The ever increasing complexity and heterogeneity of modern System-on-Chip (SoC) architectures make an early and systematic exploration of alternative solutions mandatory. Efficient performance evaluation methods are of highest importance for a broad search in the solution space. In this paper we present an approach that captures the SoC functionality for(More)
—This paper introduces a scalable hardware and software platform applicable for demonstrating the benefits of the invasive computing paradigm. The hardware architecture consists of a heterogeneous, tile-based manycore structure while the software architecture comprises a multi-agent management layer underpinned by distributed runtime and OS services. The(More)
In this paper, we present a new architectural concept for network processors called FlexPath NP. The central idea behind FlexPath NP is to systematically map network processor (NP) application sub-functions onto both SW programmable processor (CPU) resources and (re-)configurable HW building blocks, such that different packet flows are forwarded via(More)
Manycore System-on-Chip include an increasing amount of processing elements and have become an important research topic for improvements of both hardware and software. While research can be conducted using system simulators, prototyping requires a variety of components and is very time consuming. With the Open Tiled Manycore System-on-Chip (OpTiMSoC) we aim(More)
Ethernet, although initially conceived as a Local Area Network technology, has been steadily making inroads into access and core networks. This has led to a need for higher link speeds, which are now reaching 100 Gbit/s. Packet processing at this rate represents a significant challenge, that needs to be met efficiently, while minimizing power consumption(More)
