Software Research

Units and Dimensions: SimCon is carrying out research on automatic identification and checking of the physical units and dimensions of the variables in a Fortran program. The tools form part of FPT, and preliminary releases have been tested by CSC at Airbus Filton. An important issue is that the user does not need to specify the units and dimensions of the variables in the program. FPT automatically determines the relationships between the units of different variables, and attempts to find inconsistencies or to show that none exist.


FPGA and Parallel Programming: Research on automatic fine-grain parallel programming of FPGAs and multi-core systems is being carried out in collaboration with The University of Cape Town and Edge Hill University. Algorithms for parallelisation and for fixed-point scaled fraction programming, first developed for the AD10 simulation computer, are applied to FPGAs.
