In the near future, improvements in semiconductor technology will allow thousands of resources to be implementable on chip. However, a limitation remains for both single large-scale processors and many-core processors. For single processors, this limitation arises from their design complexity, and regarding the many-core processors, an application is partitioned to several tasks and these partitioned tasks are mapped onto the cores. In this paper, the authors propose a dynamic Chip Multi-Processor (CMP) model that consists of simple modules and does not require the application partitioning since the scale of the processor is dynamically variable, looking like up or down scale on demand.
