—This paper presents the design of three-and nine-stage voltage-controlled ring oscillators that were fabricated in TSMC 0.18-m CMOS technology with oscillation frequencies up to 5.9 GHz. The circuits use a multiple-pass loop architecture and delay stages with cross-coupled FETs to aid in the switching speed and to improve the noise parameters. Measurements… (More)
Move over Moses! You've got an honest competitor-finally! If the reader doesn't believe it, then he never has believed it. If he's a believer, then we've got a chance!". Throughout his childhood David Reynolds kept an eye on the past, entranced by family stories from Victorian London, as well as the present. In Swan River he shows how a child's.
—A senior-level design laboratory course is described, in which an optical fiber communication network is expanded or improved by successive generations of students. In this evolutionary approach, student teams base their work on the final written reports of students in previous course offerings. In addition to its primary goal of providing a high-level… (More)
