Predictable Mapping of Design on Networked Architecture
2005 - 2009
The objective of this project is to design predictable multi-processor systems. This predictability is in terms of both the architecture and the applications.
New applications for embedded systems demand complex multi-processor designs to meet real-time deadlines while achieving other critical design constraints like low power consumption and low area. With high consumer demand the time-to-market has become significantly lower. Multi-Processor Systems-on-Chips (MPSoCs) have been proposed as a promising solution for all these previous problems.Further, these systems are becoming increasingly heterogeneous with the use of dedicated IP blocks and application domain specific processors. To achieve high performance in such systems, the limited computational resources must be shared. The concurrent execution of dynamic applications on shared resources is a potential source of interference. Modeling and analyzing this interference is a key to building cost-effective systems which can deliver the desired performance of the applications. A number of issues remain to be solved for such systems to be useful.
