Heterogeneous MPSoC architectures can provide higher performance and flexibility with less power consumption and lower cost than homogeneous ones. However, as processor instruction sets of general heterogeneous MPSoCs are not identical, tasks migration between two heterogeneous processors is not possible. To enable this function, we propose to build one… (More)
The computation and storage requirements for Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) are usually high. This issue limit their deployability on ubiquitous computing devices such as smart phones or wearables. In this paper, we propose ternary neural networks (TNNs) in order to make deep learning more resource-efficient. We train these TNNs using a teacher-student… (More)
The Fsprit/OMI-COSY project defines transaction-levels to set-up the exchange of IP's in separating function from architecture and body-behavior from proprietary interfaces. These transaction-levels are supported by the “COSY COMMUNICATION IPs” that are presented in this paper. They implement onto Systems-On-Chip the extended Kahn Process… (More)
For the design of classic computers the Parallel programming concept is used to abstract HW/SW interfaces during high level specification of application software. The software is then adapted to an existing multiprocessor platforms using a low level software layers that implement the programming model. Unlike classic computers, the design of heterogeneous… (More)
In this demonstration we present an enhanced version of the usual Spidergon STNoC design flow. In addition, we show the automatic generation of a simulation platform that can be used to perform early architecture exploration.
This paper relates our experience in designing from scratch a multi-threaded kernel for a MIPS R3000 on-chip multiprocessor. We briefly present the target architecture build around a VCI compliant interconnect, and the CPU characteristics. Then we focus on the implementation of part of the POSIX 1003.1b and 1003.1c standards. We conclude this case study by… (More)
