The paper considers the advantages and possibilities of application of fiber-optical sensors. The description and the prospects of the developed measuring system designed to work with fiber-optical sensors.
Hardware-software subsystem designed for MOSFETs characteristic measurement and SPICE model parameter extraction taking into account radiation effects is presented. Parts of the system are described. The macromodel approach is used to account for radiation effects in MOSFET modeling. Particularities of the account for radiation effects in MOSFETs within the measurement and model parameter extraction procedures are emphasized. Application of the subsystem is illustrated on the example of radiation hardened 0.25 μm SOI MOSFET test structures.
The article gives a brief description of NoC simulator NoCTweak, based on SystemC. Mesh NoC simulation shows that the central location of "hot spots" allows up to 9% reduction in the delay of packets, up to 15.2% – in energy consumption for each packet transmission and up to 19.5% increase of the network capacity.
The different approaches to the optimization of network communications subsystem on a chip are considered. The mesh and pseudo-optimal topologies with 8 and 9 nodes using System Verilog library Netmaker are modelled. It is shown, that mesh topologies of rectangular form are less efficient, than square ones; pseudo-optimal topologies have a higher threshold of saturation compared to the mesh and they have no restrictions on the number of nodes. Figs: 3. Ref.: 8 titles.
The analysis of quasi-optimal and regular topologies of networks-on-chip by their synthesis and HDL-simulation is performed. The simulation results and resource costs comparison show the effectiveness of quasi-optimal topologies in the design of networks with the number of nodes and connecting lines which cannot be achieved when using typical regular topologies.
