HEAP - Highly Efficient Adaptive multi-Processor framework
Writing parallel code has traditionally been considered a difficult task, even when it is taken into account from the beginning. At the same time, while processor architecture tends to be relatively standard across applications within a domain, huge performance and power improvements can be achieved by tailoring the cache architecture, to the application at hand.
The HEAP project faces these challenges directly, by providing an innovative toolset that helps software developers profile and parallelize an existing sequential implementation, by exploiting top-level pipeline-style parallelism.
