  • During the development and qualification of a radiation-hardened, 0.5 {micro}m shallow trench isolation technology, several yield-limiting defects were observed. The 256K (32K x 8) static-random access memories (SRAMs) used as a technology characterization vehicle had elevated power supply current during wafer probe testing. Many of the die sites were functional, but exhibited quiescent power supply current (I{sub DDQ}) in excess of 100 {micro}A, the present limit for this particular SRAM. Initial electrical analysis indicated that many of the die sites exhibited unstable I{sub DDQ} that fluctuated rapidly. We refer to this condition as ''jitter.'' The I{sub DDQ} jitter appeared tomore » be independent of temperature and predominantly associated with the larger 256K SRAMs and not as prevalent in the 16K SRAMs (on the same reticle set). The root cause of failure was found to be two major processing problems: salicide bridging and stress-induced dislocations in the silicon islands.« less
  • Nowadays robots are indispensable in a major part of industry branches. Robots have the ability to perform precision demanding tasks at high speed and uninterruptedly over a long period of time, and to operate in environments which are inaccessible or hostile for human beings. In general, robots can even be considered as being more reliable than humans, and robots improve continuously thanks to ever more sophisticated technology. Therefore, to a certain extent, reliability and availability of robots can be taken for granted, and efforts of robot designers concentrate now more and more on safety, i.e. the risk robots may constitutemore » for persons. Safety, as e.g. defined for robots working in production sites, differs slightly from safety related to remote handling devices in fusion machines, which operate in a contaminated environment where no person is supposed to be. The term safety should therefore not only consider the potentiality of human loss, but must be extended to severe damage of machinery and equipment. This paper describes a safety analysis methodology for robotized mechanical systems. This method has been applied on a case study, a 1/3 scale mock-up of a handling device for the blankets of the fusion reactor segments (ROBERTINO). In particular were analyzed two different mechanical concepts of gripping the blankets.« less
  • A mutual Model Reference Adaptive System (MRAS) containing two models is proposed to implement a position sensorless Field Orientation Control (FOC) of an induction machine. For the rotor speed estimation, one model is used as a reference model and another is the adjustable model. Pure integration and stator leakage inductance are removed from the reference model, resulting in robust performance in low and high speed ranges. For the stator resistance identification, the two models switch their roles, that is, the reference model becomes the adjustable model and the adjustable model becomes the reference model. Assuming a brief stable rotor speedmore » interval, the stator resistance can be tracked very well. To further improve the estimation accuracy of rotor speed and stator resistance, a simple on-line rotor time constant identification is included. This mutual MRAS scheme is a cost effective approach for position sensorless variable speed implementation. Computer simulations and experimental results are given to show its effectiveness.« less
  • Various control strategies are being used to achieve high performance operation of linear drives. To maintain minimum volume and weight of the power supply unit on board the transportation vehicle, peak thrust per unit current operation is a desirable objective. True peak thrust per unit current through slip control is difficult to achieve because the parameters of linear induction machines vary during normal operation. This paper first develops a peak thrust per unit current control law based on the per-phase equivalent circuit for linear induction machines. The algorithm for identification of the variable parameters in induction machines is then presented.more » Application to an operational linear induction machine (LIM) demonstrates the utility of this algorithm. The control strategy is then simulated, based on an operational transit LIM, to show the capability of achieving true peak thrust operation for linear induction machines.« less
  • Molecular mechanics and dynamics are becoming widely used to perform simulations of molecular systems from large-scale computations of materials to the design and modeling of drug compounds. In this paper we address two major issues: a good decomposition method that can take advantage of future massively parallel processing systems for modest-sized problems in the range of 50,000 atoms and the communication requirements needed to achieve 30 to 40% efficiency on MPPs. We analyzed a scalable benchmark molecular dynamics program executing on the Intel Touchstone Deleta parallelized with an interaction decomposition method. Using a validated analytical performance model of the code,more » we determined that for an MPP with a four-dimensional mesh topology and 400 MHz processors the communication startup time must be at most 30 clock cycles and the network bandwidth must be at least 2.3 GB/s. This configuration results in 30 to 40% efficiency of the MPP for a problem with 50,000 atoms executing on 50,000 processors.« less
