Abstract [en]

The future trend in microprocessors for the more advanced embedded systems is focusing on massively parallel reconfigurable architectures, consisting of heterogeneous ensembles of hundreds of processing elements communicating over a reconfigurable interconnection network. However, the mastering of low-level micro-architectural details involved in programming of such massively parallel platforms becomes too cumbersome, which limits their adoption in many applications. Thus there is a dire need of an approach to produce high-performance scalable implementations that harness the computational resources of the emerging reconfigurable platforms.This paper addresses the grand challenge of accessibility of these diverse reconfigurable platforms by suggesting the use of a high-level language, occam-pi, and developing a complete design flow for building, compiling, and generating machine code for heterogeneous coarse-grained hardware. We have evaluated the approach by implementing complex industrial case studies and three common signal processing algorithms. The results of the implemented case-studies suggest that the occam-pi language based approach, because of its well-defined semantics for expressing concurrency and reconfigurability, simplifies the development of applications employing run-time reconfigurable devices. The associated compiler framework ensures portability as well as the performance benefits across heterogeneous platforms.
