The Ambric Massively Parallel Processor Array (MPPA) is a device that contains 336 32-bit RISC processors and is appropriate for embedded systems due to its relatively small physical and power footprint. Optical flow is a computationally-demanding and highly parallelizeable image-processing algorithm with applications in embedded systems such as robotics(More)

A great deal of popular attention has been given to the Mozart effect—an increase in spatial ability following listening to Mozart. Three hypotheses have been advanced to explain this association: Mozart priming the neural pathways used for spatial reasoning, Mozart generally increasing mood and arousal and thus performance, or individuals' preference for(More)
Process modeling is a complex organizational task that requires many iterations and communication between the business analysts and the domain specialists involved in the process modeling. The challenge of process modeling is exacerbated, when the process of modeling has to be performed in a cross-organizational, distributed environment. Some systems have(More)
A simple image-processing application is implemented on the Ambric MPPA and an FPGA, using a similar implementation for both devices. FPGAs perform extremely well on this kind of application and provide a good benchmark for comparison. The Ambric implementation starts out with a naive implementation and proceeds through several design optimizations until it(More)
