—On-chip inductors are critical for enabling portable power-efficient wireless communication systems. Existing on-chip spiral inductors based on conventional planar integrated-circuit fabrication technology suffer from substrate loss and parasitics, and have relatively large footprints. In this paper, we discuss the development of two types of on-chip(More)
—This paper presents the results of the development of a vertical planar coil inductor. The planar coil inductor is first fabricated on silicon substrate and then assembled to the vertical position by using a novel 3-Dimensional bath-scale self-assembly process (Plastic Deformation Magnetic Assembly (PDMA)). Inductors of different dimensions are fabricated(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic postherniorrhaphy groin pain (CPGP) is a debilitating condition, which is often refractory to conservative medical management. To our knowledge, there have been no studies directly comparing landmarked-based and ultrasound-guided approaches in this population. OBJECTIVE To compare the effectiveness of landmark-based and(More)
