ANR Ingénérie Numérique et Sécurité - COMPA (2011-2015)

Participants : Emmanuel Casseau, Steven Derrien, Sébastien Pillement.

COMPA (model oriented design of embedded and adaptive multiprocessor) is a project which involves Cairn, IETR (Institut d'Electronique et de Télécommunications de Rennes), Lab-STICC (University of Bretagne Sud), CAPS Entreprise, Modae Technologies and Texas Instruments. The goal of the project is to design adaptive multiprocessor embedded systems from dataflow models. Reconfigurable video coding (RVC) standard will be targeted as application use case. We will then more specifically focus on the use of the portable and platform-independent RVC-CAL language to describe the applications. We will propose transformations in order to refine, optimize and translate the application model into software and hardware components. Task mapping, instructions and processor allocation, and constrained scheduling will also be investigated for runtime execution and reconfiguration.
