Yeung Receives National Science Foundation Award
Professor Donald Yeung (ECE/CS) is the principal investigator for a new National Science Foundation award for his project entitled, "Parallelization and Memory System Techniques for Effectively Utilizing Heterogeneous Microprocessors."
The three-year, $400K grant is being funded through the National Science Foundation’s Software and Hardware Foundations (SHF) program within the Division of Computing and Communication Foundations (CCF).
Major research directions include new parallelization techniques for making use of both CPUs and GPUs simultaneously, new cache coherence mechanisms to facilitate bulk producer-consumer communication between different types of cores, and adaptive memory address mapping schemes to support both CPU and GPU memory access patterns efficiently.
