Which ADC architecture is right for your application – Part Two

Selecting the proper ADC can appear a formidable task. A direct approach is to go to the selection guides and parametric search engines. Enter the sampling rate, resolution, power supply voltage, and other properties. Click ‘find’. But can one approach the task with greater understanding — particularly of the main architectures — and get better […]

Which ADC architecture is right for your application – Part One

Introduction Selecting the proper ADC can appear a formidable task, considering the thousands on the market. A direct approach is to go to the selection guides and parametric search engines. Enter the sampling rate, resolution, power supply voltage, and other properties. Click ‘find’. And hope for the best. But it’s usually not enough. How does […]

A new canonical form for fast Boolean matching in logic synthesis and verification

An efficient and compact canonical form is proposed for the Boolean matching problem under permutation and complementation of variables. In addition, an efficient algorithm for computing the proposed canonical form is provided. The efficiency of the algorithm allows it to be applicable to large complex Boolean functions with no limitation on the number of input […]

Taking a broad view

The IEEE Council for EDA has opened its website at www.c-eda.org. Earlier this fall, the IEEE Council for Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) took on formal existence with the election of its first officers. Design consultant and one time DAC general chair Alfred Dunlop is its launch president. He sets out why this is a great […]

Improving team productivity with efficient data management for SoC designs

The efficient management and synchronization of design data is now a necessity and no longer something that is a ‘nice-to-have’. Design complexity continues to increase with one result being that development spreads across several groups (often in different places). A project may also have several thousands design files generated by various tools from different vendors […]
