SUMMARY This paper addresses the application of UML (Unified Modeling Language) in modeling digital systems based on the object oriented approach. The resulting UML diagrams are then used as the basis to generate a SystemC structure in transaction level, with automatic mapping of ports, channels and signals. Communication among modules are implemented(More)
Reading the contents of Web page with a small-screen device, such as a PDA or cell-phone, is still far from being a pleasant experience. Owing to the device limitations, current mobile browsers cannot handle all HTML tags, such as tables, for instance. Thus, most mobile browsers provide a linearized version of the source HTML page, leading to a large amount(More)
This paper presents a reconfigurable matrix VoC that can be applied to stereo vision computation. VoC accelerates block pixel matching by providing a highly parallel implementation of the sum of absolute differences metric. Reconfigurability allows VoC to deal with different block sizes, ranging from a single 7 times 7 SAD computation to 9 simultaneous 5(More)
A novel approach to the Boolean mapping problem is presented. It relies on a Boolean matching algorithm TF96], which may take advantage of don't care conditions. For area minimization, the comparison with the structural matching approach-used in SIS Tou90]-shows that the Boolean mapping achieve better results in similar computing time. We w i l l s h o w t(More)
A novel approach to the Boolean mapping problem is presented. It relies on a Boolean matching algorithm based on testing techniques. The matching is detected by checking the controllability and observability o f signals in the cell structure against the subject functions of the network. The method was implemented inside the SIS Tou90] synthesis environment.(More)
Fixed partial dentures cemented to dies of adjustable mobility were subjected to repeated impacts at three different sites. Immobile abutments retained their prostheses longer than mobile abutments. Impacts that fell between the centers of rotation of the abutments were withstood longer than impacts that fell nearer the ends of the prostheses. This study(More)
A type III gold alloy and six different ceramic surfaces were secured in an abrasion machine opposing extracted teeth to determine their relative abrasiveness and resistance to wear. The rankings of restorative materials from least abrasive to most abrasive were: gold alloy, polished; cast ceramic, polished; porcelain, polished; cast ceramic, polished and(More)
