About Tim Lewis

I'm a freelance marketing consultant with a strong background in delivering successful market development programs within the B2B technology sector. I'm experienced in a wide range of marketing disciplines and combine a pragmatic approach to problem solving and strategic thinking with a proactive hands-on attitude. I have a sales and business development experience and a strong empathy with engineering-led high tech companies. I worked for 3DLABS for 19 years where I was the Marketing Director and before that worked in the areas of AI and Expert Systems. During my time at 3DLABS I worked on a number of Khronos related activities, most notably with OpenGL and more recently with OpenCL. In 2013-2014 I helped Khronos on a number of projects, including Supercomputing and Siggraph and I'm the local organiser for IWOCL. Please email me at tim.lewis@croftedge.com if you would like to discuss you marketing requirements.

OpenCL at Embedded World 2015

Codeplay demo first prototype SYCL Implementation

In March this year the Khronos Group released the SYCL 1.2 provisional specification for industry feedback and only six months later Codeplay were demonstrating their prototype implementation of SYCL at the recent Multicore Challenge conference in the UK. SYCL 1.2 is an abstraction layer built upon OpenCL 1.2 that developers can use create applications and frameworks that leverage the power of OpenCL but with the ease-of-use and flexibility of C++. As Andrew Richards, CEO at Codeplay and the Khronos SYCL Working Group chair stated in […]

High-Level Programming Framework for Executing Streaming Applications on Heterogeneous OpenCL Platforms

Abstract: As the computer industry is reaching more and more limits regarding processor speed and transistor size, they have to come up with complex new architectures and more efficient use of the available processing power. For application developers this can be a difficult task, because they have to be aware of low-level hardware properties and there are many pitfalls to circumvent. The Distributed Application Layer (DAL) framework developed at the Computer Engineering Lab provides application designers with a tool to simplify their work-flow and still providing a high level of flexibility and more importantly: parallelism. Running an application on multiple processing units in parallel without synchronization issues, is one of the key features of the DAL framework. […]

Intel Publish OpenCL API Debugger Tutorial

OpenCL API Debugger is a Microsoft Visual Studio plug-in that enables debugging of OpenCL applications. API Debugger is a new feature of the Compute Code Builder found in Intel’s Integrated Native Developer Experience (INDE) and the Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications 2014 Beta. The API Debugger lets developers view the list of all OpenCL API calls that their applications call with an ability to view information about the function parameters, return values, and execution times. […]
