To overcome the increasing sensitivity to variability in nanoscale integrated circuits, operation parameters (e.g., supply voltage) are adapted in a customized way exclusively to each chip. AVS is a standard industrial technique which has been adopted widely to compensate for process, voltage, and temperature variations as well as power...

At the core of state of the art microelectronic industry's drive for better technology, lies the continuing advancement in the development of Integrated Circuits using highly complex lithography machines, known as lithosteppers, which embed complex mechanical sub-systems performing intricate motions. <br/>These systems are controlled by means of...

In this thesis, we present Cprof+, an upgraded version of Cprof. Cprof+ is a lightweight profiling tool for Polyhedral Process Networks (PPN) that can estimate the performance of a C-program as a PPN implemented in hardware. Cprof+ improves the set of possible programs that can be successfully profiled, by increasing the performance estimation...

We consider the gradient (or steepest) descent method with exact line search applied to a strongly convex function with Lipschitz continuous gradient. We establish the exact worst-case rate of convergence of this scheme, and show that this worst-case behavior is exhibited by a certain convex quadratic function. We also give the tight worst-case...

Detecting similarities between (RNA, DNA, and protein) sequences is an important part of bioinformatics. Among the algorithms used to accomplish this, the Smith-Waterman algorithm is very popular. A sequential implementation of Smith-Waterman requires quadratic running time with respect to the length of the sequences. As the amount of data in...

Over the last decade, the complexity of system-on-chips (SoCs) has continuously increased owing to the increasing demand for high performance IPs and SoCs. However, the productivity of chip designers has not scaled up at the same rate. This has led to an enormous design productivity gap. At the same time, the increasing time-to-market pressure...
