Kernel Development Framework

Kernel Development Framework is native integrated development environment in the Microsoft Visual Studio* IDE that enables you to build and analyze OpenCL™ kernels.

The framework supports Intel® Architecture processors and Intel® Processor Graphics. The tool provides full offline OpenCL language compilation, which includes:

  • OpenCL syntax checker

  • Cross-platform compilation

  • Low Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) viewer

  • Assembly code viewer

  • Intermediate program binary generator

  • The feature also provides a way to assign input to the kernel, test the correctness, and analyze kernel performance based on group size, build options, and target device.
