We overview a library generation framework called Spiral. For the domain of linear transforms, Spiral automatically generates implementations for parallel platforms including SIMD vector extensions, multicore processors, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and FPGA accelerated processors. The performance of the generated code is competitive with the best available hand-written libraries.
