We describe a system designed to be used in an industrial setting for the scheduling of employees in a Contact Centre. The demand for the employees' services is driven by an estimated forecast for each period of operation, currently set with a duration of 15 minutes. The employees are drawn preferentially from a homogeneous pool. The constraints are set by(More)
Error control codes have become a vital part of modern digital wireless systems, enabling reliable transmission to be achieved over noisy and fading channels. Over the past decade, turbo codes have been widely considered to be the most powerful error control code of practical importance. In the same timescale , mixed voice/data networks have advanced(More)
+t Abstract This paper presents for the first time the design, implementation, measurements, reliability data and integration of multiple RF components such as filters, baluns, diplexers, and a combination of the above on Liquid Crystalline Polymer (LCP) based substrates for communication standards such as 802.11 a/b/g, LMDWMMDS, sa1,ellitddigital TV, UWB,(More)
Baluns operating at multiple frequency bands can result in a reduction in the size of multiband RF front-ends. This paper presents novel multiband balun topologies, using both distributed as well as lumped components. Using LCP packaging technology, baluns operating simultaneously at the 930 and 2000 MHz frequency bands have been fabricated. Measurements(More)
—This paper presents the design and characterization of a negative resistance type 1.9-GHz oscillator using high quality factor (Q) embedded lumped-element LC passives in an organic-based substrate with liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) dielectric material. A design strategy using analytical models is implemented to determine the value of the base inductance(More)
Cytochrome P450 2C9 (CYP2C9) is crucial in excretion of commonly prescribed drugs. However, changes in metabolic activity caused by CYP2C9 polymorphisms inevitably result in adverse drug effects. CYP2C9*2 and *3 are prevalent in Caucasian populations whereas CYP2C9*13 is remarkable in Asian populations. Single amino acid substitutions caused by these(More)
This paper considers the problem of model selection within the context of finite element model updating. Given that a number of FEM updating models, with different updating parameters, can be designed, this paper proposes using the Bayesian evidence statistic to assess the probability of each updating model. This makes it possible then to evaluate the need(More)
The Packaging Research Center has been developing next generation system-on-a-package (SOP) technology with digital, RF, and optical system integration on a single package. SOP aims to utilize the best of on-chip SOC integration and package integration to achieve highest system performance at the lowest cost. The microminiaturized multifunctional SOP(More)
