To optimize the exploitation of oil and gas reservoirs both on- and offshore, Biodentfiy has developed a method to predict prospectivity of hydrocarbons before drilling. This method uses microbiological DNA analysis of shallow soil or seabed samples to detect vertical upward microseepage from hydrocarbon accumulations, which change the...

This thesis project achieves designing and comparing two parallel implementations for exhaustive grid search along a large model space to find the optimum mapping model for overlay predictions used in ASML lithography machines. The search algorithm leads to an effectively intractable problem as long as sequential implementation is concerned, but...

Many alternative computer architectures that use emerging devices are under investigation to address the challenges current architectures and technologies face. Computation-in-memory (CIM) architectures are one among these alternative that tries to solve these challenges by performing computations in the memory structure as opposed to...

The last years there is a wide interest in UAVs which can be attributed to their low cost and wide range of use in recreational, commercial and scientific applications. Despite the large increase in drones, UAV flights are permitted only in secluded areas. In order to be granted access to public areas, it must prove its capacity to sense and...

The Smith Waterman algorithm is used to perform local alignment on biological sequences by calculating a similarity matrix. This process is computation-intensive. Only the elements along the minor diagonal of the matrix can be calculated in parallel, due to the nature of dependencies present in the algorithm. In the past, CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs...

In recent years, Quantum Computing has gone from theory to a promising reality, leading to quantum chips that in a near future might be able to exceed the computational power of any current supercomputer. For this to happen, there are some problems that must be overcome. For example, in a quantum processor qubits are usually arranged in a 2D...

With the advent of high-bandwidth non-volatile storage devices, the classical assumption that database analytics applications are bottlenecked by CPUs having to wait for slow I/O devices is being flipped around. Instead, CPUs are no longer able to decompress and deserialize the data stored in storage-focused file formats fast enough to keep up...

Modular exponentiation is the basis needed to perform RSA encryption and decryption. Execution of 4096-bit modular exponentiation using an embedded system requires many arithmetic operations. This work aims to improve the performance of modular exponentiation for an existing FPGA platform containing a soft core RISC-V processor. The solution is...

The goal of this thesis is the design and development of the QuTech Central Controller, a system conceived to serve as the hardware/software interface of a quantum computer. This system represents an evolution of the QuMA microarchitecture to control a Surface-17 superconducting quantum processor, even though several architectural mechanisms are...

The last years, there has been a increasing trend in embedded system and FPGA im-plementations for greater flexibility and also, a rising adaptation of heterogeneous plat-forms. These platforms often include FPGAs and embedded cores side by side.ρ-VEXcore, developed and maintained by the Computer Engineering group of TU Delft, is aVLIW processor...

DTB Multiplexer is a component within an NXP chip called the BAP3. This component provides a testing functionality for the chip. This component is purely combinational, and requires no clock, however this makes the component wiring-costly. This high wiring requirement leads to the area constraint imposed by the wiring demand rather than cell...

Current brain simulators do no scale linearly to realistic problem sizes (e.g. >100,000 neurons), which makes them impractical for researchers. The goal of the thesis is to explore the use of true multi-GPU acceleration on computationally challenging brain models and to assess the scalability of such models given sufficient access to multi...

In order to improve the ability to design digital ICs for cryogenic temperatures, the objective of this work is to characterize the timing performance of standard cells in the TSMC 40nm technology at a temperature range between 4K and 300K. A design was made to perform automated on-chip characterization of standard cell propagation delay, that...

If a practical quantum computer is to be built, it will not only need quantum programming languages and qubits, but hardware-software interfaces as well. These interfaces, also known as computer (micro)architectures are the key to creating a ’quantum stack’, where a programmer can directly execute programs onto quantum hardware. A functional...

Third generation sequencing machines produce reads with tens of thousands of base pairs.<br/>To perform de novo assembly, all reads must be compared with every other read to find overlaps.<br/>Finding overlaps with the optimal Smith-Waterman is not feasible, since the complexity of Smith-Waterman is quadratic with the length of the reads.<br/...

The trend of computing faster and more efficiently has been a driver for the computing industry since its beginning. However, it is increasingly difficult to continue this trend because current CMOS technology cannot be down-scaled anymore due to physical restrictions. Consequently, to obtain the next major performance improvement, the focus is...

Nowadays, indoor ranging and localization have become necessary in daily life. Due to the multi-path propagation and noise in the indoor environment, phase domain ranging method using multi-frequency has been proposed which achieves accurate estimation of indoor target. However, as the indoor communication is usually carried on Bluetooth Low...

Due to their large number of high-precision, defect-prone manufacturing steps, integrated circuits (ICs) are susceptible to manufacturing defects and hence need to undergo electrical tests to weed out the defective parts and guarantee sufficient outgoing product quality to the customer. A key step in test development for digital logic ICs is...
