—Most conventional packet classifiers find only the highest priority filter that matches the arriving packet. However, new networking applications such as network intrusion detection systems and load balancers require all (or the first few) matching filters during classification. In this paper, two TCAM-based architectures for multimatch search are(More)
—Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder in which individuals stop breathing during their sleep. Most of sleep apnea cases are currently undiagnosed because of expenses and practicality limitations of overnight polysomnography (PSG) at sleep labs, where an expert human observer is needed to work over night. New techniques for sleep apnea(More)
Pressure ulcer is an age-old problem imposing a huge cost to our health care system. Detecting and keeping record of the patient's posture on bed, help care givers reposition patient more efficiently and reduce the risk of developing pressure ulcer. In this paper, a commercial pressure mapping system is used to create a time-stamped, whole-body pressure map(More)
Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) is an unexpected death caused by loss of heart function when the electrical impulses fired from the ventricles become irregular. Most common SCDs are caused by cardiac arrhythmias and coronary heart disease. They are mainly due to Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI), myocardial ischaemia and cardiac arrhythmia. This paper aims at(More)
—Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder in which individuals stop breathing during their sleep. These episodes last 10 seconds or more and cause oxygen levels in the blood to drop. Most of sleep apnea cases are currently undiagnosed because of expenses and practicality limitations of overnight polysomnography (PSG) at sleep labs, where an expert(More)
Melanoma spreads through metastasis, and therefore, it has been proved to be very fatal. Statistical evidence has revealed that the majority of deaths resulting from skin cancer are as a result of melanoma. Further investigations have shown that the survival rates in patients depend on the stage of the cancer; early detection and intervention of melanoma(More)
— Recent network intrusion detection systems (NIDS) use regular expressions to represent suspicious or malicious character sequences in packet payloads in a more efficient way. This paper introduces a new basic building block based on Non-deterministic Finite Automata (NFA) hardware implementation to support complex constraint repetitions in regular(More)
Epilepsy is a crucial neurological disorder in which patients experience epileptic seizure caused by abnormal electrical discharges from the brain. It is highly common in children and adults at the age of 65-70. Around 1 % of the world's population is affected by this disease. The mechanism of epilepsy is still incomprehensible to researchers; however, 80%(More)
