As transistor density continues to grow at an exponential rate in accordance to Moore's law, the goal for many Chip Multi-Processor (CMP) systems is to scale the number of on-chip cores proportionally. Unfortunately, off-chip memory bandwidth capacity is projected to grow slowly compared to the desired growth in the number of cores. This creates a situation(More)
The Cell processor offers substantial computational power which can be effectively utilized only if application design and implementation are tuned to the Cell architecture. In this paper, we examine application characteristics which facilitate efficient use of the Cell processor, and those which present obstacles to it. Moreover, we consider possible(More)
An atomic absorption spectrophotometric (AAS) method was successfully applied to analysis of urine for arsenic (As) as a measure of biological monitoring of occupational exposure to As in Vietnam. The application of the method to urine samples from 75 non-exposed control urbanites (after 2-day abstinence from sea foods) gave a reference level of 62.4 +/-(More)
New application services, such as multimedia, digital images, video on demand, and high bandwidth data services, demand bandwidth much higher than those available from existing Public Switched Digital Network (PSDN). These new services have a wide range of traffic flow characteristics and Quality of Services (QoS) requirements. To meet the new requirements,(More)
