The principal objective of this course is to study the emerging areas of Application-Specific Multi-Processor System On Chip. The main idea is to gather key R & D people from the different domains required to master this new kind of systems where designers have to integrate more than one instruction set processor on a single chip, these may include DSPs and microcontrollers. Typical applications are wireless, image processing, XDSL, networking processors and game computers. Four main problems make the design of application-specific Multi-Processor System On Chip very hard and expensive:
system architecture with an on-chip communication network software targeting and executive code generation using (or not) an Operating System (OS) system validation at the functional level and the cycle-accurate level where multiple ISSs may be required testing the overall system.
The 5-day course is organized as a set of 9 half-day sessions including, each, a tutorial that gives a comprehensive presentation of a specific area. The sessions will also include invited talks describing state-of-the-arts research in academia and advanced practices from industry.
