Recognize regular languages with programmable building-blocks by M. J Foster( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper introduces a new programmable building-block for recognition of regular languages. By combining three types of basic cells a circuit for recognizing any regular language can be constructed or 'programmed' automatically from the regular expression describing that language. Recognizers built in this way are efficient pipeline circuits that have constant response time and avoid broadcast. In addition, the paper proposes the use of a single, regular layout, called the PRA (programmable recognizer array), that can be 'personalized' to recognize the language specified by any regular expression. PRA's provide compact reconfigurable layouts for recognizer circuits, requiring only O(n log n) area for regular expressions of length n. (Author)

Specialized silicon compilers for language recognition by M. J Foster( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A specialized silicon compiler is a design tool that accepts a behavioral specification for a circuit and produces the layout for a small, fast VLSI chip. Each specialized silicon compiler produces chips for only a small task domain. Because the task domain is restricted, a specialized silicon compiler can use application-dependent techniques for circuit design and layout, thus ensuring the efficiency of the chips that it produces. The major portion of this thesis describes a specialized silicon compiler that generates recognizers for regular languages. Given a regular expression describing a language to be recognized, the compiler automatically produces the layout for a high-speed recognizer. Besides being a prototype of a useful tool for designing recognizers, this compiler serves as a model for compilers specialized to other areas. It is used to illustrate techniques for construction and verification of specialized silicon compilers. It describes a specialized programmable layout for language recognizers. A specialized programmable layout is a chip that is designed as a target for a particular specialized silicon compiler. Parts of the circuit that are the same for all problems in the task domain are laid out in advance, while parts of the circuit that vary from one problem to another are left to be programmed. The layout described in this thesis has cells for primitive recognition operations laid out in advance and is programmed for a particular regular language by interconnecting these cells. This layout was implemented in NMOS and is programmed after fabrication by cutting metal lines using a laser
MISE, Machine for In-System Evaluation of custom VLSI chips by Roberto Bisiani( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper identifies some of the key research problems that one encounters in specifying, designing, testing and demonstrating a custom chip in relation to the application system in which it will be used, and proposes a system called MISE(Machine For In-System Evaluation) to be a solution to the issues raised

Design of special-purpose VLSI chips : examples and opinions by M. J Foster( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper identifies important steps in the design of a special purpose VLSI chip, and argues that the most crucial step is the design of the underlying algorithm. Because the algorithm determines the degree of parallelism and pipelining that is possible, it largely determines the performance of the chip. Furthermore, if the underlying algorithm has the right properties such as modularity and regularity, then the rest of the design should be routine and thus takes little effort. These claims are supported by a concrete example--the design of an efficient pattern matching chip, which has been fabricated for testing. (Author)

Louisiana gubernatorial runoff debate, 11-1-1995( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Gubernatorial candidates Cleo Fields and Michael Foster participated in a debate sponsored by Louisiana Public Broadcasting and the Council for a Better Louisiana. Representative Fields and State Senator Foster were the top vote-getters in the recent all-party primary election. They will compete in the Louisiana runoff election on November 18. The debate was moderated by Robert Collins of Louisiana Public Broadcasting and the candidates were questioned by citizens, by each other, and by a panel of journalists

Speed Trap Town by M. J Foster( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One night, Julian and Tate meet in a motel room. Under the neon moon, they realize that they come from the same world. Both drifters. Both working-class men who America forgot. Both unable to be themselves in the small towns they call home. But somewhere in this motel room, the two find the beginnings of a love that will change their lives forever. At the end of their long weekend together, the two decide to go their separate ways. But quickly, they realize that their lives back home are not worth returning to. They reunite and decide that it's time get their revenge. They knock down a factory, a shoe store, and a bank, all in a matter of days. Their mission: take back what's been stolen from them. Make the 1% pay for all the times Tate and Julian were left out in the cold. But this devil-may-care attitude soon turns ugly as Tate and Julian lose their way. Their mission goes off-track, things get out of hand, and everything they once fought for begins to crumble beneath their feet. Ultimately, they figure out another way to fight back, another way to get revenge. For too long, they have been pushed to the side, made to change, made to slink into the shadows. But those days are gone now. With a tank full of gas and some crazy dreams, Tate and Julian decide to take revenge on the politicians, corporations, and religious zealots who have long tried to ruin their community. All this leads to a conclusion that will put not just their lives at risk, but the lives of millions
