A tactile display device that can present tangible relief graphics for visually impaired persons has been developed. The tactile surface consists of a 64 x 64 arrangement of tactorpins with 3 mm interspacing. The tactor-pins are aligned in a hexagonal, rather than a square formation, to assure smooth depiction. The matrix has a total area of 200 mm x 170(More)
Using a high-resolution mapping approach, we identified a candidate gene for ZYMV resistance in cucumber. Our findings should assist the development of high-versatility molecular markers for MAS for ZYMV resistance. Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV) causes significant disease, which leads to fruit yield loss in cucurbit crops. Since ZYMV resistance is(More)
This paper presents a new common-bus architecture for high-speed data transfer with transferring vast quantities of data between modules inside a VLSI chip. In the intrachip data transfer, start addresses of the source and destination modules and the number of data are sent to the target modules at the first step, which is called “address presetting”. After(More)
Lately, Mg alloys have been investigated as a new class of biomaterials owing to their excellent biodegradability and biocompatibility. It has previously been reported that the in vitro compatibility of a Mg alloy containing aluminum and zinc (AZ) alloy with the blood coagulation system is excellent due to Mg2+ ions eluting from the alloy. In this study,(More)
We have proposed that the excellent blood compatibility of poly(2-methoxyethylacrylate (MEA)) is caused by freezing bound water contained in it on the basis of results on platelet activation (Tanaka and Mochizuki, J Biomed Mater Res A 2004; 68:684-695). To clarify the applicability of this mechanism to other indexes for blood compatibility, the relationship(More)
The resistance of random copolymers of BMA and CMB against biofouling was evaluated. The amount of proteins adsorbed onto the CMB copolymers was smaller than that onto other polymers (non-ionic polymers and copolymers of ordinary ionic monomers and BMA) and decreased with an increase in the content of CMB residues. Furthermore, there was a dramatic decrease(More)
A new multiple-valued current-mode (MVCM) integrated circuit based on dynamic source-coupled logic (SCL) is proposed for low-power VLSI applications. The use of a precharge-evaluate logic style makes steady current flow cut off, thereby greatly saving the power dissipation. A combination of SCL and dynamic logic styles makes it possible to reduce the power(More)
