    A real-time video signal processing chip for video data compression which combines block truncation coding (BTC) and a conventional motion compensation (MC) algorithm is presented. The regularity and simplicity of the BTC algorithm strongly suggest that it is quite suitable for an efficient VLSI implementation. It is shown that the proposed BTC-based system is much better than the conventional sys... View full abstract»

    A three-dimensional digital color decoder system that converts composite NTSC or PAL video signals into cross color-free high picture quality digital video signals is described. In this system, the Y/C crosstalk is measured by means of three-dimensional filters which the authors have devised to adaptively control the three-dimensional Y/C separation filters. The algorithm is realized as hardware, ... View full abstract»

    In order to realize a narrow track recording mechanism for VCRs, the concept of DTF (dynamic track following) system using a small actuator was developed. A major problem in the DTF system for high-density recording lies in the mechanical vibration characteristics of the small actuator which moves the head. A damping control system with a velocity feedback loop for realizing high-performance DTF s... View full abstract»

  • Display controller IC for Amharic numerals

    Publication Year: 1993 , Page(s): 77 - 81
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (668 KB)  

    The design of a controller circuit for an Amharic numerical display is described. The Amharic numerals, comprising numerals from 0 to 19, are displayed on two 5×7 dot or light-emitting-diode matrixes. The circuit controls the state (i.e. on or off) of each dot to display the desired Amharic numerals. The design is compiled in an integrated circuit chip form using a silicon compiler tool. Pro...

    The performance evaluation of a three priority CEBus router handling traffic between the power line and twisted pair media is evaluated by simulation. The message and channel throughput and the message and packet delay are studied for a wide range of offered traffic loads. The router behaves well, according to message priority. The internetwork traffic shows a larger delay than intranetwork traffi... View full abstract»

    In some European countries, the electric power stations sends out controlling codes modulated onto the net frequency in order to synchronize all the public timers. These features are detected as modulated noise by the light controllers in the house. A digital filtering technique that does not require a dedicated digital signal processor is presented. A small, low-cost, 8-b processor is used to han... View full abstract»

    A switched-capacitor (SC) implementation for a semisystolic realization of a 2D recursive filter structure is presented. The structure is capable of operating at video rates and is amenable to VLSI fabrication, due to the application of systolic array architecture and SC circuit techniques. The folded-cascode CMOS operational amplifier (op-amp) topology is adopted because it yields high performanc... View full abstract»
