— The increasing usage of Residual Number System (RNS) in signal processing applications demands the development of new and more adaptable RNS moduli sets and arithmetic units. In this paper, a new reverse converter for moduli set {2 2n+1 −1,2 2n ,2 n − 1}, which can offers large dynamic range, is presented. We improved a previously introduced Mixed-Radix(More)
The availability of rich …rm-level data sets has recently led researchers to uncover new evidence on the e¤ects of trade liberalization. First, trade openness forces the least productive …rms to exit the market. Secondly, it induces surviving …rms to increase their innovation e¤orts and thirdly, it increases the degree of product market competition. In this(More)

They include the broad and complex area, from damage control to liver resection. MATERIAL AND METHOD This is a retrospective study of 121 trauma patients with hepatic trauma(More)
We present a methodology for power estimation of non-fractional divider cores implemented in FPGAs. The methodology takes into account the divider structure and the signal statistics at the inputs: mean, variance, and autocorrelation. An analytical model is used for switching activity computation. The strong data dependency observed at the inputs of the(More)
