An involvement of calcitonin in the mechanism of pain perception has recently been hypothesized. In order to collect information about the relationship between this hormone and well known analgesic substances such as opioids, we have studied the serum levels of calcitonin in a group of heroin addicts, finding higher average concentrations than in normal(More)
A compact 5 times 6 times 1.4 mm<sup>3</sup> 2.4 GHz wireless LAN front-end module (FEM) capable of supporting multi-radio co-existence up to 2.17 GHz is presented. The FEM features 28 dB gain, low current consumption of 120 mA for 15 dBm output power with &lt; 3% EVM at 54Mbps transmissions, &lt; -170 dBm/Hz noise emission up to 2.17 GHz, &gt;45 dB receive(More)
A highly integrated 5 x 5 x 0.9 mm dual-band wireless LAN front-end module (FEM) is presented. The FEM features 29 dB gain and 19 dBm at 54 Mbps with EVM &lt; 3% and 180 mA for 2.4 to 2.5 GHz. For 4.9 to 5.9 GHz transmission, the FEM delivers 25 dB gain and 17 dBm at 54 Mbps with EVM &lt; 3% and 195 mA. The FEM's receive chains can be realized either with(More)
This paper presents a new bilayer video segmentation algorithm focusing on videoconferencing application. A face tracking algorithm is used to guide a generic Ω-shaped template of the head and shoulders. A region of interest (ROI) is created around the generic template, and an energy function based on edge, color and motion cues is used to define the(More)
A compact 5/spl times/6/spl times/1.4 mm/sup 3/ 2.4 GHz wireless LAN (WLAN) front-end module (FEM) is presented. The FEM features low power consumption of 145 mA for 18 dBm output with 3% EVM at 54 Mbps transmissions, <-170 dBm/Hz noise emission up to 2 GHz, and high out-of-band interference suppression, able to support a multi-radio handset with(More)
