Title: Modern Processors for Embedded Applications
Prof. Kolin Paul, IIT Bombay and IIT Delhi
Date & Time: August 20, 2013 15:30
Venue: Room # SIC 301, 03rd Floor, C Block, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Kanwal Rekhi Building
The massive usage of handheld devices has made embedded systems and applications ubiquitous in our everyday existence. However, these devices are not the only ones to take advantage of the increasing transistor densities which has made it possible to build very powerful processors. Automobiles to telecom base stations use a myriad of processors to deliver performance. Most of these embedded systems use variants of the ARM or the Intel processors. In this talk, we will give a brief overview of the Cortex and Atom architectures highlighting aspects which make them suitable for developing embedded applications. Issues relating to heterogeneous cores as well as Compiler and Operating Systems opportunities for building high performance applications riding on these compute engines will be introduced. We will point to some recent work on using “Reconfigurable MultCores” to illustrate how processors could potentially morph at runtime to take advantage of application characteristics to meet performance metrics.
