Multicube Explorer is a design space exploration tool for supporting platform-based design. It allows a fast optimization of parameterized system architecture towards a set of objective functions (e.g., energy, delay and area), by interacting with a system-level simulator. Multicube Explorer provides a set of innovative sampling and optimization techniques to help finding the best objective function trade-offs. It also provides an open XML interface for supporting new platforms/architectures.
