The end of Dennard Scaling has forced architects to focus on designing for execution efficiency. Course-grained reconfigurable architectures (CGRAs) are a class of architectures that provide a configurable grouping of functional units that aim to bridge the gap between the power and performance of custom hardware and the flexibility of software. Despite their potential benefit, CGRAs face a major adoption challenge as they do not execute a standard instruction stream. Dynamic translation for… CONTINUE READING
