A new interconnect solution with plastic waveguide is demonstrated. The system consists of a pair of transceivers and a plastic waveguide. Millimeter wave signal is transmitted in a low-cost long piece of solid plastic dielectric acting as a waveguide. The plastic waveguide medium offers a large bandwidth for data communication using mm-wave carrier(More)
Serial data links are often designed targeting a specific transmission medium. High-speed links using different predetermined transmission media have been demonstrated in the past [1-3]. This, however, restricts user’s ability to use an integrated link interface with other transmission media once the chip is fabricated. For example, traditional transceivers(More)
A large down-conversion of the carrier signal is required in a millimeter-wave receiver. However, since a steep filter in the millimeter-wave band is not available, a heterodyne architecture is commonly used, which increases the power consumption of the receiver. To realize low-power consumption in a millimeter-wave receiver, low intermediate frequency(More)
A speed sensorless vector control (SLV) for rolling stock is introduced. The proposed SLV system meets the typical performance parameters of rolling stock, including initial speed estimation, stability in one-pulse mode operation, multiple motor drive operations, readhesion control using slip detection by estimated speed, and so on. In particular, we(More)
The growing demand for high-speed, low-cost, and low-overhead I/Os in today’s electronic systems, has been addressed by three general categories of interconnects: electrical, optical, and wireless. The electrical interconnects are the oldest and have improved the most, where bit rates in excess of 20Gb/s are achieved over a pair of conductors [1]. At such(More)
