TOUCHMORE: Automatic Customizable Tool-Chain for Heterogeneous Multicore Platform Software Development

Official Project website is dead, list of people/lead may be incomplete

Recent trends in embedded system architectures brought a rapid shift towards multicore, heterogeneous and reconfigurable platforms. This makes chip design enormously complex and imposes a large effort for the programmers to develop their applications. For this reason, new and more efficient tools for software development are needed to ensure software productivity and time to market of new applications. In particular, the automation of the software design process starting from high level models all-the-way down to a customized and implementation on specific architectures is a key factor to increase programmer productivity.

The ToucHMore project will develop software tools that facilitate energy efficient and robust software for Heterogeneous Multicore Systems (HeMCS) with the goal to reduce the time-to-market in the design of such systems by at least 15%, as well as the cost of software design through the automation process by 20%.
