Country : India
Authors : Miss. Sushma Kumari || Mr. Ashish Raghuwanshi || Mrs. Ruchi Gupta

ABSTRACT:This paper is base on the implementation of Reduce Instruction set computer with the application of Discrete Cosine transform (DCT) , Inverse DCT, Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) and Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), Digital filter are performed by DSP system. Digital filter is one of the important contents of digital signal process. The performance of the processor design is improved by using the pipeline approach. It allows the processor to work on different steps of the instruction at the same time, thus more instruction can be executed in a shorter period of time. The analysis of this processor will provide various features including arithmetic operations. The speed of operation is mainly affected by the computational complexity due to multipliers and adder modules of the digital systems. Our work will targets the computer architecture courses and presents an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) implementation of a MIPS (Microprocessor without Interlocked Pipeline Stages) via VHDL (Very high speed integrated circuit Hardware Description Language) design. The latency and computational time is utmost important in microprocessor. Thus we design the multiplier and adder module with improve latency and computational time.

Title : Exploration of Normalized Cross Correlation to Track the Object through Various Template Updating Techniques
Country : India
Authors : M.H.Sidram || Nagappa.U.Bhajantri

ABSTRACT: Object tracking is a process devoted to locate the pathway of moving object in the succession of frames. The tracking of the object has been emerged as a challenging facet in the fields of robot navigation, military, traffic monitoring and video surveillance etc. In the first phase of contributions, the tracking of object is exercised by means of matching between the template and exhaustive image through the Normalized Cross Correlation (NCCR). In order to update the template, the moving objects are detected using frame difference technique at regular interval of frames. Subsequently, NCCR or Principal Component Analysis (PCA) or Histogram Regression Line (HRL) of the template and moving objects are estimated to find the best match to update the template. The second phase discusses the tracking of object between the template and partitioned image through the NCCR with reduced computational aspects. However, the updating schemes remain same. Here, an exploration with varied bench mark dataset has been carried out. Further, the comparative analysis of the proposed systems with different updating schemes such as NCCR, PCA and HRL has been succeeded. The offered systems considerably reveal the capability to track an object indisputably under diverse illumination conditions.

Title : Modelling and Simulation of a SAR ADC with Internally Generated Conversion Signal
Country : India
Authors : T. Vimal Prakash Singh

ABSTRACT: This paper presents the modeling and simulation of a 833.33 kS/s, 51.279μW successive approximation register(SAR) Analog to Digital Converter(ADC) using 0.18μm CMOS technology that uses internally generated signal for approximation for low power applications. The ADC is powered by single supply voltage of 1V. In our scheme, comparator output time and bit settling time of the Digital to Analog Converter(DAC) are utilized to generate a signal level such that the next step of the conversion can take place. This model is significant for Globally Asynchronous Locally Synchronous(GALS) system integration.

Keywords: Globally Asynchronous Locally Synchronous (GALS), Asynchronous ADC.

Title : A Novel Low Power Energy Efficient SRAM Cell With Reduced Power Consumption using MTCMOS Technique
Country : India
Authors : S. Mohan Das || K. S. Kiran Kumar || A.Madhulatha

ABSTRACT:In modern high performance integrated circuits, maximum of the total active mode energy is consumed due to leakage current. SRAM cell array is main source of leakage current since majority of transistor are utilized for on-chip memory in today high performance microprocessor and system on chip designs. Therefore the design of low leakage SRAM is required. Reducing power dissipation, supply voltage, leakage currents, area of chip are the most important parameters in today`s VLSI designs. But scaling of these parameters will lead to drastic increase in sub threshold leakage currents and power dissipation because of that performance of the design is degraded. So to overcome these issues it is better to concentrate on reduction of active leakage currents and dynamic power dissipation by using power reduction techniques. In this paper 9T SRAM (data retention p-gated) cell for low voltage and energy constrain application is analyzed with respect to power dissipation, area and delay. The analyzed design of 9T SRAM cell with MTCMOS technique has been proposed. Designed circuits are simulated in Microwind 3.1 VLSI CAD Tool in 90 and 65nm CMOS technology.

ABSTRACT:Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) are increasingly being used to design high- end computationally intense microprocessors capable of handling both fixed and floating- point mathematical operations. Addition is the most complex operation in a floating-point unit and offers major delay while taking significant area. Over the years, the VLSI community has developed many floating-point adder algorithms mainly aimed to reduce the overall latency. The Objective of this paper to implement the 32 bit binary floating point adder with minimum time.

We first present a scheme for addressing image pixels that takes into account the order defined on a quadtree blocks. We study various properties of this method, and then we develop a formula that establishes links between quadtree blocks. Based on these results, we present an efficient algorithm that generates the list of location codes of all possible neighbors, in all directions, for a given block of the quadtree.
