Research Institution
Coherent Logix, Inc., (CLX) proposes to leverage significant previous and on-going investment in the massively parallel HyperX technology fabric by investigating enhancements to the HyperX hardware, application software, and tool flow to better support dynamic reconfiguration of processing and data flow. In addition to a demonstration of the current technology's capabilities, CLX proposes to make use of attributes inspired by the characteristics of biological systems (specifically the ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions and to continue to operate in the presence of defects or failures) to investigate enhancements that would enable a next-generation level of capability in the areas of dynamic reconfiguration and reallocation of computing resources and the dynamic routing of data. These enhancements will be developed while also improving the fabric's GOP/s/W rating (i.e., even further reducing power consumption). CLX proposes to deliver a conceptual design and simulation model for the enhanced fabric (the bioX Processor fabric) as well as the simulation results for a parallel application demonstrating dynamic reconfiguration of processing resources and data flow. A development plan addressing design-for-manufacturability, design-for-production, and volume production concerns will be produced.
