  • Digitally Enhanced Mixed Signal Systems / edited by Chadi Jabbour, Patricia Desgreys and Dominique Dallet

    Digitally enhanced analog and mixed signal techniques are increasingly important to current and future circuit and system design. This book discusses how digital enhancement can be used to address key challenges relevant to analog components in terms of shrinking CMOS technology, increasing user demand for higher flexibility and data traffic in communications networks, and the drive to reduce power consumption.

    The book opens with an introduction to the main trends in current digitally enhanced systems, emphasising the impact of shrinking technology, and provides an overview of the principles of non-linear models. Later chapters cover pre-distortion and post-distortion techniques, analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, clock generation, fixed-point refinement and adaptive filtering. Key themes of the book are the implementation approaches common between digital enhancement techniques and the trade-offs between complexity and performance for digitally enhanced devices and circuits. The book will be of particular interest to academic researchers and engineers working in analog and mixed signal circuit and system design.

  • Industrial power systems with distributed and embedded generation / Radian Belu
    TK 3001 B45 2019eb

    Energy for today's complex electrical power systems is increasingly being generated and distributed locally using small-scale, renewable energy sources. The addition of renewables to the grid requires new tools and operation methods, both for suppliers and industrial consumers. This book describes the supporting technologies that can turn conventional passive electricity delivery networks into the active networks of the future, with a focus on electricity utilization in the industrial environment. It examines the integration of the new, dispersed sources with the legacy systems of centralised generation, as well as how the new technologies can operate effectively in isolated systems. Industrial power distribution, lighting, motor control and protection are discussed in detail.

    The presentation of the details of the enabling technologies makes this book a valuable reference for researchers, students and engineers involved in the planning, design and installation of new systems or the upgrading of existing ones.

  • Modular systems for energy and fuel recovery and conversion / Yatish T. Shah
    TK 1006 S53 2018eb

    Modular Systems for Energy and Fuel Recovery and Conversionsurveys the benefits of the modular approach in the front end of the energy industry. The book also outlines strategies for managing modular approaches for fossil, renewable, and nuclear energy resource recovery and conversion with the help of successful industrial examples. The book points out that while the modular approach is most applicable for distributed and small-scale energy systems, it is also often used for parts of large-scale centralized systems.   

    With the help of successful industrial examples of modular approaches for energy and fuel recovery and conversion, the book points out the need for more balance between large-scale centralized systems and small-scale distributed systems to serve the energy needs of rural and isolated communities. Coal, oil, natural gas, hydrogen, biomass, waste, nuclear, geothermal solar, wind, and hydro energy are examined, showing that modular operations are very successfully used in all these components of energy industry.

    Aimed at academic researchers and industry professionals, this book provides successful examples and analysis of the modular operation for the energy and fuel recovery and conversion. It is also a source of reference for those who are engaged in the development of modular systems for energy and fuel recovery and conversion.

  • Nanoparticle engineering for chemical-mechanical planarization : fabrication of next-generation nanodevices / Ungyu Paik, Jea-Gun Park

    In the development of next-generation nanoscale devices, higher speed and lower power operation is the name of the game. Increasing reliance on mobile computers, mobile phone, and other electronic devices demands a greater degree of speed and power. As chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) progressively becomes perceived less as black art and more as a cutting-edge technology, it is emerging as the technology for achieving higher performance devices.

    Nanoparticle Engineering for Chemical-Mechanical Planarization explains the physicochemical properties of nanoparticles according to each step in the CMP process, including dielectric CMP, shallow trend isolation CMP, metal CMP, poly isolation CMP, and noble metal CMP. The authors provide a detailed guide to nanoparticle engineering of novel CMP slurry for next-generation nanoscale devices below the 60nm design rule. They present design techniques using polymeric additives to improve CMP performance. The final chapter focuses on novel CMP slurry for the application to memory devices beyond 50nm technology.

    Most books published on CMP focus on the polishing process, equipment, and cleaning. Even though some of these books may touch on CMP slurries, the methods they cover are confined to conventional slurries and none cover them with the detail required for the development of next-generation devices. With its coverage of fundamental concepts and novel technologies, this book delivers expert insight into CMP for all current and next-generation systems.
