We present the design, implementation, and preliminary results of PAM - a low-cost and portable personal air quality monitor that provides real-time air quality measurements for the user's immediate environment. PAM consists of a PAM client and a cloud-side PAM service. The PAM client utilizes two inexpensive dust sensors to obtain raw particulate… (More)
Moore's Law will continue to increase the number of transistors on die for a couple of decades, as silicon technology moves from 65nm today to 45nm, 32 nm and 22nm in the future. Since the power and thermal constraints increase with frequency, multi-core or many-core will be the way of the future microprocessor.
W ith recent developments in compilation technology and architectural design, the line between traditional hardware and software roles has become increasingly blurred. The compiler can now see the processor's inner structure, which lets architects exploit sophisticated program analysis techniques to hide branch and memory access delays, for example.… (More)
