I am now engaged with: Assessing a new computing system for future technologies with high error rates:
bulleta new fault tolerant computing system (Architecture, CAD tool, Computing model)
bulletQuantum Computing and architectures.

I am now engaged with: Porting Linux on VirtexII-Pro. (Xilinx ML300, it is a valuable experience, especially when we plan to port an RTOS on our TMIPS)


I am now engaged with: Design and implementation of TMIPS, a General Purpose Embedded Processor (Complete!):

bulletIntegration of Cache controllers and MMU with our SystemC simulator is released. (Oct 2006)
bullet2-4 Way set associative
bulletWrite-Through/ Write-Back policy
bulletRTL implementation of cache controllers for both Data and Instruction, and MMU is released. (Dec. 2006)
bullet2-way set associative, 8 KB, data cache with write-back, write allocate policy.
bullet2-way set associative, 16 KB, program cache with write-back, write allocate policy.
bulletOn-board verification is passed on Stratix II evaluation boards. (Dec. 2006)
bulletOn-board verification is passed  on Stratix I evaluation boards. (Jun. 2006)
bulletBoot strap mechanism done. (April. 2007)
bulletPorting eCos is in progress.
bulletConfiguration Modes done:
bullet CFG Mode 1: No Cache, Only External Memory
bullet CFG Mode 2: No Cache, Both Local External Memory
bullet CFG Mode 3: With Cache
bullet CFG Mode 3-1: Cache bypassed, CRAM used as Local RAM
bulletRegression Tests  in progress (Post synthesis, 0.13 um technology).
bulletWill be ready for tape out soon.
bulletReady for tape out. (November 2007)
