Intel® Composer XE 2013 SP1 includes Intel® Compiler 14.0 among other components. The list below summarizes the features and enhancement highlights in Intel® Compiler 14.0 that are pertinent to those programming for Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors:
The task of constructing of identifying sequences for synchronous sequential circuits is one of the central problems in the design process. Genetic algorithm (GA) is one of the possible solutions of this task. It uses simulation of digital circuits to value the quality of potential solutions. Due this fact GA of input sequences generation are very slowly. In this paper we propose parallel versions of GA of this type that adapted for multi-core workstations. In our approach we organize several parallel threads.
Fault simulation for sequential circuits numbers among the highly compute-intensive tasks in the integrated circuit design process. In this paper we propose a new parallel fault simulation algorithm for multi-core workstations with common memory. We use dynamic fault grouping for each input test vector. Also each formed group is simulated in separate thread. Also we study the scalability of proposed algorithm. We report results for the ISCAS-89 benchmark circuits obtained on Intel’s MTL with 12 computational cores.
