OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Paradoxical vocal fold motion and exercise-induced paradoxical vocal fold motion (EIPVFM) are two related conditions that do not have definitive diagnostic criteria. Much of the EIPVFM literature describes patients with characteristic physiologic findings of severe upper airway obstruction or obvious airflow limitation in the clinical(More)

As computing moves to exascale, it will be dominated by energy-efficiency. We propose a new GPU-like accelerator called the Stencil Processing Unit (SPU), for implementing dense stencil computations in an energy-efficient manner. We address all the levels of the programming stack, from architecture, programming API, runtime system and compilation. First, a(More)
Modern computer systems have become so complex that understanding and predicting the performance of programs is a significant challenge. For instance, when designing microprocessor architectures, engineers must assess the tradeoffs involved in allocating the on-die real estate (e.g., between the L1 cache, execution units, etc.) in order to achieve certain(More)
Recently, a modular multilevel converter (MMC) technology was introduced suitable to extend the application of voltage source converters to high power HVDC systems. The MMC technology is based on a modular topology which builds on elemental constituent parts called submodules (SMs). This modularity enables reduced switching losses and increased power(More)
The TAGE predictor, TAgged GEometric length predictor, was introduced in [10]. TAGE relies on several predictor tables indexed through independent functions of the global branch/path history and the branch address. The TAGE predictor uses (partially) tagged components as the PPM-like predictor [5]. It relies on (partial) match as the prediction computation(More)
