Using Integration Wrappers for Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives

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.
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, exception handling, and objects for complex Intel IPP functions with automatic memory management for specification structures.
In general, Integration Wrappers are designed to improve user experience with threading of Intel IPP functions and tiling.
Integration Wrappers are provided as a separate download. For more information about the main concepts, usage, and implementation details, refer to the
Developer Guide and Reference for Intel IPP Integration Wrappers
document available with the Integration Wrappers package.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
