DMP Joins Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Foundation to Contribute Its Expertise in 3D Graphics and Common Compute
Tokyo, Japan– October30th, 2012 – Digital Media Professionals Inc. (DMP), a leading provider of 2D/3D graphics Intellectual Property (IP) cores, today announced it has joined to be new member and contributor to Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Foundation. HSA targets to push standard based architecture and interface for common computing use cases between CPU and GPU for the effective and hardware accelerated performance and power consumption in next generation compute platforms.
By supporting HSA Foundation initiative DMP wants to accelerate and simplify the application development for the mobile GPGPU platforms to benefit heterogeneous architectures and computing which enables smooth user experience for computer vision, image processing and graphics intensive applications in small consumer devices.
“Heterogeneous architectures on mobile GPGPU platforms will greatly benefit users looking for a seamless graphics and compute experience from their electronic devices,” said Greg Stoner vice president and managing director of the HSA Foundation. “With DMP’s commitment to driving the HSA standard forward, the integration of their technology in next generation mobile, embedded and consumer electronic platforms will change the way consumers interact with their devices.”
“We are thrilled to join HSA foundation as an active contributor and look forward to working with consortium to push and accelerate the usage of standard heterogeneous architecture in next generation mobile, embedded and consumer devices,” said Tatsuo Yamamoto, CEO of DMP. “We see that supporting the HSA DMP can expand and deepen our touch for application development ecosystem and several vertical industries that will benefit by using DMP graphics IP core for next generation consumer devices.”
About the HSA Foundation
The HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) Foundation is a not-for-profit consortium for SoC IP vendors, OEMs, academia, SoC vendors, OSVs and ISVs whose goal is to make it easy to program for parallel computing. HSA members are building a heterogeneous compute ecosystem, rooted in industry standards, for combining scalar processing on the CPU with parallel processing on the GPU while enabling high bandwidth access to memory and high application performance at low power consumption. HSA defines interfaces for parallel computation utilizing CPU, GPU and other programmable and fixed function devices, and support for a diverse set of high-level programming languages, thereby creating the next foundation in general purpose computing.
