  1. 1. An Evaluation of Decoupled Access Execute on ARMv8

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för informationsteknologi

    Author : Georgios Petrousis; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Energy saving techniques on the hardware level are not always capable of adapting to the applications. Thus energy saving techniques at software level are needed to overcome the limitations of the hardware. Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling (DVFS)is one of the most widely used techniques to scale down the voltage and frequency atruntime as needed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Generic Hardware Description for Embedded Platforms

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för informations- och kommunikationsteknik (ICT)

    Author : Clément Parisot; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : On the area of microcontrollers, a firmware is traditionally built for a very specific hardware configuration. Without special design, there is little chance that the same firmware will run on several hardware platforms with a different sets of peripherals.But running the same firmware on different hardware configurations could have some benefits.

  3. 3. Compositional Decompilation using LLVM IR

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för informationsteknologi

    Author : Robin Eklind; [2015]
    Keywords : binary analysis; composition; compositional; control flow analysis; decompilation; decompiler; golang; intermediate representation; LLVM IR; post-processing;

    Abstract : Decompilation or reverse compilation is the process of translating low-level machine-readable code into high-level human-readable code. The problem is non-trivial due to the amount of information lost during compilation, but it can be divided into several smaller problems which may be solved independently. READ MORE

  4. 4. Efficient LU Factorization for Texas Instruments Keystone Architecture Digital Signal Processors

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för datavetenskap och kommunikation (CSC)

    Author : Gilbert Netzer; [2015]
    Keywords : LU factorization; digital signal processors; Texas Instruments; Keystone architecture; high-performance LINPACK; benchmark; performance; energy efficiency; software-pipelined loops; direct memory access; optimization;

    Abstract : The energy consumption of large-scale high-performance computer (HPC) systems has become one of the foremost concerns of both data-center operators and computer manufacturers. This has renewed interest in alternative computer architectures that could offer substantially better energy-efficiency. READ MORE

  5. 5. Generation of dynamic control-dependence graphs for binary programs

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Linköpings universitet/Databas och informationsteknikTekniska högskolan

    Author : Jakob Pogulis; [2014]
    Keywords : control-dependencies; control-dependence graph; intel-pin; instrumentation; dynamic analysis; program analysis; dependence graph; dynamic dependence graph; control dependency; control flow analysis; control flow;

    Abstract : Dynamic analysis of binary files is an area of computer science that has many purposes. It is useful when it comes to debugging software in a development environment and the developer needs to know which statements affected the value of a specific variable. READ MORE
