The Core Concepts of Model-Based Design

Model-Based Design is founded on eight core concepts: • Executable specification A model that encapsulates design requirements at a specific level of detail.   • System-level simulation The practice of simulating a model of the system to investigate system...

MATLAB TIPS AND TRICKS

Version Issues One of the key issues to be mindful of is that there are two new versions of MATLAB every year, one in the spring of that year (e.g., 2016a) and one in the fall (e.g., 2016b). Whereas changes in each release are incremental, over time, these changes do...

Kalman Filter

Kalman Filter A Kalman filter is an optimal recursive data processing algorithm. One of the aspect of this optimality is that the Kalman filter incorporates all the information that can be provided to it. It processes all available measurements, regardless of their...

Wavelet Transformation

Wavelet Transformation The wavelet transformation (WT) is a method of signal representation that enables simultaneous analysis in the time and frequency domains and aids the analysis of nonstationary signals such as spike trains by inducing sparsity. The wavelet...

Variability Modeling and Management In Mobile Devices

Variability Modeling and Management In Mobile Devices The problems of power consumption, temperature stress and reliability degradation will only worsen with CMOS scaling and the consequent increase in variability. Variability in integrated circuits refers to the...

Making Sustainable Fiber Optic

introduction The planning, development and implementation of a sprawling urban city is no easy task. For a moment, consider the modern metropolitan city perhaps in which you may currently reside; at some point, a city planner considered the effects of each additional...

Xillybus IP core Implementation

The Xillybus IP core was implemented on a Virtex-5 FPGA on a Xilinx xupv5lx110t board. The core ports were connected to ChipScope integrated logic analyzer for on-chip testing. Before integrating the Xillybus IP core into the spike-based data reduction platform, its...

Random Forest

Random Forest Random Forest is a schema for building a classification ensemble with a set of decision trees that grow in the different bootstrapped aggregation of the training set on the basis of CART (Classification and Regression Tree) and the Bagging...

Basics of screws

Basics of screws The screw, a simple machine, is an inclined plane wrapped around a cylinder, used either as a fastener or as a force and motion modifier. Screws take many forms; the most common form consists of a cylindrical shaft with helical grooves or ridges...

Stroke

Stroke Stroke provides an excellent model for the study of , in part due to its prevalence. Strokes are unfortunately quite common: 1 in 6 men and 1 in 5 women worldwide will suer a  stroke, and it can aect people of any age: around 27 per 100,000 perinatal (< 30...

Principles of oximetry

Cellular respiration and oxygen transport in the body A basic understanding of cellular respiration is crucial to this work; to wit, a brief overview will be provided. There are two types of cellular respiration in the body:  aerobic and anaerobic respiration. Aerobic...

Greedy Algorithms

Greedy algorithms estimate the support and coefficients of the signal in an iterative approach. At each iteration the estimate of the signal is improved by updating its support. Two well know Greedy algorithms are Matching Persuit (MP)  based methods and Iterative...

C++ Boost implementation

In order to generate uniform distributed sample on the fly, the C++ Boost library was applied with its powerful statistical distribution templates. For generating a uni form distributed sample, the Mersenne Twister generator was implemented used. The Mersenne Twister...

Tweet Information

The number of tweets collected for participating users varies widely, as shown in Figure. As discussed in subsection only about the most recent 3200 tweets can be collected from a user.The average of 1538 tweets collected per user and median of 1065 suggest that for...

Capillary phantom construction

Capillary phantom construction To test whether separate strands of fibers within a large parallel bundle can be distinguished from each other, a capillary fiber phantom was created using flexible fusedsilica capillary tubing manufactured by Polymicro Inc. (Molex,...

Oil/Water Phantom

Oil/Water Phantom To demonstrate the fat suppression capabilities of the eZOOM sequence a water/oil phantom was used. A 50ml container (HDPE plastic) was filled with approximately 65% tap water and 30% canola oil (leaving about 5% air space) and placed upright into...

Review of Literature about Recording Channels

Monitoring the interplay of neuronal ensembles in the brain is important for understanding mechanisms underlying memory, learning and behavior. Recently a group of neuroscientists have proposed launching a large-scale, international public effort called “Brain...

Power Agent Model

Power Agent Model In this post, we talk about Power Agent Model. The nodes in the standard multi-bus systems have been previously represented by the power agents. They are specified as producer and consumer agents . Since the the above focused on the properties of the...

TEG Optimum Output and Power Regulation

TEG Optimum Output and Power Regulation In this post, we talk about TEG Optimum Output and Power Regulation. The electricity values from the commercial TEG are much lower than we expected. The main reason is the small temperature contrast between the hot and cold side...
