European Commisision's projectTERAFLUX - Exploiting dataflow parallelism in Teradevice Computing (EC-FP7-249013)
Thanks to the improvements in semiconductor technologies, extreme-scale systems such as teradevices (i.e., composed by 1000 billion of transistors) will enable systems with 1000+ general purpose cores per chip, probably by 2020. Three major challenges have been identified: programmability, manageable architecture design, and reliability. TERAFLUX is a Future and Emerging Technology (FET) large-scale project funded by the European Union, which addresses such challenges at once by leveraging the dataflow principles. This paper describes the project and provides an overview of the research carried out by the TERAFLUX consortium.
