Reconfigurable architectures have become increasingly important in recent years. In this paper we present an approach to the problem of executing 3D graphics interactive applications onto these architectures. The hierarchical trees are usually implemented to reduce the data processed, thereby diminishing the execution time. We have developed a mapping(More)
Network-on-Chip (NoC) is a growing and promising communication paradigm for Multiprocessor-System-On-Chip (MPSoC) design, because of its scalability and performance features. In designing such systems, mapping and scheduling are becoming critical stages, because of the increase of both size of the network and appli-cation's complexity. Some reported(More)
The authors present a scheduling methodology for conditional execution of kernels onto single instruction stream/multiple data stream multicontext reconfigurable architectures. Data flow graphs are used to describe the target applications in which some kernels are conditionally executed depending on runtime conditions. Immediately after testing a condition(More)
This paper addresses the exploitation of the capabilities of multi-context reconfigurable architectures to handle a variety of interactive multimedia services. One of the main features of these applications is their changing behavior depending on the runtime scenario, turning the configuration management into a key point. In this work, a configuration(More)
In this paper we present a data prefetch policy for the execution of 3D interactive applications on coarse-grain reconfigurable architectures. User's actions not occurring at expected times combined with the volume of data involved in this kind of applications impact strongly in performance. We define a data prefetch scheme to avoid reconfigurable(More)
The use of emerging Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) technologies in medical applications could help to address the problem of the increasing number of chronic patients worldwide. Despite the plethora of medical mobile applications, the use of WBAN technology for health care services at a home environments is just emerging. This work presents the design(More)
