Today, we use various computing systems in our day-to-day life, like personal computers, smartphones, and tablets – all built on so called multicore hardware platforms. A multicore consists of a couple of processors. The next step in hardware architecture is so called manycores, consisting of many hundred processors. Research at Halmstad University aims to make programming of manycores more efficient.
Essayas Gebrewahid, a PhD student in the research environment EIS (Halmstad Embedded and Intelligent Systems research) at School of Information Technology at Halmstad University, defends his licentiate thesis on Compiling Concurrent Programs for Manycores on March 20. Essayas Gebrewahid’s research aims to facilitate the programming for manycore architecture.
– Embedded manycore architectures are going mainstream: from experimental academic ideas to commercial products. Programmers will soon no longer be experts in the low-level architectural details, instead they will have to rely on tools that can exploit the different forms of parallelism and specific features of the hardware. In the thesis I identify and implement abstraction layers in compilation tools to decrease the burden of the programmer, increase programming productivity and program portability for manycores and analyse their impact on performance and efficiency, says Essayas Gebrewahid.
