With energy efficiency and power consumption being the primary impediment in the path to exascale systems, low-power high performance embedded systems are of increasing interest. The Parallella System-on-module (SoM) created by Adapteva combines the Epiphany-IV 64-core coprocessor with a host ARM processor housed in a Zynq System-on-chip. The Epiphany(More)
Augmenting a processor with special hardware that is able to apply a Single Instruction to Multiple Data(SIMD) at the same time is a cost effective way of improving processor performance. It also offers a means of improving the ratio of processor performance to power usage due to reduced and more effective data movement and intrinsically lower instruction(More)
The computational efficiency and energy-to-solution of several applications using the GAMESS quantum chemistry suite of codes is evaluated for 32-bit and 64-bit ARM-based computers, and compared to an x86 machine. The x86 system completes all benchmark computations more quickly than either ARM system and is the best choice to minimize time to solution. The(More)
The existing service modeling methodologies, such as WSDL and OWLS , are service-oriented, which mainly focus on providing formalisms for the important features of a web service, including its functional-ity and QoS parameters. Conforming to these models , users need to first find what the available services are, go through the descriptions, and then shape(More)
Heterogeneous System-on-Chip (SoC) processors are increasingly gaining traction in the High Performance Computing (HPC) community as alternate building blocks for future exascale systems. Key issues relating to their promise of energy efficiency include i) absolute performance, ii) finding an energy-optimal balance in the use of different on-chip devices(More)
