Scheduling instructions with uncertain latencies in asynchronous architectures

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper addresses the problem of scheduling instructions in micronet-based asynchronous processors (MAP), in which the latencies of the instructions are not precisely known. A PTD scheduler is proposed which minimises true dependencies, and results are compared with two list schedulers — the Gibbons and Muchnick scheduler, and a variation of the Balanced scheduler. The PTD scheduler has a lower time complexity and produces better quality schedules than the other two when applied twenty-three loop- and control-intensive benchmark programs.
