  1. 1. Efficient Memory Access and Synchronization in NoC-based Many-core Processors

    Author : Xiaowen Chen; Zhonghai Lu; Umit Ogras; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Many-core; Network-on-Chip; Distributed Shared Memory; Microcode; Virtual-to-physical Address Translation; Memory Access Fairness; Barrier Synchronization; Cooperative Communication; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : In NoC-based many-core processors, memory subsystem and synchronization mechanism are always the two important design aspects, since mining parallelism and pursuing higher performance require not only optimized memory management but also efficient synchronization mechanism. Therefore, we are motivated to research on efficient memory access and synchronization in three topics, namely, efficient on-chip memory organization, fair shared memory access, and efficient many-core synchronization.
