I. Sourdis speaks on 'DeSyRe Project and its Reconfigurability Aspect' during the HiPEAC Computing Systems Week

Ghent, Belgium - October 17 2012 - Ioannis Sourdis (Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden) speaks on 'The DeSyRe Project and its Reconfigurability Aspects' in a session on Reconfigurable Computing during the HiPEAC Computing Systems Week, on Wednesday, October 17 at 11:00.

The DeSyRe project performs research on the design of future reliable Systems-on-Chip (SoCs). As semiconductor technology scales, chips are becoming ever less reliable, while power consumption is increasing and performance scaling is becoming more difficult. In the face of such radical changes in the technological landscape, current solutions for fault-tolerance are expected to introduce an excessive overhead in future SoCs. At the increasing fault-rates, expected in the upcoming technology generations, DeSyRe develops new design techniques for future SoCs, improving their reliability and reducing their power and performance overheads for fault-tolerance. In this talk, an overview of the DeSyRe project is given, focusing on the reconfigurability and system-adaptation aspects for fault-tolerance.
