Northrop Grumman Corp. (Knoxville, Tenn.) has put a new spin on automotive vision technology with color systems that use the roadway rather than the vehicle to examine the underside of a vehicle. From that novel vantage point, the systems can use a camera to read a vehicle's license plates. Chuck Murray has this report.
Soft errors become hard truth for logic
News & Analysis  
5/4/2004   Post a comment
Those nasty neutrons that have plagued memory chip designers for the past two decades are now giving logic designers a headache, too. But while error correction coding has reduced soft-error rates (SERs) in DRAMs and SRAMs, no such quick fix exists for logic, and all current solutions involve extra cost and a drag on performance. EE Times' semiconductor editors are on the case.

The digitization of analog and RF circuits
Product News  
5/3/2004   Post a comment
When discussing the integration of analog and RF into digital system-on-chips, it is usually analog that emerges as the most important. However, changes in digital processing are shifting that focus. During the past several years, designers have been working to design simpler analog and RF systems by transferring resources and operations to the digital domain, particularly in the case of wireless basestation design.
