Xilinx SDAccel development environment for OpenCL, C, and C++, achieves Khronos Conformance

Xilinx SDAccel development environment for OpenCL, C, and C++, achieves Khronos ConformanceXilinx, Inc. announced that the SDAccel development environment for OpenCL, C, and C++ is now Khronos OpenCL 1.0 standard compliant. The OpenCL standard provides a uniform programming environment for software developers to write efficient, portable code enabling a rich range of algorithms to be easily accelerated on Xilinx FPGAs. SDAccel, the newest member of the SDx family, includes an architecturally optimizing compiler for OpenCL, C, and C++ and is proven to deliver up to 25X better performance/watt compared to CPUs or GPUs and 3X the performance and resource efficiency of other FPGA solutions.
