The heterogeneous design of multi-core processors, such as the Cell processor, introduced new challenges in porting high-level languages. Our project is developing tools that hide the underlying details of the Cell processor and eases parallel programming. We present a Virtual SIMD machine (VSM) paradigm that can be used to parallelize array expression… CONTINUE READING
