The inverse discrete cosine transformation (IDCT) is used in a variety of decoders (e.g. MPEG). On one hand, highly optimized algorithms that are characterized by an irregular structure and a minimum number of operations are known from software implementations. On the other hand, regular structured architectures are often used in hardware realizations. In(More)
Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is the leading cause of gastrointestinal morbidity and mortality in preterm infants. NEC is characterized by an exaggerated inflammatory response to bacterial flora leading to bowel necrosis. Bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) mediates inflammation through TLR4 activation and is a key molecule in the pathogenesis of NEC.(More)
We present a new method of behavioral modeling consisting of separation of synchronization and functionality. In this way incomplete specification and incremental refinement can be performed to reduce the modeling effort in early design stages. Compared to known methods our approach allows early cycle based analysis to select appropriate architectures and(More)
Oxygenation and desaturation reactions are inherently associated with the abstraction of a hydrogen from the fatty acid substrate. Since the first published application in 1965, stereospecific placement of a labeled hydrogen isotope (deuterium or tritium) at the reacting carbons has proven a highly effective strategy for investigating the chemical(More)
