Power-Efficient High-Speed Parallel-Sampling ADCs for by Yu Lin, Hans Hegt, Kostas Doris, Arthur H.M. van Roermund

By Yu Lin, Hans Hegt, Kostas Doris, Arthur H.M. van Roermund

This ebook addresses the demanding situations of designing excessive functionality analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) according to the “smart information converters” thought, which suggests context know-how, on-chip intelligence and version. Readers will learn how to make the most numerous details both a-priori or a-posteriori (obtained from units, signs, purposes or the ambient events, etc.) for circuit and structure optimization through the layout part or variation in the course of operation, to augment information converters functionality, flexibility, robustness and power-efficiency. The authors specialise in exploiting the a-priori wisdom of the system/application to boost enhancement innovations for ADCs, with specific emphasis on bettering the facility potency of high-speed and high-resolution ADCs for broadband multi-carrier structures.

Nonlinear and Distributed Circuits by Wai-Kai Chen

By Wai-Kai Chen

Culled from the pages of CRC's hugely profitable, best-selling The Circuits and Filters instruction manual, moment variation, Nonlinear and disbursed Circuits offers a sharply targeted, finished assessment of the basic conception at the back of specialist purposes of those advanced circuits. It provides a concise, handy connection with the major suggestions, versions, and equations essential to learn, layout, and expect the habit of nonlinear and dispensed circuits, illustrated by way of common examples.

Edited by means of a special authority, this e-book emphasizes the theoretical thoughts underlying the approaches, habit, and operation of those units. greater than 225 figures and tables illustrate the strategies, and the place invaluable, the theories, rules, and arithmetic of a few matters are reviewed. professional individuals speak about the research, synthesis, and layout of nonlinear circuits; their illustration, approximation, identity, and simulation; mobile neural networks; multiconductor transmission strains; and research and synthesis of disbursed circuits.

Nonlinear and allotted Circuits builds a powerful theoretical starting place for the layout and research of either allotted and nonlinear circuits whereas serving as a convenient reference for skilled engineers, making it a must have for either newcomers and professional specialists.

Verification of Sequential and Concurrent Programs by Krzysztof R. Apt

By Krzysztof R. Apt

Computer courses are an essential a part of the various structures we depend upon in our day-by-day lives, and the right kind functioning and security of those structures is of paramount significance. the advance of tools that verify software correctness is accordingly a key problem for machine scientists.

This largely expected 3rd variation of Verification of Sequential and Concurrent Programs presents a scientific exploration of 1 of the most typical methods to application verification, often called the "assertional" process. Following the winning formulation of earlier variants, this technique is utilized to deterministic and nondeterministic sequential courses of various complexity, including either parallel and dispensed concurrent courses. The elevated content material of this thorough re-creation additionally contains insurance of the verification of object-oriented courses. for every classification of courses, the authors introduce an operational semantics and evidence structures for the verification of partial and overall correctness, justified officially in corresponding soundness theorems. Case reviews provided in the course of the ebook show using the facts structures to officially be sure strategies to classical difficulties, resembling sorting, manipulation of lists, producer/consumer and mutual exclusion.

Topics and Features:

  • Includes an intensive introductory part, familiarizing the reader with the elemental suggestions and notation utilized in the ebook, in addition to the book’s structure
  • Explains Hoare’s method of application verification for while courses, supplying a correctness facts of a application for partitioning an array (NEW)
  • Concludes every one bankruptcy with routines and bibliographic feedback for extra reading
  • Discusses recursive courses that stretch deterministic courses through parameterless strategies and systems with the call-by-value parameter mechanism, and offers a correctness facts of the quicksort software (NEW)
  • Explores nondeterministic and allotted courses, proposing a verification approach to allotted courses in line with a change into nondeterministic ones
  • Presents object-oriented courses, with a spotlight at the major features of items (NEW)
  • Investigates parallel courses with shared variables and with synchronization
  • Studies the problem of equity within the framework of nondeterministic courses, utilizing an procedure in accordance with the strategy of specific schedulers
  • Includes a Foreword via Professor Amir Pnueli

This glossy replace of a vintage, reader-friendly textbook is ideal for an introductory direction on software verification for complicated undergraduate or graduate scholars, and should even be used as an creation to operational semantics. Outlines for attainable classes are steered within the Preface to the publication. This e-book is exclusive in addressing assertional verification of all crucial periods of significant courses: while courses, recursive courses, object-oriented courses, nondeterministic courses, parallel courses, and allotted programs.

Introductory Digital Electronics: From Truth Tables to by N. W. Heap

By N. W. Heap

This e-book is an edited model of a part of the educating textual content used for the Open University's undergraduate direction 'T283 Introductory Electronics', first awarded in 1980. the unique textual content was once seasoned­ duced through a path crew of 9 authors and 9 help employees. The crew used to be additionally answerable for pupil experimental kits, tv and radio programmes. The technique followed through the path group was once to aim and educate, the place attainable, via specification of the matter instead of via dialogue of the operation of a range of accessible units and elements; on account that this leads extra clearly to modem layout options comparable to 'top-down'. The emphasis within the booklet at the resolution of combinational and sequential common sense difficulties by means of the reality tables and ROMs, instead of good judgment gates and mapping options, illustrates this strategy. The e-book covers issues starting from common sense to microprocessor reminiscence platforms and is meant for college students with a historical past in analogue electronics who desire to replace their wisdom to incorporate electronic digital structures. bankruptcy 2 introduces the fundamental rules of combinational common sense layout; fact tables, ROMs, common sense gates and Boolean algebra. bankruptcy three offers with sequential common sense, and exhibits how you can layout binary and decimal counters and use those to supply a method controller. bankruptcy four examines the procedure parts had to interconnect analogue and electronic systems.
