Amdahl Software announced the latest major update to its flagship Eclipse plug-in, OpenCL CodeBench. With the recent 1.2 release, developers can now benefit from automatic host-code generation as they are coding their OpenCL kernels.
Intel is offering a tutorial demonstrating how SPIR can be generated by an Offline Compiler tool, and be consumed using the latest Intel OpenCL SDK. These capabilities open the door for other potential languages and programming models to access many heterogeneous platforms in a standard, portable and efficient way.
Xilinx technology experts will present and demonstrate solutions including acceleration of Monte Carlo options pricing simulations on x86 platform and the OpenCL design environment for Xilinx All Programmable devices.
OpenCL.NET is a .NET library, providing full API bindings for the OpenCL standard. Using GPU acceleration and OpenCL.NET, it is possible to achieve great performance in .NET based applications. CLFORTRAN aims to simplify integration of GPU resources for scientific computing in various fields of science that heavily relies on Fortran codes.
LibreOffice 4.2 was just released. The most significant addition is a new engine for Calc: massive parallel calculations of formula cells using GPU via OpenCL are now possible thanks to our new formular interpreter. The addition of OpenCL was enabled by AMD and MultiCoreWare.
A new tool for uploading 3D content with WebGL and scripting GLSL shaders online has been released. Currently models are uploaded directly from Blender. Everyone is welcome to upload their own art work.
Digital Media Professionals Inc announced that Olympus has selected DMP 2D/3D hybrid graphics IP core “SMAPH-H” for their OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1, the flagship model of a mirrorless system, integrating DSLR. SMAPH-H is a hybrid graphics IP core optimized for high-performance, high-quality user interfaces and mobile applications, supporting OpenVG 1.1 and OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0 APIs.
The next London WebGL Workshop will be Thursday, February 20, 2014 6:30PM. We'll be taking a look at some of three.js's features, and maybe a look at some alternatives. The venue will once again be the SkillsMatter on Goswell Road, London.
On Thursday 13 February 2014 the first Khronos meetup in Amsterdam will take place. The goal is to learn about open media-standards from The Khronos Group and others. So when OpenCV is discussed, we’ll also talk OpenVX. Speakers include Ton Roosendaal of the Blender Foundation talking Blender and OpenGL and Maarten and Jurjen of ThreeDee Media talking WebGL. Complete details are available here and here.
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.
