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...

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.
To perform de novo assembly, all reads must be compared with every other read to find overlaps.
Finding overlaps with the optimal Smith-Waterman is not feasible, since the complexity of Smith-Waterman is quadratic with the length of the reads.

The automotive radars are significantly drifting towards the 77GHz electromagnetic spectrum band, and by 2020, they will no longer operate in the 24GHz band as per the regulations given by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in Europe and the U.S. With the communication systems...

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...

Processor architecture is continuously evolving. As the trend predicted by Moore's law is nearing its end, the focus of designing processors has shifted from high-frequency single-core systems to the medium frequency multicore system to a relatively lower frequency many-cores system, in the hope of extracting more performance while keeping power...

Machine learning methods are explored in an attempt to achieve better predictive performance than the legacy rule-based fraud detection systems that are currently used to detect fraudulent car insurance claims. There are two key principles that lead the exploration of machine learning techniques and algorithms in this thesis, namely, the...

Code review has been proved to be an extremely important practice to ensure softwarequality. In recent years, the trend has moved towards modern code review, a lightweight and less strict paradigm. Despite its many advantages, this approach still has room for further improvement, especially in the area of cognitive support for reviewers.

In this work, a possible solution to allow for scalable MATLAB deployment on big data clusters through Spark without using the official MATLAB toolbox is introduced. Other possible solutions that can be used for accelerating existing MATLAB code including calling modules written by Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and Python Pool with...

The international community firmly recognizes cyber-attacks as a serious fear that could endanger the global economy. The Global Risks 2015 report, published by the World Economic Forum, included this rather strong warning: “90 percent of companies worldwide recognize that they are insufficiently prepared to protect themselves against cyber...

Image processing is found in many fields and in many domains. Advances in
digital image capturing technology allows for faster video rates, of higher quality, than has been seen before and that trend continues. With greater resolution and increased data flow there is also a need for faster and better hardware for image processing. As the...

A new class of accelerator interfaces has signi cant implications on system architecture. An order of magnitude more bandwidth forces us to reconsider FPGA design. OpenCAPI is a new interconnect standard that enables attaching FPGAs coherently to a high-bandwidth, low- latency interface. Keeping up with this bandwidth poses new challenges for...

DNA carries all the information needed to define the genetic structure of an individual. The large amounts of information stored in the DNA makes it costly to store and to process. In this work, a fast and efficient implementation of a Field Programmable GateArray (FPGA) based, streaming multicore architecture for accelerating variant calling...

A framework is introduced for computations with transformations on immutable data. Inspiration is taken from Apache Spark, however the model of computation is generalized from an emphasis on narrow and wide dependencies, to an arbitrary set of transformations that form a directed acyclic graph (DAG). A distributed scheduling algorithm is...

Running quantum algorithms in a quantum machine may solve some complex problems that are intractable for even the most powerful classical computers. Quantum algorithms can be described by quantum circuits consisting of a set of qubits and a sequence of gates operating on those qubits when the quantum circuit model of computation is adopted. This...
