Solid State Switching Circuits
Switching circuits are significantly different than linear circuits. They are also easier to understand. Before we look at more complex circuits, we will begin the discussion by introducing discrete solid-state switching circuits: those built around BJTs, FETs, and MOSFETs.
Architecture of FPGAs and CPLDs A Tutorial (PDF 41p)
This paper provides a tutorial survey of architectures of commercially available high capacity ﬁeld-programmable devices (FPDs). We ﬁrst deﬁne the relevant terminology in the ﬁeld and then
describe the recent evolution of FPDs.
FPGA technology in detail (PDF 26p)
FPGAs are chips, which are programmed by the customer to perform the desired functionality. The chips may be programmed either
once: Antifuse technology, e.g. devices manufactured by Quicklogic
several times: Flash based, e.g. devices manufactures by Actel dynamically: SRAM based, e.g. devices manufactured by Actel, Altera,Atmel, Cypress, Lucent, Xilinx.
Multiplication in FPGAs
Multiplication is basically a shift add operation. There are, however, many variations on how to do it. Some are more suitable for FPGA use than others. This page is a brief tutorial on multiplication hardware.
INTRODUCTION TO ASICs
ASICs... the website is a project in computer-assisted education for integrated-circuit design.
ASICs... the website grew from a book: Application-Specific Integrated Circuits or ASICs... the book.
ASICs... the website now spans several thousand web pages and occupies several gigabytes of disk space.
The NASA ASIC Guide Assuring ASICS for Space
As ASICs become increasingly common in space electronics, ASIC program managers and project leaders must understand and prepare to deal with a wide range of complex issues. Not only must you track changing technologies, you must also accomplish your primary development tasks on time and within budget.

Fundamentals of Real Time Spectrum Analysis
Engineers and scientists have been looking for innovative new uses
for RF technology ever since the 1860s, when James Clerk Maxwell
mathematically predicted the existence of electromagnetic waves
capable of transporting energy across empty space. Following Heinrich Hertz’s physical demonstration of “radio waves” in 1886,Nikola Tesla, Guglielmo Marconi, and others pioneered ways of manipulating these waves to enable long distance communications.
Oscillators basic tutorial
This tutorial shows how device parameters can effect the
performance of oscillators, including output power, oscillating frequency and probably most important of all –phase noise
Oscillator resonator design tutorial
The first section describes the different resonator types including lumped, coaxial, microstrip and dielectric.
