Montage is a technique in film editing in which a series of short shots are edited into a sequence to condense space, time, and information. The term has been used in various contexts. It was introduced to cinema primarily by Eisenstein, and early Soviet directors used it as a synonym for creative editing. In France the word "montage" simply denotes cutting. The term "montage sequence" has been used primarily by British and American studios, which refers to the common technique as outlined in this article.The montage sequence is usually used to suggest the passage of time, rather than to create symbolic meaning as it does in Soviet montage theory. From the 1930s to the 1950s, montage sequences often combined numerous short shots with special optical effects dance and music. They were usually assembled by someone other than the director or the editor of the movie. Wikipedia.

The CLEANSITE project will develop a novel system and technology for on-site treatment of collected landfill waste water or leachate though a novel and intelligent treatment method, which combines highly innovative electrochemical treatment or advanced oxidation methods with smart sensors and enabling microelectronic technology for optimised process control and design. Due to significant performance and efficiency gains, the innovation suggested will promote a modal shift of leachate and waste water management practises in the EU and add an important and significant contribution to the current Best Available Technique (BAT). The market opportunity for the SME consortium - group of European suppliers of windows and ventilation systems lies in the provision a treatment profile with improved environmental profile. The major innovation and point of market differentiation of the CLEANSITE system will elimination current economic and environmental costs though on site-treatment and leachate management optimisation. The reductions in treatment costs alone are sufficient to render the product very attractive to customers. The envisaged solution, however, is likely to result in a paradigm shift towards much needed innovative solutions, with wider associated societal and economic benefits. The R&D work required to achieve project objectives is centred around technical work packages with regard to system design, electrochemical and advanced oxidation, integrated water management and control enabling technology all of which are integrated in a novel waste water treatment system with wide application potential.

The present invention provides a wideband active balun LNA topology with narrow-band filtering and noise cancelling. The amplifier includes three transconductance stages, a feedback network, and a load. The first and second transconductance stages are connected in parallel to receive the input signal. The differential output of the first transconductance stage is fed back to voltage input through a differential-to-single-end-end feedback network, while the output of the first transconductance, passing through the third transconductance, is added to the output of the second transconductance stage in proper phase. The present invention accomplish both wideband low-noise amplification and narrow-band filtering without inserting interface stages, thereby improving the linearity and noise performance of the whole circuit. Noise cancellation technique is implemented in differential way to ensure the low noise figure. The present invention also achieves single-end to differential conversion with balanced output and superior second order linearity performance.

Current ECM process technology is limited in machining accuracy and process stability. The primary reason for this limitation is that the power supply units, which are at the heart of ECM are traditionally designed for the millisecond pulsed current range. Developing a power supply unit that has the capability of pulsing in the microsecond / nanosecond range, will result in more control of the process and better product, leading to improved uptimes on the shop floor and improved product quality. The SME partners in this project consortium have identified a commercial opportunity for a new generation of ECM that can offer: - Improved process stability and control - Increased accuracy (at a micron level) - Better process uptime and increased efficiency / outputs - Consistently better performing and better quality products - Shorter product development lead time This project will undertake the research and development work necessary to ensure that the SMEs in the consortium can realise this commercial opportunity through the development of a power supply unit (SMPS) that can support the next generation of ECM. The project aims to develop an SMPS that will deliver quicker electrical current pulsing rates in the microsecond / nanosecond range, resulting in an ECM with a machining accuracy better than 1 micron. The project will also develop a demonstrator / prototype that will be used for validating and demonstrating the next generation ECM. Based on research undertaken by CDAMC (in conjunction with SMPS manufacturers and suppliers), it is clear that power units in this performance range are currently not commercially available. The availability of a new generation of SMPS could result in a major step change in ECM capability and help sustain Europes leading position in ECM technology.
