BACKGROUND Access to medical records on the Internet has been reported to be acceptable and popular with patients, although most published evaluations have been of primary care or office-based practice. We tested the feasibility and acceptability of making unscreened results and data from a complex chronic disease pathway (renal medicine) available to(More)

Testing printed circuit boards continues to be an issue, especially for evolving and emerging test technologies like boundary scan (IEEE 1149.1/JTAG). This paper discusses a method for validating the testability of a PCB with JTAG before the first PCB prototype is built. It describes a tool that helps to align the objectives of both design and test in a(More)
