The problem of creating efficient mappings of dataflow graphs onto specific architectures (i.e., solving the <i>place and route</i> problem) is incredibly challenging. The difficulty is especially acute in the area of Coarse-Grained Reconfigurable Architectures (CGRAs) to the extent that solving the mapping problem may remove a significant bottleneck to(More)
Coarse grained reconfigurable architectures (CGRAs) are promising due to the ability to highly customize such architectures to an application domain. However, good tools and good algorithms to map benchmarks onto these architectures are needed to support design space exploration for CGRAs. In particular, the mapping problem has been difficult to solve in a(More)
— One of the grand challenges in the design of portable/wearable devices is to achieve optimal efficiency and flexibility in a tiny low power package. Coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures (CGRAs) hold great promise for energy-efficient flexible designs for a domain of applications. CGRAs are very promising due to the ability to highly customize such(More)
Custom domain-specific architectures are very promising for creating designs that are highly optimized to the needs of a particular application domain. However, it is extremely difficult to find optimal tradeoffs in designing a new architecture, or even to fully understand the design space. Therefore, there is a great need to develop an optimum design(More)
—Retaining students poses a huge challenge in the field of engineering, as many students become discouraged while working on their degrees and switch majors or leave school entirely. Our key observation is that it is extremely important to introduce students to real-world problems early on in their studies. Too often, students become confused and(More)
