Bus performances are extremely important in a platform-based design. System Level analysis of bus performances gives important information for the analysis and choice between different architectures driven by functional, timing and power constraints of the System-on-Chip. This paper presents the effect of different arbitration algorithms and bus usage(More)
In this paper a simulator for the statistical analysis of analog CMOS integrated circuits affected by technological tolerance effects, including device mismatch, is presented. The tool, able to perform dc, ac, and transient analyses, is based on a rigorous formulation of circuit equations starting from the modified nodal analysis and including random(More)
The specification on power consumption of a digital system is extremely important due to the growing relevance of the market of portable devices and must be taken into account since the early phases of a complex System-on-Chip design. In this paper some guidelines are provided for the integration of the information on power consumption in the executable(More)
The ability of a neural network to learn from experience can be viewed as closely related to its approximating properties. By assuming that environment is essentially stochastic it follows that neural networks should be able to approximate stochastic processes. The aim of this paper is to show that some classes of artificial neural networks exist such that(More)
A rigorous formulation of the parametric yield for very large scale integration (VLSI) designs including the mismatch effect is proposed. The theory has been carried out starting from a general statistical model relating random variations of device parameters to the stochastic behavior of process parameters. The model predicts a dependence of correlation,(More)
One of the major problems with electric vehicles is the battery. The battery must be adequately monitored in order to optimize its performances and to maximize its life, to know when it's time to recharge it, or when the charging has been completed, or it's time to buy a new one. The battery's monitoring is the goal of the battery management system (BMS),(More)
This paper presents a methodology, based on the regularization theory, to find, in the whole geometric parameter space, the planar spiral inductors with optimum quality factor. A new technique, based on Debye fitting approximation, has been applied to extract a passive equivalent circuit model of these inductors. This model provides an accurate wideband(More)
The estimation of diagonal elements of a Wiener model kernel is a well known practical and theoretical problem. The new operators and notations here proposed aim at the automatic code generation for the implementation of efficient and accurate nonparametric algorithms for the identification of diagonal points. The resulting formulas here presented allow the(More)
Sport, fitness, as well as rehabilitation activities, often require the accomplishment of repetitive movements. The correctness of the exercises is often related to the capability of maintaining the required cadence and muscular force. Failure to maintain the required force, also known as muscle fatigue, is accompanied by a shift in the spectral content of(More)
