Design and Programming of Reconfigurable Mesh based Many-Cores
The paradigm shift towards many-core parallelism is accompanied by two fundamental questions: how should the many processors on a single die communicate to each other and what are suitable programming models for the novel architectures? In this thesis, I tackle both questions by reviewing the reconfigurable mesh model of massively parallel computation for many-cores.

I present the design, implementation and evaluation of a many-core architecture that is based on the execution principles and communication infrastructure of the reconfigurable mesh. This work fundamentally rests on FPGA implementations which evidently show that reconfigurable mesh processors with hundreds of autonomous cores are feasible. Several case studies demonstrate the effectiveness of programming and illustrate why the reconfigurable mesh is a promising model for many-cores.
