Research Projects

LU Decomposition (LUD) on CUDA

This is part of the Rodinia benchmark suite for GPGPU computing.

Dark Silicon and Heterogeneous Architectures

We have developed an analytical framework, called Lumos, to explore design spaces of heterogeneous architectures composed of conventional cores, reconfigurable logic (both fine-grained such as FPGA and coarse-grained such as Dyser), and dedicated ASICs.
