Wireless local area networks (WLANs) have become very popular both in private and public sectors. Despite the fast expansion of WLANs in various environments, quality of service (QoS) issues for multimedia applications in WLANs are not yet resolved. Multimedia applications contain traffic that are sensitive to delay and jitter and therefore a best-effort(More)
This paper introduces a novel architecture for next-generation adaptive computing systems, which we term 3D-SoftChip. The 3D-SoftChip is a 3-dimensional (3D) vertically integrated adaptive computing system combining state-of-the-art processing and 3D interconnection technology. It comprises the vertical integration of two chips (a configurable array(More)
A novel Smart Pixel Opto-VLSI architecture to implement a complete 2-D wavelet transform of real-time captured images is presented. The Smart Pixel architecture enables the realization of a highly parallel, compact, low power device capable of real-time capture, compression, decompression and display of images suitable for Mobile Multimedia Communication(More)
Using p-Cycles to protect against single span failures in Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (WDM) networks has been widely studied. p-Cycle retains not only the speed of ring-like restoration, but also achieves the capacity efficiency over mesh networks. However, in selecting an optimal set of p-cycles to achieve the minimum spare capacity and fast(More)
This paper describes the high-level system modeling and functional verification of a novel 3D vertically integrated Adaptive Computing Systemon-Chip (ACSoC), which we term 3D-SoftChip. The 3D-SoftChip comprises two vertically integrated chips (a Configurable Array Processor and an Intelligent Configurable Switch) through an Indium Bump Interconnection Array(More)
Colour 2D barcodes, such as the MMCC barcode, have been developed recently to improve the data capacity of monochrome barcodes. However, the use of colour imposes greater challenges in decoding the symbols correctly as different lighting conditions on the barcode vary the values of the colours significantly. Hence, it is desirable to have an adaptive(More)
This project investigates an optimum phase design implementing a 256 phase Opto-ULSI processor for multifunction capable optical networks. The design of an 8 phase processor is already in construction and will provide the initial base for experimentation and characterization. The challenge is to be able to compensate for the non-linearity of the liquid(More)
