We present simulation software utilizing graphical processing units (GPUs) for the physics of detectors based on arrays of transition-edge sensors (TES).
With the support of GPUs it is possible to perform simulations of large pixel arrays, making the software a powerful tool in detector development.
Comparisons with TES small-signal and noise theory confirm the representativity of the simulated data.
In order to demonstrate the capabilities of this approach we present its implementation in XIFUSIM, a simulator for the X-ray Integral Field Unit, a cryogenic X-ray spectrometer on board the future Athena X-ray observatory.
