    A fully integrated low-power complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) particle detector front-end (PDFE), optimized for space applications, is presented. The front-end comprises a charge sensitive amplifier and a four-stage semi-Gaussian pulse-shaping amplifier. The chip was custom synthesized with an analog synthesis environment. With a power consumption of only 10 mW and a chip area less t... View full abstract»

    This paper shows how a monolithic JFET preamplifier for spectrometry applications can be upgraded by introducing a nonresistive reset. It was found that the charge reset which employs a forward-biased gate-to-source junction of the input JFET suits this case best. The introduction of the nonresistive feedback is important in two respects. First, it puts into better evidence the intrinsic noise lim... View full abstract»

    The nuclear steam generator is a nonminimum-phase system, which is caused by the swell and shrink effects. Since its inverse system has unstable dynamics, it is difficult to train the fuzzy controller via the conventional backpropagation of the system output errors. In this paper, a genetic algorithm is applied for the simultaneous design of membership functions and rule sets for a fuzzy control m... View full abstract»
