Failure analysis (FA) and diagnosis of memory cores plays a key role in system-on-chip (SOC) product development and yield ramp-up. Conventional FA based on bitmaps and the experiences of the FA engineer is time consuming and error prone. The increasing time-to-volume pressure on semiconductor products calls for new development flow that enables the product(More)
It was recently reported that in one of the adult neurogenetic zones, the subventricular zone (SVZ), astrocyte-like cells release glutamate upon intracellular Ca2+ increases. However, the signals that control Ca2+ activity and glutamate release from SVZ astrocytes are not known. Here, we examined whether prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), which induces glutamate(More)
BACKGROUND Objective measurement of airflow obstruction by spirometry is an essential part of the diagnosis of asthma or COPD. During exacerbations, the feasibility and utility of spirometry to confirm the diagnosis of asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are unclear. Addressing these gaps in knowledge may help define the need for(More)
BACKGROUND The report from the Institute of Medicine, To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System in 1999 drew a special attention towards preventable medical errors and patient safety. The American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 and federal criteria of 'Meaningful use' stage 1 mandated e-prescribing to be used by eligible providers in order to(More)
