Sammanfattning : Computers have become essential to everyday life as much as electricity, communications and transport. That is evident from the amount of electricity we spend to power our computing systems. According to some reports it is estimated to be ≈ 7% of the total consumption worldwide. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Different algorithms and architectures for inversion in finite extension fields are studied. The investigation is restricted to fields of characteristic two. Based on a simple transistor model, various architectures are compared with respect to delay, area requirement, and energy consumption. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Trellis decoding is a popular method to recover encoded information corrupted during transmission over a noisy channel. Prominent members of this class of decoding algorithms are the Viterbi algorithm, which provides maximum likelihood estimates, and the BCJR algorithm, which is a maximum a posteriori estimator commonly used in iterative decoding.

Sammanfattning : While the clock speed of general purpose (uni-)processors has risen dramatically during recent years, this is not true for SIMD (Single Instruction stream Multiple Data streams) parallel processors. The reason is to be found in the structure of this type of architecture: long-range broadcasting of data, clock and control signals. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The goals set by the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) for the consumer portable category, to be realized by 2020, are 1000X improvement in performance with only 40\% increase in power budget and no increase in design team size. To meet these goals, the challenges facing the VLSI community are gaps in architecture efficacy, design productivity and battery capacity. LÄS MER
