Opensource Tools and Platforms for Agile Development of Specialized Architectures
Moderator:
Antonino Tumeo - Pacific Northwest National Lab
Organizer:
Antonino Tumeo - Pacific Northwest National Lab, Richland, WA
As new technology nodes have started to progressively provide diminishing returns in terms of power consumption and performance, we have entered a new golden era for domain-specific architectures at all system scales. However, developing specialized architectures currently requires substantial efforts and large teams, for both hardware and software. Several research initiatives are developing new tools, interfaces, intellectual properties, and platforms to enable small development teams to explore and implement specialized systems with quick, modularized, and fail fast (Agile). At the same time, there is a desire to provide opensource, community driven, and interoperable systems to maximize reuse and facilitate integration. The talks of this special session discuss openly available tools and platforms that allows to quickly transition the design of specialized architectures from the high-level algorithmic descriptions to their implementation.
