Loki Project - shape-shifting many-core
This project builds upon our experience of designing on-chip networks. The aim is to explore a broad range of interesting massively-parallel single-chip architectures that place the network at the heart of their design. Our simple cores are far more deeply interconnected to each other than traditional designs, sharing some similarities to FPGAs. The network is also free to carry both instructions and data between cores allowing individual cores to be exploited in a variety of interesting ways. We are pursuing work at both the architecture and circuit levels, together with the development of new compilation tools.
