    For high-speed internet access, high-performance analog front-ends are needed, and data converters are one of the crucial building blocks in these bent-ends. In this article we will report on the modeling and design of a D/A conversion interface for a DMT (discrete multi tone)-based ADSL system that could be integrated into a complete CMOS analog front-end. We will discuss the DMT transmit spectru... View full abstract»

    Product development at the Stanley Works is now much more centralized than it was previously. Engineers are focusing on fundamental design problems, and their goal is to totally reinvent the basic tools rather than just make incremental improvements on existing designs. Not surprisingly, ergonomics is playing a major role in the development of new hand tools View full abstract»

    Carrier lifetimes in semiconductors have been recently rediscovered by the silicon IC community. This is an opportune time to discuss this topic since lifetime is emerging as an important parameter for describing material, process, and equipment cleanliness after being ignored for many years. This article tries to shed some light on “lifetimes in semiconductors,” which is a topic that ... View full abstract»

    The performance of an SDM is reported to decline by various factors produced during the design and fabrication process. Namely, the nonideal factors are: the limit of the operational amplifier (op-amp) output swing, the finite DC gain of the op-amp, op-amp slew rate, the integrator gain error by mismatching of the capacitor and nonideality of the internal multibit quantizer. In this article we rep... View full abstract»

    In this era of high-end microelectronic integrated-circuit processing there are numerous examples of practical circuit designs containing many tens of thousands of transistors. The state-of-the-art for semiconductor photonic integrated circuits-those in which the information is carried entirely by optical rather than electrical signals-has been limited, however, to only a handful of devices. This ... View full abstract»
