    This article describes the extension of an already existing routing system and explores the feasibility of combining this with a field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based maze routing accelerator to speed up the routing process. The routing system makes use of a rip-up and reroute strategy and utilizes an evolution algorithm to make routing decisions. The FPGA hardware accelerator speeds up the p... View full abstract»

    This paper describes MP3 encoding, which allows compressed digital music and speech files to be stored and played on a variety of media, including personal computers and portable MP3 players. In music, there are different genres, and each genre has different characteristics based upon the range frequencies contained in the music. MP3 encoding can have different perceived effects for each genre of ... View full abstract»

    Magnetic levitation is a way of using electromagnetic fields to levitate objects without any noise. It employs diamagnetism, which is an intrinsic property of many materials referring to their ability to temporarily expel a portion of an external magnetic field. As a result, diamagnetic materials are repelled by strong magnetic fields. This repulsive force, however, is very weak compared with the ... View full abstract»

    A design approach to create small-sized, high-speed implementations of the keyed-hash message authentication code (HMAC) is the focus of this article. The approach showed that the critical path can be further reduced by exploiting special properties of the included hash functions. A significant design effort was made to keep the area low. The experimental results showed that a negligible area pena... View full abstract»

    Digital rights management broadly refers to a set of policies, techniques and tools that guide the proper use of digital content. A DRM plays important roles in several processes that are involved in the flow of content. The major functionalities of this DRM system are: packaging of the raw content for easy distribution and tracking, content protection for tamper-proof transmission, delivery of co...

    Many traditional and newer businesses and applications have recently been carrying out enormous amounts of electronic transactions, which have led to a critical need for protecting the information from being maliciously altered, for ensuring the authenticity, and for supporting nonrepudiation. Just as signatures facilitate validation and verification of the authenticity of paper documents, digital... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses various biosensors in detail, where the biosensor consists of bioelement and a sensor element. The bioelement may be an enzyme, antibody, living cells etc., and the sensing element may be electric current, electric potential, and so on. This survey initially introduces the basic concept of the biosensors. High-level overviews of different types of biosensors are given and the ... View full abstract»

    The European Union issued Directive 2002/95/EC on the restriction and use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. Known as Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), it will be enforced throughout the European community effective 1 July 2006. This new directive is catching on, with countries all over the world recognizing the directive and some incorporating it int... View full abstract»
