The Compiler and Architecture Research Group (CAR) was formerly part of Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, the central research lab for the Hewlett-Packard Company. The group spun off from Hewlett-Packard a few years ago and started a company called Synfora.
CAR's contribution to Trimaran includes Elcor, the research compiler infra-structure that embodies much of the research and engineering that was performed in the area of ILP. Elcor constitutes most of the machine-dependent parts of Trimaran.
CAR's Trimaran-related activities, under the leadership of Vinod Kathail, incorporated the extended and extensive efforts of Santosh Abraham, Sadun Anik, Shail Aditya, Richard Johnson, Scott Mahlke, Bob Rau, Mike Schlansker, Rob Schreiber, and Greg Snider, as well as a number of Research Interns.
