34 vendors and research organizations are now collaborating to develop OpenMP standard parallel programming model

BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#Embedded--The OpenMP Architecture Review Board (ARB) today announced that Samsung has joined the board. The OpenMP ARB is a group of leading hardware vendors, software vendors, and research organizations that are creating the standard for the most popular shared-memory parallel programming model in use today.

Samsung Electronics is a world-leading semiconductor manufacturer with a wide range of products that power the tools you use every day – including smartphones, electric vehicles, hyperscale data centers, IoT devices, and more. With a strong focus on innovation, Samsung designs and manufactures memory, system LSI, foundry, and LED solutions. Set to open in 2024, Samsung recently broke ground on a state-of-the-art Foundry in Taylor, Texas that will power next-generation technologies in areas like 5G, artificial intelligence (AI), and high-performance computing (HPC).
