Altera Corporation announced that goHDR achieved a significant reduction in development time and a dramatic increase in performance leveraging Altera's OpenCL for FPGAs. Working closely with Altera, goHDR ported its proprietary C-code to the OpenCL standard and implemented the code in an FPGA in less than a week - a process that typically requires 3-6 months using a traditional HDL flow.

MulticoreWare Inc. has announced the Multicore Cross-platform Architecture (MXPA), an OpenCL runtime and compiler, enabling cross-architecture performance from a single, unified codebase. MXPA is designed to preserve the expression of parallelism in OpenCL, independent of vendor hardware and software stack implementation. MXPA currently supports x86 architectures and is being extended to a wide range of platforms from CPUs to DSPs with minimal vendor support.
