FPGA Dynamic Power Minimization through Placement and Routing Constraints
Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are pervasive in embedded systems requiring low-power utilization. A novel power optimization methodology for reducing the dynamic power consumed by the routing of FPGA circuits by ...
Comparison of Methodologies to Estimate Intake Dose for Exposure to Soil Contaminants
(Hindawi Publishing Corp, 2008-07-21)
It has been suggested that probabilistic approaches would provide more realistic estimates for human intake dose from exposure to soil contaminants than the commonly-used standard deterministic method. The objective of ...
Exploiting Process Locality of Reference in RTL Simulation Acceleration
With the increased size and complexity of digital designs, the time required to simulate them has also increased. Traditional simulation accelerators utilize FPGAs in a static configuration, but this paper presents an ...
Dynamic Hardware Development
Applications that leverage the dynamic partial reconfigurability of modern FPGAs arefew, owing in large part to the lack of suitable tools and techniques to create them. Whilethe trend in digital design is towards higher ...
Numerical Analysis of Flow Field in Generator End-Winding Region
Cooling in an end-winding region of a high-powered, large-sized generator still remains a challenge today because of a number of factors: a larger number of parts/components with irregular geometries, complexity in cooling ...
A Fast CT Reconstruction Scheme for a General Multi-Core PC
Expensive computational cost is a severe limitation in CT reconstruction for clinical applications that need real-time feedback. A primary example is bolus-chasing computed tomography (CT) angiography (BCA) that we have ...
A General Local Reconstruction Approach Based on a Truncated Hilbert Transform
Exact image reconstruction from limited projection data has been a central topic in the computed tomography (CT) field. In this paper, we present a general region-of-interest/volume-of-interest (ROI/VOI) reconstruction ...
Expression Divergence of Tandemly Arrayed Genes in Human and Mouse
Tandemly arrayed genes (TAGs) account for about one third of the duplicated genes in eukaryotic genomes, yet there has not been any systematic study of their gene expression patterns. Taking advantage of recently published ...
Characterization of Expressed Sequence Tags From a Gallus gallus Pineal Gland cDNA Library
The pineal gland is the circadian oscillator in the chicken, regulating diversefunctions ranging from egg laying to feeding. Here, we describe the isolation andcharacterization of expressed sequence tags (ESTs) isolated ...
