This paper presents an 8.69 Mvertices/s, 278 Mpixels/s, 15.7 mm<sup>2</sup> tiled-based 3D graphics SoC HW/SW supporting OpenGL ES 1.0 running at 139 MHz. The SoC also includes embedded circuitry to monitor run time characteristics, detect bus protocol error/inefficiency, and capture bus traces at various abstraction levels with compression ratio up to 98%.
individually and shorten the verification time during SoC integration. In this paper, we will introduce the implemented environment of 3DG SoC and elucidate significance and necessary of proposed method. For the convenience of verification, the analyzing tool that we have developed contains the functions of displaying frame results, comparing different… (More)
This paper presents an embedded debugging/performance monitoring engine (EDPME), which is capable of collect run time characteristics, detect AHB on-chip bus protocol error/inefficiency, and capture on-chip AHB bus traces at various abstraction levels with compression ratio up to 98% for a low cost tile-based 3D graphics SoC development.
OBJECTIVES To examine the risk of adverse effects of special interest in persons vaccinated against seasonal influenza compared with unvaccinated persons aged 65 and above. METHODS We retrospectively observed 41,986 vaccinated elderly persons and 50,973 unvaccinated elderly persons in Taiwan from October 1, 2008, through September 30, 2009, using the… (More)
This paper addresses the linehaul-feeder vehicle routing problem with virtual depots and time windows LFVRPTW. Small and large vehicles deliver services to customers within time constraints ; small vehicles en route may reload commodities from either the physical depot or from the larger vehicle at a virtual depot before continuing onward. A two-stage… (More)
In designing the portable embedded system, power consumption would be an important issue. Numerous prior issues of power dissipation have been discussed, and there are fewer functions (such as power measurement, power analysis, and power management) supporting for a SoC embedded system development learning board. In order to help designer to get power… (More)
This work proposes a test function to study overlapping. The test function provides full controllability over overlapping. To achieve full controllability, the building block assigning problem is reduced to a bipartite matching problem which allow us to directly assign extent of overlapping to each gene. At the end, an experiment on overlapping shows that… (More)
Borrelia garinii spirochete was detected for the first time in Ixodes ovatus tick ectoparasitized on stray cat in Taiwan. The genetic identity of this detected spirochete was determined by analyzing the gene sequence amplified by genospecies-specific polymerase chain reaction assays based on the 5S-23S intergenic spacer amplicon (rrf-rrl) and outer surface… (More)
This work proposes a linkage-learning niching method that improves the capability of estimation of distribution algorithms (EDAs) on reducing spurious linkages which increase problems difficulty. Concatenated parity function (CPF), a class of allelic pairwise independent problems, causes exponential scalability for hierarchical Bayesian optimization… (More)
