    The main objective of this letter is to present the design of an efficient, real-time data archival system to a secure digital flash memory card via reconfigurable hardware. The data access from the SD card is implemented completely using Verilog and hence, there is no use of any microcontroller or on-chip general purpose processors. And since the complete design is a single-purpose system, no ext... View full abstract»

    Solid-state drives (SSDs) utilize parallel architectures to improve their IO throughput. Although log buffer based flash translation layers (FTLs) are widely employed in SSDs, little has been addressed on the issue of placing pages under a parallel architecture in such FTLs. In this letter, we evaluate three possible page placement policies and show that there is no best policy due to the tradeoff... View full abstract»

    Models of physical systems, such as of human physiology or of chemical reactions, are typically comprised of numerous ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Today's designers commonly consider simulating physical models utilizing field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). This letter introduces a resource efficient custom processor-the differential equation processing element, or DEPE-specifically d... View full abstract»

    Execution dependencies arise among the tasks of an embedded program due to issues such as task priority, task precedence, and intertask communication. We argue that execution dependencies among tasks need to be suitably considered in various embedded software engineering activities such as debugging, regression testing, and computation of complexity metrics. In this letter, we discuss how task exe... View full abstract»

    Design of current sensor network platforms has favored low power operation at the cost of communication throughput or range, which severely limits support for real-time monitoring applications with high throughput requirements. This letter presents the design of the versatile Opal platform that couples a Cortex M3 MCU with two IEEE 802.15.4 radios for supporting sensing applications with high tran... View full abstract»
