Architectures for Ubiquitous Computing

David May

University of Bristol

The rapidly falling costs of computing are giving rise to a plethora of low-cost computer based products. An increasing number of these will use scavenged power - or alternatively the product life will be determined by the battery life.

I will talk about the design of efficient low-power processors and processing systems from a computer architect's perspective; this involves languages, compilers, instruction sets and implementation techniques. The designs I will discuss integrate input-output, communications and processing; they could be used individually or could be combined to produce single-chip systems with many processors - 'Fully Programmable Processor Arrays'.
