6 Theoretically with multicore, you may get:  Higher Performance Increasing the cores -- unlimited computing power  !  Lower Power Consumption Increasing the cores, decreasing the clock frequency  Keep the “same performance” using ¼ of the energy 6 This sounds great for embedded & real-time applications!

7 CPU L1 CPU L1 CPU L1 CPU L1 CPU L1 CPU L1 CPU L1 CPU L1 Shared Resources Bandwidth Real-Time Applications on Multicores? L2 Cache Off-chip memory Problems: -- Cache contention -- Bus interference -- Multiprocessor scheduling -- Spinlocks/Queuing -- Cheap/expensive Synchronization 7

8 CoDeR-MP addressing the challenges:  Migrating legacy software to multicore Sequential code  parallelization Performance issues – memory problems Synchronization/locking problem  Developing new real-time software on multicore High-performance applications: “fast” – real-time applications Predictable real-time applications with guarantees: “correct” and “deterministic” Driven by Industrial Applications

9 Real-Time Tracking with parallel particle filter – SAAB

10 Real-Time Control – ABB Robotics ABCD CommandsHigh-level instructions Precise moves Requests Welding program IRC5 robot controller Mixed Hard and Soft Real-Time Tasks 20% hard real-time tasks Main concerns: Isolation between hard & soft tasks: “fire walls” Real-time guarantee for the 20% “super” RT tasks Migration to multicore?

11 Goals of CoDeR-MP New techniques for High-performance Real-Time applications & Predictable Real Time applications on multi-core processors Mixed applications on the same multi-core chip 20% Hard RT 60% Soft RT 20% Others

12 Project Plan  Task 1 (Demonstrators) Migration of IRC5 robot controller onto multicore platform ( guidelines and tools for performance and real-time guarantees) Multicore implementation of parallel alg. for ground target tracking  Task 2 (Application diagnostics for migration) Methods and tools for modeling, adaptation, integration and evaluation of design alternatives  Task 3 (Application parallelization) Parallel algorithms for control and signal processing  Task 4 (Resource allocation for real-time/”predictable”) Multicore scheduling (processor cores and caches)  Task 5 (Resource allocation for performance/”fast”) Resource modeling and management

15 CoDeR-MP: Project Structure  Techniques/tools for real-time guarantees Wang et al  Techniques/tools for performance guarantees Erik, Bengt et al  Industrial Applications: real-time signal processing Alexander and Mats

16 Main achievements  Industrial applications SAAB shows great interests in using the parallel signal processing algorithms developed within CoDeR-MP for real-time tracking ABB robotics shows great interests of using the CoDeR-MP performance modeling/profiling tools  Academic research 20 (peer-reviewed) papers on good/top conferences 2 best paper awards: IEEE RTSS 2009 and HiPEAC best paper nominations (IEEE RTSS09, IEEE RTSS10, IEEE RTAS10, IEEE RTAS11 & HiPEAC11) Solved a 37-year open problem for multiprocessor scheduling  Successful FP 7 collaboration, 4 proposals! Wang, CERTAINTY (Mixed embedded applications on multicores), likely to be funded Erik (passed the threshold, cliff-hanger) Wang, Encore (passed the threshold) Bengt (passed the threshold)

17 Demonstrators (in progress)  Real-Time Tracking Running on “recorded data”  Migration of legacy code Prototype tools for performance analysis Cache coloring on LINUX for real-time guarantee
