The PRiME Project Value Proposition

Power-efficient, Reliable, many-core Embedded systems

PRiME Project

PRiME is a £5.6m EPSRC-funded programme involving researchers from four UK universities in collaboration with five companies and seven international visiting experts. The vision is to enable the sustainability of many-core scaling by addressing the challenges of power consumption and the reliability of future high-performance embedded systems utilising many-core processors.

Novel features of PRiME

Technology roadmap

Collaboration opportunity

We are currently three years into the five year project. We are interested to hear from companies that are interested in PRiME research, either as potential users of the technologies developed or with something to contribute. In particular, we are looking to build relationships with companies that can provide input on current and likely future applications of many-core systems. We want to identify these in order to direct research and to develop industrially relevant technology demonstrators.
