The TTCAN protocol is a new development in CAN technology that specifies a time-slot based communication mechanism. TTCAN technology avoids the transmission collisions commonly found in standard CAN networks. In TTCAN, all the message instances are transmitted only on previously allocated time-slots. No other instance may be transmitted on an allocated(More)
Real-time image processing requires high computational and I/O throughputs obtained by use of optoelectronic system solutions. A novel architecture that uses focal-plane optoelectronic-area I/O with a fine-grain, low-memory, single-instruction-multiple-data (SIMD) processor array is presented as an efficient computational solution for real-time(More)
DESIGN PROBLEMS The paper discusses some new hardware and software tools that can be used for the design of virtual circuits based on dynamically reconfigurable FPGAs. With the aid of these tools we can implement a system that requires some hardware resources R c , on available hardware that has resources R h , where R c >R h. The main idea of the approach(More)
The wide use of fieldbus based distributed systems in embedded control applications triggered the research on the problem of transmission network induced jitter in control variables. In this paper we introduce a variant of the classical Genetic Algorithm, which we call Progressive Genetic Algorithm, and show how it can be used to reduce jitter suffered by(More)
A computer vision camera prototype for real-time applications has been developed. The camera integrates a CMOS image sensor, an FPGA based coprocessing card, and an embedded PC for communication and control tasks. The system is targeted to computer vision tasks where low level processing and feature extraction can be implemented in the PPGA device. The PPGA(More)
