—White Rabbit (WR) is the project name for a ambiguous project that uses Ethernet as both, deterministic (synchronous) data transfer and timing network. The presented design aims for a general purpose, fieldbus like transmission system, which provides deterministic data and timing to approximately 1000 timing stations. The main advantage over conventional… (More)
In this paper, the dynamic model with sensor and actuator for the articulated robotic arm is obtained by using the combination of the structural, the sensor, and the actuator dynamic models. The proposed approach is validated comparing the simulation results against the experimental results.
The recently proposed speaker diarization technique based on binary keys provides a very fast alternative to state-of-the-art systems with little increase of Diarization Error Rate (DER). Although the approach shows great potential, it also presents issues, mainly in the stopping criterion. Therefore, exploring alternative clustering/stopping criterion… (More)
Speaker diarization has become a key process within other speech processing systems which take advantage of single-speaker speech signals. Furthermore, finding recurrent speakers among a set of audio recordings, known as cross-show diarization, is gaining attention in the last years. Current state-of-the-art-systems provide good performance, but usually at… (More)
This paper presents an introduction to digital hardware design using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). After a historical introduction and a quick overview of digital design, the internal structure of a generic FPGA is discussed. Then we describe the design flow, i.e. the steps needed to go from design idea to actual working hardware. Digital signal… (More)

GENERAL ARCHITECTURE To cope with the user requirements  for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) era, a new system has to be developed for the acquisition and display of analog signals in the accelerator domain. OASIS, the Open Analog Signals Information System, extends the capabilities of the existing 'new Analogue observation system' (nAos) in many fronts:… (More)
The following paper describes the design and optimization method for a small inductor in printed circuit board, which is later used in the implementation of a flexible cooking surface prototype. The method combines analytical developments with finite element analysis (FEA) simulations, providing an important decrease of the computational costs. This is… (More)
