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)
—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)
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)
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)
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 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)
BACKGROUND Numerous animal studies and clinical trials have demonstrated that erythropoietin (EPO) has therapeutic effects in ischemic and degenerative diseases. However, few clinical trials have investigated the effect of EPO in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. This study was an exploratory pilot study to investigate the effects of recombinant human EPO(More)
Recently, the effect of genetic variants in the Vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene on Parkinson's disease (PD) has gained interest. However, the precise relationship between VDR polymorphisms and PD remains unclear. In Korea, one study reported an association between VDR gene polymorphisms and PD. However, this study was conducted with a small sample size, and(More)
Cognitive deficits may contribute to falls in Parkinson's disease (PD) and these deficits may be risk factors for falls. However, their association with falls has been generally studied in patients with continuous gait problems. There have been few studies in PD patients without postural instability. In addition, the effectiveness of various simple bedside(More)
