In this paper we present a novel field programmable mixed-signal integrated device consisting of a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), a set of programmable and interconnectable analog cells, and a microprocessor core. This processor can run general purpose user programs, handle the dynamic reconfiguration of the programmable blocks and probe in real time(More)
Mission-critical applications such as space or avionics increasingly demand high fault tolerance capabilities of their electronic systems. Among the fault tolerance characteristics, the performance and costs of an electronic system remain the leader factors in the space and avionics market. In particular, when considering SRAM-based FPGAs, specific(More)
Childhood obesity is a major worldwide health problem. Intervention programs to ameliorate the rate of obesity have been designed and implemented; yet the epidemic has no end near in sight. AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) has become one of the most important key elements in energy control, appetite regulation, myogenesis, adipocyte differentiation, and(More)
—Multilevel converters have received increased interest recently as a result of their ability to generate high quality output waveforms with a low switching frequency. This makes them very attractive for high power applications. A Cascaded H-Bridge converter is a multilevel topology which is formed from the series connection of H-Bridge cells. Optimized(More)
The protection of processor-based systems to mitigate the harmful effect of transient faults (soft errors) is gaining importance as technology shrinks. At the same time, for large segments of embedded markets, parameters like cost and performance continue to be as important as reliability. This paper presents a compiler-based methodology for facilitating(More)
