    Fifteen years ago mobile telephones were an exotic extravagance. Today, as cellular phones, they are often given away as freebies in support of marketing schemes and product promotions. Having become a mainstream voice communication medium, they are poised to take on new challenges, transmitting (fairly) high-speed data, video and multimedia traffic as well as voice signals to users on the move.

    Embedded memory blocks are extremely common in application-specific IC (ASIC) chips. In this era of design reuse, it is critical that these memory macros, as they are also called, should be as versatile as possible. Their performance should be optimal, with adequate sense amplifier signal over the full manufacturing process range of the chip. Fortunately, several simple techniques exist for adapti...

    Computer-based systems are expected to be more and more dependable. For that, they have to operate correctly even in the presence of faults, and this fault tolerance of theirs must be thoroughly tested by the injection of faults both real and artificial. Users should start to request reports from manufacturers on the outcomes of such experiments, and on the mechanisms built into systems to handle ... View full abstract»
