Ing., Ph.D. Generating phase of the Reconfigurable Compiler As you probably know, a compiler comprises from a language depending analytic part (front-end) which is producing a revised internal representation and a following part (back-end) which is generating a result object code or an assembler code. The methodology for the front-end is already solved from the practical point of view many years and it is thought on a bachelor level of study. There are some generators of the analytical compiler part which are mainly based on the LALR grammars. These ones are able to generate the analytical part and a context depending part is easy built according to a known methodology. For some branches we use moreover the C/C++ language only. The front-end of such compiler is freely down able on the net. When we sufficiently design the internal representation, the front-end generator is depending on the input language only. Such internal representations are existing. The definition language pro the generator is mainly an attribute grammar. Real practical problems occur in the back-end generation. An amount of processor architectures is high and moreover is permanently increasing in connection with mobile phones, and other embedded systems, Internet of Things, medical devices, automotive devices etc. One of the main reasons is a collision of using of available processors with already developed compilers and simultaneously large energy consumption. These designed devices cannot use such processors by reasons of energy consumption and often also of a license price. So, the number and variety of the processor architecture is quickly increasing. It will be sufficient to keep at disposition for the back-end a similar generating tool like for the front-end. In such way, we can to a great extend to speed-up a transport of applications (written mainly in the C language) on the new processors. The back-end generating is a relatively new topic which is not taught in the university curricula (at FIT as well). What we should possess: an internal representation as a input of the transformation, the language for the processor definition as the generator input, a suitable retargetable back-end So, we want to generate a quick and effective compiler (currently for the C language only) for different processor architectures which will be described by the definition language. What we can link to? In a frame of the Lissom group research, a reconfigurable C compiler grew. It is now a part of the Codasip Studio of the Codasip Ltd. (www.codasip.com) and also for our university. We have some experience with this research. It is sure, that we do a research on the world level which is practically requested and which is not definitely solved. There are definition languages, the internal representation, and the reconfigurable C compiler. We have developed a workable generator, but it is not sure, whether it is sufficiently effective for sufficient scale of architectures. The aim of this work is a critical evaluation of the present state of the research and methods and a design of an effective generation methodology and the generator as well. The design of a transportable reconfigurable C/C++ compiler for the VLIW processor architectures. More information verbally.

The back-end generating is a relatively new topic which is not taught in the university curricula (at FIT as well). In the back-end, a static analysis is running during a compilation. It make possible to generate a currenty optimal code which is based on information available during the compilation. But this approach is not sufficient for some architectures. Especially in the case when the number of application program sis limited (a frequent situation for more processors), it is necessary to use for the optimization also data reached after the program execution (a profil).

The micro short-circuit causes the electromagnetic interferences which are transmitted to free space or is inducted into the power supply network. In the concept of detection and localization of these failures is good to take into account following approaches: antenna measurement; detection of failures in magnetic field of motor and monitoring the current distribution of tested motor in wide frequency range. Further, there is necessary to classify influence of short-circuits and micro short-circuits in wide frequency range of electromagnetic interference. More over for this type of interference detection could be used the spectral power density of interfering signal. Keep in mind, that such measurements have to be done by normally used measuring devices e.g. low cost spectrum analyser or oscilloscope. Finally, develop and introduce simple methodology for measuring and classification of short-circuit and micro short-circuit influence in small motors. Classification methodology has to be very simple to use and have to provide clear results. The simple methodology for localization of short-circuit position have to be also developed. The precision and resolution of the proposed methodology has to be at minimum for each stage of motor winding. The design and development of simple device for micro short-circuit in small motors has to be part of whole Ph. D. project.
