A cutting-edge guide to the theory and practice of high-speed digital system design<br> <br> An understanding of high-speed interconnect phenomena is essential for digital designers who must deal with the challenges posed by the ever-increasing operating speeds of today's microprocessors. This book provides a much-needed, practical guide to the state of the art of modern digital system design, combining easily accessible explanations with immensely useful problem-solving strategies. Written by three leading Intel engineers, High-Speed Digital System Design clarifies difficult and often neglected topics involving the effects of high frequencies on digital buses and presents a variety of proven techniques and application examples. Extensive appendices, formulas, modeling techniques as well as hundreds of figures are also provided.<br> Coverage includes:<br> * A thorough introduction to the digital aspects of basic transmission line theory<br> * Crosstalk and nonideal transmission line effects on signal quality and timings<br> * The impact of packages, vias, and connectors on signal integrity<br> * The effects of nonideal return current paths, high frequency power delivery, and simultaneous switching noise<br> * Explanations of how driving circuit characteristics affect the quality of the digital signal<br> * Digital timing analysis at the system level that incorporates high-speed signaling effects into timing budgets<br> * Methodologies for designing high-speed buses and handling the very large number of variables that affect interconnect performance<br> * Radiated emission problems and how to minimize system noise<br> * The practical aspects of making measurements in high-speed digital systems
Structured Controllers for Uncertain Systems focuses on the development of easy-to-use design strategies for robust low-order or fixed-structure controllers (particularly the industrially ubiquitous PID controller). These strategies are based on a recently-developed stochastic optimization method termed the "Heuristic Kalman Algorithm" (HKA) the use of which results in a simplified methodology that enables the solution of the structured control problem without a profusion of user-defined parameters. An overview of the main stochastic methods employable in the context of continuous non-convex optimization problems is also provided and various optimization criteria for the design of a structured controller are considered; H , H2, and mixed H2/H each merits a chapter to itself. Time-domain-performance specifications can be easily incorporated in the design.
