In this paper an adaptive distribution system for manufacturing applications is considered and examined. The system receives a set of various components at a source point and supplies these components to destination points. The objective is to minimize the total distance that has to be traveled. At each destination point some control algorithms have to be(More)
—This paper presents a novel model and method for synthesis of parallel hierarchical finite state machines (PHFSM) that permit to implement algorithms composed of modules in such a way that 1) the modules can be activated from other modules, and 2) more than one module can be activated in parallel. The model combines multiple stack memories interacting with(More)
This letter analyses and compares on-chip interfaces for hardware/software communications in the Zynq-7000 all programmable systems-on-chip. Many experiments were carried out to evaluate the exchange of data between the processing system and the programmable logic through general-purpose and high-performance ports; the experiments were conducted for both(More)
The paper shows that resources and performance of Hamming weight comparators for binary vectors significantly depend on available basic elements from which the comparators are built and, thus, to optimize the final circuits different design techniques need to be applied. The presented analysis of existing solutions clearly demonstrates that although they(More)
—By adapting to computations that are not so well-supported by general-purpose processors, reconfigurable systems achieve significant increases in performance. Such computational systems use high-capacity programmable logic devices and are based on processing units customized to the requirements of a particular application. A great deal of the research(More)
—This paper presents an approach that has been used for teaching disciplines on reconfigurable computing and advanced digital systems, which are intended to cover such topics as architectures and capabilities of field-programmable logic devices; languages for the specification, modeling, and synthesis of digital systems; design methods; computer-aided(More)
The paper analyses and compares alternative iterative and recursive implementations of FPGA circuits for various problems. Two types of recursive calls have been examined, namely for cyclic and binary (N-ary) search algorithms. The details of experiments are presented for four different design problems. The relevant comparative data have been obtained as a(More)
The paper analyses different techniques that might be employed in order to solve various problems of combinatorial optimization and argues that the best results can be achieved by the use of software running on a general-purpose computer together with an FPGA-based reconfigurable co-processor. It suggests an architecture for a combinatorial co-processor(More)
This paper presents a technique for the design of digital systems on the basis of reusable hardware templates (HT), which are circuits with modifiable functionality that might be customized to satisfy requirements of target applications, such as a highly optimized implementation of the selected problem-specific operations. It demonstrates how HTs can be(More)
