SYCL Adoption and Conformance Testing

SYCL Adopter Login

Any company may freely use the publicly released SYCL specification to create a product, but implementations of the SYCL API must be tested for conformance in the Khronos SYCL Adopters program before the SYCL name or logo may be used in association with an implementation of the API.

Implementers may join the Khronos SYCL Adopters Program which enables them to download and execute the SYCL conformance tests and upload the results for peer review within Khronos.  If the implementation successfully passes the tests, the Adopter is granted a royalty-free trademark license to use the SYCL name and logo in association with that implementation - and they can refer to the implementation as being SYCL conformant or SYCL compliant.

Benefits of the SYCL Adopters program:

  • Access to the SYCL conformance test source code
  • Participation in the SYCL Adopters technical Mailing list - a private priority channel for two-way interaction with the SYCL working group over the specification and conformance tests
  • Conformant products may use the SYCL name and logo
  • Company listing on the Conformant Products pages
