—A 1 Tb/s 3 W inter-chip transceiver transmits clock and data by inductive coupling at a clock rate of 1 GHz and data rate of 1 Gb/s per channel. 1024 data transceivers are arranged with a pitch of 30 m in a layout area of 1 mm 2. The total layout area including 16 clock transceivers is 2 mm 2 in 0.18 m CMOS and the chip thickness is reduced to 10 m.(More)
Motivated by the high level of strength and toughness of spider silk and its multifunctional nature, this paper reports on the engineering properties of individual fibers from Nephila Clavipes spider drag line under uniaxial tension, transverse compression and torsional deformation. The tensile properties were compared to the Argiope Aurentia spider silk(More)
Cationic peptides termed protein transduction domains (PTDs) have been shown to cross biological membranes efficiently. However, proteins transduced by PTDs become entrapped within the endosomal vesicles and are not delivered into organelles. We have developed a novel protein delivery system to enhance the proton sponge effect, which results in rupture of(More)
This paper discusses a daisy chain of current-drive transmitters in inductive-coupling CMOS links. Current is reused by multiple transmitters. 8 transceivers are arranged with a pitch of 20µm in 0.18µm CMOS. Transmit power is saved by 35% without sacrificing data rate (1Gb/s/ch) and BER (<10-12) by having 4 transmitters daisy chained. Introduction A 1Tb/s(More)
HIV disease became a manageable chronic disease since combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) was introduced as the standard treatment regimen. However, the emergence of drug-resistant viruses is a major problem associated with cART. A phenotypic drug susceptibility test using a lentiviral vector was established and applied to evaluate new protease(More)
