NC Researchers Claim Pathway for Processor Scalability
Researchers sponsored by Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), the world's leading university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies, today announced that they have identified a path to overcome challenges for scaling multi-core semiconductors by successfully addressing how to scale memory communications among the cores. The results can lead to continued design of ever-smaller integrated circuits (ICs) into computer hardware without expensive writing of all new software from scratch to accommodate the increased capabilities. The announcement involves researchers Professor Daniel Sorin from Duke University, Professor Milo M.K. Martin from University of Pennsylvania and Professor Mark D. Hill from University of Wisconsin.
