Student Projects: 2001

 Index 2001  Student Projects  NetOS 

If you are interested in attempting any of these projects then in the first instance contact Ian Pratt or Tim Harris, unless advised otherwise in the description.

We will be holding a meeting to describe these proposals in more detail at 2pm, Monday June 18th in TP4.

Simulation of active memories: some current research in the Systems Research Group is investigating possible designs and uses for active memories. An active memory extends conventional storage space with some form of processing functionality - e.g. to create a hybrid chip combining DRAM and a simple processor core or a more limited FPGA. These are often proposed for tasks which can then be performed `close' to the data, thereby reducing the traffic through the caches and data bus and offloading processing from the main CPU.

This project proposes building a simulator to investigate the performance of different configurations of active memory - e.g. how capable the processors should be or how much memory needs to be combined with each processor.
