about the project
Achievements: Design and Programming Models

Evolve methods and tools to facilitate the development (or restructuring) of parallel applications and to make them much more efficient.

The main tasks consist of:

  • Definition and implementation of a multi-level parallel programming and execution model for embedded applications and specification of a respective execution platform
  • Multilevel parallel programming with high-level directives based on OpenMP directives
  • Profiling and restructuring of sequential programs
  • Performance characterisation of multi-core /multithreaded systems through extensive benchmarking
  • Development of an expert system for optimising applications on multi-core /multithreaded systems by performing static and dynamic analysis, e.g. with respect to the efficiency of loop parallelisation, excessive cache coherence traffic, etc.
  • Adaptation of message passing APIs to MPSoC environments, probably as a subset of MPI
  • Tools for the design exploration of efficient interconnecting networks for Multiprocessors on a Chip (MPSoC)
