    Recently developed modulation-doped field-effect transistors (MODFETs) now hold the record for high-speed logic. In this device structure only the larger bandgap (Al,Ga)As layer is doped with donors and the GaAs layer is left undoped. Electrons minimize their energy by diffusing out of the (Al,Ga)As into the lower potential GaAs where they form a two-dimensional electron gas near the heterointerfa... View full abstract»

    Beginning in the 1850s, some eminent scientists such as Robert Hare, Alfred Russel Wallace, and Sir William Crookes investigated the claims of spiritualist mediums and believed that they had demonstrated scientifically the existence of psychic phenomena. Critics, without examining the evidence, dismissed the claims out of hand and charged the offending scientists with gross incompetence or with fr... View full abstract»

    The IBM Yorktown Simulation Engine (YSE) is a special-purpose, highly parallel programmable machine for the gate-level simulation of logic. A YSE has been constructed at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center. A full configured YSE could simulate up to two million gates at a speed of over three billion gate simulations per second, it is estimated that a YSE could simulate an IBM 3081 processor, at t...

    Traditionally, the bulk of computer system functionality is implemented in the software medium, as a sequence of instructions for a general-purpose processor. Historically, this has provided the best balance of flexibility, cost, and performance. The new economics of VLSI and continuing advances in VLSI CAD capability open the possibility of application-specific functionality embedded in silicon a... View full abstract»

  • Technology transfer between VLSI design and software engineering: CAD tools and design methodologies

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):875 - 885
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1152 KB)

    Recent research on the explicit transfer of technology used in computer-aided design (CAD) tools and design methodologies is reported. First, several examples are given of applications of these technologies to software engineering. Then, three research projects are described which focused on applying software engineering principles to the VLSI design process. They are: a methodology, language, and... View full abstract»

  • Temperature dependence of the force-frequency effect in noncentral AT-cut quartz resonators

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):889 - 890

    Experimental results are presented on the temperature dependence of the force-frequency effect in AT-cut quartz resonators with noncentral electrodes. It is shown that there exist at least two geometries in which this dependence is eliminated. Possibilities for use in force-measuring devices are discussed. View full abstract»

  • A simpler test set for two-variable very strict Hurwitz polynomials

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):890 - 891
    Cited by:  Papers (4)

    A simpler procedure to test a given two-variable polynomial to be a very strict Hurwitz polynomial is presented. This procedure involves four steps instead of the six in the previously published method. A continuity-based proof for the above test is also presented. View full abstract»

  • An iterative approach to reduced-order modeling of synchronous machines using singular perturbation

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):892 - 893

    An iterative method is proposed to derive multi-time-scale reduced-order models of synchronous machines. The method is based on the theory of singular perturbation. The results are compared with those obtained using the classical quasi-steady-state (qss) technique. The approach presented improves the accuracy of the reduced-order models. View full abstract»
