Hyperelliptic curve cryptography with genus larger than one has not been seriously considered for cryptographic purposes because many existing implementations are significantly slower than elliptic curve versions with the same level of security. In this paper, the first ever complete hardware implementation of a hyperelliptic curve coprocessor is described.… (More)

Combinational (combinatorial) circuits realize Boolean functions and deal with digitized signals, usually denoted by 0s and 1s. The behavior of a combinational circuit is memoryless; that is, given a stimulus to the input of a com-binational circuit, a response appears at the output after some propagation delay, but the response is not stored or fed back.… (More)

Object recognition is a subproblem of the more general problem of perception, and can be defined as follows. Given a scene consisting of one or more objects, can we identify and localize those objects that are sufficiently visible to the sensory system? It is generally assumed that a description of each object to be recognized is available to the computer… (More)
In a synchronous digital system, the clock signal is used to define a time reference for the movement of data within that system. Because this function is vital to the operation of a synchronous system, much attention has been given to the characteristics of these clock signals and the networks used in their distribution. Clock signals are often regarded as… (More)
