Multicore Quarterly Report November 2012
TOP STORY
Performance-Portable Programming
The OpenCL language and ecosystem could be a lot more portable than it is today. The idea of a static OpenCL runtime coupled with an OpenCL-to-C translator would make OpenCL code theoretically runnable anywhere C and C++ can be compiled for. (more)
The Benefits of Integrated Security in Network Flow Processing
Implementing integrated crypto/IPsec solutions reduces cost relative to multi-chip architectures while increasing overall security of the system. (more)

AMD
AMD is an innovation leader in both x86 processor and graphics processor designs. AMD embedded solutions give designers ample flexibility to design scalable, x86-based, cost-efficient and feature-rich products, and help drive energy conservation into their systems without compromising application performance or compatibility, graphics performance or features.
B Labs
B Labs hypervisor for ARM processors, now adds Cortex-A15 support, featuring full virtualization of Linux kernel binaries. This is exciting for cars and embedded systems, as now it is possible to have a quad core Android OS and baremetal or real-time software, in their own isolated compartment, in a single chipset.
