The EU-supported project Dreams has developed architecture and design tools for more powerful computing systems that can boost safety and efficiency in planes, eHealth devices, wind turbines and many more products.
The workshop will be broadly disseminated through HiPEAC and EMSIG, especially addressing all partners of the European Mixed-Criticality Cluster, consisting of the large three European research projects DREAMS, PROXIMA, CONTREX and their associated projects EMC2, CRYSTAL, SAFURE and SAFEPOWER.
The goal of DREAMS is to establish a mixed-criticality architecture based on networked multi-core chips. DREAMS will provide a hierarchical platform including both on-chip resources (e.g., processing cores, memory, NoCs) and off-chip resources.
A fine-grained mixed-criticality integration will be supported using multiple partitions within each processor core where each partition can have a separate criticality level, including the highest criticality levels for certification.
The detailed objectives are as follows:
- Architectural style and modelling methods
- Virtualization technologies for security, safety, real-time performance, integrity in networked multi-core chips
- Adaptation strategies for mixed-criticality systems
- Development methodology and tools based on model-driven engineering
- Certification and mixed-criticality product lines
- Feasibility of DREAMS architecture in real-world scenarios
- Promoting widespread adoption and community building
