Quantum mechanical obstacles to endured scaling are changing into with ease obvious. partly Depleted Silicon-on-Insulator (PD-SOI) know-how is rising as a promising technique of addressing those boundaries. It additionally introduces extra layout complexity which has to be good understood. SOI Circuit layout suggestions first introduces the scholar or practicing engineer to SOI equipment physics and its basic idiosyncrasies. It then walks the reader via realizations of those mechanisms that are saw in universal high-speed microprocessor designs. ideas of thumb and comparisons to traditional bulk CMOS are provided to steer implementation. SOI's final virtue, in spite of the fact that, could lie within the specified circuit topologies it helps; a couple of those novel new ways can be defined. SOI Circuit layout options attracts upon the most recent undefined literature in addition to the firsthand reviews of its authors. it truly is a great advent to the thoughts of governing SOI use and presents an organization origin for extra research of this interesting new know-how paradigm.

Download Embedded systems and software validation by Abhik Roychoudhury M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from PDF

By Abhik Roychoudhury M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the State University of New York at Stony Brook

Modern embedded platforms require excessive functionality, most economical and coffee energy intake. Such structures in general encompass a heterogeneous choice of processors, really expert reminiscence subsystems, and in part programmable or fixed-function elements. This heterogeneity, coupled with matters reminiscent of hardware/software partitioning, mapping, scheduling, etc., results in a number of layout chances, making functionality debugging and validation of such platforms a tough problem.

Embedded platforms are used to manage security severe purposes similar to flight keep an eye on, car electronics and healthcare tracking. truly, constructing trustworthy software/systems for such purposes is of extreme value. This ebook describes a bunch of debugging and verification tools that can support to accomplish this goal.

  •  Covers the key abstraction degrees of embedded platforms layout, ranging from software program research and micro-architectural modeling, to modeling of source sharing and communique on the approach level;
  • Integrates formal recommendations of validation for hardware/software with debugging and validation of embedded approach layout flows;
  • Includes sensible case stories to respond to the questions: does a layout meet its requisites, if now not, then which elements of the approach are answerable for the violation, and after they are pointed out, then how may still the layout be definitely changed?

Download Embedded SoPC Design with Nios II Processor and VHDL by Pong P. Chu PDF

By Pong P. Chu

The booklet is split into 4 significant components. half I covers HDL constructs and synthesis of simple electronic circuits. half II offers an outline of embedded software program improvement with the emphasis on low-level I/O entry and drivers. half III demonstrates the layout and improvement of and software program for numerous advanced I/O peripherals, together with PS2 keyboard and mouse, a image video controller, an audio codec, and an SD (secure electronic) card. half IV offers 3 case reviews of the mixing of accelerators, together with a customized GCD (greatest universal divisor) circuit, a Mandelbrot set fractal circuit, and an audio synthesizer in accordance with DDFS (direct electronic frequency synthesis) methodology.

The publication makes use of FPGA units, Nios II soft-core processor, and improvement platform from Altera Co., that is one of many major FPGA manufactures. Altera has a beneficiant college application that offers unfastened software program and discounted prototyping forums for tutorial associations (details at http://www.altera.com/university). the 2 major academic prototyping forums are often called DE1 ($99) and DE2 ($269). All experiments could be carried out and established with those forums. A board mixed with this booklet turns into a “turn-key” answer for the SoPC layout experiments and tasks. so much HDL and C codes within the e-book are gadget self reliant and will be tailored via different prototyping forums so long as a board has comparable I/O configuration.

Download Epistemic Logic for AI and Computer Science by J.-J. Ch. Meyer, W. van der Hoek PDF

By J.-J. Ch. Meyer, W. van der Hoek

Epistemic good judgment has grown from its philosophical beginnings to discover various purposes in desktop technology as a method of reasoning in regards to the wisdom and trust of brokers. This ebook, in response to classes taught at universities and summer time faculties, presents a extensive creation to the topic; many routines are integrated including their strategies. The authors start by means of proposing the required equipment from arithmetic and common sense, together with Kripke semantics and the well known modal logics okay, T, S4 and S5. Then they flip to functions within the contexts of dispensed platforms and synthetic intelligence: subject matters which are addressed contain the notions of universal wisdom, disbursed wisdom, specific and implicit trust, the interplays among wisdom and time, and information and motion, in addition to a graded (or numerical) variation of the epistemic operators. the matter of logical omniscience is additionally mentioned widely. Halpern and Moses' idea of sincere formulae is roofed, and a digression is made into the world of non-monotonic reasoning and preferential entailment. Moore's autoepistemic common sense is mentioned, including Levesque's similar common sense of 'all I know'. additionally, it's proven how you can base default and counterfactual reasoning on epistemic good judgment.

Contents:

1. Parametric Timed Automata.
2. The Inverse approach for Parametric Timed Automata.
3. The Inverse approach in perform: software to Case Studies.
4. Behavioral Cartography of Timed Automata.
5. Parameter Synthesis for Hybrid Automata.
6. program to the Robustness research of Scheduling Problems.
7. end and Perspectives.
