Modern complex embedded applications inmultiple application fields impose stringent and continuously increasing functional and parametric demands. To adequately serve these applications, massively parallel multi-processor systems on a single chip (MPSoCs) are required. This paper is devoted to the design of scalable communication architectures of massively(More)
BACKGROUND Suboptimal management of asthma by general practitioners (GPs) can lead to poor health outcomes AIMS To assess the management of common asthma presentations by GPs using the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) guidelines as a comparative tool. METHODS A cross-sectional survey was conducted in Karachi, Pakistan. Of 250 GPs approached, 192(More)
The demands for high quality, real-time performance and multi-format video support in consumer multimedia products are ever increasing. In particular, the future multimedia systems require efficient video coding algorithms and corresponding adaptive high-performance computational platforms. The H.264/AVC video coding algorithms provide high enough(More)
This paper focuses on mastering the architecture development of reconfigurable hardware accelerators for highly demanding applications. It presents the results of our analysis of the main issues that have to be addressed when designing accelerators for demanding applications, when using as an example the accelerator design for LDPC decoding for the newest(More)
