    Optical fibre has become the preferred terrestrial transmission medium for telecommunications. The single-mode fibre, which has superior transmission quality due to the absence of modal noise and low loss, offers an enormous bandwidth, in the order of thousands of gigahertz. Various access techniques have been proposed to tap this bandwidth by introducing concurrency among users in the network. Co... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2936 KB)

    An overview is presented of digital VLSI implementations of artificial neural networks (ANNs) configured as multilayer perceptrons employing the backpropagation learning algorithm. Several other network architectures and learning algorithms are also mentioned for comparison. We focus on those implementations which employ parallel hardware in the learning computations, not simply in the retrieval o... View full abstract»

    In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the field of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). But at present, there is no rule or formula that can give adequate ANN design parameters for a given task. To find these parameters, the developer has to rely on his expertise, on simulation results and on analysis of the learning behaviour of different ANN configurations. Current ANN simulators o...

  • Effect of chip failures on cache memory systems using copy-back

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):35 - 38

    In this paper, a model is developed to calculate the degradation in the expected Read time of cache memory systems due to memory-chip failures. The main memory update algorithm is copy-back. The model is applied to a typical system, and it is shown that changes in the Recovery time or the work-load have the greatest effect on the degradation if the probability of a word being overwritten in cache ...

  • An adaptive pole-shifting algorithm and its implementation for reference tracking of a DC drive using a DSP chip

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):39 - 48
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1985 KB)

    A strategy for the design of a single-input and single-output self-tuning controller for reference-signal tracking is described in this paper. An existing algorithm for shifting the closed-loop poles radially towards the origin in the z-domain for regulation has been utilized for reference-signal tracking, by combining it with a well-known control law. The use of a self-searching pole-shifting tec... View full abstract»

  • An improved technique for realization of switched-capacitor filters from LC networks

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):49 - 56
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2717 KB)

    A systematic approach for the synthesis of switched-capacitor (SC) filters is presented based on (1) the nodal potential relation of passive doubly terminated LC networks (i.e., LC filters), represented in matrix form using a virtual vector to express the variables; (2) switched-capacitor fundamental blocks constructed with customary SC integrator circuit structures. The main feature of our new te... View full abstract»
