    PRiME Releases a New Software Tool – the PRiME Framework

    | Demonstrators, News, Tools

    PRiME is pleased to announce the release of PRiME Framework which enables application- and platform-agnostic runtime management. Being able to balance the competing needs of application performance with the minimisation of system power is essential for future systems and one way to achieve this is with application-aware runtime management of system behaviour. There are many runtime management […]

    PRiME Performance, Energy and Reliability Modelling Tool

    | Demonstrators, News, Tools

    Modelling the interplay between Performance, Energy and Reliability (PER) in multi- and many-core systems has been one of the main objectives within the PRiME project. This has led to the development of the idea to represent PER interplay as a region of reliable operation in the throughput-voltage space. This region is defined by platform-specific constraints […]
