As semiconductor devices shrink further, the effects of process variation become more and more pronounced. They negatively impact the speed and power consumption of Integrated Circuits (ICs). Traditionally, a worst-case based design methodology is used to compensate for their potential impact. For modern technology this method means an increased...

Zhang, H. (author)
For energy management in wireless sensor networks, only the sensors with most informative measurements are activated to operate. How to select sensors that make good tradeoff between performance and energy consumption is what many researchers are focusing on. Existing solutions assume analog data model, i.e., the data from sensors collected by a...
