Advances in low-power and low-cost sensor networks have led to solutions mature enough for use in a broad range of applications varying from health monitoring to building surveillance. The development of those applications has been stimulated by the finalization of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard, which defines the medium access control (MAC) and physical layer(More)
Interestingly, data access and storage management for embedded programmable processors that you really wait for now is coming. It's significant to wait for the representative and beneficial books to read. Every book that is provided in better way and utterance will be expected by many peoples. Even you are a good reader or not, feeling to read this book(More)
This article addresses the compilation of a sequential program for parallel execution on a modern GPU. To this end, we present a novel source-to-source compiler called PPCG. PPCG singles out for its ability to accelerate computations from any static control loop nest, generating multiple CUDA kernels when necessary. We introduce a multilevel tiling strategy(More)
A cognitive radio (CR) network should be able to sense its environment and adapt communication to utilize the unused licensed spectrum without interfering with licensed users. In this paper, we look at CR-enabled networks with distributed control. As CR nodes need to hop from channel to channel to make the most use of the spectrum opportunities, we believe(More)
We present a survey of the state-of-the-art techniques used in performing data and memory-related optimizations in embedded systems. The optimizations are targeted directly or indirectly at the memory subsystem, and impact one or more out of three important cost metrics: area, performance, and power dissipation of the resulting implementation. We first(More)
Wireless microsensor networks, which have been the topic of intensive research in recent years, are now emerging in industrial applications. An important milestone in this transition has been the release of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard that specifies interoperable wireless physical and medium access control layers targeted to sensor node radios. In this(More)
An ever increasing number of dynamic interactive applications are implemented on portable consumer electronics. Designers depend largely on operating systems to map these applications on the architecture. However, today's embedded operating systems abstract away the precise architectural details of the platform. As a consequence, they cannot exploit the(More)
Programs for embedded multimedia applications typically manipulate several large multi-dimensional arrays. The energy consumption per access increases with their size; the access to these large arrays is responsible for a substantial part of the power consumption. In this paper, an analysis is developed to compute a bounding box for the elements in the(More)
Current Systems-On-Chip (SoC) execute applications that demand extensive parallel processing. Networks-On-Chip (NoC) provide a structured way of realizing interconnections on silicon, and obviate the limitations of bus-based solution. NoCs can have regular or ad hoc topologies, and functional validation is essential to assess their correctness and(More)
