    The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) adopted the nickname the Flames in reference to the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, so it's only fitting that the university's IEEE Student Branch (SB) possesses the ability to rebuild quickly. The SB was looking to boost its profile and by keeping its Web site and events simple and remaining steadfast in networking, participation has increased in less than ... View full abstract»

    Imagine a world where those with ear problems could buy electronic cochleas and those with eye problems, electronic retinas on Amazon and eBay. Imagine a world where all problematic human organs can be electronically replaceable to push humans toward the grail of immortality. All this might not be just imagination years from now if neuromorphic circuits continue to advance. Neuromorphs, or artific... View full abstract»

    Gigabit Ethernet is a popular broadband technology for good reason. It not only can transfer large amounts of data through a large network at high speeds, but it also is a mature technology with an appealing performance to cost-of-ownership ratio. Unfortunately, though, gigabit Ethernet suffers a performance drop when it is handling traffic with small packets: it tends to lose them. This is a seri... View full abstract»

    The four dominant types of high-voltage transmission cable -paper insulated oil filled (OF), cross-linked polyethylene insulated, oil filled, gas insulated, and high-temperature superconducting - offer a variety of advantages, disadvantages, and potential for future development. So does an emerging technology, high-temperature superconducting cable. This article examines them all and assesses thei... View full abstract»

    CMP has come a long way from its beginnings as just a simple method for polishing oxide materials to a smooth, finished surface. Today, chemical-mechanical planarization plays a critical role in contemporary integrated circuit processing, and it will still be needed for at least the next ten years as the scale of IC geometries continues to shrink. A multitude of R&D activities focus on various... View full abstract»

    The PSW-NOP is a low-cost solution to the error detection problem because multiple versions of code or hardware redundancy are not needed. The approach is useful in creating dependable software, especially in deep-submicron ICs. It also supplements to existing approaches of control-flow error detection. View full abstract»
