agreements but also (partial) selling of IP.

CHALLENGE

It’s all about speed and energy.

  • Mankind tries to address most of today’s major challenges (e.g. climate change, logistic supply chains) by applying information technology.
  • High performance computing aims to exploit big, and bigger, data in order to understand faster, and decide better, on a vast range of important questions.
  • Performance is critical in this quest for progress: the faster and more efficient a code is run to analyze data, the better these questions can be answered.
  • A pivotal breakthrough has been the emergence of multicore processors that has led to substantial progress in running software.
  • Now, mynatix is bringing parallelity to the link between hardware and software through its novel approach, based on fundamental physical principles – simple in essence but complex in application!

CHALLENGE

It’s all about speed and energy.

PRINCIPLE

From code to segments.

  • Standard compiling works by either splitting code into basic blocks, translating the available machine instructions and optimizing for a given computing unit, or manually parallelizing specific code to multiple computing units.
  • LACOS includes Read-after-read (RAR) data dependencies between instructions to group instructions with Read-after-write dependencies in seperate segments.
  • Therefore, LACOS segments the code automatically into its smallest possible sequential parts by considering all inherent data dependencies and extracting the potential transfers – as experienced programmers do manually.
  • This novel approach is to be applied to a given code to be segmented. The unique segmentation can be used to optimize scheduling to a parallel platform by machine-learning methods (not part of LACOS itself).
