Digital Design and Modeling with VHDL and Synthesis

Electronic platforms layout with VHDL and Synthesis provides an built-in method of electronic layout rules, strategies, and implementations to aid the reader layout even more complicated platforms inside a shorter layout cycle. this is often finished by way of introducing electronic layout recommendations, VHDL coding, VHDL simulation, synthesis instructions, and techniques jointly.

Low-Power High-Resolution Analog to Digital Converters: Design, Test and Calibration

With the short development of CMOS fabrication know-how, a growing number of signal-processing capabilities are applied within the electronic area for a cheaper price, reduce strength intake, greater yield, and better re-configurability. This has lately generated a superb call for for low-power, low-voltage A/D converters that may be discovered in a mainstream deep-submicron CMOS know-how.

CAD Tools and Algorithms for Product Design

Structures to aid the constantly shrinking product improvement cycles and the expanding caliber specifications desire major improvements and new techniques. during this e-book very important new instruments and algorithms for destiny product modeling platforms are awarded. it's in accordance with a seminar on the foreign convention and examine heart for desktop technological know-how, Schloß Dagstuhl, Germany, awarded by means of across the world well-known specialists in CAD know-how.

Example text

73 Next, move the cursor directly above the temporary tracking point, as shown in the following image on the left. The tooltip should read 90°. Entering a value of 2 units identifies the center of the circle. The completed construction operation is illustrated in the following image on the right. 74 ALTERNATE METHODS USED FOR PRECISION DRAWING: CARTESIAN COORDINATES Before drawing precision geometry such as lines and circles, it is essential to have an understanding of coordinate systems. The Cartesian or rectangular coordinate system is a system constructed of an orthogonal axis intersecting at an origin that creates four quadrants, allowing location of any point by specifying the coordinates.

The LINE command is entered and the Endpoint mode activated. When the cursor moves over a valid endpoint, an Object Snap symbol appears along with a tooltip indicating which OSNAP mode is currently being used. Another example of the use of Object Snap is in dimensioning applications where exact endpoints and intersections are needed. Open the drawing file 01_Endpoint. Use the illustration in the following image and the command sequence below to draw a line segment from the endpoint of the arc to the endpoint of the line.

The starting point for the next line segment is considered acquired. TRY IT! Rather than enter the length of this line segment, move your cursor over the top of the corner at “B” to acquire this point (be careful not to pick the point here). Then move your cursor up until the tooltip reads 90° as shown in the following image on the right. 69 Move your cursor up until the tooltip now reads angles of 90° and 180°. Also notice the two tracking paths intersecting at the point of the two acquired points.
