Reconciling specialization and flexibility through compound circuits

Sami Yehia, Sylvain Girbal, Hugues Berry, Olivier Temam
2009 2009 IEEE 15th International Symposium on High Performance Computer Architecture  
In this article, we present a method for achieving any desired balance between flexibility and efficiency by automatically combining any set of individual customization circuits into a larger compound  ...  The more individual circuits are included, the larger the number of applications which can potentially benefit from this compound customization circuit, realizing flexibility at a minimal cost.  ...  We would also like to thank the Embedded Systems Lab colleagues at Thales Research and Technology for their insightful feedback and their support.  ...

A search for distinctive features of demand-led growth models

Sergio Parrinello
2014 PSL Quarterly Review  
This paper aims at a critical and constructive assessment of some extensions of Keynes's analysis of effective demand to the long period and growth.  ...  A criticism is addressed to a single-cause interpretation of the demand-led growth models and to the notion of normal capacity utilization adopted in such models.  ...  We neglect the public sector and therefore m is the only leakage coefficient out of the national income circuit, besides the propensity to save, s.  ...

Trustworthy Genetic Programming-Based Synthesis of Analog Circuit Topologies Using Hierarchical Domain-Specific Building Blocks

Trent McConaghy, Pieter Palmers, Michiel Steyaert, Georges G. E. Gielen
2011 IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation  
The runtime is orders of magnitude faster than openended systems, and unlike the other evolutionary algorithm approaches, the resulting circuits are trustworthy by construction.  ...  Introduction T HE AUTOMATED design of structures such as robotic structures, car assemblies, and circuit topologies has attracted much attention in the evolutionary computation literature, in part because  ...  Nonterminal symbols (compound and flexible blocks, defined shortly) can expand according to one or more derivation rules (the possible sub-blocks).  ...
