We investigate the effect of network errors on Embedded Zerotree Wavelet (EZW) encoded images and proposemodificationstotheEZWcodertoincreaseerror resilience in bursty packet loss conditions. A hybrid-encoding scheme that uses data interleaving to spread correlated information into independently processed groups and layered encoding to protect significant(More)
Cycle time models perform an <i>a-priori</i> calculation of local signal delays by estimating the lengths of wires connecting different levels of synchronously clocked logic elements. Typically, a signal will have to pass through approximately 15-25 layers of logic during a single clock cycle and it is has been assumed that this number is sufficiently large(More)
The use of alternative fuels for the mitigation of ecological impacts by use of diesel has been focus of intensive research. In the present work, algal oils extracted from cultivated biomass of Cladophora sp., Spirogyra sp. and Oedogonium sp. were evaluated for the lipase-mediated synthesis of fatty acid monoalkyl esters (FAME, biodiesel). To optimize the(More)
