  • Using Pareto-Optimal Fronts in the Design of Reconfigurable Data Converters

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):34 - 39
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (732 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Analog design is a bottleneck in the design of integrated circuits. A recently proposed method to cope with the complexity of analog design is the use of a multi-objective bottom- up flow, which makes use of the concept of Pareto-optimal front (POF) to capture performance trade-offs of analog components, and through which these can be exploited during top-down design of a complex (hierarchically-w...

    Piezoelectric materials are widely used for many applications such as sensors, actuators. Today, their integration in microelectronics processes like CMOS requires the development of advanced realistic behavioral models. Until now, these models were limited to only one ceramic's operation mode, i.e., thickness or planar. Moreover, the robustness of piezo-electronic systems cannot be adequately add...

    Reconfigurable pixel antennas require algorithms that can change the antennas to match the specifications in real time with the minimum number of switch operations. To address this problem, an algorithm that combines a search method, an approximate qualitative antenna model and measurements is proposed. The qualitative model is based on a shape grammar that relates the shape of the antenna to its ... View full abstract»
