Caches play an important role in embedded systems to bridge the performance gap between fast processor and slow memory. And prefetching mechanisms are proposed to further improve the cache performance. While in real-time systems, the application of caches complicates the Worst-Case Execution Time (WCET) analysis due to its unpredictable behavior. Modern(More)
Men are at a higher risk of developing gastric cancer than women. However, the exact mechanisms responsible for the gender differences remain unclear. Recently, a number of epidemiological and genotyping studies have attributed the gender disparity in male-predominant cancers to the disruption of androgen receptor (AR) homeostasis. Moreover, previous data(More)
Physic-based fluid simulation is used extensively nowadays; however the traditional serial algorithm can't satisfy the real-time requirement due to its complexity and computeintensive. The development of modern GPU makes this possible. In this paper, a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method for incompressible fluid was implemented using CUDA on GPU.(More)
Checkpointing is the act of saving the state of a running program so that it may be recovered later, which is a general idea that enables various functionalities in computer systems, including fault tolerance, system recovery, and process migration. Checkpointing mechanisms in traditional systems normally save the state of process running on volatile memory(More)
Cache is an important component existing in modern computer system to bridge the performance gap between the fast CPU and the slow memory system. A variety of cache optimization technologies and mechanisms are proposed to improve the cache performance, such as instruction cache prefetching. Most instruction prefetching mechanisms existing are proposed to(More)
