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)
This paper presents the development and implementation of a visual information management system to be used for local as well as remote monitoring and supervision of critical areas in buildings. The proposed system uses a network Internet-like based communication link and it has been built upon the client-server paradigm. Results about the image quality and(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)
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)
