models: a standarized protocol for describing and applying novel bio-inspired computing tools. A novel image thresholding method based on membrane computing and fuzzy entropy.
Energy optimization is very important for portable and battery-driven embedded systems. With the shrinking of transistor sizes, reducing leakage power becomes a significant issue. In this paper, we propose a novel prediction approach to predict idleness of functional units for leakage energy management. Using a state-based predictor, historical utilization… (More)
Scratch-pad memory (SPM), a small fast software-managed on-chip SRAM (Static Random Access Memory), is widely used in embedded systems. With the ever-widening performance gap between processors and main memory, it is very important to reduce the serious off-chip memory access overheads caused by transferring data between SPM and off-chip memory. In this… (More)
