Hugo de guy Professor Katholieke Universiteit Leuven Senior examine Fellow IMEC The regular evolution of undefined, software program and communications know-how is swiftly remodeling the computer- and global into the area of Ambient Intelligence (AmI). This subsequent wave of knowledge expertise is fundam- tally various in that it makes dispensed stressed and instant computing and verbal exchange disappear to the heritage and places clients to the foreground. AmI adapts to humans rather than the opposite direction round. it is going to increase our realization, visual display unit our well-being and protection, advisor us via site visitors and so on. briefly, its final objective is to enhance the standard of our lifestyles by way of a quiet, trustworthy and safe interplay with our social and fabric surroundings. What makes AmI engineering so interesting is that its layout begins from learning individual to international interactions that have to be applied as an int- ligent and self reliant interaction of just about all useful networked digital intelligence at the globe. this can be a new and fascinating measurement for many select- cal and software program engineers and should allure extra inventive expertise to engineering than natural expertise does. improvement of the best know-how for AmI will purely be triumphant if the engineering study neighborhood is ready to hitch forces so as to make Mark Weiser’s dream of 1991 come precise. this can no longer be company as ordinary through simply doubling transistor count number or clock pace in a microprocessor or expanding the bandwidth of communication.

While the sensor/ADC has limited implementation flexibility‚ the wireless interface and the computational units offer several alternatives. Intuitively‚ if the wireless interface is realized using RF communication‚ it would definitely be the largest contributor‚ possibly exceeding the whole power budget alone. For this reason‚ optical‚ laser-based communication should be preferred; to give a rough idea‚ a RF-based communication has a transmission efficiency around whereas laser-based communication is around 1 nJ/bit [33].

Another key point in Itanium’s architecture is the emphasis on a fast off-chip interface. External memory and I/O are accessed through a 128-bit front-side bus (FSB)‚ clocked at 400-MHz. 4 GB/s bandwidth (a two-fold improvement with respect to the first-generation Itanium)‚ which is required to support scalability and multi-processor configurations. Providing adequate bandwidth to the execution units is a cross-cutting theme in the design of the overall Itanium architecture. In fact‚ I/O bandwidth optimization is probably the most obvious improvement from Itanium I to Itanium II.
