—Network-on-Chip (NoC) architectures provide a good way of realizing efficient interconnections and largely alleviate the limitations of bus-based solutions. NoC has emerged as a solution to problems exhibited by the shared bus communication approach in System-On-Chip (SoC) implementations including lack of scalability, clock skew, lack of support for(More)
— In this paper, we propose a library for the system level modeling and simulation of the system which includes Dynamically Reconfigurable Architectures(DRAs). The proposed library is an extended SystemC library. Using the proposed library, the designer can model the system specifications including modules for the dynamic generation and elimination and(More)
The in vitro and in vivo antimicrobial activity of primary ammonium ethyl methacrylate homopolymers (AEMPs) was investigated. AEMPs with different degrees of polymerization (DP = 7.7-12) were prepared by reversible addition-fragmentation chain-transfer (RAFT) polymerization. The AEMPs showed higher inhibitory effects against Gram-positive bacteria,(More)
This study reports a synthetic polymer functionalized with catechol groups as dental adhesives. We hypothesize that a catechol-functionalized polymer functions as a dental adhesive for wet dentin surfaces, potentially eliminating the complications associated with saliva contamination. We prepared a random copolymer containing catechol and methoxyethyl(More)
A smart grid test bed with 6.6kV experimental distribution network which includes mega-photovoltaic generation systems, rechargeable batteries and so on has been conducted. In order to demonstrate the system performance of smart grid with this test bed, a new simulation platform has been developed. The simulation platform consists of BTB (Back-To-Back),(More)
