Integrated Development of Parallelizing and Power Reducing Compiler and Multicore Architecture for HPC to Embedded Applications

High performance, low power and easy and efficient parallel software development are key issues for next generation multicore processor systems for embedded application including self-drivng automobile, medical and IoT to scientific applications. This talk introdeces the OSCAR (Optimally Scheduled Advanced MultiprocessoR) multigrain parallelizing and power reducing compiler, OSCAR multicore architecture with vector accelerator desiged to support the compiler optimization and execution performance and power redction using DVFS and power gating of the automibile, medical, multimedia and scientific applications on various multicores including Intel, IBM, Fujitsu, Hitachi, Tilera, ARM, and Renesas.
