Conference Proceeding
Ma, S., Wilkinson, A. J., & Paulson, K. S. (2010). A phase modulation-based ultrasonic communication system using Variable Structure Control. doi:10.1109/icct.2010.5688708

Narrow bandwidth transducers used in existing ultrasonic data communication systems are known to be devices with a high Q resonant response and low coupling to both the electrical drive and acoustic output interfaces. These features limit the speed o... Read More

Review of high level fault modeling approaches for mixed-signal systems (2010)
Journal Article
Xia, L., Wilkinson, A., & Bell, I. (2010). Review of high level fault modeling approaches for mixed-signal systems. Journal of Electronics (China), 27(4), (490-497). doi:10.1007/s11767-011-0350-1. ISSN 0217-9822

In the modern analogue design, Transistor Level Fault Simulation (TLFS) plays the importantpart since every fault in the whole circuit has to be simulated at that level. Unfortunately, it isa very CPU intensive task even though it maintains the high... Read More

Automated model generation algorithm for high-level fault modeling (2010)
Journal Article
Xia, L., Wilkinson, A. J., & Bell, I. M. (2010). Automated model generation algorithm for high-level fault modeling. IEEE transactions on computer-aided design of integrated circuits and systems, 29(7), 1140-1145. doi:10.1109/TCAD.2010.2045556

High-level modeling for operational amplifiers (opamps) has been previously carried out successfully using models generated by published automated model generation approaches. Furthermore, high-level fault modeling (HLFM) has been shown to work reaso... Read More
