Body-bootstrapped-buffer circuit for CMOS static power reduction
In this paper, we present a new CMOS circuit design for increasing the threshold voltages (VT) of MOSFETS to reduce power consumption. Using a single voltage source VDD, the proposed circuit generates both the high positive ...
THD of closed-loop analog PWM class-D amplifiers
This paper presents an analytical modeling of the mechanisms of total harmonic distortion (THD) of second-order based single-feedback and double-feedback Class-D amplifiers (CDAs). We show that the overall THD in these ...
Reflections on aspects of music interactivity in performance situations
Music interactivity is a sub-field of human-computer interaction studies. Interactive situations have different degree of structural openness and musical “ludicity” or playfulness. Discussing music seems inherently impossible ...
Taiwan : after the KMT landslide
The landslide victory by Taiwan's opposition party, KMT, in the January 12 parliamentary election is likely to mend the domestic ethnic split and improve Taiwan-China relations. This will bring peace and stability to the ...
Self-radicalisation and national security : new threat, new response
The recent arrest of three self-radicalised Singaporeans has raised the question whether there is a need for the public to be further incorporated into the national security framework. This commentary argues for such a move.
Southern Philippines : the way forward for stalled peace
The road to peace in Southern Philippines is when the four gatekeepers of peace - the MILF, the MNLF, the traditional leaders, and the leaders of the affected Christian provinces - work out a political settlement acceptable ...
Russian arms sales : the other story behind Somalia's piracy
The piracy problem in Somali waters highlights the challenges and dilemmas facing Russia's arms exporters despite phenomenal sales growth since 2000. A combination of gactors, including fierce competition in the global ...
Malaysian politics : where to after the electoral shock?
The outcome of the 8 March general election in Malaysia has been tectonic. The deep inroads made by the opposition at the expnese of the formidable Barisan Nasional coalition have taken many by surprise. The post-election ...
Demonstration of Schottky barrier NMOS transistors with erbium silicided source/drain and silicon nanowire channel
We have fabricated silicon nanowire N-MOSFETs using erbium disilicide (ErSi2−x) in a Schottky source/drain back-gated architecture. Although the subthreshold swing (~180 mV/dec) and drain-induced barrier lowering ...
Sub-mW multi-GHz CMOS dual-modulus prescalers based on programmable injection-locked frequency dividers
Dual-modulus prescalers based on programmable Injection-Locked Frequency Dividers (ILFDs) are ...
