Section: Contracts and Grants with Industry
This contract was initiated by Texas Instruments because of a need they felt to better understand the theory of Latency-insensitive systems, its connexions with synchronous semantics, and more generally GALS description models. We are conducted an extensive bibliographic survey, checking all along the potential (good or bad) implications for efficient SoC modeling, according to our previous experience gathered on the field. In the second year we have focused on the survey of off-line scheduling techniques for latency equalization. In the future we intent to include our partners from Columbia University into this activity, through the INRIA joint-team programme.
