  1. 1. Reducing Memory Traffic with Approximate Compression

    Författare :Albin Eldstål-Ahrens; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Memory Compression; Memory Systems; Compression; Computer Architecture; Lossy Compression; Approximate Computing;

    Sammanfattning : Memory bandwidth is a critical resource in modern systems and has an increasing demand. The large number of on-chip cores and specialized accelerators improves the potential processing throughput but also calls for higher data rates. In addition, new emerging data-intensive applications further increase memory traffic. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : In the past two decades, FPGA has been witnessed from its restricted use as glue logic towards real System-on-Chip (SoC) platforms. Profiting from the great development on semiconductor and IC technologies, the programmability of FPGAs enables themselves wide adoption in all kinds of aspects of embedded designs. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Approximate Dynamic Programming with Applications

    Författare :Andreas Wernrud; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis studies approximate optimal control of nonlinear systems. Particular attention is given to global solutions and to the computation of approximately optimal feedback controllers. The solution to an optimal control problem is characterized by the optimal value function. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Approximation and Compression Techniques to Enhance Performance of Graphics Processing Units

    Författare :Alexandra Angerd; Chalmers University of Technology; []
