This book provides an in-depth overview of on-chip instrumentation technologies and ways of adding ‘design for debug’ (DfD) instrumentation to system-on-chip design. As well as focusing on hardware implementations, software and tools are discussed in detail.
This book examines the impact of nanotechnologies on the design of electronic systems. Coverage includes technologies ranging from nanoelectronics to sensing and micro/nanofluidics and encompasses techniques that bridge the gap between engineering and biology.
Written from years of experience with developing memories and low-voltage CMOS circuits, Nanoscale Memory Repair describes yield and reliability issues in terms of mathematics and engineering. Readers will find a detailed explanation of the various yield models and calculations.
This book presents a broad overview of RF MEMS technology, going from the MEMS devices (mainly BAW and Si MEMS resonators), to basic circuits such as oscillators and finally complete systems such as ultra low-power MEMS-based radios.
As the demand rises for low-power, low-voltage A/D converters, so do the quality-control issues in these devices, whose nano-level variables are difficult to control. This work looks at improving power efficiency and enhancing testing and debugging techniques.
With power consumption now a key design constraint, recent years have seen growing research interest in these networks as an architectural solution for high-speed data transfer. This single-source reference covers some of the most important design techniques.
This is a practical introduction to MEMS for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It describes sensors, actuators, and microfluidics, and their relationship with MEMS. The book has a tested pedagogical structure and an accessible writing style.
Introduction to Circuit Analysis and Design focuses on the terminal characteristics of circuit inputs and outputs, and explores the role they play in analysis and design. Readers will find in-depth treatment of two-port models, input resistance, output impedance, loading effects and frequency response.
This book describes a formally developed, network-centric Real-Time Operating System, OpenComRTOS. Using the formal methods described in this book produces results that are more reliable and will have higher performance.
This book addresses the gap between DSP algorithm design and implementation, using an approach to DSP architecture design that merges algorithm and system specifications with the intrinsic computational capability of the underlying technology.
This book explores system theory, including optimal state feedback and optimal state estimation, and its role in system design, with application to feedback control systems and wireless transceivers, plus system identification and channel estimation.
Using Verilog models and test benches for implementing and explaining fault simulation and test generation algorithms, this book treats the concepts of testing and testability in digital systems, and also covers digital design practices and methodologies.
