The Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Foundation led by Advanced Micro Devices, as revealed that seven new companies had joined the consortium. The two new noteworthy partners of HSA are Samsung Electronics, a designer of mobile microprocessors and Vivante, a designer of ultra-mobile graphics adapters.

The full list of new members includes Apical, Arteris, MulticoreWare, Samsung, Sonics, Symbio and Vivante Corp. Each company is adding expertise to the HSA ecosystem by assisting with research, development, production, manufacture, use, and the sale of HSA IP and heterogeneous computing software. These new members range from Supporter, Contributor and Associate-level members. Working closely with the founding members, the new members will contribute to the growing adoption of heterogeneous computing.

With Samsung onboard, the HSA is now supported by the majority of companies involved into creation of technologies for mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets and other, including ARM, Imagination Technologies, Mediatek, Texas Instruments and Samsung. There are three more important companies who are not in the HSA: Intel Corp., Nvidia Corp. and Qualcomm.

“As the word gets out about the HSA Foundation, we’re experiencing a groundswell of support from a wide range of companies that are interested in power-efficiency and heterogeneous computing. HSA will enable the next era of computing from mobile and embedded to HPC and cloud computing, but it requires having a full value chain in place from silicon to IP to ISVs,” said Greg Stoner, vice president and managing director of the HSA Foundation.
