    Adaptive active phased-array radars are seen as the vehicle to address the current requirements for a true 'multifunction' radar system. Their ability to adapt to the environment and schedule their tasks in real time allows them to operate with performance levels well above those that can be achieved from conventional radar designs in addressing the current and future threats. Their ability to mak... View full abstract»

    A key problem in the design of large mixed-signal circuits is the noise caused by the coupling of digital signals into the substrate. This paper describes methods that allow circuit designers to model efficiently such substrate noise in large mixed-signal SPICE designs. In the light of these techniques a new methodology is presented for efficiently modelling the substrate noise caused by current i... View full abstract»

    A quantitative comparison is made between the computational requirements of typical systems-on-chip and the computational capabilities of silicon. This is illustrated by the evolution of TV and other video appliances on the one hand and the progress of silicon technology on the other. As a basic benchmark figure the concept of the intrinsic computational efficiency (ICE) of silicon is introduced, ... View full abstract»

  • Www.regulation: the why, what and whither of communications regulation

    Publication Year: 2001, Page(s):257 - 263

    Regulation is as controversial today as ever before. Some call for a 'lighter touch' while others demand stronger intervention to create 'Broadband Britain'. The author describes what regulators do and why, Oftel's accountability, the role of the engineer within Oftel and the forthcoming changes that will create OFCOM, the Office for Communications, from five existing communications regulators View full abstract»

    This paper introduces an approach to managing quality-of-service (QoS) for a residential video-on-demand (VoD) service employing MPEG-2 transport streams using an experimental asynchronous transfer mode (ATM)/asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) access network testbed. The paper examines the complex multilayer propagation of ATM layer parameters over an underlying physical layer and their rel... View full abstract»
