The power of one cent

What is the power of one cent? To answer this question, imagine that one cent doubles every day. As shown in the table, one cent after 9 days can buy you a coffee at $2.56. One cent, after 20 days, can buy a car at $5,242.88. One cent after 30Read More

PALACE AND CAMPANILE

A Trip Around the World with DWIGHT L. ELMENDORF, Lecturer and Traveler. Close beside the cathedral of St. Mark stands the square Campanile, the most prominent feature in all Venetian views. Standing 325 feet high, the Campanile always dominated the picturesque low stretch of Venice’s skyline and gave a peculiarRead More

ST. MARK’S

A Trip Around the World with DWIGHT L. ELMENDORF, Lecturer and Traveler. It is not the physical conditions alone that make Venice unique. In the beauty and interest of its domestic architecture it ranks before any city in the world. The mosaics of Venice have been famous for centuries, and areRead More

A Multiplication-Free Algorithm and A Parallel Architecture for Affine Transformation

Affine transformation is widely used in image processing. Recently, it is recommended by MPEG-4 for video motion compensation. This paper presents a novel low power parallel architecture for texture warping using affine transformation (AT). The architecture uses a novel multiplication-free algorithm that employs the algebraic properties of the AT. LowRead More

HOW IT CAME TO BE

  “A Trip Around the World with DWIGHT L. ELMENDORF, Lecturer and Traveler.” Venice is built on a group of little islands. At a depth of from ten to fifteen feet there is a firm bed of clay; below that a bed of sand or gravel, and then a layer ofRead More

System on Chip: the Future of System Integration

System on chip: The future of the integration paradigm Syste`me sur une puce: le futur du paradigme de l’inte ́gration Wael Badawy The increase in the number of transistors that can be integrated on a single chip allows the integration of more functions. On the other hand, time-to-market pressures requireRead More

Low power very large scale integration prototype for three-dimensional discrete wavelet transform processor with medical application

We present a low-power 3-D discrete wavelet transform processor for medical applications. The main focus is the compression of medical resonance image (MRI) data, although the system could be used as a generic compression chip. The architecture eliminates redundant filter banks by using a central control unit to dynamically adjustRead More
