    In this issue we feature a contribution from the University of Idaho's Electrical Engineering Department. Professor Kenneth Noren and graduate student Ahmad Tarakji describe a systematic approach to macromodelling of operational amplifiers. Even though op-amp macromodels have been around since the early 1980's, there is still room for improvement and refinement of techniques for modeling op-amps. ... View full abstract»

    Review current OTDMA technology, with the emphasis on optical clock recovery and time demultiplexing. Various optical switching techniques are surveyed, and they are compared by taking account of the potential feasibility of engineering implementation. The architectures for OTDMA networks are described, and we look at all-optical clock recovery schemes that are based on traveling-wave (TW) semicon... View full abstract»

    Contribution toward a bionic brain is no longer an impossible dream. Several research teams are making attempts in the right direction all over the world. Analog VLSI design of a hippocampal neuron model is an important step toward construction of more complex microelectronic devices to facilitate the study of important brain regions. Gradually, selected functions of brain regions can be replaced ... View full abstract»

    Discusses the scaling rules for VLSI that pertain to the total wire length and the clock speed. The analysis indicates that the total wire length is not increasing as rapidly as standard scaling theory would indicate. This results from over-scaling of the cell size reduction from one generation to the next (as predicted by Moore [1975]). However, the total wire length is still increasing at a rate...

    Describes a DAC chipset developed specifically for telecommunication applications. The DAC chipset is implemented in Ericsson's in-house 0.6-micron CMOS process and operates on a supply voltage ranging from 1.5 V to 5 V with the number of bits ranging from 10 to 14 bits, and data rate from 50 Msamples/s@1.5 V to over 100 Msamples/s@5 V View full abstract»
