Neon Intrinsics: Getting Started on Android

5 May 2020CPOL9 min read
In this article, we see how to set up Android Studio for native C++ development, and to utilize Neon intrinsics for Arm-powered mobile devices.
I’m going to show you how to set up your Android development environment to use Neon intrinsics. Then, we’ll implement an Android application that uses the Android Native Development Kit (NDK) to calculate the dot product of two vectors. Finally, we’ll see how to improve the performance of such a function with NEON intrinsics.
