Measuring the effectiveness of robots in teaching computer science
TLDR
We report the results of a year-long experiment in the use of robots to teach computer science. Expand
Discrete weighted transforms and large-integer arithmetic
It is well known that Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) techniques may be used to multiply large integers. We introduce the concept of Discrete Weighted Transforms (DWTs) which, in certain situations,Expand

TLDR
We present empirical results describing the implementation of an IEEE Standard 754 compliant floating-point adder/multiplier using field programmable gate arrays. Expand
Quantitative analysis of the effects of robots on introductory Computer Science education
TLDR
We report the results of a year-long experiment in the use of robots to teach computer science. Expand
Teaching computer science with robotics using Ada/Mindstorms 2.0
TLDR
We present one approach to teaching basic computer science concepts with robotics, using an Ada interface to Lego Mindstorms™. Expand

TLDR
We present an Ada-based interface to Lego Mindstorms TM, a programmable robotics kit that has attracted considerable attention in the computing community. Expand
Partial resolution in branch target buffers
TLDR
We present our analysis of the relationship between the number of tag bits in a branch target buffer and prediction accuracy, based on dynamic simulations of the SPECINT92 benchmark suite. Expand
Calculating the FHT in hardware
TLDR
A parallel, pipelined architecture for calculating the fast Hartley transform (FHT) is discussed, and a hardware implementation of conditional block floating point scaling that reduces error due to data growth with little extra cost is described. Expand
