  • On and Off Chip Capacitor Free, Fast Response, Low Drop-out Voltage

    • Authors: Guru Prasad, Kumara Shama
      Pages: 159 - 165
      Abstract: A low drop-out [LDO] voltage regulator with fast
      transient response which does not require capacitor for proper
      operation is proposed in this paper. Recent cap-less LDOs do
      not use off chip capacitor but instead they use on chip capacitor
      which occupy large area on chip. In the proposed LDO this on
      chip capacitor is also avoided. A novel secondary local feed-back
      technique is introduced which helps to achieve a good transient
      response even in the absence of output capacitor. Further a
      self compensating error amplifier is selected to eliminate the
      need of compensating capacitor. Stability analysis shows that the
      proposed LDO is stable with a phase margin of 78 0 . The proposed
      LDO is laid out using Cadence spectre in 180 nm standard CMOS
      technology. Post layout simulation is carried out and LDO gives
      6mV/V and 360μV /mA line and load regulation respectively. An
      undershoot of 120 mV is observed during the load transition
      from 0 mA to 50 mA with 1 μs transition time, however LDO is
      able to recover within 1.4μs. Since capacitor is not required in
      any part of design, it occupies only 0.010824 mmXmm area on chip.

  • A Hepta-band Antenna Loaded with E-shaped Slot for S/C/X-band Applications

    • Authors: Imran Khan, Geetha D Devanagavi, Sudhindra K R, Rashmitha R K, Raksha Gunjal, Tanweer Ali
      Pages: 167 - 174
      Abstract: A compact planar multiband antenna operating at 3.1 (S-band) /4.7/6.4/7.6 (C-band) /8.9/10.4/11.8 GHz (X-band) is presented. The proposed Microstrip Patch Antenna (MSPA) consists of a rectangular radiator in which an E-shaped slot is etched out and a microstrip feed line. The E-shaped slot modifies the total current path thereby making the antenna to operate at seven useful bands. No external impedance matching circuit is used and the impedance matching at these bands are solely achieved by using a rectangular microstrip feed line of length 10mm (L6) and width 2mm (W10). The antenna has a compact dimension of and exhibits S11<-10dB bandwidth of about 6.45% (3.2-3.0GHz), 8.5% (4.9-4.5GHz), 7.6% (6.7-6.2GHz), 3.9% (7.8-7.5GHz), 5.7% (9.1-8.6GHz), 1.2% (10.44-10.35GHz) and 2.2% (11.87-11.62GHz). The simulation analysis of the antenna is carried out by using HFSS v.13.0

  • Compact coplanar-fed tree-shaped antenna

    • Authors: Małgorzata Malinowska, Marek Kitliński
      Pages: 175 - 180
      Abstract: The paper presents the concept of a fully planar tree-shaped antenna with quasi-fractal geometry. The shape of the proposed radiator is based on a multi-resonant structure. Developed planar tree has symmetrical branches with different length and is fed by a coplanar waveguide (CPW) with modified edge of the ground plane. The antenna of size 29 mm x25 mm  has been designed on  Taconic - RF-35 substrate (er = 3.5, tgde= 0.0018, h = 0.762 mm). The paper shows simulated and measured characteristics of return loss, as well as measured radiation patterns. The proposed antenna could be a good candidate for broadband applications (for instance: wideband imaging for medical application and weather monitoring radars in satellite communication etc.)

  • A New Frequency Reconfigurable Antenna Using Proximity Fed Technique for
           Wireless Applications

    • Authors: Aziz El Fatimi
      Pages: 181 - 187
      Abstract: This electronic paper presents an innovative technology
      for efficient use of the radio spectrum. This new frequency
      reconfigurable rotatable antenna is intended for wireless
      applications such as WLAN, WiMAX and Bluetooth mobile
      applications. The working principle of this proposed work is
      to print square patches mounted on the same circular dielectric
      substrate feed by a proximity coupling to eliminate the noise
      signal transmission and problems related to interference. The
      three positions correspond to an operating frequency controlled
      by a bipolar step-by-step engine. An optimization of the structure
      using the FEM finite element method as well as a comparison
      with other structures recently realized are detailed in this paper.
      The final numerical simulation results are: WLAN 4.95-5.53 GHz
      (BW = 11%) Gain = 6.06 dBi, WiMAX 3.35-3.75 GHz (BW =
      11.2%) Gain = 7.48 dBi and Bluetooth 2.3-2.51 GHz (BW =
      8.7%) Gain = 17.78 dBi.

  • Cost Reduction and Channel Capacity Enhancement of MIMO System Using
           Antenna Selection Techniques

    • Authors: Neeraj Kumar
      Pages: 189 - 194
      Abstract: MIMO technology has become very popular in a wireless communication system because of the many advantages of multiple antennas at the transmitting end and receiving end. The main advantages of MIMO systems are higher data rate and higher reliability without the need of extra power and bandwidth. The MIMO system provides higher data rate by using spatial multiplexing technique and higher reliability by using diversity technique. The MIMO systems have not only advantages, but also have disadvantages. The main disadvantage of MIMO system is that the multiple antennas required extra high cost RF modules. The extra RF modules increase the cost of wireless communication systems. In this research, the antenna selection techniques are proposed to minimize the cost of MIMO systems. Furthermore, this research also presents techniques for antenna selection to enhance the capacity of channel in MIMO systems.

  • A Compact Circularly Polarized Multiband Microstrip Patch Antenna with
           Defective Ground Structure

    • Authors: Ankit Sharma, Ashish Kumar Singh, Lakshmanan M, Deepak Gangwar
      Pages: 195 - 201
      Abstract: In this paper, a novel double-layer multiband circularly polarized microstrip patch antenna is proposed. The design employs the concept of slotted patch fed with proximity coupled feed having defected ground plane (DGS). The proposed antenna achieves multiple operating frequency bands including FB1 (11.15 GHz), FB2 (4.17 GHz), FB3 (4.87 GHz) and FB4 (1.98 GHz). The proposed antenna has obtained bandwidth of 12.98%, 4.7%, 4.69% and 5.39% at FB1, FB2, FB3 and FB4 bands, respectively. The proposed antenna also exhibits circular polarization in the frequency band FB4. The 3dB ARBW of the antenna is 9.23% at 11.2 GHz. Finally, a metallic cavity is used with the antenna to achieve a unidirectional radiation pattern. The designed antenna radiation characteristics are verified with the experimental results.

  • Combined small subgroups and side-channel attack on elliptic curves with
           cofactor divisible by $2^m$

    • Authors: Michał Jakub Wroński
      Pages: 203 - 209
      Abstract: Nowadays, alternative models of elliptic curves like Montgomery, Edwards, twisted Edwards, Hessian, twisted Hessian, Huff's curves and many others are very popular and many people use them in cryptosystems which are based on elliptic curve cryptography. Most of these models allow to use fast and complete arithmetic which is especially convenient in fast implementations that are side-channel attacks resistant. Montgomery, Edwards and twisted Edwards curves have always order of group of rational points divisible by 4. Huff's curves have always order of rational points divisible by 8. Moreover, sometimes to get fast and efficient implementations one can choose elliptic curve with even bigger cofactor, for example 16. Of course the bigger cofactor is, the smaller is the security of cryptosystem which uses such elliptic curve. In this article will be checked what influence on the security has form of cofactor of elliptic curve and will be showed that in some situations elliptic curves with cofactor divisible by $2^m$ are vulnerable for combined small subgroups and side-channel attacks.

      Pages: 211 - 216
      Abstract: The biggest software development companies conduct daily more than hundreds deployments which influence currently operating IT (Information Technology) systems. This is possible due to the availability of automatic mechanisms which are providing their functional testing and later applications deployment. Unfortunately, nowadays, there are no tools or even a set of good practices related to the problem on how to include IT security issues into the whole production and deployment processes. This paper describes how to deal with this problem in the large mobile telecommunication operator environment.

  • Contemporary Methods for Graph Coloring as an Example of Discrete

    • Authors: Adrian Bilski
      Pages: 235 - 243
      Abstract: This paper provides an insight into graph coloring
      application of the contemporary heuristic methods. It discusses a
      variety of algorithmic solutions for The Graph Coloring Problem
      (GCP) and makes recommendations for implementation. The
      GCP is the NP-hard problem, which aims at finding the minimum
      number of colors for vertices in such a way, that none of two
      adjacent vertices are marked with the same color.With the advent
      of multicore processing technology, the metaheuristic approach
      to solving GCP reemerged as means of discrete optimization. To
      explain the phenomenon of these methods, the author makes a
      thorough survey of AI-based algorithms for GCP, while pointing
      out the main differences between all these techniques.

      Pages: 245 - 252
      Abstract: Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO (techniquesuse multiple antennas at both transmitter and receiver forincreasing the channel reliability and enhancing the spectralefficiency of wireless communication system.MIMO Spatial Multiplexing (SM) is a technology that can increase the channelcapacity without additional spectral resources. The implementation of MIMO detection techniques become a difficult missionas the computational complexity increases with the number of
      transmitting antenna and constellation size. So designing detection techniques that can recover transmitted signals from SpatialMultiplexing (SM) MIMO with reduced complexity and highperformance is challenging. In this survey, the general model ofMIMO communication system is presented in addition to multipleMIMO Spatial Multiplexing (SM) detection techniques. These detection techniques are divided into different categories, such as linear detection, Non-linear detection and tree-search detection.
      Detailed discussions on the advantages and disadvantages of each detection algorithm are introduced. Hardware implementation of Sphere Decoder (SD) algorithm using VHDL/FPGA is also

      Pages: 253 - 257
      Abstract: Faithfull detection of non-utilized spectrum hole in available channel is a crucial issue for cognitive radio network. Choosing the best available channel for a secondary user transmission includes settling on decision of accessible choices of free frequency spectrum based on multiple objectives. Thus channel judgment can be demonstrated as several objective decision making (MODM) problem. An ultimate goal of this exploration is to define and execute a technique for multiple objective optimizations of multiple alternative of channel decision in Adhoc cognitive radio network. After a coarse review of an articles related to the multiple objective decision making within a process of channel selection, Multiple Objective Optimization on the basis of the Ratio Analysis (MOORA) technique is taken into consideration. Some important objectives values of non-utilized spectrum collected by a fusion center are proposed as objectives for consideration in the decision of alternatives. MOORA method is applied to a matrix of replies of each channel alternatives to channel objectives which results in set ratios. Among the set of obtained dimensionless ratios, all the channel alternatives are ranked in descending order. In MOORA, channel choices with moderate objectives can top in ranking order, which is hardly conceivable with linearly weighted objectives of the different channel by using different decision making technique.

  • Secure Data Aggregation Mechanism based on Constrained Supervision for
           Wireless Sensor Network

    • Authors: Puning Zhang
      Pages: 259 - 266
      Abstract: The data aggregation process of wireless sensor networks faces serious security problems. In order to defend the internal attacks launched by captured nodes and ensure the reliability of data aggregation, a secure data aggregation mechanism based on constrained supervision is proposed for wireless sensor network, which uses the advanced LEACH clustering method to select cluster heads. Then the cluster heads supervise the behaviors of cluster members and evaluate the trust values of nodes according to the communication behavior, data quality and residual energy. Then the node with the highest trust value is selected as the supervisor node to audit the cluster head and reject nodes with low trust values. Results show that the proposed mechanism can effectively identify the unreliable nodes, guarantee the system security and prolong the network lifetime.

  • Minimum Bend Shortest Rectilinear Route Discovery for a Moving Sink in a
           Grid Based Wireless Sensor Network

    • Authors: Sanu Thomas, Thomaskutty Mathew
      Pages: 267 - 276
      Abstract: In a rectilinear route, a moving sink is restricted to travel either horizontally or vertically along the connecting edges. We present a new algorithm that finds the shortest round trip rectilinear route covering the specified nodes in a grid based Wireless Sensor Network.  The proposed algorithm determines the shortest round trip travelling salesman path in a two-dimensional grid graph. A special additional feature of the new path discovery technique is that it selects that path which has the least number of corners (bends) when more than one equal length shortest round trip paths are available. This feature makes the path more suitable for moving objects like Robots, drones and other types of vehicles which carry the moving sink. In the prosed scheme, the grid points are the vertices of the graph and the lines joining the grid points are the edges of the graph. The optimal edge set that forms the target path is determined using the binary integer programming.

  • Comparing Gausian and exact models of malicious interference in VLC

    • Authors: Grzegorz J Blinowski, Adam Mościcki
      Pages: 277 - 286
      Abstract: Visible Light Communication (VLC) is a technique for high-speed, low-cost wireless data transmission based on LED luminaries. Wireless LAN environments are a major application of VLC. In these environments, VLC is used in place of traditional systems such as Wi-Fi. Because of the physical characteristics of visible light, VLC is considered to be superior to traditional radio-based communication in terms of security. However, as in all wireless systems, the security of VLC with respect to eavesdropping, signal jamming and modification must be analyzed. This paper focuses on the aspect of jamming in VLC networks. In environments where multiple VLC transmitters are used, there is the possibility that one or more transmitters will be hostile (or "rogue"). This leads to communication disruption, and in some cases, the hijacking of the legitimate data stream. In this paper we present the theoretical system model that is used in simulations to evaluate various rogue transmission scenarios in a typical indoor environment. The typical approach used so far in jamming analysis assumes that all disruptive transmissions may be modeled as Gaussian noise, but this assumption may be too simplistic. We analyze and compare two models of VLC jamming: the simplified Gaussian and the exact model, where the full characteristics of the interfering signal are taken into account. Our aim is to determine which methodology is adequate for studying signal jamming in VLC systems.

  • Payload Enhancement on Least Significant Bit Image Steganography using
           Edge Area Dilation

    • Authors: De Rosal Ignatius Moses Setiadi
      Pages: 287 - 292
      Abstract: This research proposes a method to enhance the payload message by embedding messages on the dilated edge areas by the Least Significant Bit (LSB) method. To add security aspects to messages, messages are not embedded directly on the LSB but encrypted with XOR operations with Most Significant Bit (MSB). The experimental results of the test in this study showed that the dilation process to some extent can increase the payload of 18.65% and the average bpp is 1.42 while maintaining the imperceptibilty quality of stego image with an average PSNR value of about 47 dB, SSIM is 0.9977 and MSE is 1.13.

  • Detecting objects using Rolling Convolution and Recurrent Neural Network

    • Authors: Wenqing Huang, YaMing Wang
      Pages: 293 - 301
      Abstract: —At present, most of the existing target detection algorithms use the method of region proposal to search for the target in the image. The most effective regional proposal method usually requires thousands of target prediction areas to achieve high recall rate.This lowers the detection efficiency. Even though recent region proposal network approach have yielded good results by using hundreds of proposals, it still faces the challenge when applied to small objects and precise locations. This is mainly because these approaches use coarse feature. Therefore, we propose a new method for extracting more efficient global features and multi-scale features to provide target detection performance. Given that feature maps under continuous convolution lose the resolution required to detect small objects when obtaining deeper semantic information; hence, we use rolling convolution (RC) to maintain the high resolution of low-level feature maps to explore objects in greater detail, even if there is no structure dedicated to combining the features of multiple convolutional layers. Furthermore, we use a recurrent neural network of multiple gated recurrent units (GRUs) at the top of the convolutional layer to highlight useful global context locations for assisting in the detection of objects. Through experiments in the benchmark data set, our proposed method achieved 78.2% mAP in PASCAL VOC 2007 and 72.3% mAP in PASCAL VOC 2012 dataset. It has been verified through many experiments that this method has reached a more advanced level of detection.

  • Recognition of Sign Language from High Resolution Images Using Adaptive
           Feature Extraction and Classification

    • Authors: Filip Csóka, Jaroslav Polec, Tibor Csóka, Juraj Kačur
      Pages: 303 - 308
      Abstract: A variety of algorithms allows gesture recognition in video sequences. Alleviating the need for interpreters is of interest to hearing impaired people, since it allows a great degree of self-sufficiency in communicating their intent to the non-sign language speakers without the need for interpreters. State-of-the-art in currently used algorithms in this domain is capable of either real-time recognition of sign language in low resolution videos or non-real-time recognition in high-resolution videos. This paper proposes a novel approach to real-time recognition of fingerspelling alphabet letters of American Sign Language (ASL) in ultra-high-resolution (UHD) video sequences. The proposed approach is based on adaptive Laplacian of Gaussian (LoG) filtering with local extrema detection using Features from Accelerated Segment Test (FAST) algorithm classified by a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN).  The recognition rate of our algorithm was verified on real-life data.

  • Conception of magnetic memory switched by time dependant current density
           and current electron spin polarization

    • Authors: Paul Steblinski, Tomasz Blachowicz
      Pages: 309 - 312
      Abstract: In this article the magnetic memory model with nano-meter size made from iron cells was proposed. For a purpose of determining the model specifications, the magnetic probes group with different geometrical parameters were examined using numeric simulations for the two different time duration of transitions among quasi-stable magnetic distributions found in the system, derived from the energy minimums. The geometrical parameters range was found, for which the 16 quasi–stable energetic states exist for the each probe. Having considered these results the 4 bits magnetic cells systems can be designed whose state is changed by spin-polarized current. Time dependent current densities and the current electron spin polarization directions were determined for all cases of transitions among quasi–stable states, for discovered set of 4 bits cells with different geometrical parameters. The 16-states cells, with the least geometrical area, achieved the 300 times bigger writing density in comparison to actual semiconductor solutions with the largest writing densities. The transitions among quasi-stable states of cells were examined for the time durations 105 times shorter than that for up to date solutions.

  • A New Design Methodology For Enhancing The Transient Loading Of Low
           Drop-out Regulators (LDRs)

    • Authors: Mohamed Bakry El_Mashade, Ahmed Abd_Monem Afifi, Tayel Dabbous
      Pages: 319 - 327
      Abstract: A new simple design methodology which makes LDR output nearly insensitive to jumps of the load current for long times is proposed. This methodology is tested for more than 104 seconds. Our procedure leans on cross coupling of the time second derivative of the LDR power transistor gate and drain voltages along with their currents. This technique keeps low values of these currents in order of nano or hundreds of micro amperes for undershot or overshot cases, respectively. The introduced methodology has been applied to a standard CMOS of 0.18μm technology for NMOS transistors and validated using MATLAB R2014a.

  • A Systematic approach to determining the duty cycle for regenerative
           comparator used in WSN

    • Authors: Dipak Marathe, Uday Khot
      Pages: 329 - 333
      Abstract: A low power regenerative comparator is very useful
      in Successive Approximation Register (SAR) type Analog to
      Digital Converter (ADC) for a Wireless Sensor Node (WSN).
      A regenerative type comparator generates output pulses by
      comparing input with a reference input. This paper deals with
      control of a power with an adjustable duty cycle. The regenerative
      comparator with an adjustable duty cycle and a positive feedback
      of a latch will help in improving accuracy, speed and also in
      achieving the less power consumption. The optimum value of
      a duty cycle is determined with taking into consideration of
      metastability timing constraints. The proposed low power regenerative
      comparator circuit is designed and simulated by using
      TSMC 180 nm CMOS technology. The comparator consumes
      power as low as 298.54 nW with a regenerative time 264 ps at 1
      V power supply.
