Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) suffer from the lack of wired infrastructure. Each node needs its own power supply, e.g. batteries or energy harvesting systems (EHSs). Typically, EHSs can extend the lifetime of a sensor node or even enable perpetual operation. Due to the high variation of harvestable energy of the environment, the design of the EHSs has to(More)
Teaching wireless sensor networks (WSNs) only theoretically is not sufficient to understand the complex interaction of these networks. WSNs consist of sensor nodes which measure physical quantities of their environment, preprocess the measured data, and transmit it towards a base station in a multi-hop manner. WSNs are typically used in application areas(More)
This paper presents the results of a performance analysis of a system based on measured backplane data published for the XAUI HM-Zd evaluation backplane. This analysis traces the impact of near end and far end crosstalk on bit error rate, and compares results from three different methods for estimating bit error rate in the presence of crosstalk.
Clock recovery loop behavior can seriously affect the performance of a high speed serial channel, and yet very little definitive data is available on the performance of the clock recovery loops in SerDes macros. This paper introduces a method for extracting the jitter transfer function and pattern dependent jitter from an IBIS-AMI model under realistic(More)
