    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (440 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A new pseudo-random number generator algorithm RC4E, having period significantly greater than RC4 has, is proposed. It is an extension of RC4. It uses RC4 as a main engine and Heap's algorithm as a second engine, providing enumeration of all possible permutations. Second engine is invoked periodically and it resets the current state of the main engine. Experiments, conducted on the both algorithms... View full abstract»

  • Model based testing of real-time embedded components

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):42 - 46
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (447 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We study automatic test generation for analyzing functional and extra-functional quality of embedded components. The main inputs of the method are the descriptive model of the analyzed component and a time-dependent model of the quality requirements. The model-based approach enables automation of the quality testing process, and therefore contributes to reducing the development time while avoiding... View full abstract»

    The process control requires data management for a strategic behaviour and the uninterrupted maintenance (just in time maintenance). So, it is necessary to assure the system's safety and availability. The fault detection and isolation (FDI) represents the next level up, necessary for the realisation of robust and fault tolerant systems. For this reason, the paper considered the case when one or mo... View full abstract»

    On the market, there are some commercial available software tools for quality cost management. However, these tools do not incorporate specialized agents for handling complex tasks related to the current needs in quality cost planning, like interpretation of the results over a horizon of time and automatic generation of reliable guidelines to prioritize resources in order to improve the quality of...

  • Reconfiguration of the Backtrace Algorithm Implemented in HW to Speed up a Vector Generation Process

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):59 - 64
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (195 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Recently, a method for converting combinational circuits into a corresponding backward-determining structure was proposed in order to implement the backtrace algorithm into hardware. A new proposed method, presented in this paper, extends the backward-determining structure by conflict-driven dynamic reconfiguration. Two variants of such reconfiguration are discussed and the experimental data has b... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (470 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Two original superior-order curvature-corrected voltage references was presented. In order to improve the temperature behavior of the circuits, double differential structures was used, implementing the linear and the superior-order curvature corrections. An original CTAT (complementary to absolute temperature) voltage generator was proposed, using exclusively MOS transistors biased in weak inversi... View full abstract»

    The balanced scorecard concept, developed in 1992 by Robert S. Kaplan and David P. Norton, became one of the most expedient management approaches on international scale. At the highest conceptual level, balanced scorecard is defined as being a "frame that helps the organizations to transpose the strategy into operational objectives, in order to direct both the organization performance and behavior...

    Usability is one of the most important qualities of a software system. Designing for usability is a complex task and sometimes even expensive. Automatic usability evaluation can ease the evaluation process. In this paper we try to analyze where and how can aspect oriented programming be used to develop modules to support automatic usability evaluation. A small family budget application is used to ...
