Keywords:cloud computing? CPU? GPU? system IP?

Sonics Inc. has become a contributor member of the Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Foundation, collaborating with other major industry leaders to support the parallel computing efforts for next-generation heterogeneous processors.�The foundation aims to help drive a unified, open industry standard architecture for heterogeneous processing, and build a strong heterogeneous compute ecosystem for the embedded, mobile and cloud computing markets.

As a contributor member, Sonics will assist with research and development, participate in and contribute extensively to the work groups, gain early access to specifications and be well positioned to provide system IP to semiconductor companies building SoCs that adopt the HSA architecture by ensuring Sonics' products are specification-compliant.�Sonics will also collaborate with the members of the HSA Foundation to help advance a common specification for CPUs and GPUs interaction, drive a single architecture specification and simplify the programming model so software developers can leverage the capabilities found in modern CPUs and GPUs.

"Sonics' addition to the HSA Foundation offers system IP support that will accelerate the development of a new class of heterogeneous processors," noted Greg Stoner, VP and managing director of the HSA Foundation.?"HSA is built on technological leadership and innovation from companies like Sonics that are creating unique experiences defined by a higher level of compute power and efficiency."
