Paving the way towards a highly energy-efficient and highly integrated compute node for the Exascale revolution: the ExaNoDe approach

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Power consumption and high compute density are
the key factors to be considered when building a compute node
for the upcoming Exascale revolution. Current architectural
design and manufacturing technologies are not able to provide
the requested level of density and power efficiency to realise
an operational Exascale machine. A disruptive change in the
hardware design and integration process is needed in order
to cope with the requirements of this forthcoming computing
target. This paper presents the ExaNoDe H2020 research project
aiming to design a highly energy efficient and highly integrated
heterogeneous compute node targeting Exascale level computing,
mixing low-power processors, heterogeneous co-processors and
using advanced hardware integration technologies with the novel
UNIMEM Global Address Space memory system.
