|SMECY envisions that recently emerged multi-core technologies will
rapidly develop to massively parallel computing environments, which|
to improved performance, energy and cost properties will, in a few
years, extensively penetrate the embedded system industry sectors.
will affect and shape the whole business landscape, e.g. semiconductor
vendors need to be capable of offering advanced multi-core
to diverse application sectors, Intellectual Property (IP) providers
need to re-target existing and develop new solutions to be
with evolving multi-core platforms and the need of embedded system
houses, in addition to product architecture adaptations and
their system, architecture, software and hardware development processes.
complexity of future smart multi-core embedded systems requires
holistic system integration because of stringent constraints on e.g.
and time to market that can only be mastered using a design approach
that optimizes interaction between SoC design and
approaches. Therefore, many companies that traditionally have a culture
rooted in nano and microelectronics express an
urgent need in
acquiring know-how and competences in embedded software. Equally urgent
is the need of embedded system houses to be
able to transform their
current product assets to use multi-cores and at the same time to
establish development processes in order to fully
mission of the SMECY project is to develop new programming technologies
enabling the exploitation of many (100s) core architectures.
technologies are strategic to keep and win market shares in all areas
of embedded systems. ARTEMIS covers well most aspects of
systems, but efficient programming of multi-core architectures for
various resources-constrained embedded system applications,
consumer, wireless and some transportation fields, is still a grand
challenge waiting to be solved. The goal of this ARTEMIS project is
launch an ambitious European initiative to allow Europe to catch up
with Asia (e.g. teams funded by JST/CREST programmes) and USA
PARLAB in Berkeley, Parallel@illinois and Pervasive Parallelism
Laboratory in Stanford) and to enable Europe to become the leader.
key outcomes of the SMECY project are programming and design methods,
multi-core programmable architectural solutions and
supporting tools that enable a holistic integration of multi-core SoC
design and embedded software to master smart system design
smart multi-core embedded systems in different applications, e.g.
consumer, wireless, communication and transportation.
