    Recent advances in the emerging memory technology magnetic RAM (MRAM) enrich the opportunities to build high density and low power embedded systems. One common way of utilizing MRAM is integrating it with conventional memories and distributing data to the appropriate type of memory to mitigate the high write penalty of MRAM. In this paper, we propose a software-based approach to identify data acce... View full abstract»

  • An Abstract Fault Model for NAND Flash Memory

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):86 - 89

    We present an abstract fault model for NAND flash memory that describes precisely the effects of various faults during a flash operation. The abstract model is intended to be used to reason about fault-related correctness of key modules of flash memory management software such as a flash translation layer (FTL). We also introduce the concept of “SAO-compliance” to raise awareness abo... View full abstract»

    This letter presents a virtual platform of solid-state disks (SSDs). Using a set of programming interfaces, users can quickly assemble an SSD based on their preferred flash chip organization and flash management algorithm, and a virtual disk then appears in the host system as a logical instance of the SSD. Unlike previous SSD simulation tools, this virtual disk performs block read/write with reali... View full abstract»

    One of the critical security threats to computer systems is the execution of malware or malicious software. Several intrusion detection systems have been proposed which perform detection analysis in the software using the audit files generated by the operating system. Software-based solutions to this problem are relatively slow, so these techniques can be used forensically, but not in real-time to... View full abstract»

  • An Oblivious Routing Algorithm for 3D Mesh Networks to Achieve a New Worst-Case Throughput Bound

    1/2 network capacity is often believed to be the limit of worst-case throughput for three-dimension (3D) mesh networks. However, this paper provides a new worst-case throughput bound, which is higher than 1/2 network capacity, for odd radix 3D mesh networks. In addition, we propose a routing algorithm called uniform solo-minimal (USM) routing that can achieve this new worst-case throughput bound i... View full abstract»

    Wireless embedded systems such as sensor nodes and smartphones highlight the importance of reliable data transmission in their advanced applications. Such reliable transmission frequently exhibits a performance below expectation due to inherent resource constraints of the systems. Accurate estimation of round trip time, an important parameter of reliable data transmission, has the potential to sig... View full abstract»

    Every year, and for five days, about three million pilgrims gather in the small city of Makkah, Saudi Arabia, to perform the rituals of Hajj (Pilgrimage). Tracking the movement of such a large number of people is crucial to the pilgrims themselves and the authorities managing the whole event. This letter reports a real-time pilgrim tracking system that has been designed and implemented. The system... View full abstract»
