SamenvattingThe Microgrid is an architecture being developed by the Computer System Architecture group at the University of Amsterdam. Currently evaluation of this architecture uses a cycle-accurate simulator, which models the microthreaded architecture at a very low level. It becomes very slow when used for the evaluation of large and complex programs.
Therefore it was required to look for some evaluation techniques to evaluate the SVP programs at a high-level of abstraction with a higher efficiency than the cycle-accurate simulator. This master thesis was started to analyze the microthreaded architecture at a high-level and to observe the behavior of large and complex microthreaded programs.
The high-level simulator is required to support self-adaptivity for which we need fully functional programs and therefore it is tightly integrated with the SVP implementation using POSIX threads, because this implementation is the only available tool, which provides fully functional program. The result of this project is a high-level simulator of the microgrid composed of multiple microthreaded processors, which is able to analyze the behavior of microthreaded programs. The high-level simulator is verified with the cycle-accurate simulator and the behavior of both the simulators is found to be very similar using the assumptions that we have made during the development.
