The EPEEC project is developing a set of tools supporting programming productivity for parallel and heterogeneous systems. In this context, compilers play a central role to understand the source code of applications, optimize it, and transform is appropriately to achieve high performance on systems with GPUs and FPGAs. EPEEC partner Appentra has developed Parallelware Analyzer, a compilation system based on identifying code patterns in the source to introduce parallelization and the use of heterogeneous accelerators, including tools to help insert OpenACC directives.
