  • A New MIMO Detector Architecture Based on A Forward-Backward Trellis Algorithm 

    Sun, Yang; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2008-10-01)
    In this paper, a recursive Forward-Backward (F-B) trellis algorithm is proposed for soft-output MIMO detection. Instead of using the traditional tree topology, we represent the search space of the MIMO signals with a fully ...
  • New multivariate dependence measures and applications to neural ensembles 

    Goodman, Ilan; Johnson, Don (2003-09-20)
    We develop two new multivariate statistical dependence measures. The first, based on the Kullback-Leibler distance, results in a single value that indicates the general level of dependence among the random variables. The ...

    One of the most promising lithographic technique for the future designs of DRAMs is the phase-shifting mask technique. Conventional phase shifting-masks, however, are difficult to fabricate as they require regions of ...
  • A New Phase Shifting Technique for Deep UV Excimer Laser Based Lithography 

    Bor, Zsolt; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Erdelyi, Miklos; Kido, Motoi; Sengupta, Chaitali; Smayling, Michael; Szabo, Gabor; Tittel, Frank; Wilson, William (1995-02-01)
    This paper reports simulation and experimental details of a novel phase shifting technique based o laser interferometry. Phase shifting is one of the most promising techniques for the fabrication of high density DRAM's. ...
  • New Real-Time Robot Motion Algorithms Using Parallel VLSI Architectures 

    Deo, Arati S.; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Walker, Ian D. (1991-03-01)
    Real time robot control presents a major numerical challenge. The inverse kinematics problem of determining joint motion for a specified end effector trajectory is formulated as a damped least-squares problem which balances ...
  • New Signal-Space Orthonormal Bases via the Metaplectic Transform 

    Baraniuk, Richard G.; Jones, Douglas L. (1992-10-01)
    The discretization of the metaplectic transform (MT) is considered, and it is shown that it can lead to completely new orthonormal bases (ONBs) for the signal space of square integrable functions. Two new classes of bases, ...

    Rajan, Dinesh; Erkip, Elza; Aazhang, Behnaam (1999-12-20)
    We propose a new scheme for multiple antenna transmission in the context of spread spectrum signaling. The new scheme consists of using shifted Gold sequences to modulate independent information on the multiple atennas. ...
  • New techniques for digital filter design 

    Selesnick, Ivan William (1996)
    Several new techniques for open problems in the frequency domain design of FIR and IIR digital filters, both iterative and analytic, are presented. This thesis begins by putting forth the notion that explicitly specified ...
  • Noise Reduction Using an Undecimated Discrete Wavelet Transform 

    Lang, Markus; Guo, Haitao; Odegard, Jan E.; Burrus, C. Sidney; Wells, R.O. (1995-01-15)
    A new nonlinear noise reduction method is presented that uses the discrete wavelet transform. Similar to Donoho and Johnstone, we employ thresholding in the wavelet transform domain but, following a suggestion by Coifman, ...
  • Noise suppression and motion estimation in medical ultrasound imaging 

    Yue, Yong (2007)
    Echocardiographic imaging is a primary modality in the diagnosis of heart disease. Compared to other imaging techniques, such as X-Ray, MRI, and PET, ultrasound imaging owes its great popularity to the fact that it is a ...
