Strong Partnership with the Khronos Group

LunarG has and maintains a strong partnership with the Khronos Group, a technology consortium that works to develop advanced, royalty-free, acceleration standards for 3D graphics. This partnership enables us to continually develop Khronos-related solutions and also represent our clients’ needs to the Khronos community. LunarG is an active participant in open source working groups for open standards ecosystems such as Vulkan, SPIR-V, OpenGL and OpenXR. This enables us to stay up to date on all the latest open source standards so we can deliver the best solutions and services to our clients.

Khronos Group Award

In 2017, The Khronos Group, a non-profit technology consortium, presented LunarG’s CEO and Director of Engineering, Karen Ghavam, with a Khronie award for her (and the LunarG team’s) contributions to Vulkan. These contributions included the first SDK and validation layers.
