BEIJING, Aug. 18, 2016 - Huaxia (Beijing) General Processor Technologies, Inc. is co-sponsoring the Heterogeneous System Architecture Global Summit with the China Semiconductor Industry Association and the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone (Yizhuang - E Town). With Hua Xia GPT's efforts, the HSA Summit has received strong support from authorities and guiding departments for the Internet and information communication industries. Mr. Sheng Liang, Beijing E-Town's director of the administrative committee, will chair the Summit. Nearly 100 processor companies and related downstream applications hardware and software companies with significant influence will attend the Summit, and research institutes and application companies will also participate with around 300 participants in total.
Huaxia (Beijing) General Processor Technologies, Inc. is a leading supplier of heterogeneous processor IP core technology. Huaxia GPT provides next generation CPU + DSP + IVP "Unity" general processors and domain-specific processor IP core products, IP customization and SoC integration design services, covering multiple applications in Mobile Communications, Machine Vision, Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent Terminals, Consumer Electronics and Internet-of-Things, etc.
Huaxia General Processor Technologies is committed to driving rapid construction of a global ecosystem for next generation high-performance heterogeneous computing with other HSA Foundation members. In addition to the ongoing tool chain open source project (GCC BRIG), Huaxia GPT also sponsors Deep Learning and Neural Networks open source projects (ML-HSA) that provide applications and libraries conforming to HSA standards.
The Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone (Yizhuang - E Town) has become the leading integrated circuit innovation zone with a complete industrial chain from design, manufacturing, packaging and testing, to equipment, parts and materials. E-town built China's first 12-inch IC production line and is a world leading high-end chip design R&D and manufacturing center with construction to be completed by 2025.
General Processor Technologies (GPT) is the US division of Huaxia General Processor Technologies Inc. GPT designs and licenses embedded HSA-compatible processors for use world-wide. Best known for building multithreaded vector Digital Signal Processors (DSP) for wireless communications, GPT also licenses cores for use in machine vision, Internet of Things (IoT), Machine-to-Machine (M2M), consumer electronics, and deep learning. GPT's patent-pending Unity architecture allows customers to optimize cores for a range of applications and easily integrates into heterogeneous systems providing power-efficient computing and software reuse.
About the HSA Foundation
The HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) Foundation is a non-profit consortium of SoC IP vendors, OEMs, Academia, SoC vendors, OSVs and ISVs, whose goal is making programming for parallel computing easy and pervasive. HSA members are building a heterogeneous computing ecosystem, rooted in industry standards, which combines scalar processing on the CPU with parallel processing on the GPU, while enabling high bandwidth access to memory and high application performance with low power consumption. HSA defines interfaces for parallel computation using CPU, GPU and other programmable and fixed function devices, while supporting a diverse set of high-level programming languages, and creating the foundation for next-generation, general-purpose computing.
