FPGA-Based Virtual Screening Acceleration of Rigid-Molecule Docking
Found in: Computing in Science & Engineering
By Denis Navarro,Oscar Lucia,Jose M. Gil-Narvion,Oscar Jimenez
Issue Date:November 2013
pp. 64-72
Virtual screening is a key process used to identify the most suitable molecule combinations when developing a new drug. Molecule docking is a commonly used method to analyze molecule structures and requires computing large databases to identify possible af...
Ianus: An Adaptive FPGA Computer
Found in: Computing in Science and Engineering
By Francesco Belletti, Filippo Mantovani, Giorgio Poli, Sebastiano Fabio Schifano, R. Tripiccione, Isabel Campos, Andres Cruz Flor, Denis Navarro, Sergio Perez Gaviro, Daniele Sciretti, Alfonso Tarancon, José Luis Velasco, Pedro Tellez, Luis Antonio Fe
Issue Date:January 2006
pp. 41-49
With Ianus, a next-generation field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based machine, the authors hope to build a system that can fully exploit the performance potential of FPGA devices. A software platform that simplifies Ianus programming will extend its int...

Janus is a modular, massively parallel, and reconfigurable FPGA-based computing system. Each Janus module has one computational core and one host. Janus is tailored to, but not limited to, the needs of a class of hard scientific applications characterized ...
VLSI Architecture for Lossless Compression of Medical Images Using the Discrete Wavelet Transform
Found in: Design, Automation and Test in Europe Conference and Exhibition
By Isidro Urriza, Jose I. Artigas, Jose I. Garcia, Luis A. Barragan, Denis Navarro
Issue Date:February 1998
pp. 196
This paper presents a VLSI Architecture to implement the forward and inverse 2-D Discrete Wavelet Transform (FDWT/IDWT), to compress medical images for storage and retrieval. Lossless compression is usually required in the medical image field. The word len...
