  • The integration of computing and control

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):1 - 7
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1260 KB)

    The author argues the case for closer ties between the computing and control disciplines, using illustrations drawn from products in everyday use, and from a brief examination of automated manufacturing. The link between market requirements and trends in electronics manufacture is discussed. Some topics are advanced for further consideration. View full abstract»

  • Low-complexity functional approach to logic controller design

    Publication Year: 1985
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1722 KB)

    The paper addresses two problems associated with the design of large-scale logic controllers. The first problem is concerned with the difficulty in comprehending logic-controller design specifications which are traditionally based on low-level design description languages. The second problem is concerned with the difficulty of designing high-speed programmable logic controllers which are usually b... View full abstract»

  • Design methodology for self-timed VLSI systems

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):25 - 32
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1104 KB)

    A design methodology for self-timed VLSI systems is proposed. This includes a language for describing algorithmic behaviour which is based on the data-flow concept. A subclass of Petri nets is introduced to model the designed system, and a refinement technique is presented that allows for the synthesis of correct-by-construction systems. Finally, a systematic means for implementing the design is g... View full abstract»

  • Some shifting methods for matrix multiplication

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):33 - 44
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1068 KB)

    This paper deals with inner and direct matrix-multiplication methods for the matrices of the following orders: 4 ¿¿ 4 by 4 ¿¿ 4 or 1 ¿¿ 4 (vector) by 4 ¿¿ 4. Those matrix-multiplication methods are used when modelling the scenes in computer graphics. The matrices are multiplied when the corresponding elements are multiplied simultaneously. In contrast to the standard matrix-multiplication method, ... View full abstract»

    A new switching technique called `virtual cut-through¿¿ has been recently proposed for computer communication networks. The paper presents the analysis of `virtual cut-through¿¿ for multipacket messages. Also introduced is a modified virtual cut-through switching technique that allows partial cuts. The performance analysis of partial cuts is presented. Partial cuts have been shown to be more advan... View full abstract»
