  • Active inductor-based tunable impedance matching network for RF power amplifier application 

    Saberkari, Alireza; Ziabakhsh, Saman; Martínez García, Herminio; Alarcón Cot, Eduardo José (2015-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents the use of a new structure of active inductor named cascoded flipped-active inductor (CASFAI) in a T-type high-pass tunable output matching network of a class-E RF power amplifier (RFPA) to control the ...
  • Characterization and modeling of multicast communication in cache-coherent manycore processors 

    Abadal Cavallé, Sergi; Martinez, Raul; Solé Pareta, Josep; Alarcón Cot, Eduardo José; Cabellos Aparicio, Alberto (2016-01-21)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The scalability of Network-on-Chip (NoC) designs has become a rising concern as we enter the manycore era. Multicast support represents a particular yet relevant case within this context, mainly due to the poor performance ...
  • Temperature gradient sensor from pulsed power supply duty cycle in ultra-low-power energy harvesting system 

    Jové Casulleras, Roger; Ramos Castro, Juan José; Corimanya, H; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Alarcón Cot, Eduardo José; Amézaga Sarries, Adrià; Bou Balust, Elisenda (Institution of Electrical Engineers, 2014-05-22)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Directly interfacing sensors that link sensors to micro-controllers without a signal conditioning circuit or an analogue-to-digital converter on the one side and energy harvesting systems on the other side are two key ...
  • Time-domain analysis of Graphene-based miniaturized antennas for ultra-short-range impulse radio communications 

    Abadal Cavallé, Sergi; Llatser Marti, Ignacio; Mestres Sugrañes, Albert; Lee, Heekwan; Alarcón Cot, Eduardo José; Cabellos Aparicio, Alberto (2015-02-24)
    Article

  • Broadcast-enabled massive multicore architectures: a wireless RF approach 

    Abadal Cavallé, Sergi; Sheinman, Benny; Katz, Oded; Markish, Ofer; Elad, Danny; Fournier, Yvan; Roca, Damian; Hanzich, Mauricio; Houzeaux, Guillaume; Nemirovsky, Mario; Alarcón Cot, Eduardo José; Cabellos Aparicio, Alberto (2015-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Broadcast traditionally has been regarded as a prohibitive communication transaction in multiprocessor environments. Nowadays, such a constraint largely drives the design of architectures and algorithms all-pervasive in ...
  • Design of an on-chip hybrid DC/DC converter 

    Cosp Vilella, Jordi; Martínez García, Herminio (2015-07-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents the design of a hybrid on-chip VLSI DC/DC converter for low to medium integrated circuit power consumption that combines a switching and a linear regulator in parallel. The main goal is to take the best ...
  • DC temperature measurements to characterize the central frequency and 3 dB bandwidth in mmW power amplifiers 

    Aragonès Cervera, Xavier; Mateo Peña, Diego; González Jiménez, José Luis; Vidal López, Eva María; Gómez Salinas, Didac; Martineau, B; Altet Sanahujes, Josep (2015-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    This letter shows how a temperature sensor and a simple DC voltage multimeter can be used as instruments to determine the central frequency and 3 dB bandwidth of a 60 GHz linear power amplifier (PA). Compared to previous ...
  • ¿Es sostenible la Estrella de la Muerte? 

    Sánchez Carracedo, Fermín; García Almiñana, Jordi; Vidal López, Eva María; López Álvarez, David; Cabré Garcia, José M.; García García, Helena; Alier Forment, Marc; Martín Escofet, Carme (2015-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    El futuro será sostenible o no será. Por eso, es fundamental que todos los Trabajos de Fin de Grado (TFG) de las ingenierías incorporen un estudio de sostenibilidad que analice su impacto ambiental, social y económico. ...
  • Contribution to the PV-to-inverter sizing ratio determination using a custom flexible experimental setup 

    Camps, Xavier; Velasco Quesada, Guillermo; Hoz Casas, Jordi de la; Martín Cañadas, María Elena (2015-07-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents a novel approach to the experimental validation of the optimal PV-to-inverter sizing ratio value for the energy yield maximization of a GCPVS by means the implementation of a custom workbench using a ...
