The effects of temperature on the kinetic parameters kcat and Km, for three isolates of the highly conserved monomeric enzyme 3-phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK), were investigated in detail using a rapid automated kinetics apparatus. PGK was purified from the thermophilic bacterium Thermoanaerobacter sp. Rt8.G4 (optimum growth temperature 68 degrees C), the(More)
A counterfeit version of the Ethicon Prolene polypropylene mesh was distributed to hospitals and clinics and unintentionally implanted into patients undergoing tension-free hernia repair. On December 19, 2003, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health web notification indicating that the counterfeit mesh was not sterile or safe to use.(More)
—Embedded systems require low overhead security approaches to ensure that they are protected from attacks. In this paper, we propose a hardware-based approach to secure the operation of an embedded processor instruction-by-instruction, where deviations from expected program behavior are detected within the execution of an instruction. These security-enabled(More)
—We present a customizable soft architecture which allows for the execution of GPGPU code on an FPGA without the need to recompile the design. Issues related to scaling the overlay architecture to multiple GPGPU multiprocessors are considered along with application-class architectural optimizations. The overlay architecture is optimized for FPGA(More)
In this paper, we describe the use of magnetic RAM (MRAM) in coarse-grained reconfigurable arrays (CGRAs) as a configuration cache to allow for bulk low-energy storage and rapid device reconfiguration. If an energy-saving configuration update for an application is needed, a new configuration can be quickly swapped into compute blocks and interconnect(More)
