### Description

I will present lattice investigations into the thermal phase structure of the Berenstein--Maldacena--Nastase deformation of maximally supersymmetric Yang--Mills quantum mechanics. The phase diagram of the theory depends on both the temperature $T$ and the deformation parameter $\mu$, through the dimensionless ratios $T / \mu$ and $g = \lambda / \mu^3$ with $\lambda$ the 't Hooft coupling. We determine the deconfinement $T / \mu$ for couplings $g$ that span three orders of magnitude, to interpolate between the weak-coupling perturbative prediction and large-$N$ dual supergravity calculations in the strong-coupling limit. Analyzing multiple lattice sizes up to $N_{\tau} = 24$ and numbers of colors up to $N = 16$ allows initial checks of the large-$N$ continuum limit.
