39 A global high-resolution (~ 40km) atmospheric general circulation model (ECHAM5 40 T319) is used to investigate the change of tropical cyclone frequency in the North 41 Pacific under global warming. A time slice method is used in which sea surface 42 temperature fields derived from a lower-resolution coupled model run under the 20C3M 43 (in which(More)
—This paper proposes a non-isolated soft-switching bidirectional DC-DC converter suitable for high step-up and step-down applications. The proposed converter can achieve ZVS turn on of all switches and ZCS turn off of some switches in both CCM boost and buck operations. An optimized switching strategy is presented to minimize switch current rating and(More)
Active-matrix organic LED (AMOLED) is one of the most promising contenders for next-generation displays. However, the V T-shift issue in thin-film transistors (TFT) has to be addressed to enable wide deployment [1]. Voltage programming and current programming are well-known V T-shift-compensation techniques for analog driving. However, they all need more(More)
As integrated circuit fabrication techniques advance, a complex system can be integrated on a single chip: namely, a system-on-a-chip (SOC). A SOC consists of many intellectual property (IP) building blocks, including analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs) which should provide certain built-in self-test (BIST) scheme to(More)
