On Enhancing Deterministic Sequential ATPG
(Virginia Tech, 2011-02-01)
This thesis presents four different techniques for improving the average-case performance of deterministic sequential circuit Automatic Test Patterns Generators (ATPG). Three techniques make use of information gathered ...
Analysis of a self-contained motion capture garment for e-textiles
(Virginia Tech, 2011-05-04)
Wearable computers and e-textiles are becoming increasingly widespread in todayâ s society. Motion capture is one of the many potential applications for on-body electronic systems. Previous work has been performed at ...
Study of Physical Unclonable Functions at Low Voltage on FPGA
(Virginia Tech, 2011-07-22)
Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs) provide a secure, power efficient and non-volatile means of chip identification. These are analogous to one-way functions that are easy to create but impossible to duplicate. They offer ...
Three Dimensional Interferometric Imaging at Terahertz Frequency for Concealed Object Detection
(Virginia Tech, 2011-11-11)
This project was born out of the work performed by a group of researchers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT)    working on interferometric imaging with a spiral array. Their investigation stopped ...
Characterization of FPGA-based High Performance Computers
(Virginia Tech, 2011-08-09)
As CPU clock frequencies plateau and the doubling of CPU cores per processor exacerbate the memory wall, hybrid core computing, utilizing CPUs augmented with FPGAs and/or GPUs holds the promise of addressing high-performance ...
Analysis of the Impact of Solar Thermal Water Heaters on the Electrical Distribution Load
(Virginia Tech, 2011-09-23)
In this research, the impact of solar thermal water heaters on the electric water heating load curve in a residential distribution circuit is analyzed with realistic hot water draw profiles. For this purpose, the electric ...
