Future many-core processors will require high-performance yet energy-efficient on-chip networks to provide a communication substrate for the increasing number of cores. Recent advances in silicon nanophotonics create new opportunities for on-chip networks. To efficiently exploit the benefits of nanophotonics, we propose Firefly - a hybrid, hierarchical(More)
—As data sizes continue to increase, the concept of active storage is well fitted for many data analysis kernels. Nevertheless, while this concept has been investigated and deployed in a number of forms, enabling it from the parallel I/O software stack has been largely unexplored. In this paper, we propose and evaluate an active storage system that allows(More)
Direct and residual toxicity of NeemAzal-T/S (azadirachtin), Success (spinosad), and abamectin was tested against different life stages of sweetpotato whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae), under air-conditioned laboratory conditions and in a tropical net greenhouse. NeemAzal-T/S and abamectin deterred the settling of adults on(More)
Different antioxidants and salicylic acid were tested to overcome pericarp browning and to maintain the postharvest quality of the litchi fruits at ambient storage. It was found that 0.5% salicylic acid, 1% isoascorbic acid and 1% N-acetyl cysteine performed better over sulphur dioxide (SO2) fumigation for most of the parameters under study. Application of(More)
Induction of HSPs is a natural response of stressed cells that protects against many insults including acute ischemia. TRC051384, a novel compound belonging to substituted 2-propen-1-one class is a potent inducer of heat shock protein 70 (HSP70). The aim of this study was to investigate the ability of TRC051384 in reducing neuronal injury and disability(More)
Sharing on-chip network resources efficiently is critical in the design of a cost-efficient network on-chip (NoC). Concentration has been proposed for on-chip networks but the trade-off in concentration implementation and performance has not been well understood. In this paper, we describe cost-efficient implementations of concentration and show how(More)
Increasing power densities due to process scaling, combined with high switching activity and poor cooling environments during testing, have the potential to result in high integrated circuit (IC) temperatures. This has the potential to damage ICs and cause good ICs to be discarded due to temperature-induced timing faults. We first study the power impact of(More)
With the unstoppable growth in data collection, data mining is playing an important role in the way massive data sets are analyzed. Trends clearly indicate that future decision making systems would weigh on even quicker and more reliable models used for data analysis. In order to achieve this, current algorithms and computing systems have to be optimized(More)
The exponential increase in the generation and collection of data has led us in a new era of data analysis and information extraction. Conventional systems based on general-purpose processors are unable to keep pace with the heavy computational requirements of data mining techniques. High performance co-processors like GPUs and FPGAs have the potential to(More)
