Executing functional components in pipeline on heterogeneous multi-core platforms can greatly improve the parallelism but require great amount of data communication among processes and threads. Our studies showed that existing inter-process/thread communication protocols consist of many unnecessary memory copies and prolong the execution of the applications(More)
This study investigates an advanced copper (Cu) chemical displacement technique (CDT) with varying the chemical displacement time for fabricating Cu/SiO2-stacked resistive random-access memory (ReRAM). Compared with other Cu deposition methods, this CDT easily controls the interface of the Cu-insulator, the switching layer thickness, and the immunity of the(More)
In this paper, we demonstrated the shallow NiSiGe Schottky junction on the SiGe P-channel by using low-temperature microwave annealing. The NiSiGe/n-Si Schottky junction was formed for the Si-capped/SiGe multi-layer structure on an n-Si substrate (Si/Si 0.57 Ge 0.43 /Si) through microwave annealing (MWA) ranging from 200 to 470 ˝ C for 150 s in N 2 ambient.(More)
This paper presents a voltage frequency conversion system with Digital Signal Processor (DSP). The digital control is used to achieve the variable frequency control. The topology of the proposed system is two-stage converter, where the first stage is a power factor correction (PFC) circuit and the second stage is a single-phase full-bridge inverter circuit.(More)
This paper presents a novel TaN-Al2O3-HfSiOx-SiO2-silicon (TAHOS) nonvolatile memory (NVM) design with dipole engineering at the HfSiOx/SiO2 interface. The threshold voltage shift achieved by using dipole engineering could enable work function adjustment for NVM devices. The dipole layer at the tunnel oxide–charge storage layer interface increases the(More)
Aluminum oxide (AlO x) and plasma immersion ion implantation (PIII) were studied in relation to passivated silicon heterojunction solar cells. When aluminum oxide (AlO x) was deposited on the surface of a wafer; the electric field near the surface of wafer was enhanced; and the mobility of the carrier was improved; thus reducing carrier traps associated(More)
In wireless mobile environments, the bandwidth and client capability are limited. Data broadcasting is an efficient and scalable method to disseminate information to a large amount of mobile clients. In recent years, several research has engaged in scheduling dependent data on multiple broadcast channels. However, most of the previous research focused on(More)
