The DIVA (Data IntensiVe Architecture) system incorporates a collection of Processing-In-Memory (PIM) chips as smart-memory co-processors to a conventional microprocessor. We have recently fabricated prototype DIVA PIMs. These chips represent the first smart-memory devices designed to support virtual addressing and capable of executing multiple threads of(More)
The Data-Intensive Architecture (DIVA) system incorporates Processing-In-Memory (PIM) chips as smart-memory coprocessors to a microprocessor. This architecture exploits inherent memory bandwidth both on chip and across the system to target several classes of bandwidth-limited applications, including multimedia, pointer-based, and sparse-matrix applications.(More)
—Thispaper presents a fast, simple router design for implementing the Red Rover algorithm for a bidirectional ring. This design is very suitable for the Data-Intensive Architecture (DIVA) system, a system which demonstrates the benefits of embedded DRAM technology, because of its high performance as well as simple architecture and low cost. The key(More)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We evaluated whether stent-assisted thrombectomy (SAT) is safer or more clinically beneficial than aggressive mechanical clot disruption (AMCD) for patients with acute intracranial artery occlusion. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of 72 patients (33 with SAT and 39 with AMCD) who underwent intra-arterial(More)
This paper first presents an accurate and efficient method of estimating the short circuit energy dissipation and the output transition time of CMOS buffers. Next, the paper describes a sizing method for tapered buffer chains. It is shown that the first-order sizing behavior, which considers only the capacitive energy dissipation, can be improved by(More)
The Multi-Threshold CMOS (MTCMOS) technique can significantly reduce sub-threshold leakage currents during the circuit sleep (standby) mode by adding high- Vth power switches (sleep transistors) to low-Vth logic cells. During the active mode of the circuit, the high-Vth transistors and the virtual ground network can be modeled as resistors, which in turn(More)
We present a new synthesis flow for anti-fuse based FPGAs with multiple-output logic cells. The flow consists of two steps: mapping and packing. The mapper finds mapping solutions using a dynamic programming-based approach that finds the best match at each node of the decomposed target circuit. After this mapping step is completed, the resulting netlist of(More)
Leakage power and hot-carrier effects are emerging as key concerns in deep sub-micron CMOS technologies with respect to their effects on the total power dissipation and reliability of VLSI circuits. Leakage power dissipation is rapidly becoming a substantial contributor to the total power dissipation as threshold voltage becomes small. Similarly, the(More)
