    The random failure statistics for the yield of mass-produced semiconductor integrated circuits are derived by considering defect and fault formation during the manufacturing process. This approach allows the development of a yield theory that includes many models that have been used previously and also results in a practical control model for integrated circuit manufacturing. Some simpler formulat... View full abstract»

    The traditional view of geometrical optics as the ray-tracing procedure for the design of mirror, prism, and lens systems of uniform optical components, has become enlarged in recent years. This has been brought about by the applications of electromagnetic systems at ever decreasing wavelengths on the one hand, and by new optical components, such as optical fibers and integrated optical elements, ...

    This paper examines some of the market factors which will be central to the evolution of Office Automation (OA). Corporate motivation to implement OA is related to their basic goal of improving profitability. White collar worker needs are positioned in the larger context of their working environment and what is personally important to them. Based upon the substantial portion of office Worker time ...

    There is a perception these days that office workers are not as productive as they should be. Whether or not this is the case, the emerging office technology provides great potential to improve office productivity by introducing specific, computerized support tools to aid office workers. In this paper, we look at ways in which office workers can be better supported by providing computer-based tool... View full abstract»

    One of the key elements in Office Automation is information management. The increasing volume and complexity of business dealings have forced many companies to rely upon computers to help capture, distribute, store, and manage the information flow required in their day-to-day business operations. By having computers keep track of the details of the information, people are able to concentrate on th... View full abstract»

  • Dependence of the electric field on accumulation of a homocharge on the surface of a solid insulator

    Publication Year: 1983, Page(s):531 - 533
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (345 KB)

    Under certain conditions, the insulator surface may be charged negatively near the cathode and positively near the anode. Taking into account the surface charges, the electric field is calculated as a function of insulator length-and for two solid insulator materials at the interface, at the interior of the solid insulator and in the gap (gaseous or vacuum). An enhancement in the field is observed... View full abstract»

  • Compensated broad-band two-way 0° hybrid power splitters and combiners

    Publication Year: 1983, Page(s):533 - 534
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (196 KB)

    This letter proposes a simple technique of compensating the broad-band 0° hybrids, to obtain improved isolation characteristics. The compensation can typically enhance the low- and mid-band isolation by a factor of 25-40 dB, the high-band isolation by a factor of 5-10 dB, and the overall bandwidth by a factor of about one decade.

  • On the root computation of polynomials over a finite field using a stored table approach

    Publication Year: 1983, Page(s):538 - 539
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (250 KB)

    A method is proposed to compute the roots of a polynomial with degree four or less over a finite field. This method requires less computations and memory requirements than other methods, and it can achieve high-speed root computation. The proposed method for the root computation of a polynomial can be very useful to the high-speed BCH and Reed-Solomon decoding operations. View full abstract»

    A new geometric interpretation of minimum variance estimation is presented in terms of the dual of the well-known Pythagorean theorem. The problem of bad data detection among redundant measurements is analyzed and simplified using relationships developed by the dual theorem. View full abstract»

  • Interpolation of weighted-average samples using cubic B-spline functions

    An algebraic formulation is presented here to model the finite area sampling process in a more general form. Previously reported results are shown to be special cases of this formulation [4]. It also leads us to interpolate arbitrary weighted-average samples with better accuracy. Computer results show an order-of-magnitude improvement of accuracy over those of previous schemes View full abstract»
