Power consumption has become one of the biggest challenges in high-performance microprocessor design. The rapid increase in the complexity and speed of each new CPU generation is outstripping the benefits of voltage reduction and feature size scaling. Designers are thus continuously challenged to come up with innovative ways to reduce power, while trying to(More)
It is mid 1998. The Speedy Microsystems design team is discussing a memo they have just received from Marketing about their next generation machine due to tape out in 2000, a 1.5V, lGHz, 100 watt, 40 million transistor superscalar microprocessor with multimedia extensions to be fabricated in O.lSum CMOS. Only one problem. Marketing has just announced a(More)
Avoidable blindness is an important global public health concern. This study aimed to assess Trinidad and Tobago's progress towards achieving the Pan American Health Organization, 'Strategic Framework for Vision 2020: The Right to Sight-Caribbean Region,' indicators through comprehensive review of the eyecare system, in order to facilitate health system(More)
PURPOSE This paper describes the rationale, study design and procedures of the National Eye Survey of Trinidad and Tobago (NESTT). The main objective of this survey is to obtain prevalence estimates of vision impairment and blindness for planning and policy development. METHODS A population-based, cross-sectional survey was undertaken using random(More)
Power dissipation is rapidly becoming one of the most significantproblems in IC design, and this in portables as well as ASIC and high-performancemicroprocessor platforms. In recent years, we have witnessedthe emergence of a variety of design methods and design automationtools to keep dissipation within bounds. This might give theimpression that power(More)
