With the sequencing of DNA becoming cheaper and the resulting stack of data growing bigger, there is a big challenge for both engineer and biologist. Researchers are limited by their computational power. In this thesis, first an overview of sequence alignment algorithms will be given. Then a method to store the values of the similarity score...

Long-term prediction of sediment transport and morphology has become increasingly important. One of the key issues in carrying out long-term modeling is to bridge the gap between short-term hydrodynamics varying from hours to days, and morphological changes, taking place over much longer periods. Lesser et al. (2004) and Roelvink (2006) have...

In recent years the use of co-processors to accelerate specific tasks is becoming more common. To simplify the use of these accelerators in software, the OpenCL framework has been developed. This framework provides programs a cross-platform interface for using accelerators. The ?-VEX processor is a run-time reconfigurable VLIW processor. It...

Data analysis is a rising field of interest for computer science research due to the growing amount of information that is digitally available. This increase in data has as direct consequence that any analysis is significantly complex. By using structured representations for the data sets, like graphs, the analysis becomes feasible, but is still...

Electroencephalograph (EEG) is used in various applications such as diagnosing patients suffering from epilepsy or seizures. Motion artefact is the noise recorded together with the desired biopotential signals. It is mainly introduced by the relative motion between the measurement electrode and the human scalp. Dry electrodes are preferred in...

Static balancing is a technique to create static equilibrium in a mechanism for any configuration. Auxiliary links and many springs are usually added to achieve static balance for spatial parallel mechanisms. This increases inertia and complexity of the system. This paper first presents a theoretically perfect static balancing solution for a...

Dynamically reconfigurable architectures have demonstrated superior performance in comparison to the general-purpose processors. This thesis describes a generic approach for Dynamic Partial Reconfiguration (DPR) of a reconfigurable platform, connected to a general purpose system through a high-speed interconnect. Thus, the system can dynamically...

The drinking water treatment industry is becoming increasingly centralized and automated. This requires a different operator training approach then the traditional on the job training. To address this requirement a drinking water treatment plant simulator was developed. A major advantage of such a simulator might be that the normally very slow...

This master thesis describes the dynamical behaviour of a loudspeaker woofer and the modelling of it. By the use of the knowledge gained from the model, a feedback controller is implemented in order to enhance the woofer’s performance in terms of acoustic total harmonic distortion (THD) and low frequency bandwidth. The first objective of the...

This thesis presents a feasibility analysis for hardware acceleration of the pattern recognition algorithms used by the Media Knowledge Engineering department at the Delft University of Technology. The feasibility analysis is conducted on a number of different algorithm classes. The Parzen Window algorithm appeared to be the most suitable option...

With increasing velocities of trains, passenger comfort starts to play a larger role in the design of railway bridges. There is little experience with the Eurocode passenger comfort criterion in the Netherlands. It is relevant for the industry to have a way to fulfil this criterion, also in an early stage of railway bridge design. A sufficiently...

Over the past years, a considerable amount of effort has been devoted to the definition and implementation of techniques for the optimization and acceleration of applications on various computing platforms. Among these techniques, the extension of a given instruction-set architecture with custom instructions has become a common approach. Custom...

Image Processing is an emerging field: every year new applications are introduced, and these are pushing the hardware requirements. This thesis looks at the design of a hardware accelerator to accelerate several filters used in Image Processing: 2D Convolution, Census Transform, and Local Binary Patterns. At Intel, these filters are used for...

Investigation on Tile-Based Rasterization on Mobile Devices. External traffic on mobile devices is a major part of power consumption. We start with a critical evaluation of previous work on Tile-Based Rasterization where software was used to reduce external traffic. The added software is now killing the performance of the microprocessor. We...

Due to advancing technology, genetic sequencing has become cheaper over the years. This has caused the demand for computational power to grow even faster than Moore's law. To remedy this problem, we analyzed low-cost hardware solutions to parallelize the computational part of the genetic sequencing. We proposed a novel method for calculating the...

An increasing environmental concern and a growing interest of environmentally friendly and renewable materials is driving the growth of the bio-based composite sector. From 2010 to 2020, it is expected that the use of natural fibres as a reinforcement in composites will be doubled. Bio-based composites are already widely applied within the...

For the design of granular bed protections often a stability parameter is used. The stability parameter represents the forces that are acting on the stones and is used to predict the response of the bed to these forces. Existing parameters are often derived for a limited range of application. When the parameter is used outside this range, the...
