Adaptability: the Key for Future Embedded Systems


Abstract: Heterogeneous embedded require high performance, while facing the challenge of sensitiviness to fabrication defects and energy efficiency. Adaptive behavior might be the solution for these interrelated issues. Several dynamic techniques, such as binary translation, core allocation in a MPSOC and reconfigurable systems are reviewed, so that one can sustain binary compatibility and trade performance by energy and/or fault tolerance. The tutorial discusses how one can combine several techniques together, and how could they be applied to future embedded systems.
