Portable Computing Language (POCL) – Open Source Accelerator Framework for OpenCL

Hardware accelerators are power efficient implementations of challenging algorithms in heterogeneous computing platforms which are used to make key tasks in applications such as video codecs or machine vision pipelines faster, more power efficient, and less chip area consuming. Fixed function hardware accelerators are the latest class of devices Portable Computing Language (<a href=“http://portablecl.org”>POCL</a>) adds to its diverse palette of supported device types in the same OpenCL context.
