Increasing circuit delay range due to process variations, temperature and voltage fluctuations and input characterization makes the traditional worst-case fault-avoidance design methodology no longer sustainable. As an alternative, the average-case fault-detection design methodology is generating interest. Among existing solutions, function speculation(More)
Recently, Racetrack Memory (RM) has attracted more and more attention of memory researchers because it has advantages of ultra-high storage density, fast access speed, and non-volatility. Prior research has demonstrated that RM has potential to replace SRAM for large capacity on-chip memory design. At the same time, it also addressed that the design space(More)
It has been reported that ethanol contributes to neuronal damage. However, the mechanisms mediating the actions of ethanol on neurons remain elusive. The present study was designed to test whether ethanol directly induced HMGB1 release and to explore the cellular and molecular mechanism mediating its action. It was found that ethanol increased significant(More)
Real-world environments are complex, unstructured, and often fragile. Soft robotics offers a solution for robots to safely interact with the environment and human coworkers, but suffers from a host of challenges in sensing and control of continuously deformable bodies. To overcome these challenges, this article considers a modular soft robotic architecture(More)
This work presents a low-power high-speed systemon-chip (SoC) for wireless body area networks (WBANs). The SoC is fully integrated with a 10 Mb/s on-off keying (OOK) RF transceiver, digital processing units, an 8051 micro-controlled unit (MCU), a successive approximation (SAR) ADC, and etc. The receiver adopts envelop detector (ED) based structure to(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the safety and efficiency of the conversion therapy: chemotherapy plus anti-epidermal growth factor Receptor (EGFR) or anti-vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) with different rat sarcoma (RAS) status in patients with potentially resectable colorectal liver metastases (CRLM). METHODS(More)
Prenatal ethanol exposure can cause extensive apoptotic neurodegeneration throughout the developing central nervous system (CNS), which results in cognitive deficits and memory decline. However, the underlying mechanisms need further study. Single-minded 2 (Sim2), a transcriptional repressor, is reportedly involved in diseases that impair learning and(More)
