As the computer industry moves toward multi-core, many-core and Graphical Processing Unit (GPU)-based architectures, traditional serial software can no longer make optimal use of a computer"s processing power. Instead, applications now need to be parallelized to take full advantage of modern multi-core CPUs and accelerators such as GPUs. However, developing parallel applications is not an easy task and most developers are not trained for it. To exacerbate the problem, there exist many parallel programming models. It is not easy to port parallel programs written for one architecture/programming model to other combinations. To address these challenges, Tech-X Corporation will develop the Model-based Parallel Application Development Environment (MPADE). By providing a higher level of abstraction, developers can easily develop parallel applications at the logical level. Models for target platforms (hardware architecture, parallel libraries/languages, etc.) enable MPADE tools to synthesize optimized codes for these targets. As a result, developers can easily retarget parallel applications developed with MPADE tools
