—Mobile sinks (MSs) are vital in many wireless sensor network (WSN) applications for efficient data accumulation, localized sensor reprogramming, and for distinguishing and revoking compromised sensors. However, in sensor networks that make use of the existing key predistribution schemes for pairwise key establishment and authentication between sensor nodes(More)
—In multimode distributed systems, active task sets are assigned to their distributed components for realizing one or more functions. Many of these systems encounter runtime task variations at the input and across the system while processing their tasks in real time. Very few efforts have been made to address energy efficient scheduling in these types of(More)
In recent literature it has been reported that Dynamic Power Management (DPM) may lead to decreased reliability in real-time embedded systems. The ever-shrinking device sizes contribute further to this problem. In this paper, we present a reliability aware power management algorithm that aims at reducing energy consumption while preserving the overall(More)
The sustained progress of VLSI technology has altered the landscape of routing which is a major physical design stage. For timing driven routings, traditional approaches which consider only wire self capacitance become inadequate since the wire delay is affected more by coupling capacitance in ultra-deep submicron designs. Furthermore, the technology(More)
IP address lookup at the router is a complex problem. This has been primarily due to the increasing table sizes, growth in traffic rate and high link capacities. In this work we have proposed an algorithm for fast routing lookup with reduced memory utilization and access time. This approach shows significant performance improvement in the average case and(More)
— Several challenges in the IP lookup architecture must be addressed for a high-speed forwarding in a large scale routing table: power, memory, and lookup complexity. Hash-based architectures have lookup schemes that are recognized for being both power and memory efficient due to their O(1) lookup, in contrast to other contemporary architectures. In this(More)
—Ternary Content Addressable Memories (TCAMs) have been emerging as a popular device in designing routers for packet forwarding and classifications. Despite their premise on high-throughput, large TCAM arrays are prohibitive due to their excessive power consumption and lack of scalable design schemes. This paper presents a TCAM-based router architecture(More)
