The definition for M-SPACE is as follows:
Modular: Reconfigurable “building blocks” for design speed/agility
Scalable: Linear scaling of multi and single-thread performance
Portable: Energy-efficiency for increased mobility/portability
Accessible: Ongoing commitment to open innovation
Compatible: Backward compatibility and ease of upgrade
Efficient: Optimal on-chip and system level I/O efficiency
