Improving GPU SIMD Control Flow Efficiency via Hybrid Warp Size Mechanism
High single instruction multiple data (SIMD) efficiency and low power consumption have made graphic processing units (GPUs) an ideal platform for many complex computational applications. Thousands of threads can be created ...
Study of Single-Event Transient Effects on Analog Circuits
Radiation in space is potentially hazardous to microelectronic circuits and systems such as spacecraft electronics. Transient effects on circuits and systems from high energetic particles can interrupt electronics operation ...
Power Allocation in Wireless Relay Networks
This thesis is mainly concerned with power allocation issues in wireless relay networks where a single or multiple relays assist transmission from a single or multiple sources to a destination. First, a network model with ...
Design and Implementation of a Radix-100 Division Unit
In this thesis, a novel radix-100 divider is designed and implemented. The proposed divider is 3% faster then the current decimal dividers.
DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN EFFICIENT IMAGE COMPRESSOR FOR WIRELESS CAPSULE ENDOSCOPY
Capsule endoscope (CE) is a diagnosis tool for gastrointestinal (GI) diseases. Area and power are the two important parameters for the components used in CE. To optimize these two parameters, an efficient image compressor ...
Channel Estimation in Coded Modulation Systems
With the outstanding performance of coded modulation techniques in fading channels, much research efforts have been carried out on the design of communication systems able to operate at low signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). ...
Peak-to-Average Power Ratio Reduction of DOCSIS 3.1 Downstream Signals
Tone reservation (TR) is an attractive and widely used method for peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signals, where both transmitter and receiver agree upon a ...
Optimizing Techniques and Cramer-Rao Bound for Passive Source Location Estimation
This work is motivated by the problem of locating potential unstable areas in underground potash mines with better accuracy more consistently while introducing minimum extra computational load. It is important for both ...
ELECTRIC DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM RISK ASSESSMENT USING RELIABILITY INDEX PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS
This thesis describes research conducted III the area of electric power distribution system adequacy assessment. The objectives of this research work were to examine the utilization of reliability index probability ...
A CASE-BASED INTELLIGENT TRAINING AGENT WITH AN APPLICATION TO POWER SYSTEM RESTORATION
A speedy restoration of a power system can minimize the consequences of a total or partial blackout. Due to the increase in system reliability, major disturbances occur less frequently and consequently system operators ...
