This paper describes how the scheduling algorithms and schedulability analysis methods developed for periodic tasks can be extended to provide performance guarantees to semi-periodic tasks. Like periodic tasks, the requests in a semi-periodic task are released regularly. However, their computation times vary widely. We focus on systems where the total(More)
 Mouse KRC is a large zinc finger protein that binds to the κB motif of gene transcription and to the recognition signal sequences for the somatic recombination of the immunoglobulin and T-cell receptor gene segments. The mouse KRC gene is more than 70 kilobases (kb) in size, and contains at least seven exons, with the largest transcript being ∼9.5 kb.(More)
H.264/AVC intra-frame encoding contains several computation-intensive coding tools that form a long data dependency loop that is difficult to speed up. In this paper, we present a low-power and high-performance H.264/AVC intra-frame encoder. We propose several novel approaches to alleviate the performance bottleneck caused by the long data dependency loop(More)
Viral infection poses a major problem for public health, horticulture, and animal husbandry, possibly causing severe health crises and economic losses. Viral infections can be identified by the specific detection of viral sequences in many ways. The microarray approach not only tolerates sequence variations of newly evolved virus strains, but can also(More)
