Profile Summary

Our research group is investigating future processors and systems that provide high performance, power efficiency and high reliability. This research  is centered around a re-definition of architectural layering through Co-Designed Virtual Machines (VMs).  These VMs contain a layer of implementation dependent software that is developed concurrently  with the hardware. The VM software layer resides in a section of physical main memory  that is hidden from all conventional software.
