  • GPU-accelerated language and communication support by FPGA

    Boku T., Hanawa T., Murai H., Nakao M., Miki Y., Amano H., Umemura M., Advanced Software Technologies for Post-Peta Scale Computing: The Japanese Post-Peta CREST Research Project, 2018.12

     View Summary

    Although the GPU is one of the most successfully used accelerating devices for HPC, there are several issues when it is used for large-scale parallel systems. To describe real applications on GPU-ready parallel systems, we need to combine different paradigms of programming such as CUDA/OpenCL, MPI, and OpenMP for advanced platforms. In the hardware configuration, inter-GPU communication through PCIe channel and support by CPU are required which causes large overhead to be a bottleneck of total parallel processing performance. In our project to be described in this chapter, we developed an FPGA-based platform to reduce the latency of inter-GPU communication and also a PGAS language for distributed-memory programming with accelerating devices such as GPU. Through this work, a new approach to compensate the hardware and software weakness of parallel GPU computing is provided. Moreover, FPGA technology for computation and communication acceleration is described upon astrophysical problem where GPU or CPU computation is not sufficient on performance.

  • RT-libSGM: An Implementation of a Real-time Stereo Matching System on FPGA

    Wei K., Kuno Y., Arai M., Amano H.

    ACM International Conference Proceeding Series (ACM International Conference Proceeding Series)     1 - 9 2022.06

     View Summary

    Stereo depth estimation has become an attractive topic in the computer vision field. Although various algorithms strive to optimize the speed and the precision of estimation, the energy cost of a system is also an essential metric for an embedded system. Among these various algorithms, Semi-Global Matching (SGM) has been a popular choice for some real-world applications because of its accuracy-and-speed balance. However, its power consumption makes it difficult to be applied to an embedded system. Thus, we propose a robust stereo matching system, RT-libSGM, working on the Xilinx Field-programmable gate array (FPGA) platforms. The dedicated design of each module optimizes the speed of the entire system while ensuring the flexibility of the system structure. Through an evaluation running on a Zynq FPGA board called M-KUBOS, RT-libSGM achieves state-of-the-art performance with lower power consumption. Compared with the original design (libSGM), when working on the Tegra X2 GPU, RT-libSGM runs 2 × faster at a lower energy cost.

  • Mapping-Aware Kernel Partitioning Method for CGRAs Assisted by Deep Learning

    Kojima T., Ohwada A., Amano H.

    IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems)  33 ( 5 ) 1213 - 1230 2022.05

    ISSN  10459219

     View Summary

    Coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures (CGRAs) provide high energy efficiency with word-level programmability rather than bit-level ones such as FPGAs. The coarser reconfigurability brings about higher energy efficiency and reduces the complexity of compiler tasks compared to the FPGAs. However, application mapping process for CGRAs is still time-consuming. When the compiler tries to map a large and complicated application data-flow-graph(DFG) onto the reconfigurable fabric, it tends to result in inefficient resource use or to fail in mapping. In case of failure, the compiler must divide it into several sub-DFGs and goes back to the same flow. In this work, we propose a novel partitioning method based on a genetic algorithm to eliminate the unmappable DFGs and improve the mapping quality. In order not to generate unmappable sub-DFGs, we also propose an estimation model which predicts the mappability and resource requirements using a DGCNN (Deep Graph Convolutional Neural Network). The genetic algorithm with this model can seek the most resource-efficient mapping without the back-end mapping process. Our model can predict the mappability with more than 98% accuracy and resource usage with a negligible error for two studied CGRAs. Besides, the proposed partitioning method demonstrates 53-75% of memory saving, 1.28-1.39x higher throughput, and better mapping quality over three comparative approaches.

  • A traffic-aware memory-cube network using bypassing

     View Summary

    Three-dimensional stack memory which provides both high-bandwidth access and large capacity is a promising technology for next-generation computer systems. While a large number of memory cubes increase the aggregate memory capacity, the communication latency and power consumption increase significantly owing to its low-radix large-diameter packet network. In this context, we propose a memory-cube network called Diagonal Memory Network (DMN). A diagonal network topology, its floor layout, and its lightweight router were designed for low-latency and low-voltage memory-read communication. DMN routing efficiently avoids deadlocks of packets, although it allows each packet transmitted to a processor to use both bypassing and original datapaths. Our evaluation results show that the DMN router decreases the use of hardware resources by more than 31% compared with a conventional virtual channel router. The DMN router reduces energy consumption by 13% and 67% to transit a packet along with the original datapath and bypassing datapath, respectively. Furthermore, using flit-level discrete event simulation, a DMN topology achieves high throughput and latency that is lower than that of existing network topologies using conventional packet routers.

  • Body Bias Control on a CGRA based on Convex Optimization

    Kojima T., Okuhara H., Kondo M., Amano H.

    25th IEEE Symposium on Low-Power and High-Speed Chips and Systems, COOL Chips 2022 - Proceedings (25th IEEE Symposium on Low-Power and High-Speed Chips and Systems, COOL Chips 2022 - Proceedings)   2022

     View Summary

    Body biasing is one of the critical techniques to realize more energy-efficient computing with reconfigurable devices, such as Coarse-Grained Reconfigurable Architectures (CGRAs). Its benefit depends on the control granularity, whereas fine-grained control makes it challenging to find the best body bias voltage for each domain due to the complexity of the optimization problem. This work reformulates the optimization problem and introduces continuous relaxation to solve it faster than previous work. Experimental result shows the proposed method can solve the problem within 0.5 sec for all benchmarks in any conditions and demonstrates up to 5.65x speed-up compared to the previous method with negligible loss of accuracy.

  • An efficient compilation of coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures utilizing pre-optimized sub-graph mappings

    Ohwada A., Kojima T., Amano H.

    Proceedings - 30th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Processing, PDP 2022 (Proceedings - 30th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Processing, PDP 2022)     1 - 9 2022

     View Summary

    In recent years, IoT devices have become widespread, and energy-efficient coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures (CGRAs) have attracted attention. CGRAs comprise several processing units called processing elements (PEs) arranged in a two-dimensional array. The operations of PEs and the interconnections between them are adaptively changed depending on a target application, and this contributes to a higher energy efficiency compared to general-purpose processors. The application kernel executed on CGRAs is represented as a data flow graph (DFG), and CGRA compilers are responsible for mapping the DFG onto the PE array. Thus, mapping algorithms significantly influence the performance and power efficiency of CGRAs as well as the compile time. This paper proposes POCOCO, a compiler framework for CGRAs that can use pre-optimized subgraph mappings. This contributes to reducing the compiler optimization task. To leverage the subgraph mappings, we extend an existing mapping method based on a genetic algorithm. Experiments on three architectures demonstrated that the proposed method reduces the optimization time by 48%, on an average, for the best case of the three architectures.
