    • A Bandwidth-Efficient Architecture for Media Processing 

      Rixner, Scott; Dally, William J.; Kapasi, Ujval J.; Khailany, Brucek; Lopez-Lagunas, Abelardo; Mattson, Peter; Owens, John D. (1998-11-20)
      Media applications are characterized by large amounts of available parallelism, little data reuse, and a high computation to memory access ratio. While these characteristics are poorly matched to conventional microprocessor ...
    • Imagine: Media Processing with Streams 

      Khailany, Brucek; Dally, William J.; Kapasi, Ujval J.; Mattson, Peter; Namkoong, Jinyung; Owens, John D.; Towles, Brian; Chang, Andrew; Rixner, Scott (2001-03-20)
      The Power-efficient Imagine stream processor achieves performance densities comparable to those of special-purpose embedded processors. Executing programs mapped to streams and kernels, a single Imagine processor is expected ...
    • Programmable Stream Processors 

      Kapasi, Ujval J.; Rixner, Scott; Dally, William J.; Khailany, Brucek; Ahn, Jung Ho; Mattson, Peter; Owens, John D. (2003-08-20)
      Stream processing promises to bridge the gap between inflexible special-purpose solutions and current programmable architectures that cannot meet the computational demands of media-processing applications.
    • Register Organization for Media Processing 

      Rixner, Scott; Dally, William J.; Khailany, Brucek; Mattson, Peter; Kapasi, Ujval J.; Owens, John D. (2000-01-20)
      Processor architectures with tens to hundreds of arithmetic units are emerging to handle media processing applications. These applications, such as image coding, image synthesis, and image understanding, require arithmetic ...
