    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The utilization of vector-arithmetic logic units is a promising way to speed up FDTD computations from the viewpoint of hardware acceleration. This paper studies how a streaming SIMD extensions (SSE) implementation can be effi ciently developed, and the situation where SSE is benefi cial for FDTD computations. © 1990-2011 IEEE.
