Increasing variety and affordability of multi- and many-core embedded architectures can pose both a challenge and opportunity to developers of high performance computing applications. In this paper we present a case study where we develop and evaluate a unified parallel approach to a signal-correlation algorithm, currently in-use in a commercial/industrial locating system. We utilize both HPX C++ and CUDA runtimes to achieve scalable code for current embedded multi- and many-core architectures (NVIDIA Tegra, Intel Broadwell M, Arm Cortex A-15). We also compare our approach onto traditional high-performance hardware as well as a native embedded many-core variant. To increase the accuracy of our performance analysis we introduce dedicated performance model.
