SRAM-based FPGA devices are susceptible to single event effects (SEE) including single event upsets (SEU) within the configuration memory. Configuration scrubbing along with TMR or other hardware redundancy techniques are often used to mitigate the effects of these SEUs. However, the use of traditional configuration scrubbing prevents the ability to(More)
As FPGA logic density continues to increase, new techniques are needed to store initial configuration data efficiently, maintain usability, and minimize cost. In this paper, a novel compression technique is presented for Xilinx Virtex partially reconfigurable FPGAs. This technique relies on constrained hardware design and layout combined with a few simple(More)
Using observed GALEX far-ultraviolet (FUV) fluxes and VLA images of the 21-cm HI column densities, along with estimates of the local dust abundances, we measure the volume densities of a sample of actively star-forming giant molecular clouds (GMCs) in the nearby spiral galaxy M83 on a typical resolution scale of 170 pc. Our approach is based on an(More)
We present an approach for analysing the morphology and physical properties of Hi features near giant OB associations in M33, in the context of a model whereby the Hi excess arises from photodissociation of the molecular gas in remnants of the parent Giant Molecular Clouds (GMCs). Examples are presented here in the environs of NGC604 and CPSDPZ204, two(More)
HI features near young star clusters in M81 are identified as the photodissociated surfaces of Giant Molecular Clouds (GMCs) from which the young stars have recently formed. The HI column densities of these features show a weak trend, from undetectable values inside R = 3.7 kpc and increasing rapidly to values around 3 × 10 21 cm −2 near R ≈ 7.5 kpc. This(More)
