Onur Mutlu laboratuvarımızı ziyaret etti

Carnegie Mellon öğretim üyesi Doç. Dr. Onur Mutlu laboratuvarımızı ziyaret etti ve Rethinking Memory System Design for Data-Intensive Computing hakkında sunum yaptı.

Abstract:
The memory system is a fundamental performance and energy bottleneck in almost all computing systems. Recent system design, application, and technology trends that require more capacity, bandwidth, efficiency, and predictability out of the memory system make it an even more important system bottleneck. At the same time, DRAM and flash technologies are experiencing difficult technology scaling challenges that make the maintenance and enhancement of their capacity, energy-efficiency, and reliability significantly more costly with conventional techniques.

In this talk, we examine some promising research and design directions to overcome challenges posed by memory scaling. Specifically, we discuss three key solution directions:
1) enabling new memory architectures, functions, interfaces, and better integration of the memory and the rest of the system,
2) designing a memory system that intelligently employs multiple memory technologies and coordinates memory and storage management using non-volatile memory technologies,
3) providing predictable performance and QoS to applications sharing the memory/storage system. If time permits, we might also briefly touch upon our ongoing related work in combating scaling challenges of NAND flash memory.

Volkan Keles Apple’da Stajda

Kasırga Lab üyesi Volkan Keleş Apple’da staja başladı. Nisan 2015 – Agustos 2015 arasında gerçekleşek staj süresince Geliştirme Teknolojileri takımında çalışmalarını sürdürecek.

İki üyemiz yüksek lisans tezlerini sundular

Kasırga üyelerinden Abdullah Giray Yağlıkçı ve Hakkı Doğaner Sümerkan yüksek lisans tezlerini başarı ile savundular ve yüksek lisanslarını tamamladılar. Abdullah Giray Yağlıkçı’nın tez konusunun başlığı: “FPGA Tabanlı Sayısal Sinyal İşleme Algoritmalarına Özelleştirilmiş Yardımcı İşlemci Tasarımı” Tezler sayfasında bulunmaktadır.

Her iki üyemiz doktora programlarına Notre Dame Üniversitesi‘nde Bilgisayar Bilimi ve Mühendisliği alanında devam edecektir.
