Complier Research Funded

Drs. Steve Carr and Zhenlin Wang were recently awarded $18,215 from LSI Corporation in support of their research. Their project is entitled “Compiler Evaluation for the PowerPC 476 Processor”. The goal of this project is to assess the quality of code generated by the GCC PowerPC 476 compiler and to look for potential missed opportunities to apply 476-specific optimizations.

The project will fund 2 graduate students and is expected to take approximately 3 months.
