    Uwe Dolinsky

    Chief Scientist

    With Codeplay since the early beginnings. I'm in charge of building and maintaining the company's unique core IP which enables customers to benefit from our long experience delivering tools targeting a wide range of very specialized low-energy heterogeneous processors. Some of this work is patented and concentrates on new non-standard technologies to enable the efficient implementation of standards such as C++ and SYCL in Codeplay's products. This includes solving portability and performance issues currently not addressed in mainstream compilers. I lead or was involved in many different projects at Codeplay ranging from research to delivering and supporting production tools for various processors e.g. PhysX and several other VLIW platforms. Some of the current technical focusses are on: Enhancing Codeplay's compiler technology and integrating parts of it into ComputeCPP (Codeplay's SYCL implementation). Delivering and integrating highly optimising compilers for low-energy platforms. Static analysis and advanced diagnostics especially targeting problems occurring on specialized heterogeneous platforms. Building conformance/performance evaluation systems to enable regression testing for rapid and continuous delivery.

    Alistair Low

    VP Engineering

    I oversee the development of all engineering projects within the company. Before taking on my current role, I worked on many diverse projects, including creating our in-house testing system, Testplay, helping with development of the car damage engine in NASCAR The Game on Playstation®3 and Xbox 360, and working on various compiler and heterogeneous computing projects for major technology companies. The most fulfilling part of my role at Codeplay has been mentoring our new staff and helping them become part of our family. I'm proud to have been a part of the development of our company over the past decade, developing our expertise in very complex technology without losing our culture of being innovative, agile, and most of all, friendly. I'm excited by the possibilities of automation to help us create, build, test, deliver, and manage our software, and strive to constantly increase our development processes' quality and efficiency. I also strive to improve my five-a-side football performance, however this is proving to be rather less successful! In my spare time, I love going to concerts, running and climbing.

    Andrew Richards

    CEO

    I started Codeplay with my co-founder, Uwe, to enable as many programmers as possible to accelerate their software and reduce power consumption on parallel processors. Together, we have built up the company to be a world-leading team of engineers for high-performance, low-power systems. I also chair a few standards groups so that the whole industry benefits from collaboration and our innovations. As a video-game developer, before starting Codeplay, I produced some of the earliest physics engines in videogames. The whole industry now accepts what we pioneered: moving software onto highly parallel graphics processors saves power and increases performance. I am very proud of the team we have built up here at Codeplay, who take on some really tough technology challenges in a friendly, helpful and professional way. I can often be seen playing football with my highly-intelligent border collie.
