• ### A 5-GHz-Band CMOS Receiver With Low LO Self-Mixing Front End

Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):705 - 713

| | PDF (2414 KB) | HTML

A 5.0-GHz-band monolithic direct-conversion receiver front end employing subharmonic mixers (SHMs) is demonstrated in 0.18-mum CMOS technology. Instead of using transistors as transconductors, the SHMs adopt on-chip 1:4 transformers to achieve voltage gain, and hence, excellent local-oscillator self-mixing suppression and good linearity can be obtained. Additionally, a CMOS-compatible postprocess ... View full abstract»

Two classes of techniques have been developed to whiten the quantization noise in digital delta-sigma modulators (DDSMs): deterministic and stochastic. In this two-part paper, a design methodology for reduced-complexity DDSMs is presented. The design methodology is based on error masking. Rules for selecting the word lengths of the stages in multistage architectures are presented. We show that the... View full abstract»

• ### Modeling, Quantitative Analysis, and Design of Switched-Current Pipeline A/D Converters

Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):727 - 739

| | PDF (1100 KB) | HTML

Switched-current (SI) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are desirable for biomedical applications. Until now, SI ADCs are lacking effective and systematic computer-aided analysis and design (CAD) tools, particularly for noise. In this paper, models for different SI multiplying-digital-to-analog-converter (MDAC) designs are analytically derived, with the inclusion of distortion and noise. The mod... View full abstract»

• ### Frequency-Dependent Sampling Linearity

| | PDF (1517 KB) | HTML

A novel model predicts tracking nonlinearity (NL) in the form of harmonic distortion (HD) for weakly nonlinear (i.e., SFDR > 30 dBc) first-order open-loop sampling circuits. The mechanisms for the NL are exponential settling, amplitude modulation, phase modulation, and discrete-time modulation. The model demonstrates that HD typically increases at 20 dB per decade over most standard oper... View full abstract»

• ### Verifying Functional Specifications by Regression Techniques on Lissajous Test Signatures

Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):754 - 762
Cited by:  Papers (15)
| | PDF (1868 KB) | HTML

In this paper, a low-cost method to verify functional specifications of analog VLSI circuits is proposed. The method is based on the analysis of Lissajous signatures combined with regression techniques. In order to obtain Lissajous signatures, the observation space is partitioned into zones using hyperplanes, and a set of integer values used as the digital signature of the circuit is generated by ...

A 5.0/3.3/1.8-V tolerant I/O buffer implemented using typical CMOS 2P4M 0.35-mum process is proposed in this paper. Unlike traditional mixed-voltage-tolerant I/O buffers, the proposed I/O buffer can transmit and receive signals with voltage levels of 5.0/3.3/1.8 V. By using a stacked PMOS and a stacked NMOS at the output stage and a dynamic gate bias generator providing appropriate control voltage... View full abstract»

• ### Intersignal Timing Skew Compensation of Parallel Links With Voltage-Mode Incremental Signaling

Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):773 - 783
Cited by:  Papers (6)
| | PDF (1098 KB) | HTML

Intersignal timing skew gives rise to reduced timing margins at receivers and limits the data rate of parallel links. This paper proposes a new intersignal timing-skew-compensation technique for parallel links with voltage-mode incremental signaling. The proposed technique employs an early/late block to detect the rising and falling edges of the pulses generated by intersignal timing skews at the ... View full abstract»

• ### Mixed-Radix Algorithm for the Computation of Forward and Inverse MDCTs

Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):784 - 794

| | PDF (1120 KB) | HTML

The modified discrete cosine transform (MDCT) and inverse MDCT (IMDCT) are two of the most computationally intensive operations in MPEG audio coding standards. A new mixed-radix algorithm for efficiently computing the MDCT/IMDCT is presented. The proposed mixed-radix MDCT algorithm is composed of two recursive algorithms. The first algorithm, called the radix-2 decimation-in-frequency algorithm, i... View full abstract»

• ### A New Class of Reciprocal–Orthogonal Parametric Transforms

Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):795 - 805
Cited by:  Papers (15)
| | PDF (542 KB) | HTML

In this paper, a new class of reciprocal-orthogonal parametric (ROP) transforms having 3N/2 independent parameters for a sequence length N that is a power of two is proposed. The basic idea behind the proposed transforms is to appropriately combine a new parametric kernel with that of the well-known Walsh-Hadamard transform that results in a square parametric matrix operator of order N View full abstract»

In this paper, a theoretical approach for studying the robustness of the chaotic statistics of piecewise affine maps with respect to parameter perturbations is discussed. The approach is oriented toward the study of the effects that the nonidealities derived from the circuit implementation of these chaotic systems have on their dynamics. The ergodic behavior of these systems is discussed in detail... View full abstract»

| | PDF (502 KB) | HTML

In this paper, detection and estimation of weak signals in chaotic clutter with unknown dynamics are presented. We achieve this in three steps. First, by using Takens' delay embedding theorem and support vector machines (SVMs), the dynamics of the clutter is modeled by training SVMs with a known data set. Second, we augment the model with coupled chaotic synchronization scheme so that a better est... View full abstract»

In this paper, we focus on the problem of driving a general network to a selected cluster synchronization pattern by means of a pinning control strategy. Sufficient conditions are presented to guarantee the realization of the cluster synchronization pattern for all initial values. We also show the detailed steps on how to construct the coupling matrix and to modify the control strengths. Moreover,... View full abstract»

The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, we derive a necessary and sufficient condition for local synchronization in coupled map lattices (CMLs) with symmetric coupling. In particular, we also identify the best choice of coupling strength in the sense that such a coupling strength gives the fastest convergence rate of initial values toward the synchronous manifold. Furthermore, such a coupling... View full abstract»

This paper focuses on studying the H infin and generalized H 2 filtering problems for a class of delayed neural networks. The time-varying delay is only required to be continuous and bounded. Delay-dependent criteria are proposed such that the resulting filtering error system is globally exponentially stable with a guaranteed H infin or general... View full abstract»
