What is OpenCL? Open CL is a framework that exists to help developers communicate with system hardware such as a the CPU, GPU,DSPs and others. OpenCL uses a combination of its own programming language (based off a derivative of C) and APIs to allow system hardware to work together to make a device functional.
OpenCL refers to each hardware component of a system as “compute devices” that report back to a “host”, commonly the CPU. The C-based code developed in OpenCL are called “kernels”. Each kernel can be operating within as many of these compute devices as the developer would like.
The OpenCL API allows for the host CPU to execute and compile each kernel at runtime. This allows for code written in OpenCL to be fairly portable between different systems. While OpenCL has standard implementation of APIs for C and C++, third party APIs are are also available for programming languages such as Java, Python and .NET.
