—Today's high performance embedded computing applications are posing significant challenges for processing throughout. Traditionally, such applications have been realized on application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and/or digital signal processors (DSP). However, ASICs' advantage in performance and power often could not justify the fast increasing(More)
BACKGROUND AND METHODOLOGY A low ankle-to-brachial index (ABI) is a strong correlate of cardiovascular disease and subsequent mortality. The relationship between ABI and alcohol consumption remains unclear. Data are from the Cardiovascular Risk Survey (CRS), a multiple-ethnic, community-based, cross-sectional study of 14,618 Chinese people (5757 Hans, 4767(More)
State-of-the-art endoscopy systems require electronics allowing for real-time, bidirectional data transfer. Proposed are 2.4-GHz low-power transceiver analog front-end circuits for bidirectional high data rate wireless telemetry in medical endoscopy applications. The prototype integrates a low-IF receiver analog front-end [low noise amplifier (LNA), double(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence and distribution of type 2 diabetes and to determine the status of type 2 diabetes awareness, treatment, and control in Xinjiang, China. Our data came from the Cardiovascular Risk Survey (CRS) study designed to investigate the prevalence and risk factors for cardiovascular diseases in Xinjiang(More)
— A design of low power digital baseband for wireless endoscope capsule is presented. The key design issues involved in this IC are discussed, including implementation of communication protocol, real time image filter and real time JPEG-LS encoder. Power dissipation is lowered through the architectural exploration. The baseband has been implemented in 0.18(More)
This work presents the design and implementation can be stored in the recording device, which is mounted on the of a 2.4GHz low power wireless transceiver analog front-end waist of the patients, and be used by the doctor afterwards, or for the endoscopy capsule system in 0.25um CMOS process. the capsule can be controlled by the computer and the image The(More)
In order to decrease the communication bandwidth and save the transmitting power in the wireless endoscopy capsule, this paper presents a new near-lossless image compression algorithm based on the Bayer format image suitable for hardware design. This algorithm can provide low average compression rate (2.12 bits/pixel) with high image quality (larger than(More)
