  • Comparing last-level cache designs for CMP architectures 

    Vega, Augusto; Rico Carro, Alejandro; Cabarcas, Felipe; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro; Valero Cortés, Mateo (2010)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The emergence of hardware accelerators, such as graphics processing units (GPUs), has challenged the interaction between processing elements (PEs) and main memory. In architectures like the Cell/B.E. or GPUs, the PEs ...
  • Criticality-aware dynamic task scheduling for heterogeneous systems 

    Chronaki, Kallia; Rico Carro, Alejandro; Badia Sala, Rosa Maria; Ayguadé Parra, Eduard (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2015-05-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
  • Experiences with mobile processors for energy efficient HPC 

    Rajovic, Nikola; Rico Carro, Alejandro; Vipond, James; Gelado Fernandez, Isaac; Puzovic, Nikola; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro (2013)
    Conference report

    The performance of High Performance Computing (HPC) systems is already limited by their power consumption. The majority of top HPC systems today are built from commodity server components that were designed for maximizing ...
  • Interleaving granularity on high bandwidth memory architecture for CMPs 

    Cabarcas, Felipe; Rico Carro, Alejandro; Etsion, Yoav; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro (IEEE Computer Society Publications, 2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Memory bandwidth has always been a critical factor for the performance of many data intensive applications. The increasing processor performance, and the advert of single chip multiprocessors have increased the memory ...
  • On the simulation of large-scale architectures using multiple application abstraction levels 

    Rico Carro, Alejandro; Cabarcas, Felipe; Villavieja Prados, Carlos; Pavlovic, Milan; Vega, Augusto; Etsion, Yoav; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro; Valero Cortés, Mateo (2012-01-23)
    Article

    Simulation is a key tool for computer architecture research. In particular, cycle-accurate simulators are extremely important for microarchitecture exploration and detailed design decisions, but they are slow and, so, not ...
  • Raising the level of abstraction : simulation of large chip multiprocessors running multithreaded applications 

    Rico Carro, Alejandro (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-10-29)
    Doctoral thesis
  • Task management analysis on the CellBE 

    Rico Carro, Alejandro; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro; Valero Cortés, Mateo (2008-09)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    There is a clear industrial trend towards chip multiprocessors (CMP) as the most power efficient way of further increasing performance. Heterogeneous CMP architectures take one more step along this power efficiency trend ...
  • Task superscalar: an out-of-order task pipeline 

    Etsion, Yoav; Cabarcas, Felipe; Rico Carro, Alejandro; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro; Badia Sala, Rosa Maria; Ayguadé Parra, Eduard; Labarta Mancho, Jesús José; Valero Cortés, Mateo (IEEE Computer Society Publications, 2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present Task Superscalar, an abstraction of instruction-level out-of-order pipeline that operates at the tasklevel. Like ILP pipelines, which uncover parallelism in a sequential instruction stream, task superscalar ...
  • Trace-driven simulation of multithreaded applications 

    Rico Carro, Alejandro; Duran González, Alejandro; Cabarcas, Felipe; Etsion, Yoav; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro; Valero Cortés, Mateo (2011)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Over the past few years, computer architecture research has moved towards execution-driven simulation, due to the inability of traces to capture timing-dependent thread execution interleaving. However, trace-driven simulation ...
