October 19th, 2011 Comments off

Hi ECE students at UNIST~

고성능 저전력 컴퓨팅 랩(Energy-Efficient Computing Lab)에서는 UNIST ECE 학부 2~3학년 학생들과 함께 다음 주제들에 대해 심도있게 공부해보고자 합니다. 뜻있는 학생들은 신청해주세요.

  • assembly language (ARM)
  • computer architecture (server/mobile)
  • compiler
  • virtual machine (Java, Dalvik)
  • FPGA and reconfigurable computing
  • other emerging computing technologies

CSE311 (Computer Organization) 과목을 못다 공부해서 미련이 남거나, 또는 미리 공부해보고 싶은 학생들도 환영입니다. 아니면 컴파일러나 Java Virtual Machine에 대해서 관심이 있는 학생들도 좋구요. 인턴쉽과 병행해도 되고 그와는 상관없이 그냥 부담없이 와도 됩니다.

U-WURF successfully completed

January 28th, 2011 Comments off

Two U-WURF students have visited HPC lab for one month. Mr. Ahn explored ASIP (Application-Specific Instruction-set Processor) design approach to accelerate the speed of software-based solutions. Mr. Lee demonstrated the power of GPU computing for general computing (so called GPGPU) for two applications, ie., matrix multiplication and genetic algorithm. Congrats for successfully completing the U-WURF program. Some of the details of their research can be found in the HPC wiki.
