I spent the spring semester 2011 in Stanford as a visiting researcher. Working on MMIX, I enjoyed a teriffic support from Donald Kuth, who entrusted the MMIX group at Munich University of Applied Sciences to manage the further development of MMIX. So, starting in September 2011, MMIX got a new home at .

A Generic Virtual Bus for Hardware Simulator Composition

IEEE Design and Test Logo

My most recent Publication,

"A Generic Virtual Bus for Hardware Simulator Composition" ,

together with Axel Böttcher and Martin Hauser will appear in IEEE Design&Test this Fall. Thanks go to my students in the IT-Systems II course as well as the students of Heidi Anlauff's course on Integrated Circuit Cards, who helped testdriving the simulator during the last semesters.

Understanding MP3

More Information about the book, you find on the Understanding MP3 Homepage

Understanding MP3 - Syntax, Semantics, Mathematics, and Algorithms

Amazon Understanding MP3

The book has two main objectives:

To explain the syntax, the semantics, the mathematics, the software, and the purpose that is inherent in an MPEG audio bit stream, and

to provide a highly efficient, general purpose implementation of a decoder, called mp32pcm, that can transform such a bit stream into an ordinary stream of PCM data.
