In this paper, an analysis of test time by CBET (which is an acronym for Combination of BIST and External Test) test approach is presented. The analysis validates that CBET test approach can achieve shorter testing time than both external test and BIST in many situations. An efficient test time minimization algorithm for CBET-based LSIs is also proposed. It(More)
This paper presents a task scheduling method for reliable cache architectures (RCAs) of multiprocessor systems. The RCAs dynamically switch their operation modes for reducing the usage of vulnerable SRAMs under real-time constraints. A mixed integer programming model has been built for minimizing vulnerability under real-time constraints. Experimental(More)
BACKGROUND It is not clear whether it is reasonable to use particular drugs for glycemic control in preference to other hypoglycemic agents in terms of the clinical outcome of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). METHODS AND RESULTS Among 2148 patients (2568 lesions) in the FU-Registry, DM patients who(More)
BACKGROUND It is well known that percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in hemodialysis (HD) patients is associated with higher rates of in-stent restenosis and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) compared to that in non-HD patients, even if the target value in cholesterol management is achieved. METHODS To evaluate the factors that are(More)
INTRODUCTION The choice of invasive systemic haemodynamic monitoring in critically ill patients remains controversial as no multicentre comparative clinical data exist. Accordingly, we sought to study and compare the features and outcomes of patients who receive haemodynamic monitoring with either the pulmonary artery catheter (PAC) or pulse contour cardiac(More)
Little is known about the efficacy and safety of intensive lowering of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) with statin/ezetimibe therapy after coronary stent implantation in patients with stable angina. Fifty patients with stable angina were randomly divided into an atorvastatin (10 mg/day) (A) group and an atorvastatin (10 mg/day)/ezetimibe (10(More)
The character projection (CP) is utilized for maskless lithography and is a potential for the future photomask manufacture because the CP can project ICs faster than the point beam projection and the variable-shaped beam (VSB) projection. The drawback of the CP is its lower throughput than that of photomask-based lithography and the amortization cost of CP(More)
Eight patients who had polyostotic fibrous dysplasia were followed up for more than 10 years. One had the Albright syndrome. Two of 3 proximal femoral lesions which were treated before puberty by either curettage and bone grafting or by osteotomy, developed progressive deformity during the growth period. One of 2 proximal femoral lesions treated by(More)
Although the use of drug-eluting stents (DES) has reduced the rate of restenosis, some problems remain regarding the usefulness of DES in small coronary arteries in addition to late thrombosis and a longer duration of dual-antiplatelet therapy. We considered 335 patients with 698 lesions who underwent DES or bare-metal stent (BMS) implantation, and randomly(More)
