Webinar: Introducing HCMP - A Heterogeneous Computing Middleware Platform

• Tags:

Be sure to join AJ Guillon, Yetiware and Yassine Hariri, PhD, CMC Microsystems tomorrow November 8th for the webinar 'Introducing HCMP'. As heterogeneity increases, the gap between the application layer and the hardware layer increased as well. To reduce this gap, we introduce a heterogeneous computing middleware platform (HCMP), which provides middleware that significantly reduces the complexity of developing industrial-strength heterogeneous computing software. Complex tasks such as multi-device memory management, device I/O, kernel scheduling, and dependency management are handled by the platform so that users can focus on writing their applications instead of adhering to complicated specifications.
