Khronos to Create SYCL SC Open Standard for Safety-Critical C++ Based Heterogeneous Compute
Beaverton, OR – March 15, 2023 – Today, The Khronos® Group, an open consortium of industry-leading companies creating advanced interoperability standards, announces the creation of the SYCL™ SC Working Group to create a high-level heterogeneous computing framework for streamlining certification of safety-critical systems in automotive, avionics, medical, and industrial markets. SYCL SC will leverage the proven SYCL 2020 standard for parallel programming of diverse computing devices using standard C++17. Over the past year, the safety-critical community has gathered in the Khronos SYCL Safety-Critical Exploratory Forum to build consensus on use cases and industry requirements to catalyze and guide the design of this new open standard. The SYCL SC Working Group is open to any Khronos member, and Khronos membership is open to any company.
