The escalating cost for Next Generation Lithography (NGL) tools is driven in part by the need for complex sources and optics. The cost for a single NGL tool could exceed $50M in the next few years, a prohibitive number for many companies. As a result, several researchers are looking at low cost alternative methods for printing sub-100 nm features. In the(More)
The TT1 (Toppo Telescope #1) is a 1.54 m Alt-Az telescope designed and built by the Technology Working Group (TWG) of the Astronomical Observatory of Capodimonte (OAC), Naples Italy. The standardization process is of course one of the fundamental requirements for telescope control system design and development, well considered in the TT1 design. In this(More)
There are many challenging tasks in the design of the beamline instrumentation that relate to high precision positioning mechanism for users at a third-generation synchrotron radiation source, such as the 7 GeV Advanced Photon Source (APS). Over the last few years, progress has been made in the development of novel mechanisms with high positioning(More)
This paper presents a detailed analysis of Wr@p<sup>1</sup> technology (Web Ready Appliances Protocol, formerly Power Modulation), an ultra-low-cost powerline communication solution conceived for the electrical appliance market. Wr@p technology aims at making household appliances capable of network communication without significantly affecting their(More)
Neural network models (NN) have emerged as important components for applications of adaptive control theories. Their basic generalization capability, based on acquired knowledge, together with execution rapidity and correlation ability between input stimula, are basic attributes to consider NN as an extremely powerful tool for on-line control of complex(More)
The VST (VLT Survey Telescope) is a 2.6 m class Alt-Az telescope to be installed at Mount Paranal in Chile, in the European Southern Observatory (ESO) site. The VST is a wide-field imaging facility planned to supply databases for the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT) science and carry out stand-alone observations in the UV to I spectral range. So far no(More)
Recently, neural network models (NN), such as the MultiLayer Perceptron (MLP), have emerged as important components for applications of adaptive control theories. Their intrinsic generalization capability, based on acquired knowledge, together with execution rapidity and correlation ability between input stimula, are basic attributes to consider MLP as an(More)
The VST (VLT Survey Telescope) is a 2.6 m class Alt-Az telescope to be installed at Mount Paranal in the Atacama desert, Chile, on the European Southern Observatory (ESO) site. The VST is a wide-field imaging facility planned to supply databases for the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT) science and carry out stand-alone observations in the UV to I spectral(More)
