    While much of the attention regarding virtualization in the software community has been focused on server applications, embedded applications can also benefit from the latest advances in multicore processors and hardware support for virtualization. Multicore processors offer a unique means to combine new features with legacy code and to host multiple operating systems (OSs) on a single platform. For example, a highly integrated system can be constructed with a real-time OS (RTOS) and a general-purpose OS (GPOS) running on separate cores of a single processor. View full abstract»

    In this article, we consider the degradation in the DAT loops performance caused by a gradual increase in backlash of the valve actuator (valve leakage) and several disturbances that occur in the process. The objective of this study is to develop automated strategies for fault detection, diagnosis, and isolation (FDDI) based on frequency and spectral analysis of the system response and an interactive multiple model (IMM) based on the unscented Kalman filter (UKF) estimation technique to the problem of FDDI of the valve actuator failures in DAT loops of the HVAC systems. The performance of the IMM-UKF is compared with that obtained by using the frequency analysis (FA). Both techniques are HVAC model driven-based, and the simulations results reveal the superiority of the IMM-UKF algorithm concerning its accuracy and robustness to the changes in the system structure parameters. The FDDI based on the IMM algorithm is implemented in a simulation environment, and the fault diagnosis results are presented for a several fault scenarios in terms of mode probabilities and active fault index.

    Industrial automation has been dominated by fieldbuses for several decades. Legacy fieldbuses, such as Profibus, were able to provide the required functions, as they were precisely tailored to automation needs. Fieldbuses represent a complex communication solution for automation, and they define automation-specific physical and link layers and a dedicated communication object model. Nevertheless, Ethernet-based communication ubiquitously appearing in offices fostered temptations to bring Ethernet to production. Ethernet provides market-proven cost-effective hardware components with high data rates and immense integration and network management support using the overlaid management protocols. However, Ethernet has not been designed for industrial applications and would fail to fulfill requirements of industrial automation in its generic form. Hence, adaptations in both end devices and sometimes even switching devices had to be carried out. Finally, various industrial requirements were met, and Ethernet-based fieldbuses became state-of-the-art technologies competing with legacy fieldbuses. View full abstract»

  • Adaptive On-Time Converters

    Pulse frequency modulation (PFM) converters are fast in response and simple in design and implementation because compensation is not required. However, the large variation of switching frequency during operation introduces electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems. This article proposes a mixed analog and digital adaptive on-time (AOT) controller for PFM converters so that the switching frequency can be maintained constant adaptively, while the transient response is not degraded. The transient response is handled by an analog controller, which is fast. The switching frequency regulation is implemented by a digital microcontroller. View full abstract»

  • The Early History of Radar [Historical]

    The history of radar has often been told by the nations who used it to win World War II (WWII). History books often stated that radar won the war for the Allies. This is probably an overstatement, as both sides used radar. Research on radar started in eight nations well before WWII: France, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The first evidence of the radar principle sprung from wireless technology as early as 1897, when Alexander Popov observed interference caused by a passing ship while he was transmitting wireless signals.
