When: Tuesday, October 7, 2008
Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: 205/206 EBU2


In this talk, first a brief overview of multicore architectures is discussed and one potential solution based on Network-on-Chip (NoC) technology is presented. Next, the critical issue of homogeneous versus heterogeneous processing nodes for the future multicore architectures is analyzed. Finally, areas that require further research and development are identified.
