Exploring new trends in computer technology, Corporaal introduces an
innovative and exciting concept: Transport Triggered Architectures (TTAs).
Unlike most traditional architectures, where programmed operations trigger
internal data transports, TTAs function through programming the data transports
themselves. As a result the new architecture alleviates bottlenecks, allows
for new code generation optimizations, and exploits hardware more efficiently.
Founded on recent research performed within the MOVE project at the
Delft University of Technology, this book evaluates the attributes of different
classes of architectures. It demonstrates how TTAs can be used as a template
for automatic generation of application specific processors and highlights
their suitability for embedded system design. Several commercial TTA implementations
have proven its concepts and advantages.
