Multiprocessor SoCs are no longer an advanced research topic for academia. Ninety percent of SoCs designed in 130-nm technology include at least one CPU. Most popular multimedia platforms are already multiprocessor SoCs. This roundtable brings together key...
The kill rule for multicore
Found in: Proceedings of the 44th annual conference on Design automation (DAC '07)
By Anant Agarwal, Markus Levy
Issue Date:June 2007
pp. 750-753
Multicore has shown significant performance and power advantages over single cores in commercial systems with a 2--4 cores. Applying a corollary of Moore's Law for multicore, we expect to see 1K multicore chips within a decade. 1K multicore systems introdu...
