QoS Support for Voice Packet Transmission over Cognitive Radio Networks
(University of Waterloo, 2010-07-27)
Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs) provide a solution for the spectrum scarcity problem facing the wireless communications community. However, due to the infancy of CRNs, further research is needed before we can truly benefit ...
Physical Layer Approach for Securing RFID Systems
(University of Waterloo, 2013-08-15)
Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) is a contactless, automatic identification wireless technology primarily used for identifying and tracking of objects, goods and humans. RFID is not only limited to identification and ...
Verification of Pipelined Ciphers
(University of Waterloo, 2009-01-29)
The purpose of this thesis is to explore the formal verification technique of completion functions and equivalence checking by verifying two pipelined cryptographic circuits, KASUMI and WG ciphers. Most of current methods ...
To Use the Codebook Information or Not: A Study of the Compress-and-Forward Relay Strategy
(University of Waterloo, 2009-01-21)
The motivation of this thesis is to understand how nodes can cooperate in a particular relay channel, say a relay channel with orthogonal link between relay and destination. We are especially interested in the scenario ...
An Instruction Scratchpad Memory Allocation for the Precision Timed Architecture
(University of Waterloo, 2012-12-18)
This work presents a static instruction allocation scheme for the precision timed architecture’s (PRET) scratchpad memory. Since PRET provides timing instructions to control the temporal execution of programs, the objective ...
Fabrication and Analysis of Bottom Gate Nanocrystalline Silicon Thin Film Transistors
(University of Waterloo, 2008-08-25)
Thin film transistors (TFTs) have brought prominent growth in both variety and utility of large area electronics market over the past few decades. Nanocrystalline silicon (nc-Si:H) TFTs have attracted attention recently, ...
