Tarantula is an aggressive floating point machine targeted at technical, scientific and bioinformatics workloads, originally planned as a follow-on candidate to the EV8 processor [6, 5]. Tarantula adds to the EV8 core a vector unit capable of 32 double-precision flops per cycle. The vector unit fetches data directly from a 16 MByte second level cache with a(More)
Centralized monolithic processor designs, such as single core and shared bus structures, are not scaling, leading to multicore designs becoming the norm [1-3]. Research highlights the benefits of mesh networks connecting these cores. [4,5]. The TILE64™ processor [6] is a multicore SoC targeting the high-performance demands of a wide range of embedded(More)
