Growing architectural complexity and stringent time-to-market constraints suggest the need to move architecture design beyond parametric exploration to structural exploration. ArchExplorer is a Web-based permanent and open design-space exploration framework that lets researchers compare their designs against others. The authors demonstrate their approach by exploring the design space of an on-chip memory subsystem and a multicore processor.
