Advances in the development of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) have made possible the fabrication of cheap and small dimension accelerometers and gyroscopes, which are being used in many applications where the global positioning system (GPS) and the inertial navigation system (INS) integration is carried out, i.e., identifying track defects,(More)

The LLDFT rules used in this work allow to avoid some hard to detect faults or even undetectable faults on a cell library by modifying the cell layout whithout changing their behaviour and achieving a good level of reliability. These rules avoid some open faults or reduce their appearance probability. The main purpose has been to apply that set of LLBFT(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to evaluate the management of community acquired pneumonia (CAP) according to conventional clinical criteria applied in the emergency room as compared to a pneumonia prognosis index (PPI) (Fine et al. NEJM 1997). We also analyzed which factors were associated with the need for inpatient treatment in PPI risk(More)
The huge computational complexities involved with particle filters is known to be one of the major constraint to their widespread use for different real time applications. This paper analyzes the computational complexities of the sampling, importance weight and resampling steps for the two most popular types of particle filters; generic particle filter and(More)
Difference between ZSSQ and ZDDQ testing strategies is presented, discussing the dependency of area overhead and sensing speed on the technology. The current sensor implementation sty(e suitable for cell-based design methodology or semi-custom design style is proposed. Experimental results for each strategy are discussed. Finally, different types of(More)
