What is the overall goal of your project?

  • Design and build a supercomputer that is suitable for a set of given science and engineering application with up to 3000W power budget.
  • Optimize real-world engineering applications on the computer.
  • Benchmark and prepare a technical report.

Which grand challenge are you addressing?
Hardware/software co-design for real-world engineering applications with a limited power budget.

What is the key challenge your project is trying to solve?
Learn the latest high-performance computing technologies.

  • Learn the basics of the domain of real-world applications or even a new programming language.
  • Multidisciplinary collaboration and teamwork.
  • Timed competition against teams all over the world.

What is the impact on society your project has?
Power usage has become a critical constraint in the design of modern processors. Building power-aware computing systems via co-design is a promising approach to maximize the power-performance efficiency for next-generation high-end computing systems as well as personal computers. The engineering practice and methods obtained in this project could potentially contribute to more power efficient devices everyone uses in the future.
