Digital color halftoning is the process of transforming continuous-tone color images into images with a limited number of colors. The importance of this process arises from the fact that many color imaging systems use output devices such as color printers and low-bit depth displays that are bilevel or multilevel with a few levels. The goal is to create the(More)
The quality of products from a machine tool system is largely determined by the tolerances maintained, which is a function of how well the desired contour is tracked. To mitigate contour errors in a three axis machine tool feed drive system, the control development in this paper is based on an error system that is transformed into tangential, normal and(More)
—This paper investigates the spatial correlation characteristics of multiple antenna arrays deployed in wireless communication systems. First, we derive a general closed-form formula for the spatial correlation function (SCF) of a multiple antenna array with arbitrary array configuration under uniform signal angular energy distribution. Based on this(More)
The successful use of the Design of Experiments (DOE) and Response Surface Modeling (RSM) approaches in an optimization study for a multilayer interdigitated passband filter is presented. The medium of interest is Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) and the frequency band is in the 60 GHz range. The two figures of merit chosen are the resonating frequency f o and(More)
—This paper deals with adaptive antenna array beamform-ing under spatial information uncertainties including steering angle mismatch, random perturbations in array sensor positions, and mutual coupling between antenna array sensors. To make antenna array beamformers robust against the spatial information uncertainties, we present an iterative method to(More)
—Antenna array beamformers suffer from performance deterioration in the presence of mutual coupling (MC) between array sensors. In this paper, we present a theoretical analysis in terms of the output signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) for the performance of antenna array beamformers under MC effects. Based on the model of a distortion matrix to(More)
—A linearly constrained minimum variance (LCMV) antenna array beamformer using finite data samples suffers from slow convergence when the received array data contain the desired signal. It has been reported that signal blocking techniques speed up the convergence rate and increase the robustness of LCMV antenna array beamformers. However, the reason of this(More)
—This paper deals with adaptive array beamforming in the presence of errors due to steering vector mismatch and finite sample effect. Diagonal loading (DL) is one of the widely used techniques for dealing with these errors. However, the main drawback of DL techniques is that there is not an easy and reliable manner to determine the required loading factor.(More)
