Title: Design Technologies for Embedded Multiprocessor Systems-on-Chip
Date: Thursday, April 9, 2015
Location: Harut Barsamian Colloquia Room (Engineering Hall 2430)
Host: Mohammad Al Faruque
The trend towards Multicore and even Manycore architectures affects virtually all areas of computing today. Especially in the mobiles and consumer domains, an extremely high architectural efficiency (MIPS/Watt) is required. In order to manage the complexity of multi-billion transistor IC designs with dozens of heterogeneous processing engines, advanced Electronic System Level (ESL) tools are required. ESL can be roughly subdivided into four categories: architecture modeling and optimization, application SW mapping, simulation and verification, and efficient IP block design. After a general introduction to embedded MPSoC (Multiprocessor Systems-on-Chip) architectures and ESL technologies, this seminar talk will cover selected aspects from the above four domains, in particular ESL power estimation, embedded multicore SW development, fast virtual platforms, and application-specific processor design.
