Application Prototyping and 3D Manycore

WP5 will address the 3D manycore virtual prototype, first by providing an existing 2D-based manycore virtual prototype, and then extend it into a 3Dmanycore virtual prototype, according to the results of WP1. This workpackage will validate the new 3D Solutions using complex applications requiring massive computing: H264 video encoding and Hamilton demosaicing, a compute intensive imaging algorithm. These applications will be used to assess the PRO3D high-level programming model, and then executes it on the 3D manycore extended virtual prototype to quantify the benefits of 3D.
