BMD is a heritable trait and risk indicator for osteoporosis. In this study, we used a genome-wide haplotype association mapping (HAM) approach to identify a haplotype block within Cer1 that partitions inbred mice strains into high and low BMD groups. A cohort of 1083 high and low BMD human subjects were studied, and a nonsynonymous SNP (rs3747532) in human(More)
We present a description of a 1.5 mm long, vertically aligned carbon nanotube array (VANTA) on a thermopile and separately on a pyroelectric detector. Three VANTA samples, having average lengths of 40 μm, 150 μm, and 1.5 mm were evaluated with respect to reflectance at a laser wavelength of 394 μm(760 GHz), and we found that the reflectance decreases(More)

The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to explore older computer users’ constraints at various age stages. We investigated perceived barriers experienced by older adults in the use(More)
As we move forward to newer silicon technologies that requiring MCM dual pad leadframe design and packaging solutions with tighter process margins, it is becoming imperative to resolve ppm wire sweep failure which is critical in transfer molding process as excessive results in shorting of wires, current leakage and electrical failure. Wire sweep has been(More)
This paper presents TI development of high reliability molding compound material for power enhancement packages with PPF LDF. The mold gate remains due to good molding compound high adhesion and low flexural strength/Modulus are observed in several packages during mass production run. Correlations of adhesion and modulus change with Respect to its fracture(More)
Acknowledgments We would like to thank several individuals for their time and help in carrying out this work. From the " client " , the US General Services Administration (GSA), all helped us with their time and energy for this project. The utility, Pacific, Gas & Electric Company, oversaw the retrofit and data collection, Steve Blanc being the prime mover(More)
Delamination on the interface between mold compound to die, die paddle and inner leads study has been on-going for quite some time. This is a chronicle defect which will result in electrical continuity failure if delamination penetrates into the interface of mold compound to die surface and mold compound to inner leads e.g., delamination on inner leads or(More)
Across a diverse assortment of topics, competitions have been established to motivate and focus scientists and engineers, as well as students interested in such careers, on ambitious objectives. Examples include the famous RoboCup robotic soccer tournaments, the International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP) contests, and the High Performance(More)
