Implementing new operating systems is tedious, costly, and often impractical except for large projects. The Flux OSKit addresses this problem in a novel way by providing clean, well-documented OS components designed to be reused in a wide variety of other environments, rather than defining a new OS structure. The OSKit uses unconventional techniques to(More)

BACKGROUND Prophylactic implantable defibrillators (ICDs) improve survival in patients with impaired ventricular function after myocardial infarction (MI), but it is uncertain whether mortality risk and survival benefit depend on the elapsed time from MI. METHODS AND RESULTS The Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial II examined the impact(More)
Spatiotemporal patterns of gene expression are fundamental to every developmental program. The resulting macroscopic domains have been mainly characterized by their levels of gene products. However, the establishment of such patterns results from differences in the dynamics of microscopic events in individual cells such as transcription. It is unclear how(More)
INTRODUCTION Recently, a medical advisory was issued regarding the Riata and Riata ST silicone endocardial defibrillator leads (St. Jude Medical, Sylmar, CA, USA) addressing the issue of conductor cables extruding in an "inside-out" fashion from the main body of the lead. However, little data exist to guide our management of patients with these leads. (More)
Carbon-nanotube (CNT) field-effect transistors (CNFETs) are promising extensions to silicon CMOS. Simulations show that CNFET inverters fabricated with a perfect CNFET technology have 13 times better energy delay product compared with 32-nm silicon CMOS inverters. The following two fundamental challenges prevent the fabrication of CNFET circuits with the(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to compare the spatial resolution of activation mapping and pacemapping in patients undergoing ablation of idiopathic ventricular tachycardia (VT) arising from the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). A direct comparison of the two techniques has not been undertaken. METHODS AND RESULTS Electroanatomical(More)
Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) are grown using chemical synthesis, and the exact positioning and chirality of CNTs are very difficult to control. As a result, "small-width" Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistors (CNFETs) can have a high probability of containing no semiconducting CNTs, resulting in CNFET failures. Upsizing these vulnerable small-width CNFETs is(More)
Carbon nanotube field-effect transistors (CNFETs) are excellent candidates for building highly energy-efficient electronic systems of the future. Fundamental limitations inherent to carbon nanotubes (CNTs) pose major obstacles to the realization of robust CNFET digital very large-scale integration (VLSI): 1) it is nearly impossible to guarantee perfect(More)
Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistors (CNFETs) show promise as extensions to silicon-CMOS. Ideal CNFET circuits can potentially provide 20X Energy-Delay-Product benefits over silicon-CMOS at the 16 nm technology node. However, several challenges must be overcome before such performance benefits can be experimentally realized. In this paper, we present a(More)
