Non-Stalling CounterFlow Architecture
The counterflow pipeline concept was originated by Sproull et al.[1] to demonstrate the concept of asynchronous circuits. This architecture relies on distributed decision making an...

Hardware for Speculative Run-Time Parallelization in Distributed Shared-Memory Multiprocessors
Run-time parallelization is often the only way to execute the code in parallel when data dependence information is incomplete at compile time. This situation is common in many imp...

The Potential for Using Thread-Level Data Speculation to Facilitate Automatic Parallelization
As we look to the future, and the prospect of a billion transistors on a chip, it seems inevitable that microprocessors will exploit having multiple parallel threads. To achieve t...

Address Translation Mechanisms In Network Interfaces
Good network hardware performance is often squandered by overheads for accessing the network interface (NI) within a host. NIs that support user-level messaging avoid frequent ope...
