Binary Code Generation for Multimedia Application on Embedded Platforms

  • Henri-Pierre Charles. Binary Code Generation for Multimedia Application on Embedded Platforms. Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems (ACIVS 2015), 2015.
    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    Multimedia applications such as video compression, image processing, face recognition, run now on embedded platforms. The huge computing power needed is provided by the evolution of the transistor density and by using specialized accelerators. Theses accelerators are supported by multimedia instructions set. Using theses complex instructions can be a nightmare for the engineer because there is many way to program it, quality of the compiler support can be random depending on the couple compiler/platform and worse, performances can be data dependent. Using libraries can be an option if such library exist and provide enough performances. In this talk I’ll illustrate the difficulty to generate binary code for this application domain by practical example of code generation. Then I’ll show a tool deGoal which is developed in house to resolve these problems.
