(c) A synthetic image of the same cloth, but applied with the BRDF captured from (a). (d) A synthetic image under another lighting condition. Abstract In order to create photorealistic(More)
—In recent years, the chip leakage power may be larger than the chip dynamic power because the semiconductor process technology progresses quickly. Therefore, leakage power reduction becomes an important issue for low power circuit designers. In this paper, we propose a heuristic cell replacement algorithm to reduce the leakage power of a logic design. The(More)
—Data hazards cause severe pipeline performance degradation for data-intensive computing processes. To improve the performance under a pessimistic assumption on the pipeline efficiency, a high-speed and energy-efficient VLSBM is proposed that successively performs a speculating and correcting phase. To reduce the critical path, the VLSBM partial products(More)
Because the leakage current of a digital circuit depends on the states of its logic gates, assigning a minimum leakage vector (MLV) to the primary inputs and the flip-flops' output pins of the circuit that operates in the sleep mode is a feasible technique for leakage current reduction. In this paper, we propose a novel probability-based algorithm and(More)
Traditionally, it is assumed that every variable in the input HDL (Hardware Description Language) behavioral description needs to be held in a register; A register can be shared by multiple variables if they have mutually disjoint lifetime intervals. This approach is effective for signal-flow-like computations such as various DSP algorithms. However, it is(More)
The purpose of this study was to understand how to use Augmented Virtuality (AV) to improve the training of intercollegiate archers and to understand the correlations among their levels of physical activity, health-related quality of life and archery performance in AV and 70M outdoor target archery competitions. The study employed cross-sectional study(More)
