This paper describes an approach to hardware/software design space exploration for reconfigurable processors. The existing compiler tool-chain, because of the user-definable instructions, needs to be extended in order to offer developers an easy way to explore design space. Such extension often is not easy to use for developer that have only a software(More)
BACKGROUND Antiretroviral regimens with simplified dosing and better safety are needed to maximize the efficiency of antiretroviral delivery in resource-limited settings. We investigated the efficacy and safety of antiretroviral regimens with once-daily compared to twice-daily dosing in diverse areas of the world. METHODS AND FINDINGS 1,571 HIV-1-infected(More)
This paper introduces an architectural simulation environment, aimed at defining the best SOC architecture for complex system-level applications. The application is modeled using an abstract Timing Modeling Language, that describes the requests (e.g., memory accesses, I/Os, etc.) that the application makes to the architecture. The abstract architecture is(More)
Modern embedded systems must execute a variety of high performance real-time tasks, such as audio and image compression and decompression, channel coding and encoding, etc. Reconfigurable platforms can effectively be used in these cases, because they allow to re-use the architecture for as many applications as possible.This paper describes the(More)
BACKGROUND Tuberculosis (TB) is common among HIV-infected individuals in many resource-limited countries and has been associated with poor survival. We evaluated morbidity and mortality among individuals first starting antiretroviral therapy (ART) with concurrent active TB or other AIDS-defining disease using data from the "Prospective Evaluation of(More)
Infrastructure for conducting neurological research in resource-limited settings (RLS) is limited. The lack of neurological and neuropsychological (NP) assessment and normative data needed for clinical interpretation impedes research and clinical care. Here, we report on ACTG 5271, which provided neurological training of clinical site personnel and(More)
