View Resource A Design Environment for High-Throughput Low-Power Dedicated Signal Processing Systems

This paper, published in the March 2002 edition of the IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits, looks at "a hierarchical automated design flow for low-energy direct-mapped signal processing integrated circuits." The author argues that directly implementing signal processing algorithms in hardware uses far less computational energy than software implementations, while still keeping chip area small....
View Resource ESSCIRC 2002

The 2002 European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC) was held toward the end of September, and nearly 200 papers presented at the conference are provided at this Web site. Professionals from all over the world, representing industry and academia, contributed their research and ideas. Most, if not all, of the papers are in English, with topics ranging from analog and digital circuits to...
View Resource HyperTransport Technology: Simplifying System Design

HyperTransport technology is an architecture that allows data transfer between chips in excess of ten gigabytes per second. This white paper from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), released in October 2002, considers the potential of HyperTransport in designing an input/ output bus for a microprocessor. The technology, while accommodating high speed demands, requires relatively little power, making it...
View Resource Hot Chips: A Symposium on High Performance Chips

The Hot Chips conference was held in August 2002, and the presentations from the event were recently released online. The symposium was centered on high performance processors and the technologies used to design them. Many presentations are from key industry representatives who described cutting-edge microarchitectures and implementations such as the Itanium 2, GeForce4, and more. Others are from...
View Resource ASIC Design for Signal Processing

The material on this site was motivated by the author's recent technical work with Bell Labs Research. It serves as an introduction to digital design of certain types of application specific integrated circuits (ASICs). Although the details of the research project cannot be fully revealed, the basic principles of the technology are explained. This information can be used to implement "a matrix...
View Resource Nobel Laureate e-Museum: Integrated Circuits

Nobel Laureate e-Museum's Educational section provides historical and scientific background information on inventions by those who have been honored with the Nobel Laureates in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature and peace over the years. For example, from this website, visitors can read about Nobel Laureate Jack Kilby and his part in the invention of integrated circuits, which are found in a...
