UMIC is a research cluster established under the German Federal and State Government Excellence Initiative. In its focus are Ultra high-speed Mobile Information and Communication systems (UMIC) supporting the demands of future mobile applications and systems. Being an academic research centre with strong links to wireless industry and mobile network operators, activities cover research on basics concepts and new paradigms, on key solutions and tools, the development of prototypes and demonstrators, and the technology transfer to industry. In this year's DATE exhibition UMIC will present the "MPSoC Application Programming Studio" (MAPS), a compilation framework for heterogeneous, embedded multi-core systems. It provides a tool-suite to tackle the MPSoC programming challenge, including a lightweight C extension to express parallelism, efficient mapping and scheduling as well as retargetable code generation for several backends (virtual platforms or real silicon).
