Combining high productivity and high performance in image processing using Single Assignment C
In this paper the problem of high performance software engineering is addressed in the context of image processing regarding productivity and optimized exploitation of hardware resources. Therefore, we introduce the functional array processing language Single Assignment C (SaC), which relies on a hardware virtualization concept for automated, parallel machine code generation. An illustrative benchmarking example proves both utility and adequacy of SaC for image processing.
