Abstract:In this thesis we also present the compiler techniques for superthreaded processors. Many existing compiler techniques used in traditional parallelizing compilers for multiprocessors as well as some specific compiler techniques for superthreaded processors are needed for generating superthreaded codes and enhancing parallelism between threads. We evaluate the performance of the superthreaded architecture with a trace-driven, cycle-by-cycle superthreaded processor simulator by using codes transformed by hand and codes generated by our superthreading compiler prototype. The simulation results show that a superthreaded processor can achieve good performance by exploiting both thread-level and instruction-level parallelism in programs.
