Lithe Technology announces the successful start of our spring 2014 Engineering internship program. Lithe welcomes engineering student William DeCook to our company. His first project involves porting an image processing algorithm to the OpenCL standard. The goal is to leverage OpenCL to create a multi-core GPU implementation that has improved performance. Initially, Will is starting from a conventional software implementation of the image processing software and adding code to measure performance. This baseline performance will be compared to his OpenCL version that executes on a commercial GPU card produced by AMD™. Next, optimizations of the OpenCL implementation will be explored that minimize the execution time. A follow-up effort will look at moving the OpenCL design to an embedded target for deployment as a real-time application on a mobile platform.
