A major limiting factor for high productivity of maize (Zea mays L.) in dense planting is light penetration through the canopy. Plant architecture with a narrower leaf angle (LA) and an optimum leaf orientation value (LOV) is desirable to increase light capture for photosynthesis and production per unit area. However, the genetic control of the plant(More)
This paper presents circuit techniques to improve write and read capability for dual-port SRAM design fabricated in a 45nm low-power process. The write capability is enhanced by negative write biasing without any reduction in the cell current for the other port. The result shows 12% better improvement with just 1.9% area overhead. This technique has been(More)
Bone pain and spinal axial deformity are major concerns in aged patients suffering from osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (VCF). Pain can be relieved by vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty procedures, in which the compressed vertebral body is filled with substitutes. We randomly assigned 100 patients with osteoporotic compression fracture at the(More)
For the first time, we present a state-of-the-art energy-efficient 16nm technology integrated with FinFET transistors, 0.07um<sup>2</sup> high density (HD) SRAM, Cu/low-k interconnect and high density MiM for mobile SoC and computing applications. This technology provides 2X logic density and &gt;35% speed gain or &gt;55% power reduction over our 28nm HK/MG(More)
Photoperiod sensitivity is an important consideration in maize cultivation. Flowering time is affected by photoperiod and sensitivity to it limits the potential for successful exchange of germplasm across different latitudes. For resolving the genetic basis of photoperiod sensitivity in maize, a set of 207 recombinant inbred lines derived from a temperate(More)
This paper presents a thresholding approach by performing fuzzy partition on a two-dimensional (2-D) histogram based on fuzzy relation and maximum fuzzy entropy principle. The experiments with various gray level and color images have demonstrated that the proposed approach outperforms the 2-D nonfuzzy approach and the one dimensional (1-D) fuzzy partition(More)
This paper proposes a distributed architecture for real-time high-resolution underwater ecological observation streaming. The system, based on a three-tier architecture, includes stream receiver unit, stream processor unit, and presentation unit. It is a distributed computing and a loose coupling architecture. Stream receiver unit supports a variety of(More)
