  • Accurate off-line phase classification for HW/SW co-designed processors 

    Brankovic, Aleksandar; Stavrou, Kyriakos; Gibert Codina, Enric; González Colás, Antonio María (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Evaluation techniques in microprocessor design are mostly based on simulating selected application's samples using a cycle-accurate simulator. These samples usually correspond to different phases of the application stream. ...

    Brankovic, Aleksandar; Stavrou, Kyriakos; Gibert Codina, Enric; González Colás, Antonio María (IEEE, 2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Dynamic Binary Translators and Optimizers (DBTOs) have been established as a hot research topic. They are used in many different systems, such as emulation, instrumentation tools and innovative HW/SW co-designed ...
  • HW/SW co-designed processors: Challenges, design choices and a simulation infrastructure for evaluation 

    Kumar, Rakesh; Cano, José; Brankovic, Aleksandar; Pavlou, Demos; Stavrou, Kyriakos; Gibert Codina, Enric; Martínez, Alejandro; González Colás, Antonio María (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Improving single thread performance is a key challenge in modern microprocessors especially because the traditional approach of increasing clock frequency and deep pipelining cannot be pushed further due to power constraints. ...
  • Performance analysis and predictability of the software layer in Dynamic Binary Translators/Optimizers 

    Brankovic, Aleksandar; Stavrou, K.; Gibert Codina, Enric; Gonzalez, Antonio (ACM, 2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Dynamic Binary Translators and Optimizers (DBTOs) have been established as a common architecture during the last years. They are used in many different systems, such as emulation, instrumentation tools and innovative HW/SW ...
  • Performance simulation methodologies for hardware/software co-designed processors 

    Brankovic, Aleksandar (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-03-17)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Recently the community started looking into Hardware/Software (HW/SW) co-designed processors as potential solutions to move towards the less power consuming and the less complex designs. Unlike other solutions, they reduce ...
  • Quantitative characterization of the software layer of a HW/SW co-designed processor 

    Cano Reyes, José; Kumar, Rakesh; Brankovic, Aleksandar; Pavlou, Demos; Stavrou, Kyriakos; Gibert Codina, Enric; Martínez, Alejandro; González Colás, Antonio María (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    HW/SW co-designed processors currently have a renewed interest due to their capability to boost performance without running into the power and complexity walls. By employing a software layer that performs dynamic binary ...
