  Design patterns percolating to parallel programming framework implementation
Aldinucci M., Campa S., Danelutto M., Kilpatrick P., Torquati M.  International Journal of Parallel Programming 42(6): 1012-1031, 2014. Type: Article

Structured parallel programming is employed to effectively address challenges in parallel programming. Recently, Danelutto et al. [1] proposed a set of architecture-independent, reusable, parallel building blocks (RISC-pb2l) for high-le...

  Lazy instruction scheduling: keeping performance, reducing power
Mahjur A., Taghizadeh M., Jahangir A.  Low power electronics and design (Proceeding of the Thirteenth International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design, Bangalore, India,  Aug 11-13, 2008) 375-380, 2008. Type: Proceedings

The problem of “useless instruction execution” is addressed in this paper. An instruction is useless if the result is never used. With reasonable compilers, this problem can only take place when conditional branches occur between the i...

  ASIP instruction encoding for energy and area reduction
Morgan P., Taylor R.  Design automation (Proceedings of the 44th Annual Conference on Design Automation, San Diego, California,  Jun 4-8, 2007) 797-800, 2007. Type: Proceedings

Application-specific very long instruction word (VLIW) instruction processors are developed to reduce area and energy consumption. This interesting paper proposes to convert some of the most frequent opcodes to short opcodes, using additional deco...

  An FPGA-based VLIW processor with custom hardware execution
Jones A., Hoare R., Kusic D., Fazekas J., Foster J.  Field-programmable gate arrays (Proceedings of the 2005 ACM/SIGDA 13th International Symposium on Field-programmable Gate Arrays, Monterey, California,  Feb 20-22, 2005) 107-117, 2005. Type: Proceedings

This is a very exciting piece of research in the general area of configurable, extensible processors and the software/hardware interface. The authors propose a hybrid architecture, consisting of a parameterized very long instruction word (VLIW) co...

  LZW-based code compression for VLIW embedded systems
Lin C., Xie Y., Wolf W.  Design, automation and test in Europe (Proceedings of the Conference on Design, Automation and Test in Europe, Paris, France,  Feb 16-20, 2004) 76-81, 2004. Type: Proceedings

This is a relevant piece of work in the domain of dynamic code compression and decompression in deeply embedded central processing units. The authors identify the code between two branch/jump targets as a potentially good candidate for compression...

  Design of a multimedia processor based on metrics computation
Amor N., Le Moullec Y., Diguet J., Philippe J., Abid M.  Advances in Engineering Software 36(7): 448-458, 2005. Type: Article

A novel approach for the creation of a multimedia processor is presented in this paper. Three steps to customize a general-purpose processor (GPP) based on the detailed analysis of a target application are described, and these steps are demonstrat...

  Guide to assembly language programming in Linux
Dandamudi S.,  Springer-Verlag New York, Inc., Secaucus, NJ, 2005. 552 pp. Type: Book (9780387258973)

Many books on assembly language programming for Intel machines appear on the bookshelves of any library, a situation easily explained by the success of the IA-32 architecture and its availability. Assembly language programming deals with registers...

  Guide to RISC processors: for programmers and engineers
Dandamudi S.,  Springer-Verlag New York, Inc., Secaucus, NJ, 2005. 387 pp. Type: Book (9780387210179)

An elementary introduction to reduced instruction set computing (RISC) processors, with an overall emphasis on the machine-level language and not on functional chip design, is presented in this book. It is split into three sections: a brief compar...

  Time optimal software pipelining of loops with control flows
Yun H., Kim J., Moon S.  International Journal of Parallel Programming 31(5): 339-391, 2003. Type: Article

This paper is in the area of compiler optimizations for processors, such as very long instruction word (VLIW) and super scalar, processors which exploit instruction-level parallelism. A well-known technique is software pipelining of loops in the i...

  A cost-effective design for MPEG-2 audio decoder with embedded RISC core
Tsai T., Wu R., Chen L.  Journal of VLSI Signal Processing Systems 29(3): 255-265, 2001. Type: Article

The reproduction of MPEG audio files is becoming a hot topic in both the scientific and entertainment arenas, motivating a lot of research in the area with the goal of achieving high performance with contained power consumption. Since the algorith...
