Tuning of continuous-time filters using genetic algorithms
A tuning method of continuous-time filters is proposed which is based on genetic algorithms. Simulation results show that the method can be used to tune OTA-C filters for a given accuracy within a reasonable time.
High-frequency two-input CMOS OTA for continuous-time filter applications
A high-frequency fully differential CMOS operational transconductance amplifier (OTA) is presented for continuous-time filter applications in the megahertz range. The proposed design technique combines a linear cross-coupled ...
Laboratory calibration of open channel bed resistance
This paper deals with the calibration of bed resistance to flow in a straight open channel contained within a laboratory flume. The longitudinal slope of the flume was able to be varied, and so the flow could be subcritical ...
Systematic assessment and validation of compliance-based crack closure measurements in fatigue
Different methods of closure measurement and issues related to the identification of closure points are examined. Based on compliance curves obtained from crack mouth clip gauges and near-tip strain gauges, a systematic ...
Systems integration in maintenance engineering
Integration in maintenance engineering systems provides a potential solution to some complex and conflicting problems. Decision making is often achieved with uncertainty and unknowns, while measuring against conflicting ...
Fault diagnosis of analog circuits with tolerances using artificial neural networks
This paper proposes a method for analog fault diagnosis using neural networks. The primary focus of the paper is to provide robust diagnosis using a mechanism to deal with the problem of component tolerances and reduce ...
New wavelength assignment schemes for wavelength division multiplexed passive optical networks
The passive optical network has been shown to be a cost effective method of introducing fibre to the access network. However, the expected increase in demand for broadband services will inevitably mean that upgrades in ...
