Caps Entreprise is due to launch its new DevDeck software, a multi-level tool suite for manycore applications definition, porting and optimisation, in September 2011. The package aims to guide users through the entire applications development lifecycle with its GPU-focused porting methodology and product ecosystem that includes programming, debugging, profiling tools and scientific libraries. DevDeck is user-specific with DevDeck Developer for developers, DevDeck Enterprise for computing centres, and DevDeck OEM for use by integrators. The Developer package will be completed with the Allinea Debugger DDT 3.0 that fully supports HMPP and enables users to debug Nvidia GPU applications at a high level.
