Run-time adaptive resources allocation and balancing on nanoprocessors arrays

Abstract

Modern processor architectures try to exploit the different kind of parallelism that may be found even in general purpose applications. In this paper we present a new architecture based on an array of nanoprocessors that parallely and cooperatively support both Thread and Instruction level parallelism. A such architecture doesn't explicitly require any particular programming techniques since it has been developed to deal with standard sequential programs. Preliminary results on a model of the architecture show the feasibility of the proposed approach.
