    A track-and-hold amplifier (THA) for 1GSps 8bit pipelined folding and interpolation (F&I) ADC is realized in TSMC 0.18 μm 1p6m CMOS process. The THA adopts bootstrapped switch instead of simple MOS switch. Dummy transistors and duplicated source follower are also taken to improve its performance. Post simulation results prove that the THA achieves a SNDR of 51.1dB at Nyquist sampling ra... View full abstract»

    Over more than 30 years development of Non-intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM), many technologies were developed from sampling frequency 1 Hz to hundreds kHz to extract from simple information such as difference power dP, dQ; shape of transient signatures to complex information such as harmonics or electromagnetic interference (EMI). There are now many real NILM systems in residential applications bu... View full abstract»

    This paper analyzes the performance of M-PSK systems operating under a class of non-Gaussian noise, modeled as a combination of a white Gaussian noise and an impulsive noise represented by a filtered Poisson process of which the baseband envelope follows the Rayleigh distribution. A tight upper bound of Symbol error rate (SER) is computed. Numerical results are presented in terms of different para... View full abstract»

    In this paper we propose a frequency domain equalization scheme for the cyclic prefix assisted (CPA) cyclic code shift keying (CCSK) system. In particular, the proposed scheme performs both correlation and decision in the frequency domain, which helps to reduce the computational complexity. Simulation results show that the proposed system achieves the best bit error rate (BER) performance with the... View full abstract»
