Walk-Time Techniques: Catalyst for Architectural Change
September 1997 (vol. 30 no. 9)
pp. 40-42

A quantum leap in a compiler's ability to automatically extract parallelism from code would have enormous ramifications for future architectures, although the issue of compatibility with legacy software also hinders architectural innovation. The author describes walk-time techniques-translation techniques that change code after it is distributed. He contends that these techniques will lead to families of very different, yet surprisingly compatible, CPUs that are customized to specific application areas.
