    Microelectronics development has progressed rapidly during the past 30 years. Unlike several leading Western countries, with long standing microelectronics facilities, Taiwan's microelectronics industry has grown in a very short time. In 1994, Taiwan's IC production was 3.5 percent of the world's semiconductor market. Based on the current growth rate, Taiwan will account for about 8 percent of the... View full abstract»

    Oscilloscopes and computers, today's standard engineering tools for design and troubleshooting, continue to make huge strides in capability and speed. During the last 30 years, the typical engineer's computing tool has changed from the slide rule to a microprocessor-based system running at 50 MHz or faster. The computer system's hardware and software components continue to improve substantially on... View full abstract»

    What role does technical communication play in training? Despite the trend toward leaner and meaner staffs, more and more companies, particularly those in high technology, are recognizing that employee and customer training is a vital necessity rather than a superfluous luxury. Managers and individuals who really-care about what goes on realize that good quality training really makes a difference.... View full abstract»

    A new compact bipolar transistor model for circuit simulators that has already received widespread support in the industry, is considered. The model, VBIC95, was constructed to be the industry standard replacement for the aging SPICE Gummel-Poon model (SGP). Users of the 20-year-old SGP model have found it to be inadequate in representing, many of the physical effects important in modern bipolar t... View full abstract»

    What do you get if you combine very high frequency microwaves, real-time imaging, submillimeter spatial resolution, and chemical sensitivity? The answer is Terahertz, or “T”-ray, imaging. This novel imaging technology operates in the submillimeterwave region of the electro-magnetic spectrum, a portion of the spectrum that was previously hard to access using conventional technologies.

    In most applications, FPGAs are used to implement “glue logic”, providing the advantages of high integration levels without the expense and risk of custom ASIC development. However, as SRAM-based FPGA devices have increased in capability, their use as in-system-configurable computing elements is receiving considerable attention. Indeed, reconfigurable FPGA technology holds the potentia... View full abstract»
