To confer the robustness and high quality of service, modern computing architectures running real-time applications should provide high system performance and high timing predictability. Cache memory is used to improve performance by bridging the speed gap between the main memory and CPU. However, the cache introduces timing unpredictability creating(More)
Conotoxin classification could assist in the study of the structure function relationship of ion-channels and receptors as well as identifying potential therapeutics in the treatment of a wide variety of diseases such as schizophrenia, chronic pain, cardiovascular and bladder dysfunction. In this study, we introduce a novel method (Toxin-AAM) for conotoxin(More)

This paper introduces the Spidergon-Donut (SD) on-chip interconnection network for interconnecting 1,000 cores in future MPSoCs and CMPs. Unlike the Spidergon network, the SD network which extends the Spidergon network into the second dimension, significantly reduces the network diameter, well below the popular 2D Mesh and Torus networks for one extra node(More)

Biometrics recognition is one of the leading identity recognition means in the world today. Iris recognition is very effective for person identification due to the iris’(More)
In this paper character recognition in Saudi Automobile License Plates is described. Due to special properties of Saudi license plates, simpler procedures as compared to the ones used for Lebanese plates have been developed. A limited character set for recognition enables the development of smaller recognition trees. The developed procedure was applied to(More)
We investigate the effectiveness of cluster-based routing protocols in extending the lifetime for energy-constrained wireless sensor networks. Most routing protocol designs for wireless sensors exploit the fact that they are not communication networks in the classical meaning. They can rather be considered as distributed systems where all the different(More)
Based on the recent design trend from giant chip-vendors, multicore systems are being deployed with multilevel caches to achieve higher levels of performance. Supporting real-time applications on multicore systems becomes a great challenge as caches are power hungry and caches make the execution time predictability worse. Studies show that timing(More)
