This work presents a detailed case study in customizing a configurable, extensible, 32-bit RISC processor with vector/SIMD instruction extensions for the efficient execution of block-based video-coding algorithms utilizing a proprietary co-design environment. In addition to the default Full-Search motion estimation of the MPEG-2 Test Model 5, fourteen fast(More)
The exciting possibilities in the field of new quantum technologies extend far beyond the well-reported application of quantum computing. Precision timing, gravity sensors and imagers, cryptography, navigation, metrology, energy harvesting and recovery, biomedical sensors and imagers, and real-time optimisers all indicate the potential for quantum(More)
Electromigration driven void dynamics plays an important role in the reliability of copper interconnects; a proper understanding of which is made more difficult due to local variations in line microstructure. In simulations, the parameter which best incorporates these variations is the effective atomic diffusivity D eff which is sensitive to grain size and(More)
