Most widely held works by Carver Mead
Collective electrodynamics quantum foundations of electromagnetism by Carver Mead ( )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book Carver Mead offers a radically new approach to the standard problems of electromagnetic theory. Motivated by the belief that the goal of scientific research should be the simplification and unification of knowledge he describes a new way of doing electrodynamics - collective electrodynamics, that does not rely on Maxwell's equations, but rather uses the quantum nature of matter as its sole basis

Basic limitations in microcircuit fabrication technology by Ivan Edward Sutherland ( Book )
4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The report discusses some high-leverage research areas in microcircuit fabrication, not now receiving government or private support, where relatively small, advanced research efforts may have substantial payoff. Based on the fact that microcircuit fabrication has reached or almost reached limitations in both size and precision, the study focuses on a number of areas where progress can be made, identifying those adequately covered by existing programs and highlighting those where relatively little work is being done. The authors recommend four important research efforts aimed at: (1) making small devices; (2) measuring the limits of dimensional stability of silicon substrates and mask materials; (3) predicting the optimum feature size, die size, and wafer size, given the constraints of the newly evolving technology; (4) understanding the system design implications of very-large-scale integrated circuits. 'The potential for future capability is truly impressive, ' say the authors, who believe that the integrated circuit revolution has run only half its course and that a change in microcircuit complexity of four more orders of magnitude is highly probable
How things really work two inventors on innovation by Gordon Bell ( Visual )

Cochlear hydrodynamics demystified by California Institute of Technology ( Book )
4 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "Wave propagation in the mammalian cochlea (inner ear) is modeled as a unidirectional cascade of simple filters. The transfer functions of the low-order filter stages are completely determined by the wave-number vs. frequency solutions to the dispersion relations that describe the cochlea, which are in turn derived from two-dimensional approximations to the fluid mechanics. Active undamping effects of the outer hair cells are easily included in the analysis and modeling, so that the results can be directly applied in the design of active adaptive cochlear models."

VLSI analogs of neuronal visual processing : a synthesis of form and function by Misha Mahowald ( )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since circuits are essentially physical structures, I advocate the use of analog VLSI as powerful medium of abstraction, suitable for understanding and expressing the function of real neural systems. The working chip elevates the circuit description to a kind of synthetic formalism. The behaving physical circuit provides a formal test of theories of function that can be expressed in the language of circuits."

A Notation for Designing Restoring Logic Circuitry in CMOS by M Rem ( Book )
2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the underlying silicon fabrication technology has become capable of producing chips with transistor counts in excess of 1,000,000, problems associated with correct design are assuming ever greater importance. Exhaustive checking of mask artwork for errors becomes prohibitive. Technologies and design styles which obviate large classes of potential errors are enormously preferable to those that do not. A modular, hierarchical design style can, with proper restriction, confine many types of checks to one level of the hierarchy within each module. A set of such restrictions is given in this paper, together with a mechanism for their enforcement. These restrictions capture a substantial fraction of the design style given in 11]. As feature sizes are scaled below one micron, ratio logic processes like nMOS and I2L become progressively less attractive. Straightforward scaling to smaller sizes results in a linear increase in current per unit chip area. Technological tricks such as high resistivity polysilicon pullup devices or very small injector current can be used to decrease current drain, but the resulting devices become increasingly vulnerable to "soft error problems from alpha particles, etc. Fully restored "static" logic using a complementary process is the natural choice for systems with submicron components. Present bulk CMOS processes have a number of very ugly analog rules associated with the 4-layer nature of the process. As a result, the designer must be aware of details of the technology to an alarming degree. CMOS on an insulating substrate is, on the other hand, a conceptually clean process: it requires no analog rules whatsoever if proper timing conventions are observed. There are recent signs that it may become reliably producible as well
