Mobica and Khronos collaborate to develop Vulkan SC 1.0 Specification

API will allow for state-of-the-art GPU acceleration deployment in safety critical markets.
London, England; 28th March 2022 - Global software services company Mobica has partnered with The Khronos® Group, an open consortium creating advanced interoperability standards, to develop the Vulkan® Safety Critical (SC) 1.0 Specification.

The new royalty-free API, which is based on the existing Vulkan graphics and compute API specification, will enable safety critical industries to benefit from advanced GPU graphics and compute acceleration – while still meeting the highest levels of safety requirements.

There has been significant growth recently in demand for advanced GPU-accelerated graphics and compute in a wide range of industries where safety is critical, including automotive, autonomy, avionics, medical, industrial, and energy. The Vulkan SC 1.0 Specification will now allow these industries to deploy and scale advanced GPU graphics and compute, while also streamlining their safety certification process.

“Vulkan SC brings explicit design and detailed control of device scheduling, synchronisation, and resource management, making it the ideal API for developing the next generation of safety critical graphics and compute applications targeting modern GPUs.”

Steve Viggers, Vulkan Safety Critical Working Group Chair

Mobica is delighted to have played a key role in the development of the Vulkan® Safety Critical (SC) 1.0 Specification and its conformance testing capabilities. We are excited to see how this royalty-free API, and the advanced GPU graphics now available, will benefit safety critical industries”

Sam Kingston, CEO of Mobica
