    The store-and-forward buffer required for asynchronous data interpolation (ADI) in analogue speech is analysed using a queueing model with single server having 1st-order Markov interruptions. The buffer-content probability generating function and probability mass function are derived. It is shown that the empty-buffer probability in the finite buffer equals that of the infinite buffer with its off... View full abstract»

    A discrete adaptive equaliser for synchronous data transmission is presented, based on fast convolution techniques and efficient Fourier transform computation algorithms. Mean-square error minimisation is automatically performed in the discrete frequency domain by using Rosen's gradient projection method. Algorithms are developed to enable the equaliser control to estimate both mean-square error g... View full abstract»

  • String-processing chip designed in VLSI

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):245 - 249

    A data path suitable for a string-processing machine has been designed, for fabrication in n MOS VLSI. The machine, which is called Henry, is suitable for recognising patterns, and for making insertions and deletions within a string of characters. It is designed to be `byte-sliced¿¿, and a production Henry would process a whole line of characters in parallel. Associated with each byte is a mask bi... View full abstract»

  • Fast transform procedure for the generation of near-minimal covers of Boolean functions

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):250 - 254

    A new and efficient technique for the generation of near-minimal covers of Boolean functions is described. For the identification of all prime implicants covering a particular minterm, use is made of a fast in-place transformation. Crucial points in such covering procedures are the decision which of the minterms to process next and which of its prime implicants to use in the near-minimal cover. Bo... View full abstract»

  • Aspects of memory hierarchy concepts extended to microcode-store level

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):255 - 257
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (470 KB)

    The high speed buffer or cache type of memory hierarchy is a widely used technique to provide an effective memory access speed up in the main memory of a computer system. The paper reviews the potential of extending cache techniques to the control memory level of a computer. A brief introductory review is made of microprogramming and cache techniques before discussing control-store cache applicati... View full abstract»
