The Whole World Is Watching: ORNL’s Bernholdt & Programming Environment Team Prepare for Frontier and Exascale

The world’s fastest supercomputer comes with some assembly required. Frontier, the nation’s first exascale computing system, won’t come together as a whole until all pieces arrive at the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory to be installed—with the eyes of the world watching—on the data center floor inside the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF). Once those components operate in harmony as advertised, David Bernholdt and his team can take time for a quick bow—and then get back to work.

LLVM Holds the Keys to Exascale Supercomputing

The recent proliferation of new hardware technologies has galvanized the high-performance computing (HPC) community and created the ability to deliver the nation’s forthcoming exascale-capable supercomputers and data centers. It has also made LLVM-based compiler technology the default gatekeeper to these new systems. LLVM, an open-source collection of compiler and toolchain technologies, serves as a test bed for proposed parallelization extensions (e.g., the interoperability directive in OpenMP 5.1) and as a vehicle to provide production-quality parallel compiler implementations. Johannes Doerfert, a researcher at Argonne National Laboratory, notes that “LLVM is a vehicle to provide performant implementations of OpenMP….

Xilinx Acquires Programming Tools Vendor Silexica

SAN JOSE, June 10, 2021 – Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), the adaptive computing company, today announced that it has acquired Silexica, a privately-held provider of C/C++ programming and analysis tools. Silexica’s SLX FPGA tool suite empowers developers with an unparalleled development experience building applications on FPGAs and Adaptive SoCs. This technology will become integrated with […]

ECP Pushes Cross-Platform Tested Compilers for HPC and Exascale Architectures

The Exascale Computing Project (ECP) is working to combine two key technologies, LLVM and continuous integration (CI), to ensure that current and future compilers are stable and performant on high-performance computing (HPC) and exascale computer systems. The proliferation of new machine architectures has made the continuous testing and verification of software (hence the “continuous” in CI) an essential part of US Department of Energy DOE supercomputing. Valentin Clement, a software engineer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory who is part of the team working to include LLVM in the ECP CI testing and verification framework, notes, “We are working to add CI for ECP-relevant architectures. This facilitates….

SiPearl Says Rhea Exascale Chip Has Entered Accelerated Simulation Phase for 2022 Launch

SiPearl, the company designing the Rhea microprocessor for the European exascale supercomputer, announced it has passed a milestone before the chip’s scheduled 2022 launch. The company said it is moving into an “accelerated simulation phase” on the Veloce Strato hardware emulator from Siemens Digital Industries Software.
