Modern embedded systems present an ever increasing complexity and model-driven engineering has been shown to be helpful in mitigating it. In our previous works we exploited the power of model-driven engineering to develop a round-trip approach for aiding the evaluation and assessment of extra-functional properties preservation from models to code. In addition, we showed how the round-trip approach could be employed to evaluate different deployment strategies, and the focus was on homogeneous CPUbased platforms. Due to the fact that the assortment of target-platforms in the embedded domain is inevitably shifting to heterogeneous solutions, our goal is to broaden the scope of the round-trip approach towards mixed CPU-GPU configurations. In this work we focus on the modelling of heterogeneous deployment and the enhancement of the current automatic code generator to synthesize code targeting such heterogeneous configurations.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
