Sammanfattning : To err is human, and machines help us avoiding errors. This thesis presents two ways, based on verification technology, to prevent failures.Safety critical Real-Time Java applications usually need a certification. Tests fulfilling specific coverage criteria can be part of such certification, like in the DO-178 standard. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Reducing the precision of floating-point values is an effective approach to achieve higher performance as well as higher energy-efficiency. This is especially true for GPUs, since many of its common tasks are inherently insensitive to precision-reduction. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : A key challenge in modern computing systems is to access data fast enough to fully utilize the computing elements in the chip. In Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), the performance is often constrained by register file size, memory bandwidth, and the capacity of the main memory. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The ever shrinking size of the MOS transistors brings the promise of scalable Network-on-Chip (NoC) architectures containing hundreds of processing elements with on-chip communication, all integrated into a single die. Such a computational fabric will provide high levels of performance in an energy efficient manner. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : On-chip caches are essential as they bridge the growing speed-gap between off-chip memory and processors. To this end, processing cores are sacrificed for more cache space in the chip's real estate, possibly affecting the cache access time and power dissipation. LÄS MER
