    • Low-Power High-Performance Ternary Content Addressable Memory Circuits 

      Mohan, Nitin (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      Ternary content addressable memories (TCAMs) are hardware-based parallel lookup tables with bit-level masking capability. They are attractive for applications such as packet forwarding and classification in network ...
    • Low-Power Soft-Error-Robust Embedded SRAM 

      Shah, Jaspal Singh (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-08)
      Soft errors are radiation-induced ionization events (induced by energetic particles like alpha particles, cosmic neutron, etc.) that cause transient errors in integrated circuits. The circuit can always recover from such ...
    • Low-Power, Low-Voltage SRAM Circuits Design For Nanometric CMOS Technologies 

      Shakir, Tahseen (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-30)
      Embedded SRAM memory is a vital component in modern SoCs. More than 80% of the System-on-Chip (SoC) die area is often occupied by SRAM arrays. As such, system reliability and yield is largely governed by the SRAM's performance ...
    • Low-temperature characterization of dielectric loss at microwave frequencies in aluminum oxide 

      Otto, Martin (University of Waterloo, 2015-04-09)
      Superconducting quantum devices have gained increasing interest over the past 15 years because of their role as promising candidates for implementing a large-scale quantum computer and as ultra-sensitive detectors. ...
    • Lower Bounds and Derandomization 

      Gardezi, Jaffer (University of Waterloo, 2008-08-26)
