Computer Architectures



Scientific Ref.: Sandro Bartolini
Activities:

This laboratory hosts both research and teaching activities in the area of Computer Architecture.


The main research/teaching topics addressed in the laboratory are related to:
- High Performance Computing
- On-chip Photonics for Chip Multiprocessors
- Programmability of Multi-/Many-core systems
- Embedded System Design
- Optimization strategies for HW/SW adaptation

Examples of application domains that can take advantage from these activities are:
- High Performance Computing (Datacenters, Web Farms, Massively Parallel applications, Financial Algorithms …)
- Multimedia elaboration (Medical, Astronomical…)
- Embedded Systems (Real Time, Robotics, Industrial automation, Automotive…)
- Mobile Applications (iPhone, Android markets)
