The article focuses on the launch of a programming style for C code, called CleanC, by IMEC, a nanoelectronics and nanotechnology research center based in Leuven, Belgium. CleanC was introduced with adherence analysis plug-ins freely available through Eclipse. It increases the parallelization and optimization potential for multiprocessor targets. This can distribute applications over multiple processors while taking care of the synchronization of the tasks and the exchange of data between tasks.
