The memory subsystem accounts for a significant portion of the aggregate energy budget of contemporary embedded systems. Moreover, there exists a large potential for optimizing the energy consumption of the memory subsystem. Consequently, novel memories as well as novel algorithms for their efficient utilization are being designed. Scratchpads are known to(More)
The energy consumption for Mobile Embedded Systems is a limiting factor because of today's battery capacities. The memory subsystem consumes a large chunk of the energy, necessitating its efficient utilization. Energy efficient scratchpads are thus becoming common, though unlike caches they require to be explicitly utilized. In this paper, an algorithm(More)
—Energy consumption is one of the important parameters to be optimized during the design of portable embedded systems. Thus, most of the contemporary portable devices feature low-power processors coupled with on-chip memories (e.g., caches, scratchpads). Scratchpads are better than traditional caches in terms of power, performance, area, and predictability.(More)
Data clustering is a process of putting similar data into groups. A clustering algorithm partitions a data set into several groups such that the similarity within a group is larger than among groups.This paper reviews six types of clustering techniques-k-Means clustering techniques are implemented and analysed using a clustering tool WEKA.Performance of the(More)
Nanocrystalline powders showed the distinguishable difference in catalytic, electrical and optical properties from macroscopic, microscopic and bulk materials. Among them, zinc oxide (ZnO) is one of the candidates that have been attracting attention because of its wide band gap energy of about 3.37 eV. In this work, ZnO nanoparticles were synthesised by(More)
AIMS To locate a high-dose point hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH)-contaminated site, to identify HCH-degrading bacteria in it and assay HCH-decontamination by biostimulation. METHODS AND RESULTS Bacteria were isolated by serial dilution method from HCH-contaminated soil samples collected from areas near an HCH-manufacturing unit and its dumpsite in North(More)
Mitophagy is critical for cell homeostasis. Externalization of the inner mitochondrial membrane phospholipid, cardiolipin (CL), to the surface of the outer mitochondrial membrane (OMM) was identified as a mitophageal signal recognized by the microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3. However, the CL-translocating machinery remains unknown. Here we(More)
Cloud computing is emerging as an increasingly popular computing paradigm. Cloud computing allows dynamic scaling of resources available to users as needed. The increasing demand for cloud computing resources has led to increased virtual machine provisioning on the fly. However, initializing a new virtual machine instantly in a cloud is not possible, and it(More)
Diabetes has been reported to affect salivary glands adversely in humans and experimental models. Glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT), glutamate pyruvate transaminase (GPT) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) are salivary enzymes that also are widely distributed in animal tissues. We determined GOT and GPT levels in saliva samples of 100 type 1 and 30(More)
