Many-Core Levels (MCL) is a framework that allows one to write computational kernels for different kinds of many-core hardware. It consists of two languages: a hardware description language HDL and a programming language MCPL. HDL allows one to define hardware with different levels of detail, which results in different abstraction levels. MCL defines a hierarchy of hardware descriptions, starting with hardware description perfect. Each lower-level hardware description defines many-core hardware in more detail. MCPL allows one to write computational kernels that are mapped to hardware by specifying which hardware description is targeted and by using constructs that define a mapping between algorithm and hardware.
