Study and implement interoperability between gem5 and SST
SST is high performance concurrent architecture simulator (http://sst-simulator.org/). There have been previous efforts to make SST and gem5 talk to one another, but each time the two simulators have quickly diverged and the bridges have become outdated.
In this project, we aim to ensure that any bridge code between gem5 and SST strictly complies to each projects' stable APIs. This will make the bridge code more robust and sustainable.
As part of this project we will be improving and better defining the APIs in the gem5 to support other simulator integrations as well.
