    Neighboring line switching can contribute to a large portion of the delay of a line for today's deep submicron designs. A hierarchical design is unavoidable because of a huge circuit size. It is more important how we can consider hierarchically meaningful structure in circuit delay analysis. To improve accuracy of hierarchical timing analysis, in this paper we inject the notions of local false cou... View full abstract»

    Adaptive fuzzy controllers are potential candidates for controlling robot arms. However, traditional fuzzy controllers suffer from the rule explosion phenomenon. We propose here a hierarchical scheme to implement the fuzzy system and consequently relax the rule explosion problem. Furthermore, since payloads are normally varying, robotic models are uncertain. We propose a fuzzy-logic based dynamic ... View full abstract»
