  • 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.
  • 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 ...
  • Memory Access Scheduling 

    Rixner, Scott; Dally, William J.; Kapasi, Ujval J.; Mattson, Peter; Owens, John D. (2000-06-20)
    The bandwidth and latency of a memory system are strongly dependent on the manner in which accesses interact with the "3-D" structure of banks, rows, and columns characteristic of contemporary DRAM chips. There is nearly ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
