Publications

During my studies in computer science, a few (overview) papers have assembled. I make them available here for use by others. The publications are licensed under the Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 (CC BY-SA 4.0) license.

ARM Big.LITTLE Processing
  • Ever increasing requirements for mobile platforms like gaming, browsing or HD-videos are an extensive drain on the battery. To increase battery life and maintain high performance on the very same SoC, ARM designed Big.LITTLE, which is discussed in this paper.

Tee im Wandel der Zeit
  • This publication, originally a scientific work at school, became bigger than we had expected, even though we already shortened it. It is therefore a nice and gentle introduction into the production of tea from the tea plant, but also into tea tasting like tea gourmets do. Tea is here explicitly the tea from the tea plant and not a drink made by cooking some herbs like peppermint. This work gives also an introduction into the great tea cultures from England, Japan, China or the East Freesians Germany).
