About the Event
We describe three processors in various stages of design
and implementation at MIT. The Execution Migration Machine (EM2) is a computation-migration-based multicore architecture that provides
speedy access to on-chip distributed cache data by either migrating
execution or via remote memory operations. A 110-core chip was taped
out in January in 45nm technology.
Srini Devadas is the Edwin Sibley Webster Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he has been on the faculty since 1988. He served as the Associate Head of EECS with responsibility for Computer Science from 2005-2011. Devadas has worked in the areas of Computer-Aided Design, testing, formal verification, compilers for embedded processors, computer architecture, computer security, and computational biology and has coauthored numerous papers in these areas and received 13 best paper awards. Devadas was elected a Fellow of the IEEE in 1999.
