    This paper deals with the general question of indirect measurement within dynamical continuous context. The proposed answer is of probabilistic nature in the sense that: the modeling, which is the first element of the answer, consists in transforming the initial model into a stochastic differential equation (SDE) such that, estimating the probability density function (pdf) of its process achieves ...

    The task allocation on various components or processing units composing an automation system needs a design-aided methodology in order to obtain both relevant architecture of this automation system and a sufficiently efficient task allocation. The dependability, mainly illustrated in our approach by the availability of the process and by the reliability that characterizes the risk of incidents or ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a new model for analyzing the repairability of reconfigurable system-on-chip (RSoC) instrumentation with the repair process. It exploits the connectivity of the interconnected cores in which unreliability factors due to both neighboring cores and the interconnect structure are taken into account. Based on the connectivity, two RSoC repair scheduling strategies, Minimum Number o... View full abstract»

    The split cylinder resonator method is improved for nondestructive and accurate measurement for low permittivity materials at multiple frequency points. The dielectric constants of flat substrate materials are calculated based on a rigorous mode match analysis of the TE011 mode. The loss tangent is also approximately calculated. The dielectric properties of two commercial substrates hav... View full abstract»

    The original digital calibration approach for 1 b/stage and 1.5 b/stage pipeline analog-digital converters produces missing or nonmonotonic digital codes with the device and circuit impairments typical of modern deep submicrometer CMOS technologies. Two digital calibration algorithms are introduced to improve pipeline performance when using low-voltage low-gain nonlinear operational amplifiers and... View full abstract»

    An assessment was made of estimating the moisture content (mc) of single peanut pods (in-shell peanuts) by measuring the complex impedance of a parallel-plate capacitor with a single pod between the plates. Capacitance (C), phase angle (θ) and/or dissipation factor (D) were measured at 1.0 and 5.0 MHz, and the measured values at these two frequencies were used in a derived empirical equation...

    The on-chip rise-time measurement method for an exponentially decaying signal is proposed. By employing a differentiator, the method circumvents the challenges associated with directly measuring a signal's rise time. The method can be used as the on-chip test instrument as part of a built-in self-testing (BIST) framework, or independently. CMOS circuits and layouts for implementation of the propos...

    The sensitivity of various features that are characteristic of a machine defect may vary considerably under different operating conditions. Hence it is critical to devise a systematic feature selection scheme that provides guidance on choosing the most representative features for defect classification. This paper presents a feature selection scheme based on the principal component analysis (PCA) m... View full abstract»

    The purpose of nondestructive evaluation is to detect degradation so that corrective action can be taken before the degradation challenges the structural integrity of an industrial system or one of its components. Accurate characterization is required to distinguish progressive degradation from benign material conditions. In nondestructive evaluation, characterization includes quantification and d...

    This paper presents a wavelet transform-based data fusion algorithm for multisensor systems. With this algorithm, the optimum estimate of a measurand can be obtained in terms of minimum mean square error (MMSE). The variance of the optimum estimate is not only smaller than that of each observation sequence but also smaller than the arithmetic average estimate. To implement this algorithm, the vari...
