Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) provide a medium to accelerate the process of proto-typing digital designs. For designs with multiple FPGAs that need to be connected together, the bottleneck is now the process of wire-wrapping, bread-boarding, the construction of a printed circuit board, or the construction of a multi-chip module, which cannot be(More)
In modern office buildings, the customary trend is to use state of the art technology to ensure the users find it thermally comfortable , among other variables. Among the various statistical studies on comfort index vs. work efficiency of users, the most widely adopted index is the Predicted Mean Vote (PMV). Based on this index, this work proposes a control(More)
The region of the Bay of Algeciras is a very industrialized area where very few air pollution studies have been carried out. The main objective of this work has been the use of artificial neural networks (ANNs) as a predictive tool of high levels of ambient carbon monoxide (CO). Two approaches have been used: multilayer perceptron models (MLPs) with(More)
To increase their flexibility, latest FPGA devices integrate processors, arithmetics elements and memories; but these programmable circuits have a significant power consuming, which grows up at each process generation. Then it is necessary to develop reliable high-level power consumption models in order to estimate and reduce the power budget as soon as(More)
The present work proposes a standardized and flexible model of the semantics required to enunciate the structures and activities in intelligent buildings using a descriptive language formalized in a DTD of XML. The use of XML documents to model buildings allow to explicitly show the hierarchy of the existing building containers, to ensure the portability of(More)
