—This paper addresses the problem of dynamic thread mapping in heterogeneous many-core systems via an efficient algorithm that maximizes performance under power constraints. Heterogeneous many-core systems are composed of multiple core types with different power-performance characteristics. As well documented in the literature, the generic mapping problem(More)
In recent years, multiple Voltage Frequency Island (VFI)-based designs have increasingly made their way into both commercial and research multicore platforms. On the other hand, the wireless Network-on-Chip (WiNoC) architecture has emerged as an energy-efficient and high bandwidth communication backbone for massively integrated multicore platforms. It(More)
—Multiple Voltage Frequency Island (VFI)-based designs can reduce the energy dissipation in multicore chips. Indeed, by tailoring the voltages and frequencies of each VFI domain, we can achieve significant energy savings subject to specific performance constraints. The achievable performance of VFI-based multicore platforms depends on the overall(More)
In an era when power constraints and data movement are proving to be significant barriers for high-end computing, multicore architectures offer a low-power and highly scalable platform suitable for both data- and compute-intensive applications. MapReduce is a popular framework to facilitate the management and development of big-data workloads. In this work,(More)
—Dynamically adaptive multi-core architectures have been proposed as an effective solution to optimize performance for peak power constrained processors. In processors, the micro-architectural parameters or voltage/frequency of each core to be changed at run-time, thus providing a range of power/performance operating points for each core. In this paper, we(More)
