26 Mathew, Binu K.; Davis, AlA characterization of visual feature recognitionNatural human interfaces are a key to realizing the dream of ubiquitous computing. This implies that embedded systems must be capable of sophisticated perception tasks. This paper analyzes the nature of a visual feature recognition workload.

27 Chen, Yang; Regehr, JohnA code size microbenchmark for CMotivation ? No compilers could always generate smaller code than others ? Hand-optimized code is often hard to understand ? Programmers tend to write readable code and trust compilers generate fast and compact code for them ? There is a plenty of room for improving compiler optimizations Our ...
28 Carter, JohnA collective approach to harness idle resourcesWe propose a collective approach for harnessing the idle resources (cpu, storage, and bandwidth) of nodes (e.g., home desktops) distributed across the Internet. Instead of a purely peer-to-peer (P2P) approach, we organize participating nodes to act collectively using collective managers (CMs). Pa...Idle resources; Computer nodes2008
29 Evans, John; Kessler, Robert R.A communication-ordered task graph allocation algorithmThe inherently asynchronous nature of the data flow computation model allows the exploitation of maximum parallelism in program execution??

31 Furse, Cynthia M.A comparative study on two types of transparent patch antennasProperties of optically transparent patch antennas designed from meshed conductor and transparent conductive films are studied and compared. It is shown that at S band, meshed antenna provides the best antenna efficiency for the highest transparency. It is practical to design a 90% transparent mesh...2011
32 McDirmid, Sean; Eide, Eric Norman; Hsieh, Wilson C.A comparison of Jiazzi and AspectJ for feature-wise decompositionFeature-wise decomposition is an important approach to building configurable software systems. Although there has been research on the usefulness of particular tools for featurewise decomposition, there are not many informative comparisons on the relative effectiveness of different tools. In this...Jiazzi; AspectJ; Feature-wise decomposition2004-03-23
33 Brunvand, Erik L.A comparison of modular self-timed design stylesState-machine sequencing methods in modular 2-phase and 4-phase asynchronous handshake control are compared. Design styles are discussed, and the sequencers are tested against each other using a medium-scale minicomputer test design implemented in FPGAs. Seven 4-phase sequencers are tested. In these...Self-timed; State-machine sequencing; Asynchronous handshake control1995
34 Zhang, LixinA comparison of online superpage promotion mechanismsThe amount of data that a typical translation lookaside buffer (TLB) can map has not kept pace with the growth in cache sizes and application footprints. As a result, the cost of handling TLB misses limits the performance of an increasing number of applications. The use of superpages, multiple adjac...Superpages; Translation lookaside buffer; TLB1999
35 Brunvand, Erik L.; Smith, Kent F.A comparison of self-timed design using FPGA, CMOS, and GaAs technologiesAsynchronous or self-timed systems that do not rely on U global clock to keep system components synchronized can offer significant advantages over traditional clocked circuits in a variety of applications. One advantage is that because of the separation of timing, from, functionality in these sys...1992
36 Carter, John B.A comparison of software and hardware synchronization mechanisms for distributed shared memory multiprocessorsEfficient synchronization is an essential component of parallel computing. The designers of traditional multiprocessors have included hardware support only for simple operations such as compare-and-swap and load-linked/store-conditional, while high level synchronization primitives such as locks, bar...Hardware locks1996
37 Sutherland, James ClaytonA comparison of various models in predicting ignition delay in single-particle coal combustionIn this paper, individual coal particle combustion under laminar conditions is simulated using models with various levels of complexity for the particle and gas phase chemical kinetics. The mass, momentum and energy governing equations are fully coupled between the particle and the gas phase. In the...2014-01-01
38 Myers, Chris J.A compositional minimization approach for large asynchronous design verificationThis paper presents a compositional minimization approach with efficient state space reductions for verifying non-trivial asynchronous designs. These reductions can result in a reduced model that contains the exact same set of observably equivalent behavior in the original model, therefore no false ...2012-01-01
39 Gopalakrishnan, GaneshA compositional model for synchronous VLSI systemsCurrently available hardware specification languages have two serious deficiencies: (i) inadequate protocol definition capabilities; (ii) lack of a compositional model. We now explain these in more detail.Very large scale integration; VLSI systems1987
40 Henderson, Thomas C.A control paradigm for general purpose manipulation systemsMechanical end effectors capable of dextrous manipulation are now a reality. Solutions to the high level control issues, however, have so far proved difficult to formulate. We propose a methodology for control which produces the functionality required for a general purpose manipulation system. It is...Manipulation systems1987
41 Brunvand, Erik L.A correctness criterion for asynchronous circuit validation and optimizationIn order to reason about the correctness of asynchronous circuit implementations and specifications, Dill has developed a variant of trace theory [1]. Trace theory describes the behavior of an asynchronous circuit by representing its possible executions as strings called "traces" A useful relatio...Asynchronous circuits; Circuit optimizations; Formal verification of hardware; Trace theory; Asynchronous circuit validation1992
42 Gopalakrishnan, GaneshA correctness criterion for asynchronous circuit validation and optimizationWe propose a new relation C. called strong conformance in the context of Dill's trace theory, and define B Q A to be true exactly when B conforms to A and the success set of B contains the success set of A.

44 Barsky, Brian A.A description of several tools for the synchronization of concurrent processesConcurrent processes are tasks which may be executed simultaneously. When several such processes have access to shared variables, it is necessary to establish some regimen to control this access.
