This paper applies shape optimization techniques to automatically design novel geometries for MEMS gyroscopes. By parametrizing spring shapes and implementing eigenfrequency gradients, an algorithm tailors the frequency split between drive and detection modes. It also shifts other modes away from key frequencies, while satisfying manufacturability constraints. This expl...
This paper presents a new method to automatically design approximate arithmetic operators for FPGAs. It uses mathematical programming and statistical analysis of hardware characterization data to explore the design space and find optimized tradeoffs between accuracy, area, and performance.
