Software-as-a-Service company Caps has announced the September 2011 release data of its Devdeck multi-level tool suite for "manycore" applications definition, porting, and optimization.
Aiming to ease developer concerns when programming with manycore-dedicated software tools, Caps says the Devdeck is aimed at guiding users through the whole applications development lifecycle thanks to its GPU-focused porting methodology and a wider product ecosystem including programming, debugging, profiling tools, and scientific libraries.
"With this new product offering we provide a set of tools to support Caps code migration methodology to efficiently help users in their manycore projects," said Francois Bodin, Caps CTO. " The Devdeck package will be user specific, whether it will address a developer ('Devdeck Developer'), a large company/computing center ('Devdeck Enterprise'), or a constructor/integrator ('Devdeck OEM'). "
All packages will include Caps software development tools:
- HMPP Hybrid Compiler
- HMPP Wizard (Interactive diagnosis tool to improve GPU kernels)
- HMPP Performance Analyzer (Dynamic expert analyses that help developers tune their HMPP codelets)
The Devdeck Developer release will be completed with the ALLINEA Debugger DDT 3.0 that fully supports HMPP and enables the user to debug its NVIDIA GPU application at a high level as well as scientific libraries. The Devdeck Enterprise will also provide companies with an additional and customizable expertise associated to their manycore project.
