Computing Fabric for high performance Applications (COBRA)
The objective of COBRA is to develop and experiment an open, flexible and high performance platform by substituting heterogeneous mixed HW/SW specialized sub-systems by an application specific processor array. This massively parallel computing fabric will also improve manufacturability and energy efficiency of new Systems On Chip, due to its design regularity, while at the same time maximising flexibility by allowing software product derivatives to be generated. Software product derivatives will reduce development and manufacturing costs as well as Time-to-market when compared with hardwired alternatives.
