♥ Book Title : Controlled Burn
☯ Full Synopsis : "Once or twice a decade, an unknown short-story writer blazes onto the literary scene with work that is thrilling and new. Scott Wolven is such a talent, and his raw, blistering tales of hard-bitten convicts, dodgy informers, and men running from the law make for "the most exciting, authentic collection of short stories I have read in years," says George Pelecanos. Brooding, edgy, and sometimes violent, Controlled Burn's loosely linked stories are each in some way a distillation of hard time -- spent either in prison, the backwoods of Vermont, or the badlands of the American West. Peopled by boxers, drunks, truck drivers, murderers, bounty hunters, drifters traveling under assumed names, and men whose luck ran out a thousand miles ago, these stories feel hard-won from life, and if they are moody and stark, so too are they filled with human longing. Controlled Burn is divided into two sections: "The Northeast Kingdom" and "The Fugitive West." In each, Scott Wolven reveals a broken world where there is no bottom left to hit. In the haunting "Outside Work Detail," convicts stoically dig graves for their fellow prisoners yet reserve their deepest grief for the senseless death of a deer. "Crank" introduces Red Green, a maniacally brilliant addict who brews his own crystal meth in a backwoods lab, and whose high-energy antics inspire both cautious admiration and mortal fear in his business associates. In "Ball Lightning Reported," Red Green's ultimate fate is revealed. In "Atomic Supernova," a revenge-obsessed sheriff deputizes a known cop-killer to help him hunt down a counterfeiter and drug lord. The unexpectedly tender and heartbreaking "The Copper Kings" concerns a father facing the dark truth behind his son's disappearance. And in "Vigilance," a hunted man struggles to escape his past, always yearning for an honorable yet perhaps unreachable future. Powered by a spare, ruminative prose style that recalls the best of Denis Johnson and Thom Jones, Controlled Burn is an unforgettable debut."Article| Scott Wolven| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : An Introduction to Mixed-signal IC Test and Measurement
☯ Full Synopsis : "Integrated circuits incorporating both digital and analog functions have become increasingly prevalent in the semiconductor industry. Mixed-signal IC test and measurement has grown into a highly specialized field of electrical engineering. It has become harder to hire and train new engineers to become skilled mixed-signal test engineers. The slow learning curve for mixed-signal test engineers is largely due to the shortage of written materials and university-level courses on the subject of mixed-signal testing. While many books have been devoted to the subject of digital test and testability, the same cannot be said for analog and mixed-signal automated test and measurement. This book was written in response ot the shortage of basic course material for mixed-signal test and measurement. The book assumes a solid background in analog and digital circuits as well as a working knowledge of computers and computer programming. A background in digital signal processing and statistical analysis is also helpful, though not absolutely necessary. This material is designed to be useful as both a university textbook and as a reference manual for the beginning professional test engineer. The prerequisite for this book is a junior level course in linear continuous-time and discrete-time systems, as well as exposure ot elementary probability and statistical concepts. Chapter 1 presents an introduction to the context in which mixed-singal testing is performed and why it is necessary. Chapter 2 examines the process by which test programs are generated, from device data sheet to test plan to test code. Test program structure and functionality are also discussed in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 introduces basic DC measurement definitions, including continuity, leakage, offset, gain, DC power supply rejection ratio, and many other types of fundamental DC measurements. Chapter 4 covers the basics of absolute accuracy, resolution, software calibration, standards traceability, and measurement repeatability. In addition, basic data analysis is presented in Chapter 4. A more thorough treatment of data analysis and statistical analysis is delayed until Chapter 15. Chapter 5 takes a closer look at the architecture of a generic mixed-signal ATE tester. The generic tester includes instruments such as DC sources, meters, waveform digitizers, arbitrary waveform generators, and digital pattern generators with source and capture functionality. Chapter 6 presents an introduction to both ADC and DAC sampling theory. DAC sampling theory is applicable to both DAC circuits in the device under test and to the arbitrary waveform generators in a mixed-signal tester. ADC sampling theory is applicable to both ADC circuits in the device under test and to waveform digitizers in a mixed-signal tester. Coherent multi-tone sample sets are also introduced as an introduction to DSP based testing. Chapter 7 further develops sampling theory concepts and DSP-based testing methodologies, which are at the core of many mixed-signal test and measurement techniques. FFT fundamentals, windowing, frequency domain filtering, and other DSP-based testing fundamentals are covered in Chapter 6 and 7. Chapter 8 shows how basic AC channel tests can be performed economicaly using DSP-based testing. This chapter covers only non-sampled channels, consisting of combinations of op-amps, analog filters, PGAs and other continuous-time circuits. Chapter 9 explores many of these same tests as they are applied to sampled channels, which include DACs, ADCs, sample and hold (S/H) amplifiers, etc. Chapter 10 explains how the basic accuracy of ATE test equipment can be extended using specialized software routines. This subject is not necessarily taught in formal ATE tester classes, yet it is critical in the accurate measurement of many DUT performance parameters. Testing of DACs is covered in Chapter 11. Several kinds of DACs are studied, including traditional binary-weighted, resistive ladder, pulse with modulation (PWM), and sigma delta architectures. Traditional measurements like INL, DNL and absolute error are discussed. Chapter 12 builds upon the concepts in Chapter 11 to show how ADCs are commonly tested. Again, several different kinds of ADC's are studied, including binary-weighted, dual-slope, flash, semi-flash, and sigma-delta architectures. The weaknesses of each design are expalined, as well as the common methodologies used to probe their weaknesses. Chapter 13 explores the gray art of mixed-signal DIB design. Topics of interest include component selection, power and ground layout, crosstalk, shielding, transmission lines, and tester loading. Chapter 13 also illustrates several common DIB circuits and their use in mixed-signal testing. Chapter 14 gives a brief introduction to some of the techniques for analog and mixed-signal design for test. There are fewer structured approaches for mixed-signal DfT than for purely digital DfT. The more common ad-hoc methods are explained, as well as some of the industry standards such as IEEE Std. 1149.1 and 1149.4. A brief review of statistical analysis and Gaussian distributions is presented in Chapter 15. This chapter also shows how measurement results can be analyzed and viewed using a variety of software tools and display formats. Datalogs, shmoo plots, and histograms are discussed. Also, statistical process control (SPC) is explained, including a discussion of process control metrics such as Cp and Cpk. Chapter 16 examines the economis of production testing, The economics of testing are affected by many factors such as equipment purchase price, test floor overhead costs, test time, dual-head testing, multi-site testing, and time to market. A test engineer's debugging skills heavily impacts time to market. Chapter 16 examines the test debugging process to attempt to set down some general guidelines for debugging mixed-signal test programs. Finally, emerging trends that affect test economics and test development time are presented in Chapter 16. Some or all these trends will shape the future course of mixed-siganl test and measurement."Article| Mark Burns| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Why Don't American Cities Burn?
☯ Full Synopsis : "At 1:27 on the morning of August 4, 2005, Herbert Manes fatally stabbed Robert Monroe, known as Shorty, in a dispute over five dollars. It was a horrific yet mundane incident for the poor, heavily African American neighborhood of North Philadelphia—one of seven homicides to occur in the city that day and yet not make the major newspapers. For Michael B. Katz, an urban historian and a juror on the murder trial, the story of Manes and Shorty exemplified the marginalization, social isolation, and indifference that plague American cities. Introduced by the gripping narrative of this murder and its circumstances, Why Don't American Cities Burn? charts the emergence of the urban forms that underlie such events. Katz traces the collision of urban transformation with the rightward-moving social politics of late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century America. He shows how the bifurcation of black social structures produced a new African American inequality and traces the shift from images of a pathological black "underclass" to praise of the entrepreneurial poor who take advantage of new technologies of poverty work to find the beginning of the path to the middle class. He explores the reasons American cities since the early 1970s have remained relatively free of collective violence while black men in bleak inner-city neighborhoods have turned their rage inward on one another rather than on the agents and symbols of a culture and political economy that exclude them. The book ends with a meditation on how the political left and right have come to believe that urban transformation is inevitably one of failure and decline abetted by the response of government to deindustrialization, poverty, and race. How, Katz asks, can we construct a new narrative that acknowledges the dark side of urban history even as it demonstrates the capacity of government to address the problems of cities and their residents? How can we create a politics of modest hope?"Article| Michael B. Katz| Statement ..."
