A generator-based design and validation methodology for rapid prototyping of elliptic curve public-key cryptosystem hardware is described. By their very nature, crypto systems challenge both design and validation. Pure RTL-based synthesis is as unsuitable as is high-level synthesis. Instead, a generator program accepts the two main parameters, key size and(More)
VHDL model descriptions can be processed by synthesis tools in order to derive a netlist of basic logic elements, which can then be fed into place and route tools. Based on this design flow Register Transfer Level (RTL) descriptions have proven to be well suited to efficiently design integrated circuits. In addition to using commercial synthesis tools,(More)
Molecular simulation methods have increasingly contributed to our understanding of molecular and nanoscale systems. However, the family of Monte Carlo techniques has taken a backseat to molecular dynamics based methods, which is also reflected in the number of available simulation packages. Here, we report the development of a generic, versatile simulation(More)
INTRODUCTION Pain intensity attenuates muscular activity, proprioception, and tactile acuity, with consequent changes of joint kinematics. People suffering from low back pain (LBP) frequently show movement control impairments of the lumbar spine in sagittal plane. This cross-sectional, observational study investigated if the intensity of LBP attenuates(More)
INTRODUCTION Assessment of movement dysfunctions commonly comprises trunk range of motion (ROM), movement or control impairment (MCI), repetitive movements (RM), and reposition error (RE). Inertial measurement unit (IMU)-systems could be used to quantify these movement dysfunctions in clinical settings. The aim of this study was to evaluate a novel(More)
Assessment of lumbar movement dysfunction commonly comprises trunk range of motion (ROM), movement or control impairment (MCI), and reposition error (RE). Those assessments are typically based on visual observation. Consequently it is not possible to reliably quantify back movements for intersubject comparisons, or for monitoring changes before and after an(More)
This paper is concerned with a substantial speed up of image processing methods on 2D and 3D images making use of modern FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) technology. The applications of this class of methods ranges from 2D and 3D image denoising and restoration, segmentation, morphological shape recovery and matching to vector field visualization and(More)
Usually visualization is applied to gain insight into data. Yet consuming the data in form of visual representation is not always enough. Instead, users need to edit the data, preferably through the same means used to visualize them. In this work, we present a semi-automatic approach to visual editing of graphs. The key idea is to use an interactive(More)
