Grant from the FRC in DKK:
A multi-core architecture enables in principle a performance increase proportional to the number of cores, compared to similar single-core architecture. However, this performance benefit is typically limited by sequential code, synchronization overhead, and communication congestion. These issues become more apparent in real-time systems where the performance is limited by the worst-case execution time. This project aims to alleviate some of these issues, allowing multi-core architectures to come closer to their full performance potential.
The goal of the project is to submit three papers on the subject that aim to create or optimize technology for multicore synchronization and communication, concluded by the Ph.D. thesis. The technology developed will be of use within the real-time community and possibly in mobile phones and personal computers.
The project is structured as a 2-year Ph.D. project with 4 half-year milestones. Each main goal is represented as a milestone, one for each paper and one for the thesis. In addition to the work on the papers, compulsory course and dissemination work is planned.
Part of the dissemination work is planned to be done in cooperation with the University of the Faroe Islands, either as co-supervisor to bachelor students, teaching assistant in remote courses or actual teacher in courses converted from remote to local.
