The first SHMACsim progress presentation

After starting my thesis roughly 2 months ago, I've now reached a point which I could consider to be an internal milestone; a working behavioral simulation of the tile-based heterogeneous multicore architecture I've been working with.

Tomorrow (5th April) I'll be giving a status presentation to the research group I work with here at NTNU, I prepared a Prezi presentation for the occasion. It gives some brief background information on what the SHMAC is and why it's needed, why a simulator for the SHMAC is needed, and proceeds with some details about why SystemC was chosen for the simulation infrastructure and ArchC for the core generation. Contrary to the academic presentation trend there's (unfortunately) a general lack of text on the presentation itself, but it should be enough to get some ideas across :)
