Verhage, A.A. (author)
Technolution B.V. is developing a custom Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC)-V based softcore for implementation on a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). Previously, the softcore used the memory residing on the FPGA only, which is very limited in capacity and limits scaling. To solve this problem, a connection is made from the softcore to...

The trend of increasing performance by parallelism is followed by the adoption of heterogeneous systems. In order to allow more fine-tuned balancing between used thread- and instruction level parallelism, the heterogeneous ρ-VEX platform was developed. Pipelining has been a part of microprocessor development for decades to increase throughput of...

As predicted by Gordon E. Moore in 1975, the number of transistors has doubled every two years over the last decades. This technology scaling led to a higher performance of Integrated Circuits (ICs) like processors, but have also made these devices more susceptible to Single Event Effects (SEEs). SEEs are caused by transistors changing state...

Yousaf, M.M. (author)
Autonomous mobile robots generally have limited computational power on-board, and they have to perform their tasks in real-time in order to interact with their surroundings effectively. Therefore, there is a need to utilize the available computational capabilities efficiently. The ρ-VEX is a run-time reconfigurable VLIW processor. This unique...

Quantum computers hold the promise to solve problems that are intractable to classical computers. Since qubits suffer from extremely short lifetime and unreliable operations, Quantum Error Correction (QEC) forms a vital part of a quantum computer to enable Fault-Tolerant quantum computing. The usage of a Pauli frame can relax the time...

Van Straten, J. (author)
This thesis describes the design and implementation of a VLIW processor and associated caches based on the ρ-VEX concept. An ρ-VEX processor must be dynamically (runtime) reconfigurable to behave as a single large processor, two medium-sized processors, or four small processors. This allows a scheduler to optimize for energy and/or performance...

The ?-VEX is a run-time reconfigurable Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) processor. This unique processor allows separation of its issue lanes to form independently operating processing cores. Switching between these configuration during run-time allows optimizing the platform for the task(s) it is performing. Porting an Operating System (OS) to...

As semiconductor devices shrink further, the effects of process variation become more and more pronounced. They negatively impact the speed and power consumption of Integrated Circuits (ICs). Traditionally, a worst-case based design methodology is used to compensate for their potential impact. For modern technology this method means an increased...
