The Xyce Parallel Circuit Simulator, which has demonstrated scalable circuit simulation on hundreds of processors, heavily leverages the high-performance scientific libraries provided by Trilinos. With the move towards multi-core CPUs and GPU technology, retaining this scalability on future parallel architectures will be a challenge. This paper will discuss how Trilinos is an enabling technology that will optimize the trade-off between effort and impact for application codes, like Xyce, in their transition to becoming next-generation simulation tools.
