Clemens J. Setz unternimmt in seiner Rede einen Ausflug in die Gefilde des Wrestlings. Nicht weil die Tage der deutschsprachigen Literatur von außen vielleicht aussehen "wie ein wrestlingartiges Ereignis, ein Kampf nicht Gut vs. Böse, sondern Gut vs. Schlecht, ein Royal Rumble sozusagen, bei dem die Konkurrenten nach und nach aus dem Ring geworfen werden, bis am Ende einer siegreich übrig bleibt". Nein, das wäre "ein unvollständiges, falsches Bild."Vielmehr geht es ihm um Fiktionen, ums Erzählen - "Der Kampf des Guten gegen das Böse ist die ewige Erzählung des Wrestling, ganz ähnlich wie in der Weltliteratur, und Kayfabe ist der Klebstoff, der alles im Innersten zusammenhält." - und um die Tücken, die die Verwechslung von Fiktion und Wirklichkeit und das (Fest-)Schreiben von Rollen bereithalten."Kayfabe" ist die Vereinbarung zwischen Wrestlern und ihren Promotern, nicht aus den Rollen zu fallen, die ihnen "von kompetenter Schreiberhand" in Storylines zugewiesen wurden: Der gute Wrestler und der böse Wrestler haben nicht nur während der Kämpfe ihre schauspielerischen Missionen zu erfüllen: "Das Prinzip Kayfabe wird in den großen Wrestlingverbänden zum Teil so dogmatisch umgesetzt, dass viele Profiwrestler in ihrem privaten Leben die vom Management über sie verhängte Persona wie selbstverständlich weiterspielen und sogar ausbauen. Sie vergessen nach und nach ihre Taufnamen und denken und sprechen über sich nur noch mit ihrem stage name, ähnlich ihrem großen Vorfahren aus alter Zeit, dem Don Quijote de la Mancha, der ja eigentlich der Señor Alonso Quijano war."Clemens J. Setz bringt einige Beispiele "für die oft verblüffende Machtübernahme von Kayfabe im realen Leben eines Menschen", darunter solche aus Literatur, Sport und Film, aber auch ein Rückblick (Fiktion oder Wirklichkeit?) auf seine eigenen jungen Jahre und ein Video mit H. C. Strache, das mittlerweile durch ein auf Ibiza gedrehtes getoppt und von der Wirklichkeit eingeholt wurde.Kayfabe wird für den Autor letztlich "zu einem unvermeidlichen und essentiellen Werkzeug der Weltwahrnehmung" - oder zu einem Instrument der Analyse von Storylines, die allüberall von Traditionen, Firmen, Marketing-Agenturen oder der Politik verfasst werden und Blüten der Selbstverwechslung treiben, bis so mancher mitunter nicht mehr recht weiß, wer ihn eigentlich schreibt.
High-Speed DSP and Analog System Design is based on the author’s over 25 years of experience in high-speed DSP and computer systems and courses in both digital and analog systems design at Rice University. It provides hands-on, practical advice for working engineers, including:• Tips on cost-efficient design and system simulation that minimize late-stage redesign costs and product shipment delays • Emphasis on good high-speed and analog design practices that minimize both component and system noise and ensure system design success.• Guidelines to be used throughout the design process to reduce noise and radiation and to avoid common pitfalls while improve quality and reliability.• Hand-on design examples focusing on audio, video, analog filters, DDR memory, and power supplies.The inclusion of analog systems and related issues cannot be found in other high-speed design books.“This book is an essential resource for all engineers either interested in or working on system designs. It was created by a recognized system design expert who not only teaches these principles daily but who brings years of hands on design expertise as the creator of some of the personal computer industries’ most differentiated audio solutions” —Jim Ganthier, Vice President of Marketing and Solutions, Industry Standard Servers- Hewlett-Packard “This book helps designers by highlighting the pitfalls of high-speed systems design and providing solutions that improve the probability of success. Investing a small amount of time in the use of low-noise and low-radiation design methods from the very beginning of the development cycle will generate a high payoff by minimizing late-stage redesign costs and delays in the product ship date. To improve the probability of design success, applying the rules outlined in this book is a must-do.”—Gene Frantz, Principle Fellow, Texas Instruments Incorporated.High-Speed DSP and Analog System Design is appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and professionals in signal processing and system design.
