Reduction circuits are used to reduce rows of floating point values to single values. Binary floating point operators often have deep pipelines, which may cause hazards when many consecutive rowsâ€¦ (More)

Primary requirements of wireless multimedia handheld computers are high-performance, flexibility, energy-efficiency and low costs. A compromise for these contradicting requirements can be found in aâ€¦ (More)

In spite of the fact that floating-point arithmetic is costly in terms of silicon area, the joint design of hardware for floating-point and integer arithmetic is seldom considered. While componentsâ€¦ (More)

In order to make a dependable distributed computer system resilient to arbitrary failures of its processors, deterministic Byzantine agreement protocols (BAPs) can be applied. Many BAPs found inâ€¦ (More)

Recovery of data stored in a fault-tolerant and secure way requires encryption and / or decryption of data with secret cryptographic functions, for which a group of processors should be responsible.â€¦ (More)

This paper1addresses the hardware implementation of a dynamic scheduler for non-manifest data dependent periodic loops. Static scheduling techniques which are known to give near optimalâ€¦ (More)

In this paper we address the problem of scheduling algorithms embodied with a mixture of nonmanifest-loops [1], variable-latency and fixed-latency units [2], [3] for high throughput DSP-applications.â€¦ (More)
