Architectural exploration and scheduling methods for coarse grained reconfigurable arrays

Ansaloni, Giovanni ; Pozzi, Laura (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2011 ; 2011INFO006.

Coarse Grained Reconfigurable Arrays have emerged, in recent years, as promising candidates to realize efficient reconfigurable platforms. CGRAs feature high computational density, flexible routing interconnect and rapid reconfiguration, characteristics that make them well-suited to speed up execution of computational kernels. A number of designs embodying the CGRA concept have been proposed...

Compilation and design automation for extensible embedded processors

Bonzini, Paolo ; Pozzi, Laura (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2009 ; 2009INFO004.

During the last few years, the attention to system-on-chip processors focused on customizability and specializing functional units for particular applications. Such processor extensions can increase performance in domains such as cryptography and DSP, without incurring the power cost of superscalar RISC processors and the complexity of entirely customized integrated circuits. Since it is...
