First OpenCL application captured!

Today we performed the first capture of an OpenCL application from the LPGPU2 tooling running on a Samsung phone:

This is a big step forward in functionality and we will continue to broaden our API support as we move forwards.

Samsung adds a new team member!

Alistair has been a software engineer for almost 20 years. After graduating from Edinburgh’s Heriot-Watt University, Alistair started working for a Games company in Gateshead. One project he worked on was “Le Mans 24 hours” racing game, which used a lot of code written by Codeplay’s Andrew Richards! Alistair then moved to working at 3Dlabs, validating their graphics hardware before moving into the media team, writing video codec drivers. Following this, Alistair worked at Intel on several GPU based projects, from Android and Windows codec drivers, to capturing graphics hardware state on OSX. Alistair has now joined the LPGPU2 Team at Samsung.

Alistair will be working on extending the supported API’s across the supported platforms and whatever else Martyn asks him too.

 His interests are: travelling, gardening, classic cars (if only the garage was bigger!) and music (collecting vinyl, and gigging).


LPGPU2 On…. Science

Katerina from Think Silicon shares this interesting article:

Science – A caterpillar that eats and digests plastic

There was a recent discovery that could potentially have a great impact on the environmental problem of plastic. A bee hive parasite, that naturally digest bee wax, is found to also digest plastic with a phenomenon rate. In 12 hours the 100 wax moths had eaten 92 milligrams of plastics. Of course more study should be done, possibly to identify the ensume that helps the moth to break up the chemical bonds of the polyethylene molecules.

LPGPU2 team have successful review!

On May 11th 2017 the LPGPU2 consortium went to Brussels for the half way review of the LPGPU2 project. This is a very important milestone and allows the EU to assess the work that has been done to date and the future plans of the consortium.

We had a very successful outcome with all deliverables being accepted as is. This is a very solid foundation for the consortium to build from as we move into the latter half of the project.

Congratulations Team!

Getting to Know…TUB

TU Berlin is participating in the LPGPU2 project through the Embedded Systems Architectures (Architektur eingebetteter Systeme, AES) group of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The AES groups investigates and teaches the field of computer architecture, ranging from low-power embedded systems to massively parallel high-performance systems. Its current research focuses include multi-/many-core architectures and GPUs, development and optimization of highly scalable parallel applications, and (architecture support for) parallel programming models. More information about the AES group is available at http://www.aes.tu-berlin.de/en.
