Better tools for better code

A module within the AXIS Pro tool suite, AXIS Takyon is an open application programming interface (API) library providing peer-to-peer data communication between multiple entities in a heterogenous computer system. It simplifies the way CPUs, GPUs and sub-systems connect and move data. Developing with Takyon improves coding efficiency by unifying all network applications under a single API compared to the multi-API solutions most often used today.

Ready to code faster?

Easy to learn and adopt, the AXIS Takyon API is intuitive in naming convention and concept and is equipped with extensive documentation and example material. This reduces the average time to deployment from months to weeks.

Do more with less

Takyon dramatically reduces source code footprint and simplifies the number of external APIs necessary to achieve a specified functionality.\

This single, multi-purpose API reduces the developer’s API toolbox, supporting faster deployment of peer-to-peer application software across a range of high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) applications including radar, sonar, SIGINT, and image processing.

A fully open source reference implementation is available along with an optimized, feature rich commercial implementation providing RDMA support for low latency data movement between CPU and GPU compute entities.

Abaco Systems

Abaco's history goes back more than 30 years, to the days of Plessey Microsystems in the UK – one of the first adopters worldwide of the ‘new’ VME standard. A management buyout saw Plessey become Radstone, who acquired ICS and Octec. Meanwhile, equally prominent embedded computing companies including SBS, VMIC and Condor Engineering were being acquired by GE to bolster its offering in that area – and Radstone was acquired by GE Fanuc Embedded Systems in September 2006. GE Fanuc Embedded Systems subsequently became GE Intelligent Platforms and, in September 2015, the embedded computing part of the business was acquired by Veritas Capital. The resulting business was named Abaco Systems.

We’re 700+ people, with our global headquarters in Huntsville, Alabama; a European headquarters and manufacturing site in Towcester, England; and offices throughout the world.
