Adaptive / Evolvable Reconfigurable Computing Systems

Gilles Sassatelli Chair:

Gilles Sassatelli, LIRMM - CNRS / University of Monptellier II, France

Adaptive and evolvable systems have been gaining attention recently in the reconfigurable computing community. Fault-tolerance, self-organization or adaptability are key-concepts in this field, enabling to take advantage of massively parallel processing capabilities in the terascale computing era. To the purpose of building such systems, bioinspiration ...

Element CXI: Exploring Elemental Computing in Academia

Prof. Peter Athanas Presenter/Speaker:
Prof. Peter Athanas, Virginia Tech., USA


The ElementCXI Elemental Computing Array (ECA) is composed of heterogeneous Elements that dynamically form specific computing structures on demand, simultaneously and in parallel, on each clock cycle. In addition, each Element has multiple contexts, ...

Application Experiments: MPPA and FPGA

Philip Top Presenter:

Dr. Philip Top, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, USA

This paper describes the mapping approach, programmability, and performance of the Ambric Massively Parallel Processor Array (MPPA), and compares these aspects to an FPGA. Two application kernels, a trellis decoder, and n-gram frequency counter, were ported to the Ambric ...
