Journal accepted at Elsevier Journal of Microprocessors and Microsystems 2015

Congrats to Hamed Tabkhi on his accepted journal [1]  in the Elsevier Journal of Microprocessors and Microsystems . This article proposes Conceptual Abstraction Levels (CALs) which addresses early design decisions separately and iteratively at higher levels of abstraction enabling an efficient solution space exploration. The journal is related to the project "System-Level Design Principles for Market-oriented SoC". Read more about this project here.

PhD dissertation award at 2015 DAC PhD forum

Congrats to Hamed Tabkhi on his best dissertation poster presentation [1] at DAC 2015 PhD forum. The poster is  titled with "High-Performance Power-Efficient Solutions for Embedded Vision Computing" summerizing his dissertation [2] whcih is found here.

ESL members at DAC 2015

During Jun 7th - 11th, Prof. Schirner, Nasibeh Teimouri and Hamed Tabkhi attended DAC 2015 in San Francisco to present [1]  which is about scalability issue of current ACC-based CMP. 

Paper accepted at ASAP 2015

Congrats to Hamed Tabkhi, Majid Sabbagh and Professor Schirner on their accepted paper, An Efficient Architecture Solution for Low-Power Real-Time Background Subtraction [1] in ASAP2015.

PhD dissertation accepted at 2015 DAC PhD Forum

Congrats to Hamed on his accepted dissertation titled with "High-performance power-efficient solutions for embedded vision computing" at 2015 DAC PhD Forum

Paper accepted at HEART 2015

Congrats to NUCAR members Amir Momeni,Yash Ukidave and Professor Kaeli and ESL members Hamed and Professor Schirner on their accepeted paper, Exploring the Efficiency of the OpenCL Pipe Semantic on an FPGA [1] in HEART2015.

Journal accepted at Springer DAEM 2015

Congrats to Jiaxing Zhang on his accepted journal [1]  in the Springer Design Automation for Embedded Systems (DAEM) . This article proposes to join ALD and SLD to close the specification gap through a Specification Synthesis approach. We introduce Algo2Spec, which synthesizes an SLDL specification out of an algorithm model in Simulink. 

The journal is related to the project "Integrating Algorithm Development and System-level Design". Read more about this project here.

Paper accepted at DAC 2015

The paper titled with "Revisiting Accelerator-Based CMPs: Challenges and Solutions" [1]  written by Nasibeh, Hamed and Professor Schirner has been accepted in the Design Automation Conference (DAC).

This article investigates how current Accelerator based CMP architectures face scalability issues and impose heavy bottlenecks on the system resources leading to accelerator underutilization. This work proposes an autonomous accelerator-based architecture mo influential in the area of streaming applications to utilize accelerator more than 90%.  Read more about this project here.

Journal accepted at ACM TACO 2015

Congrats to Hamed on his accepted journal [1]  in the ACM Transactions on Architecture and Code Optimization (ACM TACO) . This article investigates how underutilized registers in an embedded processor can be put to good use for improving the reliability of frequently used registers. The work is an interplay at many abstraction levels: binary analysis and instrumentation, ISA extension and a micro architecture extension.


The journal is related to the project "Cross Layer Optimizations for Processors with Large Register Files". Read more about this project here.

Professor Schirner's talk at ASPDAC 2015

Next week, Jan 19th - 24th, Prof. Schirner is away to attend ASPDAC in Chiba/Tokyo, Japan. He will present [1]  which is about Embedded Softwares. More about this work can be found here.
