Although breast cancer occurs indiscriminately in countries with several degrees of social and economic development, among developing and underdevelopment countries mortality rates are still high due to low(More)
Mathematical Morphology is a theory of nonlinear processing extensively used in digital image processing. The computation effort, however, associated to Mathematical Morphology is usually large mainly because of high occurrence of conditional branches, due to use of intersection and union set operations. In terms of processing, it means the occurrence of(More)
According to theWorld Health Organization, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. It is the second leading cause of death among women around the world, becoming the most fatal form of cancer. However, to detect and classify masses is a hard task even for experts.

Cache memory is a usual architecture component, and has the function of increasing the system’s performance. Cache, however, may be responsible for a large part of energy consumption (about 50%) of microprocessors. Based on this, the paper proposes an automated architecture exploration mechanism based on parameter variation of a cache memory(More)
