he information provided on this site, and the thesis report, is essentially as much as I am allowed to publish. Specific details on the algorithm, and the way in which this design operates, remains the property of Lucent Technologies. You may, however, try these contact details for queries related to this project.
Please note that a lot of my work is intellectual property of Bell Labs/Lucent, and as such I cannot make it available. The only resources I can release is what is already available on this site.
- "High Speed Multiplier Architectures" - This project report, from my industrial experience with Bell Labs Australia, is not publically available. .
- Thesis PDF (ASIC Design for Signal Processing)
The document linked here is not the final submission, due to problems with certain Microsoft products destroying the source, but it is close. However, there may be a couple of inaccuracies, including:
- The third grouping in truth table for a 4:2 compressor is wrong, and is correct on the web version.
- The document may seem to imply that multiplying by two Hermitian matrices will generate another Hermitian matrix. This is not true in general, but was the case for this project because the matrices concerned were based on the same original matrix.
he opportunity to be able to complete a final year project with a company like Bell Labs Research / Lucent Technologies has provided highly valuable experience, and has allowed me to extend my knowledge and skills far beyond what is possible within a university environment. I would like to thank everyone who has been involved with allowing this to happen, and who assisted me during the course of my work. In particular:
- Dr Brett Ninness and Dr Steve Weller, of the University of Newcastle, for the time and effort spent in helping to arrange the industrial experience which later led to the work described in this thesis.
- Dr Chris Nicol, formerly of Bell Labs Research Sydney, for allowing me to work with his research team, and especially for the effort in arranging the internship that supported me for the duration of this project.
- Dr Dave Garrett, formerly of Bell Labs Research Sydney, for providing readily available guidance and encouragement, as my supervisor for this work.
- Everyone from the old Bell Labs Research at Lucent Technologies in North Ryde, Sydney. Almost everyone provided some sort of assistance along the way, and all have contributed to the great work environment that greatly assisted with working on this project.
