Multicore World 2019
Feb 12, 2019 - Feb 14, 2019 - Wellington, New Zealand
Netronome's Nic Viljoen, Associate Director of Software Engineering, and Gavin Stark, Chief Scientist, will be presenting, "Flexible and Scalable Domain-Specific Architectures," at Multicore World 2019.
This talk will first introduce the concept of a domain-specific architecture (DSA) using the Netronome Flow Processor (NFP) as an example, it will cover the motivation, design and implementation. They will explore how this architecture’s flexibility has been leveraged in the past to handle unique platforms such as the Facebook Yosemite v2 Platform. Finally approaches for designing flexible chipsets in the future will be explored, including the value of system wide computational modeling.
