An Introduction to OpenCL for Altera FPGAs webinar

• Tags: Video Training Webinar OpenCL FPGA

An informative 25 minute introduction on how to program Altera FPGAs with OpenCL. Presented by Acceleware, the webinar begins with an overview of the OpenCL programming model and data parallelism, before discussing simple OpenCL syntax, kernels and memory spaces. The second part of the webinar examines how OpenCL is mapped to Altera FPGA architecture and how to compile an OpenCL kernel. The presentation concludes with a summary of OpenCL optimizations techniques.    Read More

Build 3D applications with the WebGL-based MontageJS 3D component

• Tags: windows Browser glTF WebGL COLLADA macOS Build 3D applications with the WebGL-based MontageJS 3D component

MontageJS has introduced a new WebGL-based component for the MontageJS framework. The 3D view component for MontageJS offers an abstraction layer for WebGL and aims to make the individual elements of a 3D scene just as easy to manipulate as conventional HTML elements in the page DOM. If your browser has WebGL enabled, you can try out a demo here. The MontageJS 3D view component is designed to load and display glTF content. The COLLADA working group provides Mac and Windows open source converters to translate COLLADA files into glTF.   Read More

Khronos Releases SPIR 1.2 Specification for Portable Encoding of OpenCL Device Programs

• Tags: SPIR OpenCL

The Khronos Group today announced the ratification and public release of the SPIR 1.2 specification that provides a non-source encoding, and binary level portability, for OpenCL 1.2 device programs. SPIR (Standard Portable Intermediate Representation) is the industry's first open, cross-platform Intermediate Representation standard for portable heterogeneous parallel computing and is based on LLVM IR. SPIR enables developers to avoid exposing sensitive kernel source and enables a diversity of language front-ends to easily target OpenCL platforms and devices in addition to OpenCL C. The SPIR specification and registry can be found on the Khronos website.    Read More

Intel XDK Updates For HTML5 Developers

• Tags: android WebGL

Intel has released an update to the Intel XDK (cross-platform development kit). At the heart of Crosswalk is the Blink rendering and layout engine, which provides the same HTML5 features and capabilities expected in the modern web runtimes such as WebGL and Web Audio. However, with Crosswalk, one can see enhanced JavaScript, WebGL, and Audio performance on Android 4.x devices.   Read More
