  • PTAT: An Efficient and Precise Tool for Tracing and Profiling Detailed TLB
    • Abstract: Jiutian Zhang, Yuhang Liu, Haifeng Li, Xiaojing Zhu, Mingyu Chen

      As the memory access footprints of applications in areas like data analytics increase, the latency overhead of translation lookaside buffer (TLB) misses increases. Thus, the efficiency of TLB becomes increasingly critical for overall system performance. Analyzing TLB miss traces is useful for hardware architecture design and software application optimization. Utilizing cycle-accurate simulators or instrumentation tools is very time-consuming and/or inaccurate for tracing and profiling TLB misses. In this article, we propose an efficient and precise tool to collect and profile last-level TLB misses. This tool utilizes a novel software method called Page Table Access Tracing (PTAT), storing last-level page table entries of certain workload processes into a reserved uncached memory region.

  • Dynamic Energy Management of FPGA Accelerators in Embedded Systems
    • Abstract: Mohammad Hosseinabady, Jose Luis Nunez-Yanez

      In this article, we investigate how to utilise an Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) in an embedded system to save energy. For this purpose, we study the energy efficiency of a hybrid FPGA-CPU device that can switch task execution between hardware and software with a focus on periodic tasks. To increase the applicability of this task switching, we also consider the voltage and frequency scaling (VFS) applied to the FPGA to reduce the system energy consumption. We show that in some cases, if the task’s period is higher than a specific level, the FPGA accelerator cannot reduce the energy consumption associated to the task and the software version is the most energy efficient option.

  • Compact Software Implementation of Public-Key Cryptography on MSP430X
    • Abstract: Hwajeong Seo

      On the low-end embedded processors, the implementations of Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) are considered to be a challenging task due to the limited computation power and storage of the low-end embedded processors. Particularly, the multi-precision multiplication and squaring operations are the most expensive operations for ECC implementations. In order to enhance the performance, many works presented efficient multiplication and squaring routines on the target devices. Recent works show that 128-bit security level ECC is available within a second and this is practically fast enough for IoT services. However, previous approaches missed the other important storage issues (i.e., program size, ROM). Considering that the embedded processors only have a few KB ROM, we need to pay attention to the compact ROM size with reasonable performance.

  • Algorithm/Architecture Co-optimisation Technique for Automatic Data
           Reduction of Wireless Read-Out in High-Density Electrode Arrays
    • Abstract: Yahya H. Yassin, Francky Catthoor, Fabian Kloosterman, Jyh-Jang Sun, JoãO Couto, Per Gunnar Kjeldsberg, Nick Van Helleputte

      High-density electrode arrays used to read out neural activity will soon surpass the limits of the amount of data that can be transferred within reasonable energy budgets. This is true for wired brain implants when the required bandwidth becomes very high, and even more so for untethered brain implants that require wireless transmission of data. We propose an energy-efficient spike data extraction solution for high-density electrode arrays, capable of reducing the data to be transferred by over 85%. We combine temporal and spatial spike data analysis with low implementation complexity, where amplitude thresholds are used to detect spikes and the spatial location of the electrodes is used to extract potentially useful sub-threshold data on neighboring electrodes.

  • Runtime Precomputation of Data-Dependent Parameters in Embedded Systems
    • Abstract: Elena Hammari, Per Gunnar Kjeldsberg, Francky Catthoor

      In many modern embedded systems, the available resources (e.g., CPU clock cycles, memory, and energy) are consumed nonuniformly while the system is under exploitation. Typically, the resource requirements in the system change with different input data that the system process. These data trigger different parts of the embedded software, resulting in different operations executed that require different hardware platform resources to be used. A significant research effort has been dedicated to develop mechanisms for runtime resource management (e.g., branch prediction for pipelined processors, prefetching of data from main memory to cache, and scenario-based design methodologies). All these techniques rely on the availability of information at runtime about upcoming changes in resource requirements.

  • Self-Adaptive Filtering Algorithm with PCM-Based Memory Storage System
    • Abstract: Su-Kyung Yoon, Jitae Yun, Jung-Geun Kim, Shin-Dug Kim

      This article proposes a new phase change memory– (PCM) based memory storage architecture with associated self-adaptive data filtering for various embedded devices to support energy efficiency as well as high computing power. In this approach, PCM-based memory storage can be used as working memory and mass storage layers simultaneously, and a self-adaptive data filtering module composed of small DRAM dual buffers was designed to improve unfavorable PCM features, such as asymmetric read/write access latencies and limited endurance and enhance spatial/temporal localities. In particular, the self-adaptive data filtering algorithm enhances data reusability by screening potentially high reusable data and predicting adequate lifetime of those data depending on current victim time decision value.

  • Extended Redundant-Digit Instruction Set for Energy-Efficient Processors
    • Abstract: Saba Amanollahi, Ghassem Jaberipur

      The impact of extending the instruction set architecture (ISA) of a conventional binary processor by a set of redundant-digit arithmetic instructions is studied. Selected binary arithmetic instructions within a given code sequence are replaced with appropriate redundant-digit ones. The selection criteria is so enforced to lead to overall reduction of execution energy and energy-delay product (EDP). A special branch and bound algorithm is devised to modify the dataflow graph (DFG) to a new one that takes advantage of the extended redundant-digit instruction set. The DFG is obtained, via an in-house tool, from the intermediate code representation that is normally produced by the utilized compiler.

  • Schedulability Analysis of Tasks with Corunner-Dependent Execution Times
    • Abstract: BJörn Andersson, Hyoseung Kim, Dionisio De Niz, Mark Klein, Ragunathan (Raj) Rajkumar, John Lehoczky

      Consider fixed-priority preemptive partitioned scheduling of constrained-deadline sporadic tasks on a multiprocessor. A task generates a sequence of jobs and each job has a deadline that must be met. Assume tasks have Corunner-dependent execution times; i.e., the execution time of a job J depends on the set of jobs that happen to execute (on other processors) at instants when J executes. We present a model that describes Corunner-dependent execution times. For this model, we show that exact schedulability testing is co-NP-hard in the strong sense. Facing this complexity, we present a sufficient schedulability test, which has pseudo-polynomial-time complexity if the number of processors is fixed.

  • Combining Software Cache Partitioning and Loop Tiling for Effective Shared
           Cache Management
    • Abstract: Kelefouras Vasilios, Keramidas Georgios, Voros Nikolaos

      One of the biggest challenges in multicore platforms is shared cache management, especially for data-dominant applications. Two commonly used approaches for increasing shared cache utilization are cache partitioning and loop tiling. However, state-of-the-art compilers lack efficient cache partitioning and loop tiling methods for two reasons. First, cache partitioning and loop tiling are strongly coupled together, and thus addressing them separately is simply not effective. Second, cache partitioning and loop tiling must be tailored to the target shared cache architecture details and the memory characteristics of the corunning workloads. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that a methodology provides (1) a theoretical foundation in the above-mentioned cache management mechanisms and (2) a unified framework to orchestrate these two mechanisms in tandem (not separately).

  • OnNetwork+: Network Delay-Aware Management for Mobile Systems
    • Abstract: Hyeonggyu Kim, Minho Ju, Soontae Kim

      Network errors such as packet losses consume large amounts of energy. We analyzed the reason for this through measurements using the latest smartphones and full-system simulation. We found that on packet losses the smartphones maintain high frequencies for CPU without doing useful work. To address this problem, we propose a method for reducing the energy consumption by lowering the performance level by exploiting a dynamic voltage and frequency scaling mechanism when long network delays are expected.

  • A Hierarchical Distributed Runtime Resource Management Scheme for
           NoC-Based Many-Cores
    • Abstract: Vasileios Tsoutsouras, Iraklis Anagnostopoulos, Dimosthenis Masouros, Dimitrios Soudris

      As technology constantly strengthens its presence in all aspects of human life, computing systems integrate a high number of processing cores, whereas applications become more complex and greedy for computational resources. Inevitably, this high increase in processing elements combined with the unpredictable resource requirements of executed applications at design time impose new design constraints to resource management of many-core systems, turning the distributed functionality into a necessity. In this work, we present a distributed runtime resource management framework for many-core systems utilizing a network-on-chip (NoC) infrastructure. Specifically, we couple the concept of distributed management with parallel applications by assigning different roles to the available computing resources.

  • On the Limitations of Analyzing Worst-Case Dynamic Energy of Processing
    • Abstract: Jeremy Morse, Steve Kerrison, Kerstin Eder

      This article examines dynamic energy consumption caused by data during software execution on deeply embedded microprocessors, which can be significant on some devices. In worst-case energy consumption analysis, energy models are used to find the most costly execution path. Taking each instruction’s worst-case energy produces a safe but overly pessimistic upper bound. Algorithms for safe and tight bounds would be desirable. We show that finding exact worst-case energy is NP-hard, and that tight bounds cannot be approximated with guaranteed safety. We conclude that any energy model targeting tightness must either sacrifice safety or accept overapproximation proportional to data-dependent energy.

  • Improving SIMD Parallelism via Dynamic Binary Translation
    • Abstract: Ding-Yong Hong, Yu-Ping Liu, Sheng-Yu Fu, Jan-Jan Wu, Wei-Chung Hsu

      Recent trends in SIMD architecture have tended toward longer vector lengths, and more enhanced SIMD features have been introduced in newer vector instruction sets. However, legacy or proprietary applications compiled with short-SIMD ISA cannot benefit from the long-SIMD architecture that supports improved parallelism and enhanced vector primitives, resulting in only a small fraction of potential peak performance. This article presents a dynamic binary translation technique that enables short-SIMD binaries to exploit benefits of new SIMD architectures by rewriting short-SIMD loop code. We propose a general approach that translates loops consisting of short-SIMD instructions to machine-independent IR, conducts SIMD loop transformation/optimization at this IR level, and finally translates to long-SIMD instructions.

  • Compact Implementations of ARX-Based Block Ciphers on IoT Processors
    • Abstract: Hwajeong Seo, Ilwoong Jeong, Jungkeun Lee, Woo-Hwan Kim

      In this article, we present implementations for Addition, Rotation, and eXclusive-or (ARX)-based block ciphers, including LEA and HIGHT, on IoT devices, including 8-bit AVR, 16-bit MSP, 32-bit ARM, and 32-bit ARM-NEON processors. We optimized 32-/8-bitwise ARX operations for LEA and HIGHT block ciphers by considering variations in word size, the number of general purpose registers, and the instruction set of the target IoT devices. Finally, we achieved the most compact implementations of LEA and HIGHT block ciphers.
