Programming DSPs in High-Level Languages
Design How-To  
11/5/2002   Post a comment
To make DSP software maintainable, reusable, and portable, you have to write the code in a high-level language, usual in C or a language based on C. This article from Associated Compiler Experts (ACE) suggests that the solution is to use one of several variants of the C language, along with advanced simulation tools and compilers.
A Beam Deflecting System For Holographic Storage Fast Data Reading
Design How-To  
11/5/2002   Post a comment
In this article, Renaud Kiefer and associates describe a compact addressing system for memory reading which combines micro-mirrors (or optical MEMS: microelectromechanical systems), acousto-optics, and gratings. MEMS are more convenient for this application than scanners such as galvanometric, oscillatory, or polygon mirrors due to the large mechanical deflection angles and high level of integration achievable with MEMS devices.
