Machine learning-ready FPGAs from the edge to the cloud with OpenVX and OpenCL

Xilinx, Inc announced expansion into a wide range of vision guided machine learning applications with the Xilinx reVISION stack. Developers with limited hardware expertise can use a C/C++/OpenCL development flow with industry-standard frameworks and libraries like Caffe and OpenCV to develop embedded vision applications on a single Zynq SoC or MPSoC. For application level development, Xilinx supports industry-standard frameworks including Caffe for machine learning and OpenVX for computer vision.

Last week was GDC, and a ton of new tech, as well as new VR games and apps were announced and broadcast out to millions. But one of the most important stories out of GDC was also one of the least flashy. It was a gathering held by a nonprofit known as The Khronos Group, and it dealt directly with how much new VR hardware and software is being released, and how it is rapidly becoming more and more difficult for developers to keep up. Say Hello to OpenXR.

Imagination’s Furian GPU a massive step up in performance with OpenCL 2.0, Vulkan 1.0 and OpenVX 1.1

Furian is designed to address the increasing compute requirements across multiple applications and market segments with efficient use of compute APIs including OpenCL 2.0, Vulkan 1.0 and OpenVX 1.1*. Furian adds a bi-directional GPU/CPU coherent interface for efficient sharing of data; and a transition to user mode queues from kernel mode queues which reduces latency and CPU utilization for compute operations. Based on a published Khronos specification, GPUs based on the PowerVR Furian architecture are expected to pass the Khronos Conformance Testing Process. Current conformance status can be found at www.khronos.org/conformance.

Interview with OpenXR Working Group Chair Nick Whiting

Nick Whiting is the elected OpenXR Working Group Chair and technical director of AR and VR at Epic Games. “VR and AR have experienced a boom of interest recently, and with that, a flood of hardware and software companies have begun spinning up efforts in the field,” Khronos said in a news release. “While variety is great, the growing number of devices, each with their own incompatible APIs is increasing fragmentation.” The key issue now, Whiting said, is timing. Read the complete interview.
