  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. scmt - SuperK Cluster Management Toolkit Plug-and-play management for single-board computer clusters

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Author : Magnus Åkerstedt Bergsten; Anders Bolin; Eric Borgsten; Elvira Jonsson; Sebastian Lund; Axel Olsson; [2016-10-24]
    Keywords : cluster computing; single-board computer; cluster management; Odroid; ARM;

    Abstract : Computer clusters have become increasingly important in elds such as high-performance computing and database management due to their scalability and lower economic cost compared with traditional supercomputers. However, computer clusters consisting of x86-based servers are expensive, highly power-consuming, and occupy signi cant space. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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.

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. 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
