Approved for public release; distribution unlimited R-iii-PREFACE This report describes the research that RAND performed to support the efforts of the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) to design, develop, and implement a Prospective Payment System (PPS) for inpatient rehabilitation. It presents recommendations concerning the payment system and(More)
SUMMARY Distortion analysis of nonlinear circuits is very important for designing analog integrated circuits and communication systems. In this letter, we propose an efficient frequency-domain approach for calculating frequency response curves, which is based on HB (harmonic balance) method combining with ABMs (Analog Behavior Models) of Spice. Firstly,(More)
SUMMARY For designing integrated circuits and communication systems, it is very important to obtain the frequency-domain characteristics of nonlinear circuits. There are two kinds of the time-domain and frequency-domain methods. Although, first one can get the accurate steady-state waveform, it is unsuitable to calculate the frequency response curve [1,2].(More)
SUMMARY We propose here a fully Spice-oriented design algorithm of op-amps for attaining the maximum gains under low power consump-tions and assigned slew-rates. Our optimization algorithm is based on a well-known steepest descent method combining with nonlinear programming. The algorithm is realized by equivalent RC circuits with ABMs (analog behavior(More)
— There are many kinds of optimization techniques for designing high-performance RF circuits. In this paper, we propose a new frequency-domain Spice-oriented optimization algorithm using the steepest descent method. We have developed a simulator executing the frequency-domain analysis based on the harmonic balance (HB) method, where all the nonlinear(More)
In this study, bifurcation and complex phenomena in synchronizing chaotic oscillators coupled by a lossless transmission line are investigated. The period-doubling bifurca-tion with varying the time delay is observed in our circuit model. Further the voltage distribution of transmission line is simulated in order to investigate whether the current flowing(More)
