Mit den Fortschritten in der Mikroelektronik wächst auch der Bedarf an VLSI-Realisierungen von digitalen Signalverarbeitungseinheiten. Die zunehmende Komplexität der Signalverarbeitungsverfahren führt insbesondere bei Signalen mit hoher Quellenrate auf Anforderungen, die nur durch spezielle Schaltungsstrukturen erfüllt werden können. Dieses Buch behandelt Schaltungstechniken und Architekturen zur Erzielung hoher Durchsatzraten von Algorithmen der Signalverarbeitung. Neben alternativen Schaltungstechniken zur Realisierung der Basisoperationen, Addition, Multiplikation und Division werden CORDIC-Architekturen zur Implementierung transzendenter Funktionen vorgestellt. Zur Konzeption von Systemen mit Parallelverarbeitung und Pipelining wird ein allgemeines Verfahren zur Abbildung von Signalverarbeitungsalgorithmen auf anwendungsspezifischen Architekturen erläutert. Hierzu werden beispielhaft spezielle Architekturen für Filter, Matrixoperationen und die diskrete Fouriertransformation erörtert. Architekturen programmierbarer digitaler Signalprozessoren sowie beispielhafte zugehörige Implementierungen sind eingeschlossen.

Ausgehend von den theoretischen Grundlagen fur den Begriff des Infotainments wird der analysierte Beitrag innerhalb der RTL-Nachrichtenstruktur eingeordnet. Als verstandnissichernde Vorarbeit wird zusatzlich die Struktur von Punkt 12 vorgestellt. Fur die Analyse des Beitrages selbst stehen zwei Punkte im Zentrum: Einerseits wird gezeigt, wie Dramatisierungseffekte dem Beitrag zu einem Mehr verhelfen (sollen), wo augenscheinlich ein Weniger dominiert. Andererseits wird unter Zuhilfenahme entsprechender Forschungsliteratur gezeigt, wie die einzelnen Konstituenten eines audiovisuellen Beitrages aufeinander Bezug nehmen, verweisen und sich bedingen und im Sinne Jagers (2002 und 2004) uberschreiben," sich gegenseitig lesbar machen.

Eines der Hauptprobleme beim Chipentwurf besteht darin, daß die Anzahl der zu bewältigenden Kombinationen der einzelnen Chipbausteine ins Unermeßliche steigt. Hier hat sich eine sehr fruchtbare Verbindung zu einem Kerngebiet der Theoretischen Informatik, dem Gebiet des Entwurfs von Datenstrukturen und effizienten Algorithmen, herstellen lassen: das Konzept der geordneten binären Entscheidungsgraphen, das in zahlreichen CAD-Projekten zu einer beträchtlichen Leistungssteigerung geführt hat. Die Autoren stellen die Grundlagen dieses interdisziplinären Forschungsgebiets dar und behandeln wichtige Anwendungen aus dem rechnergestützten Schaltkreisentwurf.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Film und Fernsehen, Note: 2,0, Universität Siegen (Fachbereich Medienwissenschaften), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Die Information – Das täglich Neue“ 1952 (an Weihnachten) begann mit der „Tagesschau“ das Zeitalter der Fernsehnachrichtensendungen. Mit der Einführung des Zweiten Deutschen Fernsehens (April 1963), und damit verbunden einer zweiten Nachrichtensendung, glaubte man zunächst eine Programmschwämme würde den Zuschauer überfluten. In der heutigen Zeit besitzt jeder größere TV-Anbieter eine Nachrichtensendung. 1998 schalteten an einem Durchschnittstag über 18 Millionen Bundesbürger die Hauptnachrichtensendungen von ARD, ZDF und RTL ein, um sich über die wichtigsten Tagesgeschehnisse zu informieren. Diese Zahl läßt schnell erkennen, das Fernsehnachrichten mittlerweile einen hohen Stellenwert in der Gesellschaft besitzen. Daher ist es wichtig Nachrichtensendungen von Zeit zu Zeit immer wieder zu analysieren und zu beobachten, um eventuelle Veränderungen zu erkennen und deren Gründe zu finden. Die vorliegende Hausarbeit soll zeigen wie unterschiedlich Nachrichten ausgewählt, gewichtet und präsentiert werden und welche Gründe es dafür geben könnte. Diese Aspekte sollen die unterschiedlichen Tendenzen in der Nachrichtenerstattung deutlich machen. Verglichen werden dazu die „Tagesschau“ (20:00 - 20:15 Uhr) , die Hauptnachrichtensendung der ARD, und die „RTL II News“ (20:00 – 20:15 Uhr) von RTL II vom 14.01.2001. Bei der Materialrecherche wurde deutlich, daß die älteste Nachrichtensendung des deutschsprachigen Fernsehens in der Vergangenheit oft Grundlage von Analysen des Fernsehnachrichtenangebotes war. Die „RTL II News“ hingegen, die erst seit acht Jahren ausgestrahlt werden, wurden nicht analysiert.

The first of two volumes in the Electronic Design Automation for Integrated Circuits Handbook, Second Edition, Electronic Design Automation for IC System Design, Verification, and Testing thoroughly examines system-level design, microarchitectural design, logic verification, and testing. Chapters contributed by leading experts authoritatively discuss processor modeling and design tools, using performance metrics to select microprocessor cores for integrated circuit (IC) designs, design and verification languages, digital simulation, hardware acceleration and emulation, and much more. New to This Edition: Major updates appearing in the initial phases of the design flow, where the level of abstraction keeps rising to support more functionality with lower non-recurring engineering (NRE) costs Significant revisions reflected in the final phases of the design flow, where the complexity due to smaller and smaller geometries is compounded by the slow progress of shorter wavelength lithography New coverage of cutting-edge applications and approaches realized in the decade since publication of the previous edition—these are illustrated by new chapters on high-level synthesis, system-on-chip (SoC) block-based design, and back-annotating system-level models Offering improved depth and modernity, Electronic Design Automation for IC System Design, Verification, and Testing provides a valuable, state-of-the-art reference for electronic design automation (EDA) students, researchers, and professionals.
