FSU Department of Computer Science Professor David Whalley has been awarded a new NSF/Intel grant for his project “Dependent ILP: Dynamic Hoisting and Eager Scheduling of Dependent Instructions.” The project is a collaborative effort between FSU and a colleague from Michigan Technological University. The aim of the project is to combine a traditional superscalar processor architecture with a dataflow style pipeline that makes efficient early fetching and dispatching of dependent instructions possible. The award includes funding for FSU in the amount of $220,000.
