Paper Title:

Implementation of 2D Hartley transform using Distributed Arithmetic

Abstract:   Discrete  cosine  transform  (DCT)  is  usually  used  in JPEG  based  image  transform  coding.  This  paper  presents separable  2-D  discrete  Hartley  transform  (SDHT)  and  its Distributed  Arithmetic  (DA)  based  hardware  architecture  as an  alternate  to  DCT  in  transform  based  coding  of  image compression.  The  proposed  DA  architecture  for  1-D  DHT  has very  less  computations  as  compared  to  existing  1-D DCT.  The proposed  DHT  architecture implemented in FPGA indicates  a significant  hardware  savings  as  compared  to  FPGA  resources used  in  an  efficient  memory  based  DA  approach.  The additional advantage of  SDHT  is  that  its  inverse  transform  is same  as  forward  transform  with  a  constant  division.  This is demonstrated through a Xilinx FPGA XC3s500E device.

Paper Title:

VLSI Implentation of Viterbi decoder in MIMO Systems

Abstract:   Space-time trellis code (STTC) has been widely applied to coded multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. The complexity of STTC decoding lies in the branch metric calculation in the Viterbi algorithm and increases significantly along with the number of antennas and the modulation order. Consequently, a low-complexity algorithm to mitigate the computational burden is proposed. The design is implemented Xilinx Spartan 3 Xc3s200E fpga and the total power consumed by the device is 0.041W.

Paper Title:

Design of High Speed CODEC for On Chip Cross Talk Avoidance

Abstract:   The cross talk is dependent on the data transition patterns  on  the  bus,  patterns  can  be  classified  based  on  the severity of the crosstalk they impose on the bus. The general idea behind  techniques  that  improve  on-chip  bus  speed  is  to  remove undesirable  patterns  that  are  associated  with  certain  classes  of crosstalk. Different schemes incur different area overheads since they requires additional wires, spacing between wires or both. We  analyze  the  properties  of  the  FPF-CAC and  show  that mathematically, a mapping scheme exists between the data wordsand  code  words.  Our proposed CODEC design offers  a near-optimal area  overhead performance. An improved version of the CODEC is then presented, which achieves theoretical optimal performance.  We also investigate the implementation details of the CODECs, including design complexity and the speed. Optimization schemes are provided to reduce the size of the CODEC and improve its speed. The design was implemented on Xilinx Xc3S200 fpga and the total power consumed by the device was estimated as 0.041W.

Paper Title:

Implementation of Coordinate Rotation algorithm for Hardware Multipliers

Abstract:   Most of the hardware algorithms exist to handle the hardware intensive signal processing problems. Among these algorithms is a set of shift-add algorithms  collectively  known  as  CORDIC  for  computing  a  wide  range  of functions including  certain  trigonometric,  hyperbolic and  logarithmic functions. Apart from this it can handle linear functions. Even though numerous articles covering various aspects of CORDIC algorithms, very few surveys concentrate on implementation in FPGAs. CORDIC (Coordinate Rotation Digital Computer) is an algorithm for computing transcendental functions like sine, cosine and arctangent.  The method can also be easily extended to compute square roots as well as hyperbolic functions.   The algorithm works by reducing the calculation into a number of micro-rotations for which the arctangent value is precomputed and loaded in a table.  This method reduces the computation to addition, subtraction, compares, and shifts.Various digital architectures were proposed and compared, including low-cost sequential and high performance pipelined solutions. Fixed point and floating point arithmetic was considered. The concepts were implemented in VHDL, verified and synthesized with Xilinx tools. Selected approach was physically implemented and tested.

Open Core Protocol for High Performance on Chip Bus

Abstract:   The need for on-chip bus protocols are increased drastically for efficient and lossless communication among large number  of  IP  cores  of  SOC  design.  This  paper proposes  a high-performance,  highly  scalable,  bus-independent  interface between  IP  cores  named  as  Open Core  Protocol-International partnership. The  Open  Core Protocol  (OCP)  is  a  core  centric point  to point  protocol which provides lossless communication and reduces design time,  design  risk,  and  manufacturing  costs for  SOC designs  .  Main  property  of  OCP  is  that  it  can  be configured  with  respect  to  the  application  required.  The OCP is chosen because of its advanced supporting features such  as  configurable  sideband  control  signaling  and  test harness  signals,  when  compared  to  other  core  protocols. The  OCP  defines  a  point-to-point  interface  between  two communicating entities such as IP cores and bus interface modules.  One  entity  acts  as  the  master  of  the  OCP instance, and the other as the slave .In this paper, the most efficient  bus  architecture  was  adopted  to  support  most advanced  bus  functionalities  including  simple transactions,  burst  transactions,  lock  transactions, pipelined transactions, and out-of-order transactions withrespect to its suitable application in the real time product. The  Open  Core  Protocol  (OCP)  was  designed  and  the hardware  modeling  for  that  architecture  was  done  using VHDL.  This  design  is  Simulated  and  Synthesized. An experimental  result  shows the  efficiency  of  the  proposed bus architecture and interface.

Study of Digital Learning and its implementation on Student Mobility in Engineering Education

Abstract:  The advent of information and communication technologies (ICT), learning has entered into an era of change unparalleled in this generation. The issue is, how theoretical knowledge can apply to real world problem? Academics worldwide have come to the conclusion that traditional learning methods must give way to Digital learning (D-learning). However, in order to change a paradigm, there must be a change in the way that people believe, think and act. A change to Digital learning in engineering education is a paradigm that has its associated challenges. Innovations are required so as to accomplish Digital learning in engineering education.  Developing Digital learning tools that will take engineering education beyond traditional capabilities is a part of this challenge. In this paper, I have presented a review on design and development of virtual classroom environment using real-time streaming technology for live and online activity. Student can access the lecture even in presence of mobility for engineering education and exchange their views and ideas on education matter with teachers. This virtual classroom environment with digital learning education can transform the conventional paper education to the paper less education

Design and Fabrication of Automatic Storage and Retrieval System

Abstract:   The paper summarizes design and fabrication of a cost effective single aisle Automatic storage and retrieval system whose database regarding the status of storage location (either filled or empty) is stored in its own operating system. This system can be efficiently used in material handling or store management. Material handling can be defined as movement of raw-material, semi-finished goods, finished articles through various stages of productions and finally storage of finished product in warehouse. Material handling forms main aspect to be considered in production processes in industries. Starting from the time raw material enters the factory and goes out the factory gate in form of finished product, it is handled at all stages in between, no matter it is in stores or on the shop floor. It has been estimated that the average material handling cost is roughly 40% - 50% of total production cost. Our project aims to ease the efforts in store management. The store of industry comprises of many parts or components which are required at the time of assembly of any product or regular inspection in which it is required to change a particular part or component of product. At this stage it becomes difficult to search a particular part or component in the store. This can be made easy by allotting the part or component, with a specific number which can be detected by sensor in robot’s end effectors and further made available to user, with a help of conveyor. It will also reduce total handling time. It becomes easier, cleaner and safer method of material handling. It will also decrease fatigue incurred by workers, by reducing their physical work. Hence this project proves useful in store management.

Design and Fabrication of Liquid Dispensing Machine Using Automatic Control for Engg. Industry

Abstract:   Liquid dispenser machine is commonly found in our daily life in different places like offices, bus stands, railway stations, petrol pumps. In this thesis we are going to present a touch screen operated liquid dispenser machine. Using a touch screen interface, we can effectively increase operator accuracy, reduce training time and improve overall efficiencies, thus keeping cost down a properly designed touch screen interface can improve overall accuracy.  Present liquid dispenser machine available in industries are costly, complex and hard in design and fabrication. Main requirement from this machine is its metering or measuring quality. Accuracy of measuring is very less in various machine. Hence, the basic theme behind this research is to improve these disadvantages of liquid dispenser machine. The liquid dispenser machine presently available is based on practice and past experience of the employer in his working field and also, its efficiency declines at a greater rate after a period of time. By surveying the present machines and comparing their present limitations, new model will be fabricated so that designs data can be obtained to formulate experimental data based model for this process. The design of model will be so simple that it can be adopted easily by small industries. Easy technology will help to reduce metering problem.

Paper Title:

An Amalgamated 3D Spatial Data Model for City Modelling

Abstract:   3D spatial data models for city modelling have seen great improvement and most cities around the globe are now attempting to create virtual 3D models of their cities. The current city Earth surface is actually an amalgamation of natural and man-made objects above, on and below the city terrain surface. 3D modelling of subsurface objects and their integration with the surface and above surface objects has not seen much progress and the attempt at viewing above surface and subsurface man-made objects for Earth realism not achieved. Level of Details (LoD) for spatial objects has not been extended to man-made features below the surface. LoD0 maps for surface and subsurface integration exist for most city centres but this does not exist for 3D city models. Hence the need for a 3D data model suitable for above and below surface man-made constructions. This paper discusses 3D spatial data models currently in existence for the integration of surface and subsurface models. A suitable geometric and topological 3D object oriented model (3DOOM) is proposed using the 3D TIN as the base model. A vector approach using implicit geometry is used within a Microsoft Visual C plus plus 2010 programming environment with OpenGL libraries to create 3D spatial objects for the above and below surface man-made constructions. The simulation of an integrated 3D spatial model is presented. A stand-alone above and below 3D spatial models for man-made constructions is assessed up to LoD4 for the subsurface and LoD3 for the above surface in an integrated model.

Paper Title:

Study of Fractal Circular Patch Micro-Strip Antenna over Traditional Antenna

Abstract:   Today’s antenna systems demand versatility and unobtrusiveness. Operators are looking for systems that can perform over several frequency bands or are reconfigurable as the demands on the system changes. Microstrip or patch antennas are becoming increasingly useful because they can be printed directly onto a circuit board. Microstrip antennas are becoming very widespread within the mobile phone market. Fractal antennas have entered the view of many as a very promising solution. Fractal antennas size can be shrunk from two to four times with surprising good performance over Traditional antenna. Because FEAs(Fractal Element Antenna) are self-loading, no antenna tuning coils or capacitors are necessary. Fractal antenna theory is built, as is the case with conventional antenna theory, on classic electromagnetic theory. Fractal antenna theory uses a modern (fractal) geometry that is a natural extension of Euclidian geometry. Dual and Triple band Fractal circular micro-strip antennas offers increase in bandwidth and gain at all multiband as well as the size of antenna gets reduced.

A Unified Approach for Forensic Analysis of DDOS Attack in Manet

Abstract:   Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) facilitates distributed wireless communication without pre-existing centralised infrastructure. The network is mobile and setting of connection is ad-hoc.The design of MANET helps improving network scalability, as well as reducing the time to deploy a new network infrastructure.  However, the benefits of MANET come with the cost in reduced security. A typical DDoS attack is the flooding attack in which attackers paralyse the target networks by flooding excessive volume of traffic to deplete key resources of the target. When an attack on the target system is successful enough to crash or disrupt, this event as the breach that triggers investigation. Forensic investigation provide source of network evidence and helpful in design and recovery mechanism for network attacks. This paper review various work done in the field of DDoS attack forensic for MANET.

Location Dependent Key management Scheme for Wireless Sensor Network

Abstract:   WSN is an emerging technology and have great potential to be employed in critical situations like battlefields and commercial applications such as building, traffic surveillance, habitat monitoring and smart homes and many more scenarios. One of the major challenges wireless sensor networks face today is security. To deliver data without being compromised, WSN services rely on secure communication and key distribution. The existing key management solutions require a large memory space and more number of keys to be stored on each sensor node and still compromise of sensor nodes is critical issue, which must be considered. LDK is most widely used scheme now a days so we tried to work on this scheme. The aim of this paper is to analyze the proposed key management schemes for WSN based on their performance by realizing different environments. The analysis has been done theoretically and implemented through JAVA.

Interpreting Transformer Winding Axial Displa- cements using Transfer Function Parameters

Abstract:   The paper presents the results of   the experimental investigation carried out on a transformer to obtain frequency response data under axial displacements. These displacements were physically simulated to study and identify the various parameters that influence the frequency responses. Transfer Function using real rational polynomial technique was computed from the frequency response data. Various transfer function parameters were computed for reference and simulated faulty frequency response data. These parameters are then analyzed to relate changes to characterize the defects. The analysis presented based on the transfer function characteristic parameter changes will help in diagnosing transformer winding axial displacements.

Paper Title:

An Efficient Segmentation Technique for Mri Medical Images

Abstract:   Image segmentation is a technique to locate certain objects or boundaries within an image. Image segmentation plays a crucial role in many medical imaging applications. There are many algorithms and techniques have been developed to solve image segmentation problems. Spectral pattern is not sufficient in high resolution image for image segmentation due to variability of spectral and structural information. Thus the spatial pattern or texture techniques are used. Thus we proposed an efficient image segmentation technique, in which we have used the concept of Adaptive Fuzzy C-Means Algorithm for segmentation of high resolution medical image. The proposed method is implemented in Matlab and verified using various kinds of high resolution medical images. The experimental results shows that the proposed image segmentation system is efficient than the existing segmentation systems.

Paper Title:

A VLSI Implementation of Modulo   Multiplier By Using Radix-8 Modified Booth Algorithm

Abstract:   A special moduli set Residue Number System (RNS) of high dynamic range (DR) can speed up the execution of very large word-length repetitive multiplications found in applications like public key cryptography. The modulo 2n-1multiplier is usually the noncritical datapath among all modulo multipliers in such high-DR RNS multiplier. This timing slack can be exploited to reduce the system area and power consumption without compromising the system performance. With this precept, a family of radix-8 Booth encoded modulo 2n-1 multipliers, with delay adaptable to the RNS multiplier delay, is proposed. The modulo 2n-1multiplier delay is made scalable by controlling the word-length of the ripple carry adder, k employed for radix-8 hard multiple generation. Formal criteria for the selection of the adder word-length are established by analyzing the effect of varying k on the timing of multiplier components. It is proven that for a given n, there exist a number of feasible values of k such that the total bias incurred from the partially-redundant partial products can be counteracted by only a single constant binary string. This compensation constant for different valid combinations of n and k can be precomputed at design time using number theoretic properties of modulo 2n-1 arithmetic and hardwired as a partial product to be accumulated in the carry save adder tree. The proposed radix-8 Booth encoded modulo 2n-1multiplier saves substantial area and power consumption over the radix-4 Booth encoded multiplier in medium to large word-length RNS multiplication.

Reduction of Power Line Interference by Using Adaptive Filtering Techniques in Electrocardiogram

Abstract:   Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal is affected by many noise interferences. Out of all the noise effects the power line interference is the predominant one. In this paper the implementation of the adaptive algorithm techniques for reduction in this power line interference is shown and a comparison of these techniques is performed. The adaptive filters used have shown a good improvement in the SNR (Signal– to – Noise Ratio). The LMS (Least mean square), NLMS (Normalized LMS), and SLMS (Sign LMS) algorithms are discussed and compared.

Lean Six Sigma Application for Sustainable Production: A Case Study for Margarine Production in Zimbabwe

Abstract:   Lean Six Sigma is an integration of two World Class Manufacturing improvement philosophies(Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma) that help organizations improve their performance and competitiveness. The principles are applied to margarine manufacturing. The Value Stream Mapping tool is used to map the processes and the Six Sigma’s Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) methodology applied to attain improvements. The Current State Map (CSM) is drawn and using the DMAIC methodology, the Future State Map (FSM) is drawn. The production line ultimately achieves improvements in cycle times and in Value Added time ratio from 39% to 94%. There are envisaged improvements of up to 86% on cycle times for individual processes.
