Recent Findings in Microprocessors and Microsystems Described by L. Lavagno and Colleagues

February 12, 2014



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- Researchers detail new data in Microprocessors and Microsystems. According to news reporting originating from Munich, Germany, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Writing parallel code is difficult, especially when starting from a sequential reference implementation."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, "Our research efforts, as demonstrated in this paper, face this challenge directly by providing an innovative toolset that helps software developers profile and parallelize an existing sequential implementation, by exploiting top-level pipeline-style parallelism. The innovation of our approach is based on the facts that (a) we use both automatic and profiling-driven estimates of the available parallelism, (b) we refine those estimates using metric-driven verification techniques, and we support dynamic recovery of excessively optimistic parallelization."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The proposed toolset has been utilized to find an efficient parallel code organization for a number of real-world representative applications, and a version of the toolset is provided in an open-source manner."
