The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of ground transportation on guineapigs. Physiological parameters, i.e. heart rate (HR), body temperature (BT) and activity (ACT), were measured before and after transport, using previously implanted radiotelemetry transmitters. Body weight was measured before and after transport. After a postsurgical(More)
Communication over a MIMO (multiple-input-multiple-output) channel promises several advantages: increase in channel capacity, reduced transmit power, greater coverage, and improved link robustness. The minimum mean squared error equalizer (MMSE) is a potential algorithm in addressing the MIMO detection challenge. This paper presents four implementations for(More)
This paper describes VPF, a VLIW SIMD processor architecture developed to demonstrate the possibilities and limitations of the modern FPGA devices with respect to vector processing. VPF is developed in a bottom-up manner, using some specific Xilinx Virtex-4 device features to achieve 200 MHz performance for vector widths up to 16 issuing one VLIW(More)
Today's smartphones and tablets contain multiple cellular modems to support 2G/3G/4G standards, including Long Term Evolution (LTE). They run on complex multi-processor hardware platforms and have to meet hard real-time constraints. Dataflow modeling can be used to design an LTE receiver. Static dataflow allows a rich set of analysis techniques, but is too(More)
