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 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 Digital Logic Gate Using Quantum-Dot Cellular Automata

Scientists at the University of Notre Dame's Department of Electrical Engineering have developed "computer circuits that can be built to work without electricity -- a tiny initial charge is all that is needed." However, a major obstacle that needs to be overcome before the circuits can be useful is that they seem to work at temperatures just above absolute zero. This breakthrough was published in...
