(2018-07-19)The first on-chip three-level boost converter with 0.28 mm2 die size is implemented using 65 nm CMOS technology. Leveraging the advantages of hybrid switched capacitor converters, the converter manages to provide a maximum ...
(2018-07-19)Since the widespread adoption of the internet, computer security has become one of the primary concerns of computer systems engineers, who are often faced with a choice between increased performance and stronger security ...
Scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy of wet chemical synthesized porous graphene nanoribbons in ultra-high vacuum (2018-07-02)This thesis investigates wet chemically synthesized graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) on semiconductor substrates using scanning tunneling microscopy and documents the extensive maintenance required for the ultra-high vacuum ...
(2018-06-25)We present DeepMVS, a deep convolutional neural network (ConvNet) for multi-view stereo reconstruction. Taking an arbitrary number of posed images as input, we first produce a set of plane-sweep volumes and use the proposed ...
(2018-07-18)This thesis presents two unique sets of fault injections on mission-critical computer systems with the goal of (1) understanding the impact of faults, errors and failures, and (2) evaluating fault-tolerance and resilience ...
