SUMMARY Products implementing the HomePlug 1.0 standard allowing high-speed communication on low-voltage powerlines have recently started arriving on the U.S. market for home and office networking without the requirement for installing new wires. Effective use of the powerline bandwidth requires robust physical (PHY) and medium access control (MAC)… (More)
The implementation of IDDQ test is increasingly challenging with the shrinking of process geometry in nanotechnologies. This paper presents a case study of the test challenges that the industry is facing in deep submicron process. An IDDQ manufacturing test strategy is discussed to address the challenges.
––The performance of a radar detector may become inaccurate when key parameters of the system are imprecise. Imprecise parameters are modeled here as fuzzy numbers. The Fuzzy Integrator detector is constructed for a Rician target in Rayleigh background. Results indicate that the precision of the detection performance decreases as parameter imprecision… (More)
