    • A novel access pattern-based multi-core memory architecture 

      Hussain, Tassadaq (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-12-18)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Increasingly High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications run on heterogeneous multi-core platforms. The basic reason of the growing popularity of these architectures is their low power consumption, and high throughput ...
    • Design and implementation of a Multimedia Extension for a RISC Processor 

      Martínez Montes, Eduardo Jonathan (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-07-02)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Design and implementation of a Multimedia Extension for a RISC Processor in a FPGA
    • Design of energy-efficient vector units for in-order cores 

      Stanić, Milan (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-01-31)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      In the last 15 years, power dissipation and energy consumption have become crucial design concerns for almost all computer systems. Technology feature size scaling leads to higher power density and therefore to complex and ...
    • Infrastructure and functional correctness in the verification of a RISC-V vector accelerator 

      Rodríguez Pérez, Mario (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2022-01-26)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Barcelona Supercomputing Center
      When we talk about hardware development, many efforts are made to tape out a bug-free design. The hardware fabrication process costs enormous amounts of money to the companies, so they can not afford to produce faulty ...
    • Novel vector architectures for data management 

      Hayes, Timothy (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-07-08)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      As the rate of annual data generation grows exponentially, there is a demand to manage, query and summarise vast amounts of information quickly. In the past, frequency scaling was relied upon to push application throughput. ...
    • Specialization and reconfiguration of lightweight mobile processors for data-parallel applications 

      Duric, Milovan (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-01-26)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      The worldwide utilization of mobile devices makes the segment of low power mobile processors leading in the entire computer industry. Customers demand low-cost, high-performance and energy-efficient mobile devices, which ...
    • Verification of a floating point reduction unit 

      Díaz Ortega, Iván (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-07-01)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      This thesis goes around the effort made to verify a submodule of a vector processing unit or VPU. This submodule is the one in charge of performing vector reductions, and due to the nature of some of the reductions, an ...
