Proton, Cd, Pb, Sr, and Zn adsorption onto the fungal species Saccharomyces cerevisiae were measured in bulk adsorption experiments as a function of time, pH, surface: metal ratio, and ionic strength, and we measured the electrophoretic mobility of the cells as a function of pH. We modeled the acid/base properties of the fungal cell wall by invoking a(More)
Vanadium is listed on the United States Environment Protection Agency (USEPA) candidate contaminant list # 2 (CCL2), and regulatory guidelines for vanadium exist in some US states. The USEPA requires treatability studies before making regulatory decisions on CCL2 contaminants. Previous studies have examined vanadium adsorption onto some metal hydroxides but(More)
The memory organization and the management of the memory space is a critical part of every NoC based platform design. We propose a Data Management Engine (DME), that is a block of programmable hardware and part of every processing element. It off-loads the processing element (CPU, DSP, etc.) by managing the memory space, memory access and the communication(More)
This paper studies realization and performance comparison of the sequential and weak consistency models in the network-on-chip (NoC) based distributed shared memory (DSM) multi-core systems. Memory consistency constrains the order of shared memory operations for the expected behavior of the multi-core systems. Both the consistency models are realized in the(More)
This paper studies realization of relaxed memory consistency models in the network-on-chip based distributed shared memory (DSM) multi-core systems. Within DSM systems, memory consistency is a critical issue since it affects not only the performance but also the correctness of programs. We investigate the scalability of the relaxed consistency models (weak,(More)
We propose a novel hardware support for three relaxed memory models, Release Consistency (RC), Partial Store Ordering (PSO) and Total Store Ordering (TSO) in Network-on-Chip (NoC) based distributed shared memory multicore systems. The RC model is realized by using a Transaction Counter and an Address Stack based approach to enforce the required global(More)
—In Multicore Network-on-Chip, it is preferable to realize distributed but shared memory (DSM) in order to reuse the huge amount of legacy code. Within DSM systems, memory consistency is a critical issue since it affects not only performance but also the correctness of programs. In this paper, we investigate the scalability of the weak consistency model,(More)
Quinolones are broad-spectrum synthetic antibacterial drugs first obtained during the synthesis of chloroquine. Nalidixic acid, the prototype of quinolones, first became available for clinical consumption in 1962 and was used mainly for urinary tract infections caused by Escherichia coli and other pathogenic Gram-negative bacteria. Recently, significant(More)
This paper studies the realization and scalability of release and protected release consistency models in Network-on-Chip (NoC) based Distributed Shared Memory (DSM) multi-core systems. The protected release consistency (PRC) model is proposed as an extension of the release consistency (RC) model and provides further relaxation in the shared memory(More)
We analyze the scalability of six memory consistency models in network-on-chip (NoC)-based distributed shared memory multicore systems: 1) protected release consistency (PRC); 2) release consistency (RC); 3) weak consistency (WC); 4) partial store ordering (PSO); 5) total store ordering (TSO); and 6) sequential consistency (SC). Their realizations are based(More)
