    Whether a computer is in a corporation, government agency, university, small business, or at home, if it is linked to a network, hackers are a risk. The first line of defense against them is a firewall, provided it is set up correctly. Firewall technology is a set of mechanisms that collectively enforce a security policy on communication traffic entering or leaving a guarded network domain. The se... View full abstract»

    The appetite for ever increasing computing power and interconnection bandwidth could be sated by vertical-cavity, surface-emitting lasers (VCSEL) for optical data communication. Made inexpensively using IC processing techniques, they can be diced in planar or linear arrays, such as in the wavelength-division multiplexer. The author discusses the essentials of semiconductor light sources, epitaxial... View full abstract»

    The need of popular portable electronics for long battery life is placing power reduction at the top of every IC design engineer's to-do list. A new breed of design automation tools is helping them scrimp on power at every step of the VLSI design process. The automation tools can be differentiated, to a first order, by the level of abstraction on which they operate. Lowest of all are the transisto... View full abstract»
