Mechanical stretch of cardiac muscle modulates action potential propagation velocity, causing potentially arrhythmogenic conduction slowing. The mechanisms by which stretch alters cardiac conduction remain unknown, but previous studies suggest that stretch can affect the conformation of caveolae in myocytes and other cell types. We tested the hypothesis(More)
We present an algorithm for automating the choice of operator configurations while synthesizing a pipelined design. The chosen configuration set must meet the design constraints of the pipeline (number of stages and stage time) while minimizing the total cost(s) (e.g. area, power) of the design. The configuration algorithm is first used with heuristics to(More)
