Introducing Integration Wrappers for Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives

This document describes basic functions for how to use Integration Wrappers for Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives. This function has been replaced by new Threading Layer functions for imaging processing for a simpler solution. To learn more about Threading Layer, see Threading Layer Functions in the Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives Developer Guide and Reference.

Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) Integration Wrappers aggregate Intel IPP functionality in easy-to-use functions and help to reduce effort required to integrate Intel IPP into your code. The wrappers are designed to improve user experience with threading of Intel IPP functions and tiling.

Integration Wrappers consist of C and C++ interfaces:

  • C interface aggregates Intel IPP functions of similar functionality with various data types and channels into one function. Initialization steps required by several Intel IPP functions are implemented in one initialization function for each functionality. To reduce the size of your code and save time required for integration, the wrappers handle all memory management and Intel IPP function selection routines.
  • C++ interface wraps around the C interface to provide default parameters, easily initialized objects as parameters, exceptions handling, and objects for complex Intel IPP functions with automatic memory management for specification structures.

Integration Wrappers simplify usage of Intel IPP functions and address some of the advanced use cases of Intel IPP.
