Abstract:Cyber-physical Systems (CPS), implemented in a broad range of applications ranging from critical systems like automotive to smartphones, are expected to cope with an increasing demand of functional and temporal constraints of the applications, with the corresponding growth in processing capabilities, claiming for high performance computing and low power consumption.
Recent trends in the design of CPS propose heterogeneous systems as efficient processors to improve performance and power/energy/termal efficiency. Different heterogeneity design choices have been explored ranging from hybrid CPU/GPU architectures that deal with parallel performance, to Systems-onChip(SoCs) with specialized hardware accelerators, to systems with different core types implementing distinct Instruction-Set Architectures (ISA) as single-ISA heterogeneous multi-cores with different core types, or multi-ISA heterogeneous multi-cores in which different core types implement different ISAs.
To take advantage of the heterogeneous architectures, important
challenges are to be studied related to new programming models
and compilers, hardware/software interface, run-time support, effi-
cient load balancing and scheduling policies, with a resulting substantial performance improvement. Likewise, the system designer
must trade off between different design parameters such as performance, timing, reliability, code portability and programmability
and power consumption, which is a major concern in current architecture designs. This special issue is a collection of a number of outstanding papers describing the latest developments and trends
on heterogeneous architectures for cyber-physical systems.
