22 Aug 2014 - € 4.2 million to program supercomputers-on-a-chip
Supercomputers-on-a-chip, also known as high-performance embedded systems, are the answer to the quest for higher performance and lower energy consumption using ever smaller chips. Unfortunately, these systems are extremely difficult to program.As part of a European FP7 project, researchers at the University of Twente want to develop new programming methods that make it easier to invest the chips used in devices such as mobile phones with the capabilities of a supercomputer. In collaboration with seven partners, including Dutch firm Recore Systems, they have succeeded in landing a European-Commission-funded project with a total budget of €4.2 million.This international research project goes by the name of Programming Large Scale Heterogeneous Infrastructure, POLCA for short.
