—A differentially excited symmetric inductor that enhances inductor quality () factor on silicon RF ICs is presented. Compared with an equivalent single-ended configuration, experimental data demonstrate that the differential inductor offers a 50% greater factor and a broader range of operating frequencies. Predictions from full-wave simulations and a… (More)
—Photovoltaic (PV) antennas are used as both direct-current power source and radio-frequency radiator or receptor, resulting in a smarter integrated wireless system. Antenna designs and power management schemes for outdoor and indoor environments are proposed and compared. A dipole and a loop antenna based on amorphous-silicon PV cells were designed for… (More)
—Single-grain (SG) thin-film transistors (TFTs) fabricated inside location-controlled silicon grains using the-Czochralski method are benchmarked for analog and RF applications. Each silicon grain is defined by excimer laser recrys-tallization of polysilicon. Thin-film transistors may be fabricated in this manner on silicon or low-cost flexible plastic… (More)
— Low-complexity, low power UWB radios are required for low data rate short-range applications. FM-UWB is a constant-envelope UWB communication system using double FM: digital FSK followed by high modulation index analog FM to create a constant-envelope signal. The system is intended for low data rate (< 250 kbps), short-range (< 10 m) personal area network… (More)
We describe a case of reversible encephalopathy caused by the recently released anticancer drug Ifosfamide. The clinical course, role of EEG in monitoring and predicting encephalopathy, and putative mechanism of neurotoxicity is discussed. Short infusion times and/or prior CNS disease may increase the risk of encephalopathy.
