Technology for the Internet Era

Synopsis
A video recording of a short course held by the International Electron Devices Meeting (IDEM) in 2000. The new millennium marks the beginning of the Internet era. With the proliferation of high speed and portable Internet access devices such as cellular phone, PDA, cable modem and DSL, ubiquitous, high speed Internet access is becoming a reality. In the PC era of the ‘80s and ‘90s, microprocessor and memory were the components that drove growth of the PC industry. In this Internet era, DSP and analog/mixed signals circuits will be the components that drive the growth in Internet products. The field of Internet access systems is very diverse, ranging from wireless cellular phones to wired broadband access devices with correspondingly diverse circuit and device requirements. This course explores the key components of both wireless and wired Internet access systems and the implications on device technology. The course starts with system overviews and then discusses the corresponding circuit and device technology. The first lecture describes the system overview of wireless systems including cellular, satellite and short distance applications. The second lecture addresses the wired systems for broadband access and home network applications. The third lecture presents the issues of low power system and circuit design for networked applications. The fourth lecture deals with the mixed signal circuit design for System-on-Chip. The final lecture discusses the RF technology issues for both wireless and wired system applications.
