Project: Efficient architectural design of microprocessors
- project duration
- 01-OCT-04 – 30-SEP-08
- Designing microprocessors is a time-consuming process, because of the huge design space and relatively slow simulations. We will try to speed up this process (i) by fast design space exploration methods and (ii) by speeding up the simulations. A few methods exist to do the latter, e.g. sampling and statistical simulation, but they all loose accuracy. We will investigate how they can be used in the optimalisation process, and how they can be adapted to perform better.
