En la actualidad y desde hace algunos años, muchas carreras y módulos de grado superior se basan en la electrónica. En algunos institutos hay asignaturas que hacen una breve introducción a este mundo como es el caso de Tecnología u optativas como Electrotecnia, pero no llegan a profundizar mucho, sólo dan una breve introducción de conceptos básicos. Muchas veces resulta tedioso el resolver los circuitos y más cuando no se sabe si el resultado está bien o no ya que se plantean muchas ecuaciones con muchas incógnitas y es relativamente fácil equivocarse en un número. Esto hace que el análisis no haya...

Abstract. This paper uses a hybrid simulation approach in CoventorWare design environment which combines finite element analysis and circuit simulation modeling to obtain the optimal performance of piezoresistive microcantilever sensor. A 250 µm x 100 µm x 1 µm SiO2 cantilever integrated with 0.2 µm thick Si piezoresistor were used in this study. A finite element analysis on piezoresistive microcantilever sensor was conducted in CoventorWare Analyzer environment which incorporates MemMech and MemPZR modules. The sensor sensitivity was obtained by measuring resistivity changes in piezoresistive material in response to surface stress changes of microcantilever. The simulation results were later integrated with...
Abstract: A complete and harmonized fundamental circuit relational graph with four linear and four memory elements is constructed based on newly defined elements, which provides a guide to developing novel circuit functionalities in the future. In addition to resistor, capacitor and inductor which are defined in terms of a linear relationship between the charge q, the current i, the voltage v, and the magnetic flux , Chua proposed in 1971 the fourth linear circuit element to directly relate and q. A non-linear resistive device defined in memory i-v relation and dubbed memristor, was later attributed to such an element and...

This work is suppressed since 2010 and led to established scientists to be banned on the arXiv. We thank VIXRA for making critical work like this still available to relatively uncorrupted parts of the scientific community. We define a mechanical analog to the electrical basic circuit element M = dφ/dQ, the ideal mechanical memristance M = dp/dx, p being momentum. A never before described mechanical memory resistor M(x) is independent of velocity v and has a pinched hysteretic loop that collapses at high frequency in the v versus p plot: a perfect memristor. However, its memristance does not crucially involve...

Ultra High Frequency Radio Frequency Identification (UHF RFID) technology has gained prominence in recent years. It is being deployed extensively in supply chain and asset tracking by retailers to better control their inventory. The main drawback of UHF RFID tag antenna is that it is sensitive to the environment in which it operates. The performance of the tag degrades when placed on conductive or dielectric objects. While RFID tags near metal have been extensively evaluated in the literature, tags on and in dielectric media have received less scrutiny and rigorous evaluation. In this thesis, we develop a rigorous theoretical model...

ABSTRACT: In recent years, carbon nanotubes have been utilized for a variety of applications, including nanoelectronics and various types of sensors. In particular, researchers have sought to take advantage of the superior electrical properties of carbon nanotubes for fabricating novel strain sensors. This article presents a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT)-polyelectrolyte (PE) composite thin film strain sensor fabricated with a layer-by-layer (LbL) process. Optimization of bulk SWNT-PE strain sensor properties is achieved by varying various LbL fabrication parameters, followed by characterization of strain-sensing electromechanical responses. A resistor and capacitor (RC)-circuit model is proposed and validated with electrical impedance spectroscopy to fit...

Reciprocal beats between sinus node and atrium were studied in isolated rabbit heart tissue by microelectrode techniques. Early premature atrial responses which entered the sinus node frequently emerged to re-excite the atrium as "echoes. " When the premature atrial beats discharged some but not all nodal areas, the atrial echoes, in turn, appeared to re-enter the sinus node. Repetitive reciprocation involving the sino-atrial circuit was occasionally observed. Anatomic and temporal patterns of excitation at multiple recording sites suggest that "entrance " block and slow conduction of premature impulses within the sinus node may explain the observed reciprocation. The results support...
Downloadequency. The circuit element known as constant-phase elemenS0013-4651(98)08-014-8 CCC: $7. In the case of oxide-semiconductor-based chemical gas sensors, the dc measurements do not give information on the mechanism of processes. However, the ac method offers a powerful tool to exam-ine the nature of the conduction processes and the mechanism of the gas/solid interactions. b-Ga2O3 single-crystal1 and polycrystalline2,3 samples were examined in the medium-frequency range. Authors could distinguish the electronic and ionic conduction as a function of temperature. In this work it is shown that starting from low frequencies (10 mHz), impedance spectroscopy is suitable for distinguishing the effect of gas...
Optical Frequency Mixing Through Nanoantenna Enhanced Difference Frequency Generation: Metatronic Mixer
Chettiar, Uday K; Engheta, Nader
A design for a subwavelength all-optical frequency mixer is proposed. The method relies on enhanced difference-frequency generation, which is achieved in two steps with the help of plasmonic nanoantennas. The interaction of the two input signals with the nonlinear material is increased through the use of input nanoantennas, which focus the incident energy of two different frequencies onto the nanoparticle formed by a nonlinear material. Next, the difference-frequency emission is enhanced through the Purcell effect by the use of a separate output nanoantenna that is resonant at the difference frequency. The application of this twofold approach allows for a significant...

An adaptive impedance matching system is proposed. This system employs only a simple algorithm for convergence, therefore does not need any complicated mathematical formulation for modeling of the system itself as well as its nonlinear control elements. Also the proposed system utilizes only simple digital circuits for timing generation and basic analog circuits. Even with a small range of capacitance for control element in a matching circuit, the improvement in the mismatch is observed by 2-3dB over an impedance matching circuit with fixed capacitances. 1.

S. H. Zainud-deen; S. I. El-doda; K. H. Awadalla; H. A. Sharshar
Abstract—Finite-Difference Time Domain (FDTD) is used to calculate the input impedance of the cylindrical dielectric resonator (DRA) antenna with different dimensions. A lumped- element circuit model for the input impedance calculation is proposed. The genetic algorithm is used to calculate the elements of the equivalent circuit. The Model-Based Parameter Estimation (MBPE) technique is used to find the variation of each element in the equivalent circuit with varying the physical dimensions of the antenna. The use of this method reduces the time required for calculating the input impedance of the cylindrical DRA in each variation of the antenna dimension. 1.

Abstract. A new model of impedance-based structural health monitoring (SHM) using the spectral element method (SEM) and electric circuit analysis has been developed. This model provides additional information for more accurately identifying and locating damage and in designing the SHM system. Complex functions of the SHM system such as estimation of remaining life are also made possible with the use of the model. The circuit analysis can be applied to any type of structural model. However, since impedance-based SHM relies on high frequency excitation of the structure using piezoelectric patches, finite element modeling may not be applicable and instead the...

Well-defined experimental and simulating single peak to valley current density ratio (PVCDR) resonant tunneling electronic circuit (RTEC) element is proposed in this research. The variation of passive element value in RTEC structure is explored using simulation method, which obtains the optimum PVCDR values about 66. The simulating peak current density (PCD) value is such high as 38 mA. Even though the experimental PCD value is less, but the PVCDR value is as high as 22.5, which value is favorably compared with semiconductor resonant tunneling devices (RTDs) in single PVCDR RTEC element. The obvious triple negative differential resistance (NDR) is also...
