Enabling Effective Optimization Techniques for Heterogeneous System

Abstract: Heterogeneous systems that couple CPUs withrammable Gate Array In this talk, I will first present the on-chip storage and multitasking optimization techniques for GPUs. The proposed techniques leverage on compile-time and run-time techniques to improve the cache performance, register utilization, pipeline utilization and overall performance. For the second half of the talk, I will present performance modeling and optimization techniques for FPGAs based on OpenCL programming model.
