Although recent research has suggested model predictive control as a promising solution for minimizing energy costs of commercial buildings, advanced control systems have not been widely deployed in practice. Large-scale implementations , including industrial complexes and university campuses, may contain thousands of air handler units each serving a(More)
Filtering noise in real-time image sequences is required in some applications like medical imaging. The optimum approach in this case is in the form of adaptive 3-D spatial-temporal filter, which is generally very complex and prohibitive for real-time implementation. Independent processing of the image sequences, in spatial and temporal domains can resolve(More)
Recent developments in the simulation capabilities of high level mathematical modeling tools have opened exciting new design flow possibilities. System level support for bit true modeling enables a designer to use a single environment to create floating and fixed-point models, and to make scaling and rounding decisions early in the design process. At the(More)
Traditional design and test of complex multimedia systems involves a large number of test vectors and is a difficult and time-consuming task. The simulation times are prohibitively long on current desktop computers. Driving actual design scenarios and timing burst behavior which produce real-time effects is difficult to do with current simulation(More)

Increasing resolutions push the throughput requirements of video codecs and complicate the challenges encountered during their cost-efficient implementations. We propose an FPGA implementation of a high-performance MPEG-4 simple profile video decoder, capable of parsing multiple bitstreams from different encoder sources. Its video pipeline architecture(More)
Multirate signal processing is an enabling technology that brings DSP techniques to applications requiring low-cost and high sample rates. Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) provide system-level hardware solutions for signal processing architects demanding both high-performance and flexibility. This workshop provides an introduction to the fundamental(More)
The increasing complexity of processing algorithms has lead to the need of more and more intensive specification and validation by means of software implementations. As the complexity grows, the intuitive understanding of the specific processing needs becomes harder. Hence, the architectural implementation choices or the choices between different possible(More)
