    Title: Design and Simulation of 4-Bit Parallel Adder using Minimum Number of Transistors

    Authors: Subhashis Maitra

    Abstract: Dynamic logic families offer good performance over traditional CMOS logic due to ease of implementation, less propagation delay, and less number of CMOS logic. The drawbacks of dynamic logic families are charge sharing, charge leakage, lack of design automation etc. But these drawbacks can be eliminated using GDI (Gate Diffusion Input) cell. This paper proposes a new design technique of XNOR gate and 4-bit parallel adder using GDI cell which require less number of transistors. The design claims less area, high speed and low power. The simulation results show the novelty of the paper. The simulation is done using DSCH 3.5. A comparative study of the proposed technique has been dealt here with traditional CMOS logic.

    Title: An Area-Efficient Split-Radix FFT Processor Using Radix-4 Butterfly Units

    Authors: Kasula Srujana and G.Ravi Kishore

    Abstract: Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) is one of the urgent tasks in advanced flag preparing region. The number of applications for FFTs continues to grow and is incorporated in various regions such as: communications, signal processing, instrumentation, biomedicalengineering, sonic, acoustics, numerical strategies, and applied mechanics. Split radix Fast Fourier Transform (SRFFT) approximates the base number of augmentations by hypothesis among all the FFT calculations; in this way SRFFT is a decent possibility for the execution of a low power FFT processor. In this work, we plan to actualize a novel low power Split-Radix FFT processor utilizing shared-memory design and stretch out this work to a parallel structure dependent on FPGA. We began by planning another radix-2 butterfly unit utilizing clock gating way to deal with square superfluous exchanging action in the multiplier. Contrasted with existing SRFFT processors which depend on the "L" formed butterfly, our execution improves the location process for FFT information. Besides, in light of the fact that the quantity of augmentations required by SRFFT calculation fundamentally diminishes as the FFT measure expands, it is sensible to expect the proposed engineering will spare more power with regards to bigger purposes of FFT.

    Authors: Daniel A, Naveena J, Indira S, Ashok Kumar K and Ramesh A P

    Abstract: Electronic voting refers to voting using electronic means to either aid or take care of the chores of casting and counting votes.This project aims to present a new voting system employing biometrics in order to avoid rigging and to enhance the accuracy and speed of the process. This system uses the fingerprint sensor to scan thumb of the voter's in order to provide high performance with high security to the voting counter also as we using internet of thing i.e. (IoT)to make the voting system more practical. As a pre-poll procedure, a database consisting of the thumb impressions of all the eligible voters in a constituency is created. During elections, the thumb impression of a voter is entered as input to the system. This is then compared with the available records in the database. If the particular pattern matches with anyone in the available record, access to cast a vote is granted. But in case the pattern doesn?t match with the records of the database or in case of repetition, access to cast a vote is denied or the vote gets rejected. Also, the police station nearby to the election poll booth is informed about the identity of the imposter. All the voting machines are connected in a network, through which data transfer takes place to the main host. The result is instantaneous and counting is done finally at the main host itself. The overall cost for conducting elections gets reduced and so does the maintenance cost of the systems. This system used to display the data-base of the user (voter). After receiving the instruction from the polling officer, also the voter can use the touch screen to poll his/her vote. On that touch screen the name and symbol of the respected candidate is displayed. The touch screen is connected to the client system and client systems are connected to the server. The entire voting counter result is updated in the server to protect from hacker's we are using encryption and decryption method.

    Title: Improved Automatic Street Light Control System

    Authors: Miss. Manisha K.Sawant, Miss. Shraddha B.Patil, Miss. Monali S.Patil and Mr.S.V.Phakade

    Abstract: The network of roads is ever increasing with the development of country and so the demand for more street lights. Street lightning consumes considerable amount of power as it is operational almost half of a day. Presently the control of street light system is manual and therefore laborious and error prone. Using automation to control street lights would result in reduced energy consumption which can otherwise be put to good use. It would also reduce work load of the utility personnel responsible for control work. This is not a new proposal and previous work has been done using LDR/IR sensor technology. However such work was not found to be completely foolproof and therefore we have redesigned the concept based on modulated IR in order to make the sensing system more immune to ambient Light/IR noise. In present work we have tried to design an automatic street light control system based on modulated IR sensors to detect moving people/vehicle on the road. The scheme is to switch on lights only in the required regions of road. The details of methodology used, hardware design, software design, practical tests and results are presented.

    Authors: Vandana Pundir and Dr. Anwar Ahmad

    Abstract: There has always been discussion on peak to average power ratio (PAPR) which is a major drawback of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) OFDM systems. A high PAPR OFDM signal always leads to distortion in non-linear devices. These non-linear devices can be High power amplifier (HPA), Analog to digital convertor (ADC) etc. Therefore, a number of PAPR reduction schemes are identified and available in literature. Some of them are Selective Mapping (SLM), Partial Transmit Sequence (PTS), Clipping, Tone Reservation and Tone injection, Coding schemes etc. In this paper, we have discussed about Clipping and Partial transmit sequence (PTS) and their effects on OFDM signal.

    Abstract: A case-based justification (CBR) is one of the techniques of artificial intelligence and is inherent in solving problems. It handles new cases using the previous cases stored in the memory. The CBR is seen in a number of problem solving areas as one of the most powerful techniques to be employed. At the same time, the CBRS becomes less performer due to partial reasoning and it may consume a lot of efforts for revising if the problem is complex. In this paper, integration of Multi-agent-systems (MAS) with the CBR system is studied and this will help improving the capability of the Case based reasoning system in solving problems that uses the abilities of agents such as intelligence, interaction, cooperation and coordination . An architecture is designed that can be used in integrating MAS in CBRS (MAS-CBRS) to resolve complex problems. Two main software tools are used in order to establish how the integration of CBRS and MAS are successful in resolving complex problem of buyer ? seller negotiations in the Purchase system. At the time of solving, it has been established how so many of agents work together with CBR system.

    Abstract: The SR (Set-Reset) flip-flop is one among the simplest circuits which stores 1-bit memory. There are quiet many application of a SR flip-flop. Since memristors can show non-volatile behaviour, it can be used in memory devices. In this paper, SR flip-flop is proposed and analysed under the Cadence Virtuoso environment (Spectre). Also, the passive components are the main construction units of the electronic circuits and without them, the circuits would become unstable or does not function well. But, these components are bulky in nature and difficult to fabricate on a chip. These facts stress the need for a low area or nano-device known as ?Memristor? which can be replaced by the conventional passive components. A 4-bit memristive DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) is constructed using memristors and compared with the conventional 4-bit R-2R DAC.

    Abstract: The Low power IC design uses approximate computing and now a day?s more attention on this. Few accuracy configurable adder (ACA) designs have been developed to accommodate dynamic levels of approximation but these designs require large area overhead because of carry prediction and redundant computing. If error detection & correction circuitry is included larger area gets increased further. In this paper a simple ACA design without redundancy/correction circuitry is proposed and a very simple carry prediction is used. Here 16 bit adder is designed using simple accuracy reconfigurable adder (SARA) and DAR (delay adaptive reconfiguration) with SARA. Further simple CRA, CLA and SARA is used in Wallace multiplier and Dadda multiplier their area and delay are compared. By these multipliers and adders MAC (multiply and accumulate unit) unit is designed. The MAC unit is mostly demanded in DSP applications. The MAC unit further applied in FIR Filter and compared area and delay for Wallace and Dadda multipliers with adders are compared.

    Title: Power Optimization Techniques Targeting FPGA ? A Survey

    Authors: V.Prasanth, Ch.satish, P.Vijay Gopal and B.Prakruthi

    Abstract: Silicon area, testability and performance are the major design constraints to be met during the development of digital circuits. In recent years, power consumption was given more importance compared to other design parameters. Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are highly desirable for implementation of digital system due to their flexibility, programmability and low end product cycle. In this paper, we presented an efficient methodology for dynamic and static power reduction of FPGAs based designs. Significant reduction in power consumption is achieved by handling both circuit design and optimization issues at circuit, logic, architecture and system level. Unfortunately, the advantages of FPGAs are offset in many cases by the high power consumption and area. This paper gives an overview of power optimization techniques to reduce the power consumption without sacrificing much performance or increasingly a large area so that FPGA applications can be increased

    Title: Optimizing the Convolution Operation for Image Processing using Efficient MAC unit

    Authors: Pooja Nayak. N and Dr. Vijay Lakshmi.D

    Abstract: As convolution contributes most activities in picture handling administrators, the convolution influences the performance and execution of a CNN accelerator. Convolution includes multiplication and accumulator tasks with four dimensions of Loop, which results in a vast plan space. Earlier works either utilize constrained Loop improvement strategies, e.g., Loop unrolling, tiling, and Interchange, or just tune a portion of the plan factors after the accelerator architecture and data flow are fixed. Without completely concentrating the convolution Loop advancement before the equipment configuration stage, the subsequent accelerator can scarcely abuse the information reuse and exploit data management effectively. This Project beats these hindrances by quantitatively investigating and advancing the structure goals (e.g., memory access) of the CNN accelerators dependent on different plan factors. Then, Project aims to propose a specific data flow of CNN acceleration to minimize the data communication while maximizing the resource utilization to achieve high performance.

    Abstract: Robotic weed detection and classification has seen increased research of late with its potential for boosting productivity in agriculture. Most of the work focuses on developing robotics for crops, ignoring the weed management problems faced by Rangeland stock farmers. The major obstacle to the widespread uptake of weed control is the robust classification of Weed control Strong classification of weed species in their natural environment. The unparalleled achievements of deep learning make it an ideal candidate for identifying different races in a complex Rangeland environment. Weed control allows for the development of strong classification methods possible. This paper benchmark provides a base for classification performance using deep learning models. These models have achieved high accuracy classification.

    Title: Effect of Multitapered Windows on MFCC for Text Independent Speaker Recognition

    Authors: Suma Paulose and Jinimole C G

    Abstract: Usually in speaker recognition systems,the short-term speech signal spectrum is often represented by the Mel-Frequency Cepstral Coefficients(MFCC).These coefficients are derived via Hamming windowed Discrete Fourier Transform(DFT).Windowing reduces the spectral leakage;the variance of the spectrum estimate will be still high.Multi tapering method is an elegant extension of the windowed DFT,which uses multiple time-domain windows(tapers)with frequency domain averaging.In this paper,we implemented a text independent speaker recognition system with multi tapered MFCC to show the effect of multi tapering.The classification is done using two different schemes namely,Gaussian Mixture Modeling(GMM)and i-vector methods.A comparison in terms of accuracy is performed with the speaker recognition system without multi taper MFCC as well.The accuracy of the recognition system is found to be improved with the multi tapered MFCC.Thus,with this improvement we can say that multi tapers are simple and robust alternative to Hamming window method and are viable method for replacing conventional MFCCs.

    Title: Design of a MIMO antenna using fractal shape monopole for Wifi, WLAN and satellite communication application

    Authors: Sheetal Bukkawar and Vasif Ahmed

    Abstract: Two compact fractal multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) antenna with an improved isolation is proposed here. The MIMO antenna structures proposed here consist of two monopoles which are mirror image of each other. Use of fractal geometry in monopole is used to which results in improvement in effective path length. The antenna proposed here, shows triband characteristics with respect to impedance bandwidth. Proposed MIMO antennas have dimensions of 43 x 47 x 1.6 mm3 with two different stub designs at ground plane. One antenna with simple slots in ground plane and other antenna with H-shaped slot in ground plane is discussed in this paper. These stubs helped to achieve isolation between two monopoles. The results show that both antennas are good candidates for WLAN, Wi-Fi and satellite communication applications.

    Title: Tara Akshar Program: Field Analysis, Impact and Future Potential

    Authors: Prof. (Dr.) Anand Mittal, Divisha Goyal and Arjun Mittal

    Abstract: Tara Akshar (TA) is a program based on information, communication and technology to promote functional literacy among women under National Literacy Mission. In our research study, we wish to evaluate the impacts of Tara Akshar program among women in Utter Pradesh. We intend to use the random assignment of women to receive the program to evaluate it?s effects on literacy and numeracy. In addition, we use novel measures of bargaining power, confidence and cognitive and non-cognitive skills to identify the mechanisms through which female literacy affect household decision-making and children education and health outcomes. Some of our key findings include the dominance of males and in-laws in most households, minimal say about females in joint families, unanimous strong preferences towards male child, negatively stereotyped male-female interaction and the prevalence of purdah system. The impact of Tara Akshar program in enhancing literacy among female is much more relevant as one of the obvious trends is that females who are relatively more educated have a better socioeconomic status leading to a relatively decent standard of living. Their level of happiness seemed to be highly correlated with aspirations for education of their children, their health and a consistent source of income. The author conclude that with proper execution and implementation of Tara Akshar programme to all the villages in the country, its effective impact will not only lead to better education of female which will lead them to take better socio-economic decisions, but also impact the literacy and education outcomes of their next generation which can have a long term positive impact on our country.

    Title: Cross-correlation and Variance based Double Talk Detection for Cancellation of Acoustic Echo

    Authors: Mrs. A. P. Patil , Dr. M. R. Patil

    Abstract: Here, we present decision rules for detection of double talk in acoustic echo cancellation. Double talk occurs when near end talk and far end talk coexist simultaneously and also degrades the voice quality in communication. This detection algorithm is implemented using three different methods so as to obtain the maximum coefficient of cross correlation using far end signal , microphone signal and variance of error signal in first method. In second method the maximum coefficient of cross-correlation using far end signal, error signal and variance of microphone signal is obtained and in third method the maximum coefficient of cross-correlation of microphone signal ,error signal and variance of far end signal is achieved. This detection of double talk is necessary to avoid the divergence of acoustic echo cancellation algorithm. The benefits of this approach are fast convergence rate , less number of computations, and very simple to implement with good echo return loss enhancement.

    Title: Common Characteristics of Transducer, Sensors and its types of applications

    Authors: T.Vaidheewaran

    Abstract: This article proposed to a survey of Transducer, Sensors, types, characteristics and its applications. The transducer and sensor are the physical procedure used in electrical and electronic instruments for measuring the physical quantities. The sensor identifys the signal and modifies it into an electrical signal which is easily measured by the digital devices. The transducer transfers the energy either in the same form or another such as mechanical, electrical energy, light energy, chemical energy, thermal energy, acoustic energy, electromagnetic energy, and so on. The sensor is a mechanism that measures the physical quantity (i.e. Heat, light, sound, etc.) into an easily understandable signal (voltage, current etc.). It gives correct readings after calibration.
