Evaluation of the wafer-level voltage ramp test for oxide integrity by Steven Drager( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report has two objectives. First, it provides both an overview and a critique of the Joint Electronic Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) 14.2 Committee on Wafer Level Reliability standard, JESD-35, 'Procedure for the Wafer-Level Testing of Thin Dielectrics'. This procedure was developed to provide test data which are independent of the test equipment and the facility. This standard test methodology provides the integrated circuit user with a means of comparing the oxide quality between vendors. Second, this report provides an evaluation of the oxide quality of two DoD manufacturers. The test data shows that approximately ninety percent of the sampled oxides failed due to intrinsic breakdown, which indicates a high quality oxide. However, ten percent of the tested oxides exhibited early breakdown, which causes concern that the integrated circuits might fail during their expected lifetime
SPRUCE: Systems and Software Producibility Collaboration and Experimentation Environment( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Systems and Software Producibility Collaboration and Experimentation Environment (SPRUCE1) is an open web portal to bring together DoD software developers, users, and software engineering researchers virtually by enabling their collaboration on specifying and solving software producibility challenge problems. SPRUCE is based on the premise that well articulated and technology users and technology providers. Key SPRUCE features are: self-organizing communities of interest (CoI), dynamically evolving challenge problems with accompanying artifacts, and built-in experimentation facilities to reproduce the problems and evaluate solution benchmarks
WAVES-VHDL integration for common applications( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report provides an explanation of how to use the IEEE Waveform and Vector Exchange Specification (WAVES) language, an industry standard for representing digital stimulus and response data for both the design and test communities, in conjunction with the VHSIC Hardware Description Language. The common complaint heard through the user community has been the complexity and difficulty in using WAVES to verify a VHDL model. This work has addressed this complaint by creating four common library packages WAVES-1164 Pin -Codes, WAVES-1164-Logic-Value, WAVES-1164-Frames and WAVES-1164 Utilities as well as an automatic testbench generation tool to support the WAVES-VHDL testbench configuration and mitigate the complexity for the average user. The report first provides a discussion on each of these packages, so that the user may understand how the packages may be utilized. Then design examples are provided to demonstrate the usage and utility of the libraries as well as to walk the user through the usage of the testbench generation tool
A Cyber Physical Systems Perspective on the Real-time and Reliable Dissemination of Information in Intelligent Transportation Systems( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Timely and reliable dissemination of traffic-related information to drivers is a key property that intelligent transportation systems (ITS) should support. Numerous impediments stemming due to (a) physical factors, such as mobility and speed of vehicles, density of vehicles, characteristics of the wireless radio channel, and power and bit rate of radio transceivers, and (b) cyber issues, such as MAC layer access point associations and address resolutions (ARP), network layer addressing, routing and handoffs, and transport layer retransmissions lead to unpredictability in the timely and reliable dissemination of information to drivers. This paper presents compelling arguments in favor of new research directions in this area that are based on a cyber-physical systems (CPS) perspective. In particular, this paper makes three contributions. First, it considers a vehicle-centric perspective to survey and study the physics-and cyber-imposed impediments to the timely and reliable dissemination of information. Second, it presents a promising CPS solution to overcome a subset of the impediments discovered. Third, it outlines lessons learned indicating the need for more focused research and realistic testbeds. The evaluations presented in the paper are based on simulations conducted in the OMNeT++/INETMANET simulator framework for IEEE 802.11 networks. Lack of open ITS testbeds motivated us to choose simulation as an alternative to conduct our study
