Data-parallel digital signal processors: Algorithm mapping, architecture scaling and workload adaptation
Emerging applications such as high definition television (HDTV), streaming video, image processing in embedded applications and signal processing in high-speed wireless communications are driving a need for high performance ...
Phase transitions and diffusion of colloid-polymer systems and thin ferroelectric films for device applications
This thesis is divided into two independent parts: the first part deals with the phase transitions and diffusion of colloid-polymer systems, while the second part concerns the growth of thin ferroelectric films, their ...
Fine-grain producer-initiated communication in cache-coherent multiprocessors
Shared-memory multiprocessors are becoming increasingly popular as a high-performance, easy to program, and relatively inexpensive choice for parallel computation. However, the performance of shared-memory multiprocessors ...
Static analysis for circuit families
As predicted by Gordon Moore, the number of transistors on a chip has roughly doubled every two years. Microprocessors featuring over a billion transistors are no longer science fiction. For example, Intel's Itanium 9000 ...
Genetic algorithm tuning of a fuzzy logic controller for a dynamic system
This thesis describes the use of the genetic algorithm to facilitate the design process of a fuzzy logic based controller. The basic mechanics of both the fuzzy logic control system and the genetic algorithm are presented ...
A path planning and obstacle avoidance hybrid system using a connectionist network
Automated path planning and obstacle avoidance has been the subject of intensive research in recent times. Most efforts in the field of semiautonomous mobile-robotic navigation involve using Artificial Intelligence search ...
