—Task scheduling and core mapping have a significant impact on the overall performance of network on chip (NOC). In this paper, a unified task scheduling and core mapping algorithm called UNISM is proposed for different NOC architectures including regular mesh, irregular mesh and custom networks. First, a unified model combining scheduling and mapping is(More)
In this paper, we present a partitioning, mapping, and routing optimization framework for energy-efficient VFI (Voltage-Frequency Island) based Network-on-Chip. Unlike the recent work [10] which only performs partitioning together with voltage-frequency assignment for a given mesh network layout, our framework consists of three key VFI-aware components,(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel and global A3MAP (Architecture-Aware Analytic Mapping) algorithm applied to NoC (Networks-on-Chip) based MPSoC (Multi-Processor System-on-Chip) not only with homogeneous cores on regular mesh architecture as done by most previous mapping algorithms but also with heterogeneous cores on irregular mesh or custom architecture.(More)
A novel method for in vitro calibration of skin hydration measurements is presented. The method combines gravimetric and electrical measurements and reveals an exponential dependency of measured electrical susceptance to absolute water content in the epidermal stratum corneum. The results also show that absorption of water into the stratum corneum exhibits(More)
In this paper, we present an NoC (Networks-on-Chip) router with an SDRAM-aware flow control. Based on a priority-based arbitration, it schedules packets to improve memory utilization and reduce memory latency. Moreover, our multi-scheduling scheme performed by the multiple SDRAM-aware routers helps to achieve better SDRAM performance and save the hardware(More)
Dopamine transporter scans of some patients who have been clinically diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD) fail to reveal abnormal dopaminergic functioning and are referred to as scans without evidence of dopaminergic deficits (SWEDDs). In this study, we investigated the differences between SWEDDs patients and PD patients using(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Dysregulation of the autophagy pathway has been suggested as an important mechanism in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD). Therefore, modulation of autophagy may be a novel strategy for the treatment of PD. Recently, an active form of vitamin D₃ has been reported to have neuroprotective properties. Therefore, we(More)
We report on an approach to exploit multiple light scattering by shaping the incident wavefront in optical coherence tomography (OCT). Most of the reflected signal from biological tissue consists of multiply scattered light, which is regarded as noise in OCT. A digital mirror device (DMD) is utilized to shape the incident wavefront such that the maximal(More)
Dysphagia is an important issue in the prognosis of Parkinson's disease (PD). Although several studies have reported that oropharyngeal dysphagia may be associated with cognitive dysfunction, the exact relationship between cortical function and swallowing function in PD patients is unclear. Therefore, we investigated the association between an(More)
