The need to process multimedia data places large computational demands on portable/embedded devices. These multimedia functions share common characteristics: they are computationally intensive and data-streaming, performing the same operation(s) on many data elements. The Reconfigurable Streaming Vector Processor (RSVP) is a vector coprocessor architecture(More)

Next-generation mobile devices will continue to demand high processing power for imaging applications. The expected performance is in the class of supercomputers, but delivered with limited energy and memory bandwidth for embedded systems. This article advocates a streaming computation model that leverages the deterministic access patterns in imaging(More)
A large number of sensors (i.e., video, radar, laser, ultrasound, etc.) that continuously monitor the environment are finding their way in the average automobile. The algorithms processing the data captured by these sensors are streaming in nature and require a high rate of computation. Due to the characteristics of the automotive environment, this(More)
Multiprocessor architectures demand efficient interprocessor communication to maximize system utilization and performance. To meet future demands, these interconnects must communicate at significantly higher speeds while operating more efficiently to meet system size, weight, power, and energy requirements. As high-performance parallel computing(More)
A myriad of sensors (i.e., video, radar, laser, ultrasound, etc.) continuously monitoring the environment are incorporated in future automobiles. The algorithms processing the data captured by these sensors are streaming in nature and require high levels of processing power. Due to the characteristics of the automotive market, this processing power has to(More)
In wireless lan an important concern is channel utilization. IEEE 802.11e TGe propose transmission opportunity (TXOP) scheme with admission control method in which a staion is allowed to send a number of consecutive packets limited by the duration allocated and station accepts or rejects the flows on the basis of available resources. However its use is not(More)
The performance and hardware complexity of super-scalar architectures is hindered by conditional branch instructions. When conditional branches are encountered in a program, the instruction fetch unit must rapidly predict the branch predicate and begin speculatively fetching instructions with no loss of instruction throughput. Speculative execution has a(More)
