Overview

GPU Ocelot is an open-source dynamic JIT compilation framework for GPU compute applications targeting a range of GPU and non-GPU execution targets. Ocelot supports CUDA applications and provides an implementation of the CUDA Runtime API enabling seamless integration with existing CUDA applications. Its JIT compiler supports four backend execution targets – (1) an emulator that implements NVIDIAs Parallel Thread Execution (PTX) instruction set architecture, (2) NVIDIA, (3) AMD GPUs, and (4) a translator to LLVM for efficient execution of GPU kernels on multicore CPUs. An event trace analyzer is used with the emulator to generate instruction traces for driving microarchitecture timing simulators.
