This paper describes the Altera Stratix II™ logic and routing architecture. This architecture features a novel adaptive logic module (ALM) that is based on a 6-LUT, but can be partitioned into two smaller LUTs to efficiently implement circuits containing a range of LUT sizes that arises in conventional synthesis flows. This provides a performance(More)
This paper describes architectural enhancements in the Stratix-III" and Stratix-IV" FPGA architectures. These architectures feature programmable power management, which allows the power and performance of logic and routing to be varied to minimize total power without any performance loss. This paper describes the technique used for programmable power(More)
Isothermal titration calorimetry, ITC, has been used to determine the thermodynamics (DeltaG, DeltaH, and -TDeltaS) for binding netropsin to a number of DNA constructs. The DNA constructs included: six different 20-22mer hairpin forming sequences and an 8-mer DNA forming a duplex dimer. All DNA constructs had a single -AT-rich netropsin binding with one of(More)
We define an algorithmic paradigm, the stack model, that captures many primal-dual and local-ratio algorithms for approximating covering and packing problems. The stack model is defined syntactically and without any complexity limitations and hence our approximation bounds are independent of the <i>P</i> versus <i>NP</i> question. Using the stack model, we(More)
High-leakage transformers play an important role in power conversion. On-chip, silicon-integrated, and printed-wiring-board-integrated transformers are currently being developed for signal and power applications in high-frequency power supplies. High-power transformers have been developed for the inductive charging of electric-vehicle batteries. These(More)
A kinetic analysis of the stepwise alternating action of beta-glucuronidase and beta-acetylglucosaminidase on oligosaccharides and dextrins derived from hyaluronic acid was undertaken, for better definition of the contribution of this process to hyaluronate catabolism. Production of monosaccharide from larger dextrins by action of either enzyme is(More)
