Signature Driven Hierarchical Post-Manufacture Tuning of RF Systems for Performance and Power

Signature Driven Hierarchical Post-Manufacture Tuning of RF Systems for Performance and Power

Integration of RF circuits in deeply scaled CMOS technologies and severe process variation in those technology nodes result in poor manufacturing yield. A post-manufacture tuning approach for yield improvement of RF systems is developed in this paper that uses hierarchical behavioral models of the RF systems. The proposed method first determines module-level performances from the […]

VLSI implementation of coupled MRF model using pulse-coupled phase oscillators

  Abstract Efficient pixel-parallel image processing using a pulse-coupled phase oscillator model and its very large scale integration (VLSI) implementation is proposed. A processing unit that corresponds to a pixel of an image transmits spike pulses to other units, and updates its own analogue state value at timing when spikes come from other units. From a VLSI implementation point of […]
