Heterogeneous systems consisting of multi-core CPUs, Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and many-core accelerators have gained widespread use by application developers and data-center platform developers. Modern day heterogeneous systems have evolved to include advanced hardware and software features to support a spectrum of application patterns.(More)
As we move into a new era of heterogeneous multi-core systems, our ability to tune the performance and understand the reliability of both hardware and software becomes more challenging. Given the multiplicity of different design trade-offs in hardware and software, and the rate of introduction of new architectures and hardware/software features, it becomes(More)
Heterogeneous computing using Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) has become an attractive computing model given the available scale of data-parallel performance and programming standards such as OpenCL. However, given the energy issues present with GPUs, some devices can exhaust power budgets quickly. Better solutions are needed to effectively exploit the(More)
Speech recognition is used in a wide range of applications and devices such as mobile phones, in-car entertainment systems and web-based services. Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) is one of the most popular algorithmic approaches applied in speech recognition. Training and testing a HMM is computationally intensive and time-consuming. Running multiple(More)
Heterogeneous systems have grown in popularity within the commercial platform and application developer communities. We have seen a growing number of systems incorporating CPUs, Graphics Processors (GPUs) and Accelerated Processing Units (APUs combine a CPU and GPU on the same chip). These emerging class of platforms are now being targeted to accelerate(More)
GPUs have gained tremendous popularity in a broad range of application domains. These applications possess varying grains of parallelism and place high demands on compute resources -- many times imposing real-time constraints, requiring flexible work schedules, and relying on concurrent execution of multiple kernels on the device. These requirements present(More)
Graphics processing units (GPUs) have become widely accepted as the computing platform of choice in many high performance computing domains. The availability of programming standards such as OpenCL are used to leverage the inherent parallelism offered by GPUs. Source code optimizations such as loop unrolling and tiling when targeted to heterogeneous(More)
The NVIDIA Jetson is demonstrated as a competitive HPC platform. The Jetson has 192 Kepler CUDA cores that are "true" in that they share a processor: in the case of the Jetson, a 32-bit ARM Cortex-A15 variant low power architecture. Our work explores the use cases of the Jetson TK1 board as an interface device for cloud computing, and also as a scalable(More)
