  • Crosstalk in multilayer printed circuit boards

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):116 - 119
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (308 KB)

    Experimental measurements were conducted to study the problem of crosstalk in multilayer printed-circuit-board design. Experiments using both pulse and sinusoidal signals were designed to study crosstalk as a function of coupling line lengths, line spacings, and shielding versus nonshielding (lines in different layers). The mutual inductance and capacitance between two similar transmission lines w... View full abstract»

    A means is introduced for graphically demonstrating the concept of the revolving stator magnetic field of a polyphase machine. This is implemented on the personal computer by means of a simple Fortran algorithm. A graphics package allows dynamic display of the output. The locus of the revolving phasor may be made to travel at any convenient speed, and the demonstrator is capable of displaying the ... View full abstract»

    Engineering Plus is a name for a structure that provides a wide range of enhancements for the four-year baccalaureate engineering program. Each of these enhancements requires a year or more beyond the basic engineering program. The Engineering Plus umbrella covers programs that include the basic engineering program plus something in addition. The something else is not just a random collection of c... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (11)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1116 KB)

    The authors summarize their three-year experience with a computer-methods course for electromagnetics, introduced as an elective for senior undergraduates. The main features of the course include: (1) the inclusion of the finite-difference method of solving engineering problems formulated in terms of partial differential equations; (2) the use of the finite-difference method to solve engineering p...

    A laboratory experiment is described that can be performed by electrical engineering graduate students and senior undergraduates. The experiment involves the assembly of a diesel-engine oil pump with an IBM RS-1 robot. The robot is instrumented with a force-sensing gripper and an optical binary sensor to detect parts in the gripper. A GE Optomation binary vision system is also used to monitor the ...

    A method is described for teaching structured programming techniques to students of assembly language programming. Structured programming, historically, has only been within the realm of high-level languages (Pascal, C, etc.), while a more loose approach-one lacking a formal syntax-has traditionally been applied to low-level programming in assembly language. Borrowing words and symbols from Pascal... View full abstract»

    After a review of the history of electrical engineering education in the US, the author argues that the concept of a liberal education is not completely outmoded, not only in the undergraduate professional schools, but also in the arts and sciences. However, obtaining such an education today is considered very difficult. The author explains why he believes all educated people in the US today shoul... View full abstract»

    A semicustom very large-scale integration (VLSI) course tailored to small university capabilities is described. The novel feature of this course is its close cooperation between the class, a computer-aided design (CAD) manufacturer, and a silicon vendor. The semester-long course includes two 1.5 h lectures per week. The lab was organized on an open-door basis. Students were allowed to enter the la... View full abstract»

    A fully functional computer is described that is simple enough to be built by junior-level undergraduate computer science students with no electronics experience. Any computable algorithm can be programmed using its tree instructions, which are modelled after Turing's original machine. Building this computer gives the computer science students confidence that computer hardware is real and understa... View full abstract»

    A versatile user-interactive data transmission training system, comprising a transmitter and a receiver section, is presented. The transmitter and the receiver can be used as separate units or can be coupled to form a complete system. There are four multiplexed analog inputs. The digital equivalent of these analog data are transmitted over a single wire. Digital data, counter states, and shifting ... View full abstract»
