Abstract Multicore technology is everywhere! Multicore processors are increasing the computational power available to high-end calculations in supercomputers and to embedded systems alike. They are being used to reduce database response times and to create high-end medical devices as well as to validate astrophysical theory. Yet to take advantage of the parallelism of such platforms, suitable programming standards are essential. OpenMP is a portable programming interface for shared memory parallel computers; currently being extended to support a wide range of systems and applications. MCA is creating new standards to enable multicore product development. In this talk, we discuss how the MCA standards may facilitate the provision of OpenMP for programmers with significant productivity benefits.
