Faculty host: Ayse Coskun Sébastien Le Beux Associate Professor University of Lyon Illuminating Many-Core Architectures with Silicon Photonic Interconnects Abstract : The move to high performance many-cores architectures requires organized high-speed communication between processors. Silicon photonic interconnects are emerging as potential contenders to solve congestion and latency issues in future computing architectures. However, the design of such highly heterogeneous system requires complex design space exploration taking into account thermal sensitivity of optical devices, BER requirements and energy/performances objectives. In this talk, I will introduce key design flow features to optimize the execution of applications onto nanophotonic interconnect based 3D multiprocessor system-on-chips (MPSoC). Biography : Sébastien Le Beux is an Associate Professor focusing on Heterogeneous and Nanoelectronics Systems Design at the Ecole Centrale de Lyon, University of Lyon. He is currently responsible for nanoprocessors research activities at the Heterogeneous System Design group of the Lyon Institute of Nanotechnology. He obtained his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Sciences and Technology of Lille in 2007. He went on to become a postdoctoral researcher at Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal, Canada, 2008-2010. His research interests include design methods for emerging (nano)technologies and embedded systems, including silicon photonic interconnect and reconfigurable architectures. He has authored or co-authored over 70 scientific publications including journal articles, book chapters, patent and conference papers and held pivotal positions in the organization of various international conferences. He served as the general chair of the OPTICS workshop.
