FPGA Forum's price for best master thesis was won by Leif Tore Rusten and Gunnar Inge Sortland. The master thesis was supervised by Associate Professor Magnus Jahre, and co-supervised by Associate Professor Gunnar Tufte from our department.
In the winning thesis, Implementing a Heterogeneous Multi-Core Prototype in an FPGA, Rusten and Sortland implemented a heterogeneous multi-core processor complete with two processor core implementations, a mesh interconnect and off-chip interfaces.
Their research has also contributed to the IME Energy Efficient Computer Systems (EECS) strategic research area.
