  • An open-source software tool for compact modeling applications

    Page(s): 6 - 41
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (530 KB)  

    This column features an open-source software tool - called automatic device model synthesizer (ADMS) - that supports and simplifies compact model development, implementation, distribution, maintenance, and sharing. The intended audience is people in universities or CAD companies interested in contributing to the development and improvement of the tool. It should also help people whose main interest is using the tool to get a better understanding of how ADMS works internally. ADMS is available on SourceForge.net, one of the most popular open-source software development Web sites. It was developed at Motorola Inc., whose main interest is to support standardization of compact models. View full abstract»

  • What's in store for silicon photoreceivers?

    Today's new "electronic" products are increasingly relying on a combination of electrical, optical, mechanical, and biochemical technologies for smaller size, higher levels of integration, enhanced performance, and versatility based on D. Cristea et al. (2000) and H.H. Kim et al. (1994). The last decade has seen the invention, refinement, and volume production of compact, high-performance silicon-based photoreceivers. Consisting of a photodetector (PD) and an amplifier, photoreceivers or photodetector integrated circuits (PDICs) are currently in great demand for the optical communication, optical sensory, and optical storage sectors. These key markets are driving the rapid commercialization of optical and silicon-based semiconductor technologies. The industry has been experiencing explosive sales in CD/DVD systems and is gearing up for a progressive increase in market size with the recent introduction of the BD system prototypes. The optical storage market is driving the demand for photoreceivers built in a CMOS or BiCMOS technology. In time, the BD system will most likely replace the CD and current DVD systems. However, for the foreseeable future, the standard for BD systems will require that they be able to read the 650-nm DVDs and 780-nm CDs. Today, the PIN photodiode principles of operation are fairly well understood, and the process methods for designing them have been thoroughly researched throughout this past decade. Novel process structures are conceivable in the future, but one is most likely to see new process integration schemes, photodiode design layouts, and amplifier circuit architectures.

    This article has focused on optical networks using WDM to provide broadband network solutions with increased functionality, capacity, and reach. The building blocks in this type of networks, i.e., OADMs and OXCs, have been discussed in detail. The different architectures and technology options used in these types of nodes have been investigated. A comparison between WS and BS OADM architectures has been given, while OXCs have been classified into opaque and transparent. The WS and B&S transparent OXC architectures have been discussed in detail, and the various technology options in terms of optical switching have been covered. The system performance of OADMs and OXCs including their cascadability has been analyzed in terms of OSNR, crosstalk, amplifier transients, and filter concatenation effects. View full abstract»

    Engineering and law are inseparable in the information age. The vast wealth that technological innovations can bring makes legal protection a prime concern for engineers and corporations. One technology that holds great promise for the advancement of imaging applications is organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Today, numerous corporations and academic institutions are investing vast treasures in pursuit of organic light-emitting technology to create advanced video displays, printers, and lasers. While researching this technology, the innovators are protecting their large investment of wealth, time, and creativity through patenting their technology. This article integrates the fields of engineering and law to provide a unique perspective on the development of OLED technology. With institutions around the world racing to develop and profit from organic luminescent technology, engineers and institutions must keep track of not only the technology, but the legal protection of the technology as well.
