PRiME: Power-efficient, Reliable, Many-core Embedded systems


PRiME, a £5.6m EPSRC funded five year programme (2013-2018), brings together four universities with world-leading expertise in the complementary research areas of; low-power, highly-parallel, reconfigurable and dependable computing and verified software design. Working in collaboration with five companies and seven international visiting experts, PRiME will tackle the challenge of developing the theory and practice of future high-performance embedded systems utilising many-core processors.

Future many core processors will have a wide range of applications in embedded, mobile, general and high performance computing, where energy and reliability are central requirements. PRiME seeks to exploit the transformative potential of many-core processors; our objective is to enable processor core scaling with sustainable energy consumption and reliability.
