Turbo product codes based on convolutional codes

In this article, we introduce a new class of product codes based on convolutional codes, called convolutional product codes. The structure of product codes enables parallel decoding, which can significantly increase decoder speed in practice. The use of convolutional codes in a product code setting makes it possible to use the vast knowledge base for convolutional codes as well as their flexibility in fast parallel decoders. Just as in turbo codes, interleaving turns out to be critical for the performance of convolutional product codes. The practical decoding advantages over serially-concatenated convolutional codes are emphasized.


Verification of Modular Diagnosability With Local Specifications for Discrete-Event Systems
Schmidt, Klaus Verner (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-09-01)
In this paper, we study the diagnosability verification for modular discrete-event systems (DESs), i.e., DESs that are composed of multiple components. We focus on a particular modular architecture, where each fault in the system must be uniquely identified by the modular component where it occurs and solely based on event observations of that component. Hence, all diagnostic computations for faults to be detected in this architecture can be performed locally on the respective modular component, and the obt...
RC Performance Evaluation of Interconnect Architecture Options Beyond the 10-nm Logic Node
Kıncal, Serkan; Abraham, Mathew C.; Schuegraf, Klaus (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-06-01)
This paper summarizes the findings of an RC performance modeling approach for evaluating various material and architecture options by which interconnect wires are incorporated onto integrated circuits. For the present dual-damascene structure, the grain boundary and surface scattering modes are identified as the top contributors to resistance degradation, along with the cross-sectional area consumed by the liner/barrier layers. Self-forming barriers, a technology that provides direct Cu-insulator interfaces...
Digital Wideband Integrators With Matching Phase and Arbitrarily Accurate Magnitude Response
Candan, Çağatay (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-09-01)
A new class of linear-phase infinite-impulse-response digital wideband integrators based on the numerical integration rules is presented. The proposed class of integrators exactly matches the desired phase response of the continuous-time integrator (after group delay compensation) and can approximate the magnitude response as closely as desired by increasing the number of system zeros, i.e., the order of the integrator. The low-order integrators (up to the fourth degree) generated by this technique can be i...
Analysis and characterization of an electrostatically actuated in-plane parylene microvalve
Yıldırım, Ender; Külah, Haluk (IOP Publishing, 2011-10-01)
This paper presents analysis and implementation of a simple electrostatic microvalve designed for use in parylene-based lab-on-a-chip devices. The microvalve utilizes an in-plane collapsing diaphragm. To investigate the pull-in behavior of the diaphragm and flow characteristics, a thorough analysis is carried out using the finite element method. Microvalves with different diaphragm radii are fabricated using surface micromachining techniques. Pull-in tests are carried out under the no-flow condition with ai...
Genetic algorithm for personnel assignment problem with multiple objectives
Arslanoğlu, Yılmaz; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
This thesis introduces a multi-objective variation of the personnel assignment problem, by including additional hierarchical and team constraints, which put restrictions on possible matchings of the bipartite graph. Besides maximization of summation of weights that are assigned to the edges of the graph, these additional constraints are also treated as objectives which are subject to minimization. In this work, different genetic algorithm approaches to multi-objective optimization are considered to solve th...
