Abstract

In this paper we assess the use of High Performance Computing in Design Space Exploration of a complex highly parameterized Very Long Instruction Word based System-on-a-Chip platform. Experiments show that the conventional belief of linear decrease in exploration time as the number of available processors increases is discredited starting from a relatively low number of processors mainly due to communication overhead and I/O bottleneck.
