    An inverse circuit method is presented for performing computer-aided, open-loop circuit analysis. The analytical method consists of placing the circuit to be analyzed into the feedback loop of a high-gain differential current amplifier model. The gain of the resultant circuit is the inverse of the original gain. Also, the roles of the input and output are interchanged and the input to the original... View full abstract»

    A variety of photonic switching techniques have been studied from the viewpoint of expanding switching-mode throughput. The basic issue discussed is how the high bandwidths of optical devices can be applied to switching nodes. It is shown that a high time-domain bandwidth allows high-speed signal transmission without waveform distortion, a high frequency-domain bandwidth allows a system to accommo... View full abstract»

    A family of CMOS integrated circuits called field programmable interconnect components (FPICs) that can provide designers with the high-density interconnect architectures for making programmable hardware a reality is discussed. The FPIC devices address a broad spectrum of interconnect needs, including system prototypes and breadboards, user-specific/configurable printed circuit boards (PCBs), appl... View full abstract»

  • Holmium-YAG lasers expand surgical scope

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):43 - 48
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (638 KB)

    The surgical applications of the pulsed Ho:YAG laser are discussed. The laser operates at a wavelength that is absorbed by water so that its effect on tissue is localized and thermal damage to surrounding tissue is minimized. Because the water in tissue absorbs laser energy, the laser has a consistent effect regardless of tissue color. Its wavelength (2.10 microns) is highly transmitted by optical... View full abstract»

  • Optical computing advances logically for image processing

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):27 - 36
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (848 KB)

    A powerful application of optical computation, digital optical cellular image processing (DOCIP), is discussed. DOCIP uses digital optical computing techniques to perform cellular logic operations or extended array functions on images. Cellular logic is reviewed, and a binary image algebra (BlA) that serves as an analysis and synthesis tool for cellular image processing systems is described. Some ... View full abstract»
