Mentor Embedded Accelerates High-Performance Signal And Image Processing Application Development With Support For MATLAB And ARM Platforms

Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced the availability of its latest Mentor® Embedded Sourcery™ VSIPL++ product. The Sourcery VSIPL++ product adds support for ARM v7 Cortex A with NEON single instruction, multiple data (SIMD) processing platforms, and an interface to MATLAB® for signal and image processing algorithm conversion. This MATLAB interface allows users to easily convert algorithm models into VSIPL++ compliant C++ code and to verify the correct function of the deployed code on a specific target system.

The Sourcery VSIPL++ product is an open standard, high-level C++ image and signal processing library for high performance computing (HPC) applications. The new product allows users to express algorithms in high-level C++ code, to improve application speed performance and software development productivity for signal and image processing algorithms used in embedded systems while simultaneously ensuring application portability across a wide variety of compute platforms. Key applications for VSIPL++ include radar for military-aerospace, medical diagnostic imaging, and computer vision for industrial control and automotive markets.

Mentor Graphics and the Object Management Group (OMG) have been working closely on advancing the VSIPL++ specification as a global standard for compute-intensive applications targeting embedded systems. Last month, the OMG officially adopted the VSIPL++ specification, marking a smooth and rapid integration of the High Performance Embedded Computing Software Initiative (HPEC-SI) efforts and the OMG Technology Adoption Process. The overall mission of HPEC-SI is software portability to enable “write-once/run-anywhere” capability for high-performance embedded computing applications.

“VSIPL++ is an important step forward for interoperable, portable, reusable applications in the high-performance computing space, the last bastion of non-portable applications,” said Richard Mark Soley, chairman and CEO of the Object Management Group. “There’s no reason developers for HPEC systems should live without the write-once/run-anywhere standards deployed in other markets, and Mentor Graphics Corporation’s leadership role in creating VSIPL++ stands out in support of HPEC developers.”
