This tutorial is useful today for implementing Digital Phase Locked Loops on embedded processors with DSP capability. The paper teaches the design trade-offs of 2nd order DSP phase-locked loops compared with their analog prototypes.


Respiratory rate tracking has gained more and more interest in the past few years because of its great potential in exploring different pathological conditions of human beings. Conventional approaches usually require dedicated wearable devices, making them intrusive and unfriendly to users. To tackle the issue, many WiFi-based respiration tracking systems have been proposed because of WiFi’s ubiquity, low-cost, and most importantly, contactlessness. However, most


Over the last decade the relative latency of access to shared memory by multicore increased as wire resistance dominated latency and low wire density layout pushed multi-port memories farther away from their ports. Various techniques were deployed to improve average memory access latencies, such as speculative pre-fetching and branch-prediction, often leading to high variance in execution time which is unacceptable in real-time systems. Smart DMAs can be used


High-Throughput JPEG2000 (HTJ2K) is a new addition to the JPEG2000 suite of coding tools; it has been recently approved as Part-15 of the JPEG2000 standard, and the JPH file extension has been designated for it. The HTJ2K employs a new “fast” block coder that can achieve higher encoding and decoding throughput than a conventional JPEG2000 (C-J2K) encoder. The higher throughput is achieved because the HTJ2K codec processes wavelet coefficients in a smaller number of steps than C-J2K.


Sparse code multiple access (SCMA) uses multi-dimensional sparse codewords to transmit user data. The expectation propagation algorithm (EPA) exploiting the sparse property shows linear complexity growth and thus is preferred for multi-user detection. To further reduce the complexity, a convergence-aware based EPA for uplink MIMO SCMA systems is proposed. Techniques including user termination, antenna termination, and codebook reduction are adopted. The user termination must be combined with the iteration constraint to avoid misjudgement.


High-throughput JPEG2000 (HTJ2K), also known as JPEG 2000 Part 15, is the most recent addition to the JPEG2000 suite of coding tools. The file extension JPH has been designated for compressed images employing this new part of the standard. This new part describes a “fast” block coder for the JPEG 2000 format, while retaining most other JPEG2000 features and capabilities intact.
