Training: an inhibitor of innovation in the automotive supply chain?
Have training programmes become the new Taylorism: allowing OEMs to exercise control over their smaller suppliers and unconsciously preventing these SMEs from innovating, diversifying and growing to become competitive ...
An Efficient Mode Decision Algorithm Based on Dynamic Grouping and Adaptive Adjustment for H.264/AVC
The rate distortion optimization (RDO) enabled mode decision (MD) is one of the most important techniques introduced by H.264/AVC. By adopting the exhaustive calculation of rate distortion, the optimal MD enhances the video ...
Intelligent co-operative processor-in-memory
Advances in VLSI technology are enabling the processor-memory integration to bridge the processor-memory performance gap. It is also a key driver in the innovation of a new concept called Processor-In-Memory (PIM). The ...
Floating-Point Matrix Product on FPGA
A general framework for efficient FPGA implementation of matrix product
High performance systems are required by the developers for fast processing of computationally intensive applications. Reconfigurable hardware devices in the form of Filed-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have been proposed ...
A novel fast inter mode decision algorithm based on statistic and adaptive adjustment for H.264/AVC
The advanced video coding (AVC) standard H.264 achieves better video compression performance compared with the previous standards, and one of major features is variable block sizes based mode decision (MD). However, the ...
A CMOS fifth-order 400MHz current-mode LF linear phase filter for hard disk read channels
A 400 MHz CMOS fifth-order linear phase gm-c filter based on current-mode (CM) leapfrog (LF) structure is realized. The filter is implemented using a fully-differential linear operational transconductance amplifier (OTA) ...
Design of a fourth-order continuous-time filter for UWB receivers
The design and implementation of a CMOS current- mode fourth-order Butterworth continuous-time leap-frog (LF) multiple loop feedback (MLF) lowpass filter is described. The filter is implemented using a fully-differential ...
Business process re-engineering using a customised mapping model: a case study in a SME
Increasing customer expectations in terms of cost, quality and services, together with competition in global markets has placed a premium on effective internal business processes. Companies are investing to streamline ...
