      Over the last two decades, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the efficiency of conflict-driven clause-learning Boolean satisfiability (CDCL SAT) solvers over industrial problems from a variety of applications such as ...
    • CDM Robust & Low Noise ESD protection circuits 

      Lubana, Sumanjit Singh (University of Waterloo, 2009-01-20)
      In spite of significant progress during last couple of decades, ESD still affects production yields, manufacturing costs, product quality, product reliability and profitability. The objective of an ESD protection circuit ...
    • CDMA Channel Selection Using Switched Capacitor Technique 

      Nejadmalayeri, Amir Hossein (University of Waterloo, 2001)
      CDMA channel selection requires sharp as well as wide-band Filtering. SAW Filters which have been used for this purpose are only available in IF range. In direct conversion receivers this has to be done at low frequencies. ...

    • Channel Allocation for Smooth Video Delivery over Cognitive Radio Networks 

      Li, Sanying (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-30)
      Video applications normally demand stringent quality-of-service (QoS) for the high quality and smooth video playback at the receiver. Since the network is usually shared by multiple applications with diverse QoS requirements, ...
    • Channel Based Relay Attack Detection Protocol 

      Abubaker, Radi (University of Waterloo, 2019-05-23)
      A relay attack is a potentially devastating form of a man-in-the-middle attack, that can circumvent any challenge-response authentication protocol. A relay attack also has no known cryptographic solution. This thesis ...
    • Channel Estimation and Equalization for Cooperative Communication 

      Mheidat, Hakam (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      The revolutionary concept of space-time coding introduced in the last decade has demonstrated that the deployment of multiple antennas at the transmitter allows for simultaneous increase in throughput and reliability because ...
