There is a continuous drive for methodologies and approaches of low power design. This is mainly driven by the surge in portable computing. On the other hand, the design of low power systems for different portable applications is not a simple task. This is because of the number of constraints that influence the power consumption of a device. In addition to(More)
In this paper, the authors present implementation of a number of low power FIR filter architectures to design reuse-able, programmable and parameterized soft FIR filter IP Cores and compare their performance in terms of area and power. An overall 22.1% power saving is achieved. The paper provides an analysis of the programmable cores and the impact of their(More)
Since its first inception, the discrete complex image method (DCIM) has been criticized for the lack of a proper prediction algorithm of the error incurred during the process. Although the method has been improved and modified several times, not being able to input any prior specification or to get any meaningful assessment on the error deters(More)
We approach "nite impulse response (FIR) equalization problem from an H perspective. First, we formulate the calculation of the optimal H performance for a given equalization setting as a semide"nite programming (SDP) problem. H criterion provides a set of FIR equalizers with di!erent optimality properties. Among these, we formulate the calculation of(More)
The discrete complex image method (DCIM) has been well-established and widely employed as a tool to compute spatial-domain Green's functions in planar multilayered media. Although the use of the DCIM in conjunction with the method of moments has been quite satisfactory for the efficient analysis of printed structures in layered media, it has not been(More)
