An emerging trend in the field of Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) computing is the harnessing of multiple devices to cope with scalability and performance requirements. However, multi-GPU execution adds new challenges to the already complex world of General Purpose computing on GPUs (GPGPU), such as the efficient problem decomposition, and dealing with(More)
A coil design termed as broadside-coupled loop (BCL) coil and based on the broadside-coupled split ring resonator (BC-SRR) is proposed as an alternative to a conventional loop design at 7T. The BCL coil has an inherent uniform current which assures the rotational symmetry of the radio-frequency field around the coil axis. A comparative analysis of the(More)
