Written for scientists, researchers, and engineers, Non-volatile Memories describes the recent research and implementations in relation to the design of a new generation of non-volatile electronic memories. The objective is to replace existing memories (DRAM, SRAM, EEPROM, Flash, etc.) with a universal memory model likely to reach better performances than the current types of memory: extremely high commutation speeds, high implantation densities and retention time of information of about ten years.
Gain Critical Insight into the Parallel I/O Ecosystem Parallel I/O is an integral component of modern high performance computing (HPC), especially in storing and processing very large datasets to facilitate scientific discovery. Revealing the state of the art in this field, High Performance Parallel I/O draws on insights from leading practitioners, researchers, software architects, developers, and scientists who shed light on the parallel I/O ecosystem. The first part of the book explains how large-scale HPC facilities scope, configure, and operate systems, with an emphasis on choices of I/O hardware, middleware, and applications. The book then traverses up the I/O software stack. The second part covers the file system layer and the third part discusses middleware (such as MPIIO and PLFS) and user-facing libraries (such as Parallel-NetCDF, HDF5, ADIOS, and GLEAN). Delving into real-world scientific applications that use the parallel I/O infrastructure, the fourth part presents case studies from particle-in-cell, stochastic, finite volume, and direct numerical simulations. The fifth part gives an overview of various profiling and benchmarking tools used by practitioners. The final part of the book addresses the implications of current trends in HPC on parallel I/O in the exascale world.
Variability is one of the most challenging obstacles for IC design in the nanometer regime. In nanometer technologies, SRAM show an increased sensitivity to process variations due to low-voltage operation requirements, which are aggravated by the strong demand for lower power consumption and cost, while achieving higher performance and density. With the drastic increase in memory densities, lower supply voltages, and higher variations, statistical simulation methodologies become imperative to estimate memory yield and optimize performance and power. This book is an invaluable reference on robust SRAM circuits and statistical design methodologies for researchers and practicing engineers in the field of memory design. It combines state of the art circuit techniques and statistical methodologies to optimize SRAM performance and yield in nanometer technologies. Provides comprehensive review of state-of-the-art, variation-tolerant SRAM circuit techniques; Discusses Impact of device related process variations and how they affect circuit and system performance, from a design point of view; Helps designers optimize memory yield, with practical statistical design methodologies and yield estimation techniques.

Das Buch bietet eine umfassende und aktuelle Darstellung der Konzepte und Techniken zur Implementierung von Datenbanksystemen. Ausgangspunkt ist ein hierarchisches Architekturmodell: Die Schichten dieses Modells ermoglichen es, den Systemaufbau, die Einordnung der bereitzustellenden Funktionen und ihr Zusammenspiel detailliert zu beschreiben. Es werden alle Aspekte der Datenabbildung mit den erforderlichen Algorithmen und Datenstrukturen behandelt, also vor allem Externspeicherabbildung, Realisierung von Speicherungsstrukturen und Zugriffspfaden sowie die Ableitung logischer Sichten. Neben der Datenabbildung, in deren Aufgaben sich Speicher-, Zugriffs- und Datensystem teilen, steht als zweiter Schwerpunkt des Buches das Transaktionskonzept und seine Erweiterungen. Dabei werden insbesondere alle Funktionen zur Synchronisation des Mehrbenutzerbetriebs und zur Wiederherstellung der Datenbank im Fehlerfall (Logging und Recovery) dargestellt.
Desktop or DIY 3D printers are devices you can either buy preassembled as a kit, or build from a collection of parts to design and print physical objects including replacement household parts, custom toys, and even art, science, or engineering projects. Maybe you have one, or maybe you're thinking about buying or building one. Practical 3D Printers takes you beyond how to build a 3D printer, to calibrating, customizing, and creating amazing models, including 3D printed text, a warship model, a robot platform, windup toys, and arcade-inspired alien invaders. You'll learn about the different types of personal 3D printers and how they work; from the MakerBot to the RepRap printers like the Huxley and Mendel, as well as the whiteAnt CNC featured in the Apress book Printing in Plastic. You'll discover how easy it is to find and design 3D models using web-based 3D modeling, and even how to create a 3D model from a 2D image. After learning the basics, this book will walk you through building multi-part models with a steampunk warship project, working with meshes to build your own action heroes, and creating an autonomous robot chassis. Finally, you'll find even more bonus projects to build, including wind-up walkers, faceted vases for the home, and a handful of useful upgrades to modify and improve your 3D printer.

'Now . . . in the Analytical Engine I had devised mechanical means equivalent to memory. ' For the past twenty-five years or so, scientists and engineers have been endeavouring to realize in new technologies the claim made by Charles Babbage in his memoirs over a century ago. The modern computer industry depends to a very large extent on the success of their efforts. In this book we discuss the wide variety of techniques which have been used and are being developed to meet the range of requirements for digital storage systems in computers and other applications. The book has been written as a guide for the designer of any system employing digital techniques, firstly to guide him in his choice of store for differing applications and, secondly, to give him an apprecia tion of the problems which confront the engineer designing storage systems. Technology never stands still and developments in recent years have, of necessity, greatly increased the amount of material included in this second edition. The opportunity has also been taken to reorganize the contents and more emphasis has been given to those developments which have had, or which are likely to have, the greatest effect on computer development. Brief descriptions of obsolete or obsolescent systems have been retained, both as a warn ing to designers of the problems likely to be encountered in develop ment and to demonstrate how changes in technology can give a new impetus to old designs.
