After an introduction to reconfigurable NoC from the design perspective, sections cover modeling and design methods for reconfigurable NoC, high level programming of reconfigurable NoC-based systems-on-chip, and a simulation framework for reconfigurable NoC emulation.
According to George, reconfigurable computers make the best of both worlds because they can rearrange their internal circuitry like Lego blocks to create the most appropriate architecture for each assignment, and, thus, can be from 10 to 100 times faster than other computers their size, while using five to 10 times less energy.
DARPA began the reconfigurable computing challenge to achieve a breakthrough in how we do computation to get 10 to 100 times improvement," says Jaime Cummins, president and CEO of QuickSilver Technology.
Lightspeed Logic is a provider of mask reconfigurable intellectual property (IP), a digital logic implementation technology that provides time-to-market, yield, manufacturability, and development expense advantages over standard-cell implementation.
Lightspeed Logic, the leading provider of mask reconfigurable IP, today announced that the company will be participating with an exhibit at CDNLive Silicon Valley 2007 highlighting their Reconfigurable Logic IP.
Ninety-nine papers from August 2007 conference present recent research on adaptive and reconfigurable circuits for multimedia and telecommunications, evolvable hardware, bio-inspired search and optimization algorithms, on-chip learning with analog circuits, fault tolerance, and self-repair.
