The Importance of servo motor sizing should not be underestimated. Proper motor sizing will not only result in significant cost savings by saving energy, reducing purchasing and operating costs,... More > reducing downtime, etc.; it also helps the engineer to design better motion control systems. However, the knowledge of mechanical systems and their influence on motor speed, inertia and torque requirements seems to decline in a world where modern technology aspects, such as tuning and programming, seem to be the main focus. The motor sizing process involves a number of mathematical equations, which are most certainly documented, but not necessarily with the motor sizing process in mind. This book focuses primarily on servo motor sizing and it documents in detail the inertia and torque calculations of standard mechanical components and the motor selection process.< Less

The Accellera Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) standard is architected to scale, but verification is growing and in more than just the digital design dimension. It is growing in the SoC... More > dimension to include low-power and mixed-signal and the system integration dimension to include multi-language support and acceleration. These items and others all contribute to the quality of the SOC so the Metric-Driven Verification (MDV) methodology is needed to unify it all into a coherent verification plan. This book is for verification engineers and managers familiar with the UVM and the benefits it brings to digital verification but who also need to tackle specialized tasks. It is also written for the SoC project manager that is tasked with building an efficient worldwide team. While the task continues to become more complex, Advanced Verification Topics describes methodologies outside of the Accellera UVM standard, but that build on it, to provide a way for SoC teams to stay productive and profitable.< Less

Signals convey information. Systems transform signals. This book introduces the mathematical models used to design and understand both. It is intended for students interested in developing a deep... More > understanding of how to digitally create and manipulate signals to measure and control the physical world and to enhance human experience and communication.
This book provides an accessible introduction to signals and systems for electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science students, and is based on several years of successful classroom use at the University of California, Berkeley. The material starts with an early introduction to applications, well before students have built up enough theory to fully analyze the applications. This motivates students to learn the theory and allows students to master signals and systems at the sophomore level. The material motivates signals and systems through sound and images, as opposed to circuits, and as such, calculus is the only prerequisite.< Less

More > portable microelectronics. The material starts with a top-down design perspective, much like in an industry setting, and discusses the system “from the ground up” (from basic analog IC concepts, biasing techniques, and voltage references to low-dropout regulators and switched-inductor converters) with an educational mindset, rigorously surveying, analyzing, and evaluating basic concepts and the state of the art. The driving objective of the book is to enable the reader to model, analyze, and design power-conditioning ICs using bipolar, BiCMOS, and CMOS technologies. The material places emphasis on basic understanding and critical thinking, that is, intuitive grasp of concepts, which is the foundation for innovative IC design.< Less
