Server scalability is more important than ever in today's client/server dominated network environments. Recently, researchers have begun to consider cluster-based computers using commodity hardware as an alternative to expensive specialized hardware for building scalable Web servers. In this paper, we present performance results comparing two cluster-based(More)

Variable-reluctance devices sense variations in flux linkage while semiconductors read variations in local flux density. The authors show how recognizing this fundamental difference leads to markedly different sensor design approaches, and propose new configurations with improved performance. The analysis of the sensors is based on a general theory(More)
Position sensors based on the detection of magnetic flux densities by Hall sensors or magnetoresistors are used in automotive applications for crankshaft and camshaft position sensing, which is needed for engine control. The paper identifies the limitations of traditional designs, which introduce an angular error between the position signal pulse and the(More)

An air-flow meter, developed primarily for the measurement of air intake into an internal combustion engine, is described. The well-known process of corona ion deflection in a gas flow together with proper electrode geometry and a detection scheme provides the conceptual basis for a humidity-insensitive ionic air-flow sensor. Output characteristics of the(More)
