FPGA Synthesis of Custom DSP Blocks Using Distributed Arithmetic Design How-To 6/8/2001 Post a comment Distributed arithmetic, coupled with memory-rich FPGA platforms, provides an efficient means of implementing certain types of DSP functions. Instructors from the niversidad Politcnica de Valencia,Spain, explain how to design FPGA-based parameterized finite-impulse-response (FIR) filters based on this branch of mathematics.
A Quadrature Demodulator Tutorial Design How-To 6/4/2001 Post a comment Quadrature demodulators are important circuits for frequency modulation and certain digital-modulation applications. Motorola's Danielle Coffing and Eric Main offer a quadrature demodulator tutorial, complete with transfer-function derivation and IC implementation.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
