Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter (m/w/d) im Kooperationsprojekt "Extending the RISC-V Instruction Set for a SmartNIC Infrastructure" am TUM Campus Heilbronn

You will work within a joint project between TUM Heilbronn and TUM Garching. The project focuses on the augmentation of the RISC-V instruction set architecture
(ISA) to facilitate network data transfers between Network Interface Cards (NICs) and computational nodes. The primary aim is to mitigate host-system overhead by introducing ISA extensions that operate seamlessly at the cache and register level, analogous to DMA/RDMA functionalities. The project follows a collaborative approach:
The Garching team traces software prerequisites and frames the required software implementations. The Heilbronn team will implement the precise extension of Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) for the Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC-V) processor to accommodate the specified enhancements.
Subsequently, both entities undergo experimental hardware simulation, implementation, and comprehensive evaluation of the newly introduced ISA extensions. This multifaceted collaboration combines software specification and hardware refinement expertise to advance the RISC-V architecture to applications in high-performance computing and efficient network communication between nodes in general.
