Redhat talks OpenCL to define a programming interface for FPGA accelerators

Jon Masters, a chief ARM architect at Red Hat has talked to FPGA makers about starting an initiative to define a programming interface for FPGA accelerators, probably based on OpenCL. Such an interface should include standard drivers that support PCI Express virtualization and be available for download on system boot up. IBM and Xilinx announced a multi-year strategic collaboration to jointly develop FPGA accelerators for OpenPower systems that target data centers and network function virtualization for carriers. They are collaborating on a cloud-based service for FPGA acceleration and will work on enabling programming FPGAs in C, C++ and OpenCL

Xilinx and IBM to Enable FPGA-Based Acceleration within SuperVessel OpenPOWER Development Cloud

Khronos Group members Xilinx and IBM announced they will be enabling FPGA-based acceleration within the SuperVessel OpenPOWER development cloud. Development of performance demanding applications including big data analytics and machine learning is enabled by the Xilinx SDAccel Development Environment, hosted in SuperVessel. SDAccel allows application developers to describe their algorithms in OpenCL, C, and C++ and compile directly to Xilinx FPGA-based acceleration boards. The hosted environment will make FPGA-based application development faster and more accessible to a broad global community of developers.
