—Technology trends enable the integration of many processor cores in a System-on-Chip (SoC). In these complex architectures, several architectural parameters can be tuned to find the best trade-off in terms of multiple metrics such as energy and delay. The main goal of the MULTICUBE project consists of the definition of an automatic Design Space Exploration(More)
We develop a new method to map (i.e. allocate and schedule) real-time applications into certain multiprocessor systems. Its objectives are 1) the minimization of the number of processors used and 2) the minimization of the deadline missing time. Given a parallel program with real time constraints and a multiprocessor system, our method finds schedules of(More)
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS First of all, I would like to acknowledge the guidance, support and patience from my advisor Prof. David Rutledge. His knowledge and wisdom have guided me in my research; his continuous support and encouragement have helped me through many challenging situations. I appreciate this wonderful opportunity to study and work in the MMIC group at(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and neuroradiologists' subjective assessments of image quality in 3-Tesla (3-T) or phased-array MR systems that are now available for clinical neuroimaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS Brain MR images of six normal volunteers were obtained on each of three scanners: a 1.5-T single-channel system, a 12-channel,(More)
