NaNet is an FPGA-based PCIe X8 Gen2 NIC supporting 1/10 GbE links and the custom 34 Gbps APElink channel. The design has GPUDirect RDMA capabilities and features a network stack protocol offloading module, making it suitable for building low-latency, real-time GPU-based computing systems. We provide a detailed description of the NaNet hardware modular(More)
We describe a pilot project for the use of GPUs in a real-time triggering application in the early trigger stages at the CERN NA62 experiment, and the results of the first field tests together with a prototype data acquisition (DAQ) system. This pilot project within NA62 aims at integrating GPUs into the central L0 trigger processor, and also to use them as(More)
The ^{17}O(p,α)^{14}N reaction plays a key role in various astrophysical scenarios, from asymptotic giant branch stars to classical novae. It affects the synthesis of rare isotopes such as ^{17}O and ^{18}F, which can provide constraints on astrophysical models. A new direct determination of the E_{R}=64.5  keV resonance strength performed at the Laboratory(More)
1. Attributing their origin to specific types of stars, however, often proves difficult. Intermediate-mass stars of 4–8 solar masses are expected to have contributed a large fraction of meteoritic stardust 2,3. Yet, no grains have been found with the characteristic isotopic compositions expected for such stars 4,5. This is a long-standing puzzle, which(More)
The ^{22}Ne(p,γ)^{23}Na reaction takes part in the neon-sodium cycle of hydrogen burning. This cycle affects the synthesis of the elements between ^{20}Ne and ^{27}Al in asymptotic giant branch stars and novae. The ^{22}Ne(p,γ)^{23}Na reaction rate is very uncertain because of a large number of unobserved resonances lying in the Gamow window. At proton(More)
This article presents the outcomes of a bibliographic review about hygiene and eye care in critically ill patient. Such aspect of nursing, in spite of being pertinent to daily practice, produces several variables that could be subject to scientific investigation. A structured algorithm for eye care is describe in critical ill patients management, and care(More)
We describe a pilot project (GAP-GPU Application Project) for the use of GPUs (Graphics processing units) in online triggering applications for High Energy Physics experiments. Two major trends can be identified in the development of trigger and DAQ systems for particle physics experiments: the massive use of general-purpose commodity systems such as(More)
