Brown, A., Lester, D., Plana, L., Furber, S. and Wilson, P. (2009) SpiNNaker: the design automation problem: the design automation problem In Advances in Neuro-Information Processing. ICONIP 2008. vol. 5507, Springer Berlin Heidelberg., pp. 1049-1056.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper describes the design automation issues and techniques used to design a massively parallel processing platform - SpiNNaker - from a hardware and systems design perspective. The emphasis of this paper is addressing the key problem of resource mapping, where multiple threaded programs are to be targeted onto a hardware platform that consists of multiple ARM cores and other resources such as memory and networks. In addition, the design environment is considered to ensure that a designer can program applications onto this environment in a practical manner.
