Whether for use as the final target or simply a rapid pro-totyping platform, programming systems containing FPGAs is challenging. Some of the difficulty is due to the difference between the models used to program hardware and software, but great effort is also required to coordinate the simultaneous execution of the application running on the microprocessor… (More)
—The emergence of data-intensive problems in areas like computational biology, astronomy, medical imaging, etc. has emphasized the need for fast and efficient very large Fourier Transforms. Recent work has shown that we can compute million-point transforms efficiently provided the data is sparse in the frequency domain. Processing input samples at rates… (More)
Estimated deaths due to snake bites are more than 46,000 annually in India. Ninety-seven percent bites occur in rural areas. Data on snake bites from Jharkhand rural area are sparse. This study describes 6 years profile of snake bite patients from January, 2007 to December, 2012 at Nav Jivan Hospital in Palamu district, Jharkhand.
Intra-articular ganglion cysts of the knee joint are rare and most frequently are an incidental finding on MRI and arthroscopy. Most of the previous studies have reported a single ganglion cyst in the knee. There have been previous reports of more than one cyst in the same knee but not in the same structure within the knee. We are reporting a case of dual… (More)
Leakage power reduction through power gating requires considerable design and verification effort. We present a scheme which uses high-level design description to automatically generate a collection of fine-grain power domains and associated control signals. We also describe a method of collecting the dynamic activity characteristics of a domain, viz.… (More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the hepatoprotective activity of ethanolic and aqueous extract of stems of Leptadenia reticulata (Retz.) Wight. and Arn. in carbon tetrachloride (CCl(4))-induced hepatotoxicity in rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS The toxicant CCl(4) was used to induce hepatotoxicity at a dose of 1.25 ml/kg as 1 : 1 mixture with olive oil. Ethanolic and… (More)
