AMD Samsung joins HSA Foundation as Founder Member

The HSA Foundation offers many levels of membership, tiered to allow companies of different sizes and scope to join at a level that suits their level of participation best. In addition to today's announcement of six new members, the HSA Foundation has one big new one - Samsung as a Founder Member.

Sasa Marinkovic, Senior Manager of Technology Marketing at AMD, has a blog discussing the new Founder Member of the HSA Foundation, Samsung:

A little more than two months ago, some of the biggest names in the technology industry came together at AFDS to create the HSA Foundation. The goal: deliver new user experiences through advances in computing architectures to enable improvements on power efficiency, performance, programmability, and broad portability across computing devices. To enable these new user experiences, it is essential that software be supported across a broad spectrum of devices… developers cannot sustain today’s trend of re-writing code for an ever expanding number of different platforms.

While the alignment of the founders was a giant step leap to achieving that goal, today’s announcement that a myriad of companies from ISV to OEM have joined the Foundation is just as momentous, and sets the stage for broad adoption across a number of architectures, platforms, and also millions of electronic devices. In addition to Samsung joining AMD, ARM, Imagination Technologies, MediaTek and Texas Instruments as a founder member of the HSA Foundation, six additional companies have pledged their support to HSA and joined as supporter, contributor and associate members, including: Apical, Arteris, MulticoreWare, Sonics, Symbio and Vivante.

“A rising tide lifts all boats” is one of my favorite aphorisms. You’ll often hear me reference it when discussing a number of open source topics from OpenCL™ to Java and now HSA. It’s symbolic to the HSA Foundation’s open industry standards approach of providing a development path beyond the realm of any single hardware vendor so software developers need only “write once” and their code will “run everywhere.” To achieve this vision, the HSA Foundation is open to like-minded professionals across the computing industry – IHVs, OEMs/ODMs, OSVs, language and tools vendors, library and middleware vendors, and application vendors – who want to help realize the next era in computer system architecture and innovation.
