Open Source GPU Debuts @eetimes

CUPERTINO, Calif. – The first general-purpose graphics processor (GPGPU) now available as open-source RTL was unveiled at the Hot Chips event here. In a separate talk, another academic described an integrated open source processor with a core that’s more power efficient than a similar block from ARM. Although the GPGPU is in an early and relatively crude stage, it is another piece of an emerging open-source hardware platform, said Karu Sankaralingam, an associate professor of computer science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Sankaralingam led the team that designed the Many-core Integrated Accelerator of Wisconsin (MIAOW ). Big companies will someday be built leveraging open source hardware, just as multi-billion-dollar Web giants owe their existence to open source software. “Facebook couldn’t have gotten started if it wasn’t for PHP,” he said, referring to the popu...
