    When integrating solid-state audio record and playback functionality into products, today's designers often resort to digital signal processors (DSPs). While DSP-based solutions provide one approach for compressing and storing audio information, they are typically too costly and consume too much space and power for most portable voice applications. This article describes an alternative approach to... View full abstract»

    MATLAB can manipulate and invert large matrices and can be used in many numerical applications. MATLAB's capabilities can be extended with a recent addition called Simulink, a program which is normally used in the analysis and synthesis of modern control systems. Simulink, now incorporated into MATLAB, can also be used to analyze distributed transmission lines. Hence, it can be directly used in th... View full abstract»

    Good technical management may seem intangible and hard to define. One reason for this is that really good management is so rare. Yet it can be taught and learned. This brief outline can only begin to sketch out the more important principles of good management. A study of management technology, beginning with the above references, will go a long way in increasing the effectiveness of anyone having ... View full abstract»

    SPICE generation of the output signals from electronic oscillator circuits is obtained by transient analysis. Simulation success is software specific and depends upon how the transient analysis function is configured. Different tricks, which are oscillator configuration specific, may be applied to achieve simulation output. In the final analysis, one must remember that simulation is not a complete...

    The methodology described in this article for creating a PWL noise source is an effective way of generating general fα noise for time-domain circuit simulations. The benefit of using digitally-interpolated noise waveforms is significant. Using an external computer program to produce digitally-interpolated PWL noise sources removes the burden of spectrally shaping the noise from th... View full abstract»
