A high-gain gate-pumped down-conversion mixer at 60 GHz is realized in a standard 90-nm CMOS process. The proposed mixer adopted a Darlington cell and a microstrip-line Lange coupler to yield wide 3-dB bandwidth from 5 to 65 GHz. The measured performance demonstrates a conversion gain (CG) of 6 dB at 4.2-mW power consumption. The maximum CG is 6.5 dB at 36(More)
Disseminated Mycobacterium abscessus Infection and Showerheads, Taiwan To the Editor: Diseases caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) in patients with Sjögren syndrome have rarely been reported (1,2). In addition, showerheads in residential bathrooms as a source of Mycobacterium abscessus–induced disseminated disease have never been reported (3–5). A(More)
This large-scale survey aimed to evaluate frequencies and patterns of Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) used for Sjögren's syndrome (SS) in Taiwan by analyzing the National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD) for cases in which CHM was used as an alternative therapy to Western medicine for improving patients' discomforts. We analyzed cases of SS(More)
In the past decades, the Internet usage has increased dramatically. For the network security, the network packet filtering is an important strategy to identify malicious network packets. However, malicious attacks spread much faster than network administrators can respond. The software-only implementations of filter are unlikely to meet the performance(More)
