The Scalp project aims at the creation of an efficient and effective programming methodology for the next generation high performance architectures in Consumer Electronic products. The Scalp programming model is based on SP (series-parallel) graphs, which offer significant advantages with regard to the ease of programming, portability, and performance predictability. In the project it will be explored whether SP design patterns can be defined for a relevant set of current and future CE-applications. These SP design patterns will be embedded in an SP programming environment that also provides accurate, low cost estimations on the performance of the design patterns.
