CAIRN : Energy-Efficient Computing Architectures

The CAIRN project-team researches new architectures, algorithms and design methods for flexible, secure, fault-tolerant, and energy-efficient domain-specific computing architectures. Due to the performance and energy-efficiency requirements of system-on-chip (SOC), it becomes difficult to rely only on programmable processor solutions. To address this issue, we promote/advocate the use of reconfigurable hardware accelerators, which can offer higher performance at a lower energy cost, while preserving a high level of flexibility.

The team studies these systems from three angles:

  1. The design of new accelerator architectures with a focus on energy efficiency and fault tolerance.
  2. The development of their corresponding design flows (compilation and synthesis tools) to enable their automatic design from high-level specifications.
  3. Efficient management of different components in heterogeneous platforms
