De1Soc Mutlithreading

Hi,  

 

My question is, does De1soc capable of mutlithreading? I know it has Arm Cortex9 with 2 core. Does it support OpenMP?  

The reason is, i have this task and it is taking longer than i expected.  

 

void transpose(int h, int w, float *x){ int i, j; float *temp = (float *) calloc(h*w, sizeof(float)); (float *)memcpy(temp,x,h*w*sizeof(float)); # pragma omp parallel for for ( i = 0; i < h ; ++i){ for( j = 0 ; j < w ; ++j){ x = temp; } } free(temp); } 

 

I tried compile with the -fopenmp flag and ran on de1soc. Results were the same.

Cortex-A9 is an ARMv7 architecture. According to the ARM web site, architectures earlier than ARMv8 are not 

supported by the ARM compiler for HPC:

Thanks Austin, so i assume there is no other way to mutlithread except pthreading?

I don't know, I have not investigated using multithreading on the Terasic platforms.
