On-chip source-synchronous serial communication has many advantages over multi-bit parallel communication in the aspects of skew, crosstalk area cost, wiring difficulty, and clock synchronization. However, the serial wire tends to dissipate more energy than parallel bus due to the bit multiplexing. We propose a coding method to reduce the transmission(More)
The mercury biosorption onto non-living protonated biomass of Ulva lactuca, as an alternative method for mercury removal from aqueous solutions, was investigated. Batch equilibrium tests showed that at pH 3.5, 5.5 and 7 the maxima of mercury uptake values, according to Langmuir adsorption isotherm, were 27.24, 84.74 and 149.25 mg/g, respectively. The(More)
—This paper presents a 372ps 64-bit adder using Fast Pull-up Logic (FPL) in 0.18 µm CMOS technology. Fast Pull-up Logic is devised and applied to decrease pull-up time which is critical in domino-static adder. The implemented adder measures the worst case delay of 372ps. The adder has a modified tree architecture using Load Distribution Method and has 6(More)
A robust and complex inflammatory cascade is known to be a prominent component of secondary injury following spinal cord injury (SCI). Specifically, the concept of trauma-induced autoimmunity has linked the lymphocyte population with neural tissue injury and neurologic deficit. FTY720, a sphingosine receptor modulator that sequesters lymphocytes in(More)
We describe the structural and functional properties of three-dimensional (3D) nerve guides fabricated from poly-ε-caprolactone (PCL) using the air gap electrospinning process. This process makes it possible to deposit nano-to-micron diameter fibers into linear bundles that are aligned in parallel with the long axis of a cylindrical construct. By varying(More)
— Increasing complexity of a system-on-chip design demands efficient on-chip interconnection architecture such as on-chip network to overcome limitations of bus architecture. In this brief, we propose a packet-switched on-chip interconnection network architecture, through which multiple processing units of different clock frequencies can communicate with(More)
We demonstrate novel all-back-contact Si nanohole solar cells via the simple direct deposition of molybdenum oxide (MoOx) and lithium fluoride (LiF) thin films as dopant-free and selective carrier contacts (SCCs). This approach is in contrast to conventionally used high-temperature thermal doping processes, which require multistep patterning processes to(More)
