Park, Jung-Yong ; Park, Jae-Sue ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 17, issue 2, 2013, Pages 263~272

Printed electronics creates electrically functional devices by printing on variety of substrates. Printing typically uses common printing equipment or other low-cost equipment suitable for defining patterns on material, such as screen printing, flexography, gravure, offset lithography and inkjet. Compared to conventional manufacturing of microelectronics, printed electronics is characterized by simpler and more cost-effective fabrication of high and low volume products. Now there is huge effort towards printing many other more functional components, from displays to transistors to photovoltaic cells, using the full range of printing technologies - from inkjet to roll to roll analogue print techniques. The market for printed electronics will rise from $1.99 billion in 2010 to $55.10 billion in 2020. In 2030, this industry could be $300 billion - larger than the silicon semiconductor industry - from lighting to displays.

Kim, Girae ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 17, issue 2, 2013, Pages 273~279
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2013.17.2.273
In this paper, a novel split ring resonator is proposed for improvement of phase noise characteristics that is weak point of oscillator using planar type microstrip line resonator, and oscillator for 5.8GHz band is designed using proposed split ring resonator. At the fundamental frequency of 5.8GHz, 7.22dBm output power and -83.5 dBc@100kHz phase noise have been measured for oscillator with split ring resonator. The phase noise characteristics of oscillator is improved about 9.7dB compared to one using the general
/4 microstrip resonator. Because it is possible that varactor diode or lumped capacitor is placed on the gaps of split ring resonator, resonant frequency can be controlled by bias voltage. We can design voltage controlled oscillator using proposed split ring resonator. Thus, due to its simple fabrication process and planar type, it is expected that the technique in this paper can be widely used for low phase noise oscillators for both MIC and MMIC applications.

Jeong, Sangbae ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 17, issue 2, 2013, Pages 280~286
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2013.17.2.280
In this paper, a noise reduction system is proposed for the speech interface in intelligent TV applications. To reduce TV speaker sound which are very serious noises degrading recognition performance, a noise reduction algorithm utilizing the direct TV sound as the reference noise input is implemented. In the proposed algorithm, transfer functions are estimated to compensate for the difference between the direct TV sound and that recorded with the microphone installed on the TV frame. Then, the noise power spectrum in the received signal is calculated to perform Wiener filter-based noise cancellation. Additionally, a postprocessing step is applied to reduce remaining noises. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm shows 88% recognition rate for isolated Korean words at 5 dB input SNR.

Cognitive radio has been recently proposed to dynamically access unused-spectrum. The CR users can share the same frequency band with the primary user without interference to each other. Usually each CR user needs to determine spectrum availability by itself depending only on its local observations. But uncertainty communication environment effects can be mitigated so that the detection probability is improved in a heavily shadowed environment. Soft detection is a primary user detection method of cooperative cognitive radio networks. In our research, we will improve system detection probability by using optimal cooperative node selection algorithm. New algorithm can find optimal number of cooperative sensing nodes for cooperative soft detection by using maximum ratio combining (MRC) method. Through analysis, proposed cooperative node selection algorithm can select optimal node for cooperative sensing according to the system requirement and improve the system detection probability.

Choi, Seung-Kuk ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 17, issue 2, 2013, Pages 294~301

OFDM technique uses multiple sub-carriers for the data transmission. Therefore, bit error rate increases because of inter-carrier interference caused by nonlinear high power amplifier and carrier frequency offset. Wireless OFDM transmission over multi path fading channels is characterized by small transmission gain in multiple sub-carrier frequency interval. Therefore bit error rate increases because of burst errors. Inter-leaver and convolution error control coding are effective for the reduction of this burst error. Pilot symbol is used for the channel estimation in OFDM systems. However, imperfect channel estimates in this systems degrade the performance. The performance of this convolution coding OFDM systems using inter-leaver, gauged by the bit error rate, is analyzed considering the nonlinear high power amplifier, carrier frequency offset and channel estimation error.

This paper have presented the breakdown voltage for double gate(DG) MOSFET. The analytical solution of Poisson`s equation and Fulop`s breakdown condition have been used to analyze for breakdown voltage. The double gate(DG) MOSFET has the advantage to reduce the short channel effects as improving the current controllability of gate. But we need the study for the breakdown voltage of DGMOSFET since the decrease of the breakdown voltage is unavoidable. To approximate with experimental values, we have used the Gaussian function as charge distribution for Poisson`s equation, and the change of breakdown voltage has been observed for device geometry. Since this potential model has been verified in the previous papers, we have used this model to analyze the breakdown voltage. As a result to observe the breakdown voltage, the smaller channel length and the higher doping concentration become, the smaller the breakdown voltage becomes. Also we have observed the change of the breakdown voltage for gate oxide thickness and channel thickness.

Recently, the personal identification technologies using vein pattern of back of the hand, palm, and finger have been developed actively because it has the advantage that the vein blood vessel in the body is impossible to damage, make a replication and forge. However, it is difficult to extract clearly the vein region from captured vein images through common image prcessing based region segmentation method, because of the light scattering and non-uniform internal tissue by skin layer and inside layer skeleton, etc. Especially, it takes a long time for processing time and makes a discontinuity of blood vessel just in a image because it has non-uniform illumination due to use a locally different adaptive threshold for the binarization of acquired finger-vein image. To solve this problem, we propose illumination normalization based fast method for extracting the finger-vein region. The proposed method has advantages compared to the previous methods as follows. Firstly, for remove a non-uniform illumination of the captured vein image, we obtain a illumination component of the captured vein image by using a low-pass filter. Secondly, by extracting the finger-vein path using one time binarization of a single threshold selection, we were able to reduce the processing time. Through experimental results, we confirmed that the accuracy of extracting the finger-vein region was increased and the processing time was shortened than prior methods.

As the technology of the digital information age has developed rapidly, lots of research has been done on the digital image processing techniques, such as the image restoration. However, the SM(Standard Median) filter is a typical method of recovering the image which are corrupted by the impulse noise, this method will also reduce the quality of image by generating an error in the edge region. In this paper, in order to restore the corrupted images in the impulse noise environment, a modified median filter algorithm is proposed, which uses the pixels as the center and takes double mask. By using the double mask, we are succeeded in acquiring the excellent performance on noise-canceling, edge preservation, and also in improving the quality of image.

In this paper, location recognition algorithm is developed to improve the accuracy using improve Trilateration. The location recognition algorithm is first calculate the location refer to the measured signal power. Error can be occurred when measure distance with arranged node in specific location. If the distance data is received from node (receiver, coordinator), Node selected for location calculation is defined through section. If the distance data is received from node (receiver, coordinator), Node selected for location calculation is defined through section. Second, we apply algorithm of section filtering. If there are 4 sections in node, we consider 1 section to 6 location recognition coordinates. A special characteristic drawback of RF is that the actual distance is actually farther than the calculated received distance data. This is error is incurred when the signal strength increases. We reduce the location recognition error by applying an improved algorithm as secondary after filtering primary through section filtering.

To successfully accomplish a bit synchronization, a synchronizer should exploit a preamble pattern. A MFM (modified frequency modulation) flag is uses as a preamble in a PJM (phase jitter modulation) mode RFID standard. In the recent work, a synchronizer for a PJM mode tag was proposed, which is composed of several correlators. In this paper, we present a new bit synchronizer in which a coarse synchronization is done as in the previous work while a fine synchronization is performed via exploiting a violation bit included in the MFM flag. We show that the proposed synchronizer can significantly reduce the overall hardware complexity at the expense of slight burden to a demodulator structure. Through simulation, we also show that its performance is comparable to that of the previous system despite its hardware simplicity.

In the mobile Ad hoc Network(MANET), improving technique for management and control of topology is recognized as an important part of the next generation network. In this paper, we proposed an efficient node life time management of ATICC(Adaptive Time Interval Clustering Control) in Ad-hoc Networks. Ad-hoc Network is a self-configuration network or wireless multi-hop network based on inference topology. This is a method of path routing management node for increasing the network life time through the periodical route alternation. The proposed ATICC algorithm is time interval control technique depended on the use of the battery energy while node management considering the attribute of node and network routing. This can reduce the network traffic of nodes consume energy cost effectively. As a result, it could be improving the network life time by using timing control method in ad-hoc networks.

Mobile Healthcare is a new type of health care services for managing health and life irrespective of time and space by uniting IT and BT. For this service bio-signal measurement using WBAN, and data analysis and monitoring technologies based on mobile devices are essential. Generally, however, mobile application has low compatibility because of the features of mobile platform, we have to redevelop it to support the corresponding platform. In this paper we introduce a Mobile Healthcare System which can function as gateway and monitoring based on hybrid app to create ubiquitous healthcare monitoring system compatible with various mobile devices by overcoming the difference of platforms. The proposed system consists of sensor composition part, monitoring composition part, and server composition part.
