Journal of IKEEE, volume 20, issue 2, 2016, Pages 128~135
DOI : 10.7471/ikeee.2016.20.2.128
Smart care surveillance system provides the services to track users automatically by using the nearest CCTV cameras which are capable of monitoring them after the system searches for CCTV cameras around them by using the GPS location information received from them. Because users send their GPS location information with using their smart device when they are in emergency situation or want to be cared for, they may expect quick response of helper in this system. However, in the previous system, the selection time of camera which is capable of monitoring is increased rapidly as the management area is expended because the area management server selects the camera by sorting the distance between all of CCTV cameras and users, and then monitors them whenever they send the location information. In this paper, we propose the method to reduce the selection time of the CCTV cameras for tracking the users by searching only the cameras near to the CCTV cameras used to track them.

Journal of IKEEE, volume 20, issue 2, 2016, Pages 136~142
DOI : 10.7471/ikeee.2016.20.2.136
This paper presents a non-local means (NLM) denoising algorithm based on a new weighting function using a mixed norm. The fidelity of the difference between an anchor patch and the reference patch in the NLM denoising depends on noise level and local activity. This paper introduces a new weighting function based on a mixed norm type of which the order is determined by noise level and local activity of an anchor patch, so that the performance of the NLM denoising can be enhanced. Experimental results demonstrate the objective and subjective capability of the proposed algorithm. In addition, it was verified that the proposed algorithm can be used to improve the performance of the other
norm based non-local means denoising algorithms
A Correcting Method of the GPS Location Information using one CCTV in Smart Care Surveillance System
Park, Eunsung ; Kim, Kiyong ;
Journal of IKEEE, volume 20, issue 2, 2016, Pages 143~151
DOI : 10.7471/ikeee.2016.20.2.143
Smart care surveillance system can take the position information of the user and monitor by controlling neighbor CCTVs using GPS receiver built into smart device. But because the position information contains a significant error, in general smart device, it is necessary to be corrected for precise monitoring. In previous smart care system, this error is corrected by using a plurality of CCTV. But it has disadvantage that two or more CCTVs pointed toward the same point at the same time. In this paper, we propose the method to correct error of the GPS location information by using only one CCTV. With experiment result, we find that the accuracy of GPS location information corrected with only one CCTV is as improved as two CCTVs.

Kang, Suk-In ; Kim, Kyung-Youn ;
Journal of IKEEE, volume 20, issue 2, 2016, Pages 152~162
DOI : 10.7471/ikeee.2016.20.2.152
Electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) is a technique to reconstruct the internal resistivity distribution using the measured voltages on the surface electrodes. ERT inverse problem suffers from ill-posedness nature, so regularization methods are used to mitigate ill-posedness. The reconstruction performance varies depending on the type of regularization method. In this paper, an interacting dual-mode regularization method is proposed with two different regularization methods, L1-norm regularization and total variation (TV) regularization, to achieve robust reconstruction performance. The interacting dual-mode regularization method selects the suitable regularization method and combines the regularization methods based on computed mode probabilities depending on the actual conditions. The proposed method is tested with numerical simulations and the results demonstrate an improved reconstruction performance.

It is important to operate the driving circuit under the optimal condition through precisely sensing the power consumption causing the temperature made mainly by the MOSFET (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor) when a BLDC (Brushless Direct Current) motor operates. In this letter, a Super-junction (SJ) power TMOSFET (trench metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor) with an ultra-low specific on-resistance of
under the same break down voltage of 100 V is designed by using of the SILVACO TCAD 2D device simulator, Atlas, while the specific on-resistance of the traditional power MOSFET has tens of
, which makes the higher power consumption. The SPICE simulation for measuring the power distribution of 25 cells for a chip is carried out, in which a unit cell is a SJ Power TMOSFET with resistor arrays. In addition, the power consumption for each unit cell of SJ Power TMOSFET, considering the number, pattern and position of bonding, is computed and the power distribution for an ANSYS model is obtained, and the SJ Power TMOSFET is designed to make the power of the chip distributed uniformly to guarantee it`s reliability.

In this study, we fabricate a high efficiency heater consisting of the indium tin oxide (ITO) nanoparticle (NP)-paste and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and investigate the effect of PDMS on temperature maintenance of the heater through the comparison with the PDMS-free ITO film heater. Compared to the ITO film heater, the temperature of the PDMS/ITO film heater lasts 1.5 times longer. And the power consumption of the PDMS/ITO film heater is reduced by 35%, owing to the low thermal conductivity of the PDMS layer.

Kim, So-Mang ; OH, Jong-Min ; Koo, Sang-Mo ;
Journal of IKEEE, volume 20, issue 2, 2016, Pages 177~180
DOI : 10.7471/ikeee.2016.20.2.177
The effect of varying thickness of Ag/Ti metal bilayer and annealing time have investigated for controlling self-organized nanoparticles (NPs) on 4H-SiC substrate. In addition, Glass and Si substrate which have different surface energy from SiC were fabricated for analyzing interaction of agglomeration. The results of FE-SEM indicated the different formation behaviors of NPs in various ranges of fabrication condition. The surface energy was measured by using a Contact Angle Analyzer. The formation of network-like NPs was observed on Glass and 4H-SiC, respectively, whereas it was not the case on Si substrates. It has been found that the size of NPs increases with decreasing surface energy, due to particle size-dependent hydrophilic properties of substrates. The different formation behavior was explained by using Young`s equation for the contact angles between the metal and different substrates.

In this work, the merged PiN Schottky(MPS) diodes based silicon carbide(SiC) have been optimized and designed for 1200V diodes by 2D-atlas simulation tool. We investigated the optimized characteristics of SiC MPS diodes such as breakdown voltage and specific on-resistance by varying the doping concentrations of P-Grid/epi-layer and space of P-Grid, which are the most important parameters. The breakdown voltage and specific on-resistance, based on Baliga`s Figure Of Merit (BFOM), have been compared with and the SiC-based MPS diodes show improved BFOMs with low values of specific on-resistance and high breakdown voltage. It has been demonstrated 1,200 V SiC MPS diodes will find useful applications in high voltage energy-efficient devices.

DOI : 10.7471/ikeee.2016.20.2.192
In this paper, we present a nanopower CMOS bandgap voltage reference working in sub-threshold region without resisters and bipolar junction transistors (BJT). Complimentary to absolute temperature (CTAT) voltage generator was realized by using two n-MOSFET pair with body bias circuit to make a sufficient amount of CTAT voltage. Proportional to absolute temperature (PTAT) voltage was generated from differential amplifier by using different aspect ratio of input MOSFET pair. The proposed circuits eliminate the use of resisters and BJTs for the operation in a sub-1V low supply voltage and for small die area. The circuits are implemented in 0.18um standard CMOS process. The simulation results show that the proposed sub-BGR generates a reference voltage of 290mV, obtaining temperature coefficient of 92 ppm/
in -20 to
temperature range. The circuits consume 15.7nW at 0.63V supply.
