    This paper presents the design and analysis of multimedia applications such as the JPEG encoder on multiprocessor architectures. Abstract clocks are considered to deal with the correctness of system behaviors and to find the most suitable execution platform configurations regarding performance and energy consumption. Our approach offers a rapid and reliable design space analysis, which is crucial ... View full abstract»

    Dramatic increases in embedded data processing performance are becoming possible using platforms such as the NASA SpaceCube. With a flexible architecture and commercial devices, selected computations can be tuned for the highest performance while giving up perfect data reliability. More needs to be known about the nature of silent data corruption in this paradigm. When it occurs, how pervasive is ... View full abstract»

    Technology scaling has led to significant variability in chip performance and power consumption. In this work, we measured and analyzed the power variability in dynamic random access memories (DRAMs). We tested 22 double date rate third generation (DDR3) dual inline memory modules (DIMMs), and found that power usage in DRAMs depends on both operation type (write, read, and idle) as well as data, w...

    In Networks-on-Chip (NoC), with ever-increasing design complexity and technology scaling, soft errors have become a key design challenge. In this work, we extend the concept of architectural vulnerability factor (AVF) from the microprocessor domain and propose a network vulnerability factor (NVF) to characterize the susceptibility of Network Interfaces (NIs) to soft errors. For the first time, a d... View full abstract»

    Preemption techniques for hardware (HW) tasks have been studied in order to improve system responsiveness at the task level and improve utilization of the FPGA area. This letter presents a fair comparison of existing state-of-the-art preemption approaches from the point of view of their capabilities and limitations as well as impact on static and dynamic properties of the task. In comparison, we u... View full abstract»

    Background modeling and foreground object detection are crucial techniques for embedded image surveillance systems. The most popular and accurate methods are mostly pixel based, taking up more memory and requiring longer execution times. Thus, these techniques are not suitable for embedded platforms. This paper presents a block-based major color background modeling and a foreground detection algor... View full abstract»
