NSITEXE, Kyoto Microcomputer and Codeplay Software Bringing Open Standards Programming to RISC-V Vector Processor

EDINBURGH, Scotland, Oct. 29, 2020 — Codeplay Software Ltd, leaders in enabling acceleration technologies, announced today that software developers working on HPC and AI for embedded systems will be able to take advantage of industry defined open standards from The Khronos Group on RISC-V architectures, thanks to Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (“NEDO”) project in which NSITEXE and Kyoto Microcomputer Co., Ltd. (“KMC”) are participating.

NSITEXE and KMC have ordered an implementation of LLVM for RISC-V Vector Extension Processor (“RVV”), and also Codeplay’s ComputeAorta and ComputeCpp, efficient and high performance implementations of OpenCL and SYCL open standards. In the NEDO project, as a research, NSITEXE develops OpenCL and SYCL compilers from LLVM to utilize RVV, and KMC implements vector syntax to utilize RVV efficiently based on LLVM and Clang. These research developments will contribute to RISC-V community to support open-standard technologies.
