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)
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)
OBJECTIVES To estimate the prevalence of Danish RA patients currently on biologic monotherapy and compare the effectiveness and drug adherence of biologic therapies applied as monotherapy. METHODS All RA patients registered in the Danish biologics database (DANBIO) as receiving biologic DMARD (bDMARD) treatment as monotherapy without concomitant(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)
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)
Ever-growing needs of ubiquitous environment has further increased our dependence on sensors and sensor networks. Sensors are frequently being used for monitoring different phenomena of environment, Military, Health, Industry, Automobiles etc., and the information derived from sensed data are being used for making important decisions which directly affects(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)
