In order to automate routine fecal examination for parasitic diseases, we propose in this study a computer processing algorithm using digital image processing techniques and an artificial neural network (ANN) classifier. The morphometric characteristics of eggs of human parasites in fecal specimens were extracted from microscopic images through digital(More)
A computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) algorithm identifying breast nodule malignancy using multiple ultrasonography (US) features and artificial neural network (ANN) classifier was developed from a database of 584 histologically confirmed cases containing 300 benign and 284 malignant breast nodules. The features determining whether a breast nodule is benign or(More)
As the number of integrated IP cores in the current System-on-Chips (SoCs) keeps increasing, communication requirements among cores can not be sufficiently satisfied using either traditional or multi-layer bus architectures because of their poor scalability and bandwidth limitation on a single bus. While new interconnection techniques have been explored to(More)
Recently Network-on-Chip (NoC) technique has been proposed as a promising solution for on-chip interconnection network. However , different interface specification of integrated components raises a considerable difficulty for adopting NoC techniques. In this paper, we present a generic architecture for network interface (NI) and associated wrappers for a(More)
The computational performance of Network-on-Chip (NoC) and Multi-Processor System-on-Chip (MPSoC) for implementing cryptographic block ciphers can be improved by exploiting parallel and pipeline execution. In this paper, we present a parallel and pipeline processing method for block cipher algorithms: Data Encryption Standard (DES), Triple-DES Algorithm(More)
WaveSync is a low-latency focused, network-on-chip architecture for globally-asynchronous locally-synchronous (GALS) designs. WaveSync facilitates low-latency communication leveraging the source-synchronous clock sent with the data, to time components in the downstream routers data-path to reduce the number of synchronizations needed. WaveSync accomplishes(More)
Bicycles are known to be rich source of kinetic energy, some of which is available for harvesting during speedy and balanced maneuvers by the user. A conventional dynamo attached to the rim can generate a large amount of output power at an expense of extra energy input from the user. However, when applying energy conversion technology to human powered(More)
BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis (AD) is characterized by itching and eczema-like skin lesions, and its symptoms alleviate with age. Recently, the prevalence of AD has increased among adolescents and adults. The increasing prevalence of AD seems to be related to westernized lifestyles and dietary patterns. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the(More)
