Since February 2006 I have been compiling and writing a column for IEEE Control Systems Magazine called "25 Years Ago in IEEE Control Systems Magazine"

Unpublished Materials

"Observed Migratory Anomalies of the Great Northern Shoveler." This strange orange bird showed up at my house, and I have done a little research into its habits and environment. (March 2004.)

"All you really need to know about device physics" for students trying to take an analog circuit design course without a device physics prerequisite (like 6.301 without 6.012). (January 2003.)

"The Inverted Pendulum System" is one of the best lecture demos of all time. This explanation shows the root-locus view of the system. (November 2002.)

"Analog-to-Digital Converter Testing" explains specifying, testing, and calculating DC and AC characteristics for A/D converters, with 10 references. (October 2002.)

"High-Speed Analog-to-Digital Converter Survey" comparing high-speed, low resolution A/D converters published between 1995 and 2002, using the "Quantization Energy" figure of merit E_Q, based on power P, effective number of bits B, and effective resolution bandwidth F_BW, with 35 references. (October 2002.)

"Survey of Noise Sources in Bulk CMOS" including flicker (1/f) noise (McWhorter and Hooge models), thermal noise, shot noise, generations/recombination noise, and popcorn noise, with 31 references, mostly historical. (October 2002.)

"A High-Speed, Low-Power Analog-to-Digital Converter in Fully Depleted Silicon-on-Insulator Technology." Ph.D Thesis, MIT, August 2002. [abstract]
