Abstract: The aim of this project is to design and implement a processor architecture that will run large datasets on irregular graphs quickly, efficiently, and in an easily programmable fashion. Most of the studies previously presented for graph applications are only at the software or accelerator level, and the processor-level designs are different from the processor to be introduced for this project in terms of hardware cost, required architectural support, and instruction set modifications. The hardware implementation is planned to be done on a Zynq SoC-based device. Expected challenges for real platform implementation are timing considerations, coherence between hardware and software interactions, and limited hardware sources pushing the design to be carefully efficient.
