    Summary form only given. We describe the use of symmetry for verification of transistor-level circuits by symbolic trajectory evaluation (STE). We present a new formulation of STE which allows a succinct description of symmetry properties in circuits. Symmetries in circuits are classified as structural symmetries, arising from similarities in circuit structure, data symmetries, arising from simila... View full abstract»

    Quasi-optical (QO) amplifiers have advanced to the point where they are competitive with other solid state and vacuum-based power amplifier technologies in the upper microwave and millimeter-wave bands. While still trailing in power-added efficiency, the QO amplifiers have advantages over traditional system architectures because of superior linearity, low noise, high spurious-free dynamic range, a...

    The paradigm of Cellular Neural Networks (CNNs)is going to achieve a complete maturity. In fact, from a methodological point of view, important results on their digitally programmable analog dynamics have been gained, completed with thousands of application routines. This has encouraged the spreading of a great number of applications in the most different disciplines. Moreover, their structure, ta... View full abstract»
