Real-time operating system and hypervisor PikeOS 5 supports OpenMP

Real-Time Operating System Hypervisor PikeOS 5 supports OpenMP

OpenMP is a specification of an application programming interface (API) for parallel programming. It is the most widely used standard for symmetric multi-processing systems whichallows developers to describe the parallelization of code sections by means of compiler directives. OpenMP also enables to efficiently manage the execution between the host and multiple acceleration devices by defining …
