Extracellular neurotransmitter concentrations vary over a wide range depending on the type of neurotransmitter and location in the brain. Neurotransmitter homeostasis near a synapse is achieved by a balance of several mechanisms including vesicular release from the presynapse, diffusion, uptake by transporters, nonsynaptic production, and regulation of(More)
Neurotransmitter homeostasis in and around a synapse involves complex random processes such as diffusion, molecular binding, and uptake by glial transporters. A three-dimensional stochastic diffusion model of a synapse was developed to provide molecular-level details of neurotransmitter homeostasis not predicted by alternative models based on continuum(More)
According to a report by Frost and Sullivan in 2007, revenues for non-AFIS fingerprint devices in notebook PC's and wireless devices is anticipated to grow from $148.5 million to $1588.0 million by 2014, a compound annual growth rate of 40.3% [1]. The AFIS market has a compound annual growth rate of 15.2% with revenues of $445.0 million in 2007. With the(More)
—Microcontrollers that can provide higher performance while maintaining low power consumption is a key research area. Power aware high performance microcontrollers are critical in embedded system applications. and Xilinx 10.1. We have also given the experimental results for the low power techniques implemented.
Low power VLSI circuit design is a core area for current research activities. Power reduction without compromising the performance is the vital concern for processor design. In this paper, we apply a new clocking scheme as in [1] that can be used to reduce the power consumption in a processor datapath. We have mainly focused on implementing the pipelined(More)
