A Design Environment for High-Throughput Low-Power Dedicated Signal Processing Systems

This paper, published in the March 2002 edition of the IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits, looks at "a hierarchical automated design flow for low-energy direct-mapped signal processing integrated circuits." The author argues that directly implementing signal processing algorithms in hardware uses far less computational energy than software implementations, while still keeping chip area small....
The Hobby of Electronic Circuit Engineering

This website (originally created in Japanese and translated into English using translation software) by a Japanese systems engineer, Seiichi Inoue, provides an extensive overview of electronic circuit engineering. Topics covered include: Basic knowledge of Electronic parts, Basic knowledge of Engineering Instruments, an Introduction of Engineering Method, and the Assembly Process. A variety of...
Wiring up Single Molecules

In recent years, circuit design has advanced to achieve extremely small feature sizes -- literally tens of millions of transistors can be integrated in a single chip. This progress has given rise to molecular electronics, the notion of creating electronic devices with single molecules as circuit elements. In this paper, the authors "discuss transistors, where electrons flow through discrete...
