Dynamically reconfigurable processors with multi-context facility have been used for various applications. The relationship between context size and performance of such processors is analyzed based on real designs. The parallelism diagram which shows the required PEs in each step of the algorithm is introduced as the basis of the analysis, and models for(More)
A fine-grain dynamic power gating is proposed for saving the leakage power in MIPS R3000 by sleep control and applied to a processor pipeline. An execution unit is divided into four small units: multiplier, divider, shifter and other (CLU). The power of each unit is cut off dynamically, based on the operation. We tape-outed the prototype chip Geyser-0,(More)
Dynamically Reconfigurable Processor (DRP) developed by NEC Electronics is a coarse grain re-configurable processor that selects a data path from the on-chip repository of sixteen circuit configurations , or contexts, to implement different logic on one single DRP chip. Several stream applications have been implemented on the DRP-1, the first prototype(More)
We propose a cryptographic accelerator for IPsec by using the NEC electronics' Dynamically Reconfig-urable Processor (DRP). In our system, an embedded processor and DRP are integrated in a System-on-a-Chip (SoC) and multiple cryptographic tasks can be accelerated by DRP. Moreover, the virtual hardware mechanism, which dynamically changes its configuration(More)
The power consumption of dynamically reconfigurable processing array (DRPA) is quantitatively analyzed by using a real chip layout and applications taking into account the reconfiguration power. Evaluation result shows that processing power for PEs is dominant and reconfiguration power is about 20.7% of the total dynamic power consumption. Based on the(More)

Dynamically reconfigurable processor (DRP) developed by NEC Electronics is a coarse grain reconfigurable processor that selects a datapath called a context from the on-chip repository of sixteen circuit configurations at runtime. The time-multiplexed execution based on the multi-context functionality is expected to drastically improve area and power(More)
MuCCRA-Cube is a scalable three dimensional dynamically reconfigurable processor. By stacking multiple dies connected with inductive-coupling links, the number of PE array can be increased so that the required performance is achieved. A prototype chip with 90nm CMOS process consisting of four dies each of which has a 4 × 4 PE array was implemented.(More)
