—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 recent years, designing specialized manycore heterogeneous architectures for deep learning kernels has become an area of great interest. However, the typical on-chip communication infrastructures employed on conventional manycore platforms are unable to handle <i>both</i> CPU and GPU communication requirements efficiently. Hence, in this paper, our aim(More)
This paper explains the strategy of cutting a circular hole in a wall and removing the cut piece with a humanoid robot. The two difficult aspects of this task are how the robot turns on the drill and how the wall is cut following the desired trajectory while the robot avoids the torque limit of its joints. This is because the robot we used, THORMANG,(More)
During the last decade, we have witnessed a major transition from computation- to communication-centric design of integrated circuits and systems. In particular, the network-on-chip (NoC) approach has emerged as the major design paradigm for multicore systems-on-chip (SoC). The major challenges in traditional wire-based NoCs are the high latency and power(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)
