Abstract:

This report is the final technical report for the project PCA RAW Fabric Architectural Prototyping, Demonstration, and Evaluation. This project successfully built and demonstrated a Raw fabric system containing 4 Raw chips, with 3 streaming fabric boards. In addition to the Raw fabric hardware, the project also developed and demonstrated StreamIt a language and compiler specifically designed for embedded, high performance stream computing on PCA architectures such as Raw. The project also implemented, analyzed and distributed a new PCA benchmark suite called Versabench and a PCA performance metric called Versatility.
