As the subscriber number of 3G cellular network escalates, the era of 3G has arrived. Due to the specific network architecture and features, 3G wireless network become susceptible target of new Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks, such as paging attack and signaling attack via (Radio Access Bearer) RAB establishment/release. In this paper, we introduce a(More)
Power consumption and battery life constrain the developments of the mobile platforms. Among the mobile applications, games are the most demanding applications in terms of both computational cost and consumed energy. The power consumption spent on GPU to accelerate the rendering speed keeps increasing rapidly. Most of the GPU power saving techniques using(More)
Machine Learning (ML) techniques are pervasive tools in various emerging commercial applications, but have to be accommodated by powerful computer systems to process very large data. Although general-purpose CPUs and GPUs have provided straightforward solutions, their energy-efficiencies are limited due to their excessive supports for flexibility. Hardware(More)
Flash Memory is a desirable candidate for main memory replacement in embedded systems due to its low leakage power consumption, higher density and non-volatility characteristics. There are two challenges in applying flash memory as main memory. First, the write operations are much slower than read operations. Second, the lifetime of flash memory depends on(More)
— In this paper, we present a Smart Grid Home Area Network communication infrastructure solution that is based on future next generation heterogeneous wireless systems. The heterogeneous wireless system is composed of several Radio Access Technologies (RATs) available at consumer premises. The smart devices that use Smart Grid applications are assumed to(More)
NAND flash memory has been widely adopted in embedded systems as secondary storage. Yet the further development of flash memory strongly hinges on the tackling of its inherent implausible characteristics, including read and write speed asymmetry, inability of in-place update, and performance harmful erase operations. While Write Buffer Cache (WBC) has been(More)
Flash memory is becoming the storage media of choice for mobile devices and embedded systems. The performance of flash memory is impacted by the asymmetric speed of read and write operations, limited number of erase times and the absence of in-place updates. To improve the performance of flash memory based systems, write buffer cache has been equipped in(More)
