    Wideband spectrum in cognitive ultrawideband (UWB) is subjected to interference from licensed users although it consumes lower power. Wavelet packet transform is an alternative to Fourier transform with higher flexibility and spectrum utilization. In this paper, a wavelet packet-based transceiver is designed for cognitive UWB to improve robustness against interference from primary users. The propo... View full abstract»

    This paper considers blocking and scheduling for the design and implementation of field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based floating-point parallel matrix multiplication in the presence of a memory hierarchy. For high performance, on-chip memory holds data that are reused when the computation is divided into blocks, and multiple arithmetic units perform independent operations within each block in...

    Hardware transactional memory (HTM) offers a promising parallel programming model for chip multiprocessors. The performance aspect of HTMs has been explored extensively, whereas little research has addressed the power of HTMs. In this paper, we investigate power consumption in HTMs and propose two optimization techniques. The first optimization technique is adaptive snoop granularity (ASG). HTMs r... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a novel high-throughput very large scale integrated circuit architecture for a real-time implementation of intensity modulation direct detection optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing system is proposed, achieving the highest throughput reported to date. The proposed architecture utilizes a fast, pipelined, and parallel inverse fast Fourier transform/fast Fourier transfo... View full abstract»

    The objective of the software product line engineering paradigm is to enhance the largescale reuse of common core assets within a target domain. Reuse is facilitated by systematically organizing and modeling the core assets and the relationships between them. One of the main core assets of a domain is the model for representing the available functional aspects, often known as features, within stru... View full abstract»

    The copy-on-write update policy is a powerful technique for data protection. Unfortunately, it introduces a recursive update problem, which causes several side effects to a storage system, such as WRITE amplification and performance degradation. This paper elaborates on how these effects are introduced by recursive update and how serious they are. In order to evaluate these effects, an extended BT... View full abstract»
