    A new evolutionary computing algorithm on the basis of "jumping genes" phenomenon is presented in this article. It emulates the gene transposition in the genome that was discovered by Nobel Laureate Dr. Barbara McClintock from her work on maize chromosome. The principle of jumping genes, adopted for evolutionary computing, is outlined and the procedures for executing the computational optimization... View full abstract»

    As feature size goes below 70 nm, process variation introduced device mismatch may cause over 40% performance variations and circuit failures especially for analog/mixed-signal designs. The location dependent correlations among devices and the large number of devices in some practical designs make it difficult to predict performance corners accurately and efficiently. This paper aims to provide an... View full abstract»

    Clock and data recovery (CDR) architectures used in high-speed wire-linked communication receivers are often shown as PLL or DLL based topologies. However, there are many other types of CDR architectures such as phase-interpolator, oversampling and injection locked based topologies. The best choice for the CDR topology will depend on the application and the specification requirements. This paper p... View full abstract»

    Patent protection is the most difficult intellectual property protection to acquire but it is also the most powerful. I am frequently asked the question, "What is patentable in the United States?" The answer is that four requirements must be satisfied in order to attain and maintain patent protection in the United States. Those four requirements correspond to sections of the patent statute that ar... View full abstract»
