OpenCL CodeBench™ from Amdahl Software Streamlines OpenCL™ Software Creation.
Englewood, Co, USA, October 25, 2012 – Amdahl Software, an innovator in development tools for multi-core software, today announced the beta release of OpenCL CodeBench.
OpenCL CodeBench is a code creation and productivity tools suite designed to accelerate and simplify OpenCL software development. OpenCL CodeBench provides developers with automation tools for host code and unit test bench generation. Kernel code development on OpenCL is accelerated and enhanced through a language aware editor delivering advanced incremental code analysis features. Development tasks that would normally take hours are reduced to minutes, in part because users work at a higher level of abstraction. Software Programmers new to OpenCL can choose to be guided through an Eclipse™ wizard, while the power users can leverage the command line interface with XML-based configuration files. The result is a high quality OpenCL project with unified and compatible host and kernel code, rapidly developed in a streamlined and organized environment.
“The semiconductor and software industries are moving rapidly toward multi-core,” states Erik Duymelinck, architect and lead developer of OpenCL CodeBench. “Multi-core software development is not simple and software development tools have not kept pace with the emergence of multi-core processor architectures and systems. A consequence is extended product development time.”
Erik added, “OpenCL CodeBench was designed to empower software engineers and provide them with the resources required to realize higher productivity.”
At the heart of OpenCL CodeBench is a state-of-the-art parser. The core technology enables a myriad of productivity features: semantic checking, syntax coloring, code completion, and annotations with quick fixes, to name a few. The kernel editor, complemented with the powerful host code generator, make OpenCL CodeBench an essential tool for the multi-core software developer.
OpenCL CodeBench Beta is now available for Linux and Windows operating systems. We invite you to visit www.amdahlsoftware.com, test drive the tools for 30 days and form your own opinion.
