An FSM Re-Engineering Approach to Sequential Circuit Synthesis by State Splitting
We propose Finite State Machine (FSM) re-engineering, a performance enhancement framework for FSM synthesis and optimization. It starts with the traditional FSM synthesis procedure, then proceeds to re-construct a ...
Design Space Exploration for Energy-Efficient Secure Sensor Network
We consider two of the most important design issues for distributed sensor networks in the battlefield: security for communication in such hostile terrain; and energy efficiency because of battery’s limited capacity and ...
Energy Reduction Techniques for Multimedia Applications with Tolerance to Deadline Misses
Many embedded systems such as PDAs require processing of the given applications with rigid power budget. However, they are able to tolerate occasional failures due to the imperfect human visual/auditory systems. The ...
Techniques for Energy Minimization of Communication Pipelines
The performance of many modern computer and communication systems is dictated by latency of communication pipelines. At the same time, power consumption is often another limiting factor in many portable systems. We ...
A New Quality of Service Metric for Hard/Soft Real-Time Applications
Real-time applications often have mixed hard and soft deadlines, can be preempted subject to the cost of context switching or the restart of computation, and have various data dependency. The simple but widely used task ...
Analysis of Watermarking Techniques for Graph Coloring Problem
System Synthesis of Synchronous Multimedia Applications
Modern system design is being increasingly driven by applications such as multimedia and wireless sensing and communications, which all have intrinsic quality of service (QoS) requirements, such as throughput, error-rate, ...
Power Optimization of Variable-Voltage Core-Based Systems
The growing class of portable systems, such as personal computing and communication devices, has resulted in a new set of system design requirements, mainly characterized by dominant importance of power minimization and ...
QoP-Driven Scheduling for MPEG Video Decoding
MPEG video decoding algorithm has been embedded into many consumer electronic products. In this paper, we demonstrate that the completion ratio (CR) does not represent well the quality of presentation (QoP) of MPEG ...
Quality of Service and System Design
Quality of Service (QoS) of the implementation of an application can be defined as a function of the properties of the application and its implementation as observed by the user and/or the environment. Typical application ...
