    An automatic system is proposed that can locate line breaks. After a description of line-transmission systems and the linebreak problem, a solution is studied that uses intermediate loopbacks along a line equipped with solid-state switches. The features of solid-state switches allow a simple implementation and are especially interesting in the case of a line system fed by small line currents View full abstract»

    Early 21st century opportunities for Gigascale integration (GSI) will be governed by a hierarchy of theoretical and practical limits whose five levels can be labeled as: 1) fundamental, 2) material, 3) device, 4) circuit, and 5) system. This article reviews recent enhancements of this hierarchy and identifies those critical limits that appear to present the most formidable challenges to continued ... View full abstract»

    Coupling is a complex phenomenon, especially where the high-gain coupling effect is concerned. To introduce coupling effects on wire delay, including the high-gain coupling effect, this article presents a generalization of a study that evolved from a real VLSI design. Possible solutions to coupling effects such as CAD tools, circuit design methodology, and circuit design techniques are also discus... View full abstract»

    Over the past decade major breakthroughs have occurred, both in theory and experiment, that have allowed phase-locked arrays of semiconductor laser diodes to meet their promise of reliable, high-continuous-wave (CW) power (≅0.5 W) operation in diffraction-limited beams as well as multiwatt (5-10 W) near-diffraction-limited peak-pulsed-power operation. In this review the authors describe a cor... View full abstract»
