AUSTIN, Texas, March 2, 2017 -- Further strengthening its commitment to support all popular multicore platforms, Texas Multicore Technologies (TMT) today announced that the high performance SequenceL™ functional programming language and auto-parallelizing compiler now fully support ARM® processors running the Linux operating system, including 32 and 64-bit architectures.
"ARM multicore processors are widely used in embedded and mobile devices, with new high core count 64-bit versions now being deployed for servers in data centers and High Performance Computing (HPC) installations," said Doug Norton, Chief Marketing Officer for TMT. "For example, a 64-bit Cavium ThunderX™ server chip has 48 ARM custom cores, delivering 384 cores in a single server, well beyond the ability of most humans to program them for optimal use. But core counts are rapidly increasing across the entire ARM ecosystem, so the same need for easier programmability was there for the 32-bit versions common in embedded and IoT (Internet of Things) devices."
TMT provides computer programming tools and services to modernize software to run on multicore computing platforms with optimal performance and portability. SequenceL is a compact, powerful functional programming language and auto-parallelizing compiler that quickly and easily converts algorithms to robust, massively parallel code. TMT has worked closely with its strategic platform partners ARM, AMD, Intel, Dell, HPE, and IBM to do the hard work of building low-level platform optimizations in its tools so the broad base of software developers, engineers and scientists don't have to.
"Energy efficiency and performance depend greatly on the ability to maximize the use of parallelism in today's multicore systems," said Eric Van Hensbergen, director of HPC, ARM. "The work TMT has done with their SequenceL language and compiler to support multiprocessors based on the ARMv7 and ARMv8-A architectures enables our partners to bring the most demanding scientific and industrial applications to market in cost-effective and efficient designs."
