Recently, computer architectures that combine a recong-urable (or retargetable) coprocessor with a general-purpose microprocessor have been proposed. These architectures are designed to exploit large amounts of ne grain par-allelism in applications. In this paper, we study the performance of the recongurable coprocessors on multimedia applications. We(More)
High-definition video applications, such as digital TV and digital video cameras, require high processing performance for high-quality visual images in addition to a complex video CODEC. Pre-/post processing to improve video quality is becoming much more important because requirements for Pre/post processing vary among applications and processing algorithms(More)
Soybean-derived phosphatidylserine (Soy-PS) is a phosphatidylserine made from soybean lecithin by enzymatic reaction with L-serine. A double-blind, randomized controlled study was conducted to investigate the effects of Soy-PS on the cognitive functions of the elderly Japanese subjects with memory complaints. Seventy-eight elderly people with mild cognitive(More)
—A single-chip MPEG-2 MP@ML codec, integrating 3.8M gates on a 72-mm 2 die, is described. The codec employs a heterogeneous multiprocessor architecture in which six microprocessors with the same instruction set but different customization execute specific tasks such as video and audio concurrently. The microprocessor, developed for digital media processing,(More)
