Computer hardware components have changed significantly since the 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s, and even since the early 1990’s. All work concerning Rent’s Rule prior to the present paper has been based on a 1971 interpretation of two unpublished memoranda written in 1960 by E. F. Rent at IBM, even though today’s computer components are significantly different(More)
Research on Rent’s rule in electrical engineering, the applied sciences, and technology has been based on the publication of a 1971 interpretation of Rent’s memoranda by B. S. Landman and R. L. Russo. Because of the wide impact of Rent’s work and requests from researchers, we present his original memoranda in this paper. We review the impact of Rent’s work(More)
Ultralarge-scale integrated (ULSI) chip design data is needed for an assessment of existing on-chip wirelength distribution models. Data extracted from modern chips such as high-performance microprocessors provide information about actual wirelength requirements in ULSI chip designs. These requirements are compared with wirelength estimates obtained by(More)
This paper presents a comprehensive assessment of interconnect requirements in ULSI control logic circuitry and quantifies the agreement observed (1) between estimates and measurements of average wire-length in individual designs in real chips, and (2) between wire-length distributions provided by the models and wire-length distributions obtained from(More)
This paper presents applications of a generalized theoretical analysis of Tsui’s phase measurement approach to detection of N – 1 ultraweak signals. A closed-form analytical expression is obtained for one application. A detection approach is presented for real-time estimation of the slope and curvature of sampled data of the instantaneous frequency. This(More)
This paper presents a generalized theoretical analysis of Tsui’s phase measurement approach for the situation in which there are N simultaneous signals, where one of the signals is strong and N − 1 signals are weak. Signal amplitudes are normalized to the amplitude of the strongest signal. This approach provides the capability to extract values of the(More)
This paper describes an interdisciplinary undergraduate research program in STEM fields intended to motivate female students to graduate with STEM degrees. The goal of the dual-role approach is to provide unique mentorship from distinguished technical leaders to female students while the students simultaneously pursue STEM research as a team. The students(More)
