Advanced Tools and Techniques for Re-configurable Processor Architectures

Rohit Kumar

Abstract

There have been tremendous advancements in the processor architectures and tools used to manufacture and reconfigure them. The problem of utilization wall, dark silicon, hardware reconfiguration with code change has been the inspiring factors for advancement in this field. All of these have been major factors now a days for all type of microprocessor based electronic projects and products which requires extensive and real time and mobile computational power. Beside this efforts have been made to reduce the communication overhead in major sections of code by designing specialized hardware and to reduce the fetch decode cycle by large extent. It has been proved in recent researches that reducing these two types of communication delays and by tackling the problem of dark silicon will improve power efficiency by 7x to 1000x.
