PRiME research impresses at DATE 2015

| News

DATE, the Design, Automation and Test Conference and Exhibition is the unique European event that brings together researchers, user and companies as well as specialists in the design, test and manufacturing of electronic circuits and systems. Held yearly, this years event included a significant contribution from PRiME research and the research team from across the collaborating institutions.


PRiME was well represented at the DATE 2015 conference, with a combination of technical presentations, workshop papers and an exhibition stand showing technology demonstrators.

Ongoing PRiME research output was demonstrated upon a booth within the European Projects exhibition. During the three days the following demonstrators  were presented; Learning Based Inter and Intra Application Thermal Optimisation (Dr Anup Das), De-centralised Energy Minimisation of many-core systems (Dr Rishad Shafik) and Run-time Power Estimation in Mobile Platforms (Mr Matt Walker).

Assistant Professor Geoff Merrett co-chaired the technical session  “Automotive Systems and Smart Energy Systems”. Dr Anup Das gave a talk within the session entitled “Workload uncertainty Characterization and Adaptive Frequency Scaling for Energy Minimization of Embedded Systems”. His paper (available here) was nominated for Best Paper. Details are available through the file links below.

Dr Rishad Shafik presented at the workshop “Designing with Uncertainty – Opportunities & Challenges”. His presentation was titled “Thermal-Aware Adaptive Energy Minimization of OpenMP Parallel Applications”.

Newcastle University was represented by Dr Ashur Rafiev and Dr Fei Xia. Ashur  presented a paper ”Power Proportional Modelling Fidelity” at the “1st Workshop on Model-Implementation Fidelity”.
