End-to-End Experimental Systems Research

This technical report contains sections excerpted from the proposal which the departments of Computer Science and the Electrical Engineering submitted to the National Science Foundation Institutional Infrastructure Program in December 1989. That proposal was subsequently adapted somewhat and was awarded over $5.5M including matching funds from the Commonwealth of Virginia and the University of Virginia. In this proposal we ask for support ~ - primarily equipment, students and staff - - to enhance the capabilitites that will permit the joint departments to do hardware and software experiments not now possible or feasible. We need the capability to perform experiments more rapidly, in more depth and with greater quality and fidelity. Experimental capabilities include the design of custom chips, integration of custom and off-the-shelf hardware into board systems, the creation of software systems and applications, the exercise and instrumentation of the prototype software on the prototype hardware. The collective faculty involved strongly believe that the quality of computer research can frequently be enhanced if experiments can be realized to help test the scientific hypothesis under investigation.
