Former Projects at UC Berkeley

Matthias Gries, post-doc, CAD group, 2002 to 2004

I was a member of the Mescal project: Modern Embedded Systems: Compilers, Architectures, and Languages

See also class 290a and the Mescal page at UC Berkeley.

I worked on methods for systematically exploring the design space of network processors. This was a continuation of the network calculus based work at ETH Zurich and finally resulted in a survey article on design space exploration in Elsevier's VLSI journal at the end of 2004.

I also contributed to the Architecture Development System Tipi where I worked on the intuitive representation of operations to ease the definition of Instruction Set Architectures for ASIPs (screenshot). We published a book on the Mescal methodology for ASIP design in 2005.
