Special session on Virtual Manycore Platforms at DATE 2011, March 16, Grenoble

R Leupers, RWTH Aachen
G Martin, Tensilica

F Ghenassia, STMicroelectronics

The evolution to manycore platforms is real, both in the High-Performance Computing domain and in embedded systems. If we start with ten or more cores, we can see the evolution to many tens of cores and to platforms with 100 or more occurring in the next few years. These platforms are…
