  • Anti-knockoff article protection law

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):4 - 5
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (292 KB)

    IEEE-USA, the IEEE's US Activities Board, has proposed to Congress that it enact a new form of “anti-knockoff” intellectual property protection for “fast-moving technology”. The new form of intellectual property, which IEEE-USA calls “article protection”, would be a form of petty patent. Inventors and companies would get the protection simply by registering an a...

    Designed to accelerate multimedia and communications software, MMX technology improves performance by introducing data types and instructions to the IA that exploit the parallelism in these applications. MMX technology extends the Intel architecture (IA) to improve the performance of multimedia, communications, and other numeric-intensive applications. It uses a SIMD (single-instruction, multiple-...

    UltraSparc's Visual Instruction Set, described here in detail, accelerates some widely used media-processing algorithms by as much as seven times. Today's new media, increasingly sophisticated 3D graphics environments, videoconferencing, MPEG video playback, 3D visualization, image processing, and so on, demand enhancements to conventional RISC instruction sets, which were not originally designed ...

  • Fuzzy-logic-based analog design tools

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):60 - 68
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (684 KB)

    We have developed a collection of tools for the design, modeling, and test of analog circuits. Sharing a common fuzzy-logic based framework, the tools are part of FASY (Fuzzy-Logic-Based Analog Synthesis), an analog design package developed at the University of Seville. The first tool uses fuzzy logic for topology selection of analog cells. It follows decision rules directly entered by a human exp... View full abstract»

  • Subword parallelism with MAX-2

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):51 - 59
    Cited by:  Papers (160)  |  Patents (41)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1012 KB)

    MAX-2 illustrates how a small set of instruction extensions can provide subword parallelism to accelerate media processing and other data-parallel programs. This article proposes that subword parallelism-parallel computation on lower precision data packed into a word-is an efficient and effective solution for accelerating media processing. As an example, it describes MAX-2, a very lean, RISC-like ... View full abstract»

    The productivity paradox is not responsible for all the problems with computers. When all the evidence is in, there probably is almost no productivity paradox at all. The author discusses the arguments against the productivity paradox View full abstract»
