Recent advances in convolutional neural networks have considered model complexity and hardware efficiency to enable deployment onto embedded systems and mobile devices. For example, it is now well-known that the arithmetic operations of deep networks can be encoded down to 8-bit fixed-point without significant deterioration in performance. However, further(More)
Several para-substituted derivatives of 4-phenyl-2-butanone (I) have proved to be powerful attractants for the male melon fly (Dacus clucurbitae). These compounds, unlike anisylacetone, heretofore the best lure, attract even newly emerged flies. The most potent analog is 4-(p-acetoxyphenyl)-2-butanone (II), which also strongly attracts Dacus ochrosiae males.
In our recent epidemiological survey conducted in Mexico for hantavirus infection, we identified three distinct viruses circulating in Mexican wild rodents, namely Montano virus (MTNV), Huitzilac virus (HUIV), and Carrizal virus (CARV). To gain a detailed understanding of hantavirus epidemiology and its associated hosts, 410 rodents were captured at eight(More)
An automatic amplitude control circuit to minimize the phase noise of a LC-VCO is proposed and implemented by a 0.18-/spl mu/m CMOS process. The phase noise lower than -90dBc/Hz at 100kHz offset is achieved over a wide tuning range (from 2.2GHz to 2.8GHz) under large process (/spl Delta/V/sub th/ = /spl plusmn/100mV), temperature (from /spl sim/35/spl deg/C(More)
A variety of hantaviruses are harbored by rodents in North and South America, some of which can cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. To obtain greater evolutionary insight into hantaviruses in the Americas, a total of 211 rodents were captured in the Mexican states of Guerrero and Morelos in 2006. Anti-hantavirus antibodies were detected in 27 of 211 serum(More)
