  • As the embedded market is expected to increase in the near future, a standardized software design methodology for these systems is desirable, but currently does not exist. The design of a real-time embedded system involves selecting a hardware platform and either 1) selecting a commercially available realtime operating system (RTOS) or 2) utilizing a ?round-robin? loop customized for the application. Presuming that the software requirements have been established within a Software Requirements Do... View full Abstract »

  • Cost control, production efficiency, cycle time and yield are critical quality benchmarks for nano-electronics production. Their sensitivity to the statistical variations of the IC manufacturing process is increasing more and more in comparison to the process complexity. Therefore, the following two joint tasks become essential: To characterize statistically IC manufacturing fluctuations, and To predict reliably circuit performance spreads at the design stage.

    In this tutorial we will int... View full Abstract »

  • In the last few years, a series of breakthrough innovations have been made to transform analog-intensive RF circuitry into digitally-intensive implementations. In Texas Instruments, this disruptive technology falls under the umbrella of a Digital RF Processor (DRP^TM) platform and enables to integrate almost all of cellular phone modem electronics into a single IC chip fabricated using nanoscale digital CMOS process. The first such single-chip mobile phone was sampled in December 2004 and is now... View full Abstract »

  • Early in the requirements engineering life cycle it is essential to properly manage customer expectations, and to deal with tradeoffs between functionality, time, and cost. To address these issues it is necessary to have some way of estimating costs for system features. The activities related to managing expectations and estimating and managing costs are called value engineering. In this tutorial we examine value engineering activities for requirements engineers. Value engineering includes conce... View full Abstract »

  • Green manufacturing systems are lean. "Lean manufacturing" describes the process of getting rid of waste that results in overproduction, delays, inventory, over-processing and error, and leads to a more continuous production flow based almost entirely on customer pull (an accurate forecast of future demand). A key component of a lean manufacturing system is an aggregate planning system. This module provides a hands-on, user oriented explanation of how to develop an aggregate planning system that...

  • Leadership can be defined as the ability of an individual to influence, motivate, and enable others to contribute toward the effectiveness and success of the organizations of which they are members. Leadership is not dependant on title or formal authority. All too often we think of leadership as something we will develop and apply later rather than earlier in our career. This applies to both leadership within our chosen technical discipline and leadership of our profession. In the early stages o... View full Abstract »

  • In terms of green engineering design and manufacturing sustainability we consider the following:

    1. An eco-friendly state, or process that can be maintained over time, for a very long time.
    2. The ability of an ecosystem to maintain ecological advanced design and manufacturing processes and functions, biological diversity, and productivity over time.
    3. Green sustainability encompasses the concept of meeting present design and manufacturing needs without compromising the ability of ... View full Abstract »

  • In the IEEE eLearning tutorial ?Including Medical Imaging in Drug Development ? To Answer the Relevant Question,? we discussed different options for using imaging in the drug development process, and described the Question -Based Drug Development paradigm. Imaging can play an important role because it is non-invasive, repeatable and generates quantitative data over the whole anatomical site of disease. It can also suggest the mechanism by which the drug works.
