Reliability-Performance Trade-Offs In Photonic Noc Architectures, Pradheep Khanna Kaliraj

Theses

Advancements in the field of chip fabrication has facilitated in integrating more number of transistors in a given area which lead to the era of multi-core processors. Interconnect became the bottleneck for the multi-core processors as the number of cores in a chip increased. The traditional bus based architectures, which are currently used in the processors, cannot scale up to support the increasing number of cores in a multi-core chip. Hence, Network-on-Chip (NoC) is the preferred communication backbone for modern multicore chips. However, the multi-hop data transmission using wireline interconnects result in high energy dissipation and latency. Hence, many alternative ...

Brand Communities Of Facebook: How Do They Create Value?, Mahmud Hassan

Theses

Businesses are witnessing an explosion of internet-based messages and information transmitted through various social networking sites (SNSs). Although there is a great deal of interest on consumption behaviors within SNSs but the shared consumption practices which reveals the collective value creation has not been properly explored within this context before. A netnographic approach (Kozinets 2002) guided the data collection. Facebook is chosen because of its vast popularity and multicultural aspect. This study identified twenty one distinct value creating behaviors (VCBs) within Facebook and explored six new VCBs that were not identified within the context of consumer behavior and SNSs.
