    A synthesis and optimization process is proposed and applied to the design of a specific MEMS device, namely an acceleration sensor. The design synthesis methodology exploits the fast and accurate simulation of the SUGAR tool (based on modified modal analysis) along with the full simulation capability of ANSYS (based on the finite element method). A three degrees-of-freedom piezoresistive accelera... View full abstract»

    During the initial development of the IEEE 802.11n (11n) amendment for improving the throughput of wireless LANs, a lot of excitement existed surrounding the potential higher throughput (i.e., faster downloads), and increased range (distance) achievable. However, delays in the development of this standard (which began in 2003, and is still in the final draft stages) as well as vendor, customer rel... View full abstract»

    Introductory treatments of feedback amplifiers commonly contain inconsistencies, or present results as universal when in fact they need qualification. Loop gain, overall gain, input impedance and output impedance are instances. A case can therefore be made for rigorous development, even in a first course, provided mathematical rigor can be combined with physical insight. A feedback factor H is fir... View full abstract»
