For automated layout of one-dimensional MOS gates arrays, a heuristic procedure, determining the optimal ordering of gates to minimize the chip area, is presented.
Automatic layout algorithms, placement and routing, for function blocks of CMOS gate arrays are presented. The placement algorithm assigns transistors to basic cells so as to minimize the number of cells used and to minimize the number of interconnections crossing cut-lines. The former objective is achieved by finding a maximum matching and the latter is… (More)
Groups of Swiss ICR mice were fed 1000 ppm polybrominated biphenyls (FireMaster BP-6) in rodent chow for 4, 8, 11, and 14 days. Control groups were fed standard rodent chow without FireMaster BP-6. Animals were killed at the end of each feeding period and the livers examined by electron microscopy. EM changes noted were progressive increase in size of… (More)
A 56-year-old man who underwent a tooth extraction in the previous year presented with weakness of the right upper extremity. Brain CT and MRI scans showed subcortical hemorrhage in the left frontal lobe. His body temperature was 37.5°C. Blood examination revealed anemia, elevated levels of C-reactive protein, and a positive result for PR3-ANCA.… (More)
