    Generating and Evaluating Application-Specific Hardware Extensions

    Modern platform-based design involves the application-specific extension of embedded processors to t customer requirements. To accomplish this task, the possibilities offered by recent custom/extensible processors for tuning their instruction set and micro-architecture to the applications of interest have to be exploited. A significant factor often determining the success of this...

    IEEE 802.11aa: Improvements on Video Transmission Over Wireless LANs

    Transmitting multimedia streams over IEEE 802.11 Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) with high performance and reliability is a challenging task. In this paper, the authors study the basic problems that video transmission encounters in wireless LANs and they present some of the proposed solutions. In particular, they will outline the...

    Automated Synthesis of FSMD-Based Accelerators for Hardware Compilation

    The annual increase of chip complexity is 58%, while human designer's productivity increase is limited to 21%1. A drastic increase in designer productivity is only possible through the adoption of methodologies and tools that raise the design abstraction level, ingeniously hiding low-level, time-consuming, error-prone details. EDA methodologies as High-Level Synthesis...

    Dynamic Operation of Flexi-Grid OFDM-Based Networks

    The abundance of core network fiber capacity presents an excellent opportunity for handling the continuously growing core traffic, which remains unexplored due to the fixed transmission grid imposed on Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) by the Non-Return to Zero Modulation Format (MF). Flexi-grid transmission exploits the "Void" fiber bandwidth, especially with...

    Retry Loss Models Supporting Elastic Traffic

    The authors consider a single-link loss system of fixed capacity, which accommodates K service-classes of Poisson traffic with elastic bandwidth-per-call requirements. When a new call cannot be accepted in the system with its peak-bandwidth requirement, it can retry one or more times (single and multi-retry loss model, respectively) to be...

    NAC: A Lightweight Intermediate Representation for ASIP Compilers

    ASIP processors are tuned for optimized mapping of narrow application sets in heterogeneous platforms. Their successful development relies on compiler-based design space exploration. The careful design of the compiler intermediate language is a necessity, due to its dual purpose as both the program representation and an abstract target machine. Its...

    Efficient Hardware Looping Units for FPGAs

    Looping operations impose a significant bottleneck to achieving better computational efficiency for embedded applications. To confront this problem in embedded computation either in the form of programmable processors or FSMD (Finite-State Machine with Datapath) architectures, the use of customized loop controllers has been suggested. In this paper, a thorough examination...

    Innovation And Diversity In A Dynamic Knowledge Network

    In this paper the authors examine the evolution of network formation. They present a model in which companies in an industry can innovate alone or in alliance with others. Alliance formation is based on the cognitive distance of companies: if two companies form an alliance, their probability of success in...

    The Academic Entrepreneur: Myth Or Reality For Increased Regional Growth In Europe?

    Knowledge flows from universities to the regional economy can take different forms ranging from formal research collaborations to consultancy and informal personal connections. One of the knowledge communication channels drawing substantial interest of both researchers and regional policy makers is academic spin-off firm formation. According to the concept of the...

    Essay On International Financial Crisis And Endogenous Growth Theory

    This paper reviews endogenous growth theories in the light of the modern reality. It seems that economies which are similar in technologies and preferences are expected to converge to the same level of per capita income. The question "How are repetitions of financial crisis best predicted?" is still not answered....

    Improving Performance on Mobile Ad Hoc Networks by Using Proxy Service

    In this paper, the authors present the role of proxy service in a MANET environment. MANET is specifically characterized by high mobility of network nodes and frequent changes of direct visibility. High dynamicity affects the design and implementation of distributed applications by significantly increasing their complexity, to consider not only...

    Compiling C-Like Languages to FPGA Hardware: Some Novel Approaches Targeting Data Memory Organisation

    In this paper the authors describe their approaches to raise the level of abstraction at which hardware suitable for accelerating computationally-intensive applications can be specified. Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are becoming adopted as a computational platform by the high-performance computing community, but there are challenges to extract maximum performance from...

    Data Reuse Exploration under Area Constraints for Low Power Reconfigurable Systems

    Contemporary FPGA-based reconfigurable systems have been widely used to implement computation-intensive applications. In these applications data transfer and storage consume a large part of the system energy. Exploiting data reuse can introduce significant power savings, but also introduces extra requirement for on-chip memory. To aid data reuse design exploration, the...
