CRISP: Cutting edge Reconfigurable ICs for Stream Processing

The CRISP project is a EU co-funded project, in which a single highly scalable reconfigurable system concept is developed that can be used for a wide range of streaming applications; from low-cost consumer applications to very demanding specialty applications. The project is performed by an adept consortium consisting of Recore Systems, University of Twente, Atmel Germany, Thales Netherlands, Tampere University of Technology and NXP Semiconductors. CRISP is acronym for Cutting edge Reconfigurable IC's for Stream Processing.


The CRISP (Cutting edge Reconfigurable ICs for Stream Processing) project researches optimal utilization, efficient programming and dependability of reconfigurable many-cores for streaming applications. The project is co-funded by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and has a duration of three years (2008 - 2010).

  • The CRISP project researches the design of more robust and easy-to-use embedded processors
  • The project has four central themes: Streaming Applications, General Stream Processor (GSP), Run-time Mapping and Dependability
  • The main objective of this project is to create a General Stream Processor (GSP) for tomorrow's streaming applications
  • It is only a matter of time that, for the class of streaming applications, conventional computing architectures will be replaced by reconfigurable multi-core computing platforms
