This paper describes a new implementation of the ST20-C2 CPU architecture. The design involves an eight-stage pipeline with hardware support to execute up to three instructions in a cycle. Branch prediction is based on a 2-bit predictor scheme with a 1024-entry Branch History Table and a 64 entry Branch Target Buffer and a 4-entry Return Stack. The… (More)
This paper describes the NPSE, a high-performance SRAM-based network packet search engine which has the primary application of supporting IPv4 and IPv6 forwarding. It is based on a high-speed hardware implementation of a tree-based storage and retrieval algorithm, which is memory and power-efficient compared to traditional CAM-based look-up methods.
Two Burkholderia strains 8111 and 8201 were isolated from root nodules of Dalbergia odorifera, an endemic woody legume in southern China. Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene and 16S-23S gene intergenic spacer (ITS) showed that these two bacterial strains were closely related to Burkholderia cepacia and they were also similar in carbon source utilization… (More)
A digital polar transmitter is introduced using 9-b thermometer-coded uniform cells to achieve high linearity for wideband signal. A 960 MHz delay tuner is designed for precise amplitude and phase alignment. An on-chip DC-DC is included for direct battery connection and output power control. Boosted bias improves PA efficiency at low power region. This… (More)
This discussion paper is/has been under review for the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP). Please refer to the corresponding final paper in ACP if available. Abstract The existence and importance of peroxyformic acid (PFA) in the atmosphere has been under controversy. We present here, for the first time, the observation data for PFA from four… (More)
