Falling is an important problem in the health maintenance of people above middle age. Portable accelerometer systems have been designed to detect falls. However, false alarms induced by some dynamic motions, such as walking and jumping, are difficult to avoid. Acceleration cross-product (AC)-related methods are proposed and examined by this study to seek(More)
Utilizing multibit flip-flops (MBFFs) is one of the most effective power optimization techniques in modern nanometer integrated circuit design. Most of the previous works apply MBFFs without doing placement refinement of combinational logic cells. Such problem formulation may result in less power reduction due to tight timing constraints with fixed(More)

As process technologies advance to the subwavelength era, the 1-D design style is regarded as one of the most effective ways to continue scaling down the minimum feature size. To improve the printability of 1-D cell design, it is essential to insert dummy patterns and optimize line-end gap distribution for each layer. This paper presents novel 1-D cell(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o In the fast changing financial circumstances of nowadays, in avoiding the crisis of closing down, financial institutions are concerned about the efficiency and risk strictly in the meantime. Therefore, efficiency and risk management are goals for a financial institution administrator. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is a non-parameter(More)
This paper presents generalization and reduction of the line-series-shunt (LST) calibration technique, including generic parasitic treatments on the series/shunt standards and number reduction of calibration standards, for broadband GaAs and CMOS on-wafer scattering parameter (<i>S</i>-parameter) measurements. The series/shunt standards are modified with(More)
The dynamic changes in higher education observed over the last 20 years have transformed the educational market. The potential value of promoting student satisfaction and loyalty in higher education has become a significant issue. This study investigates the directions and strengths of the relationships among marketing strategies, student satisfaction, and(More)
In this study, we adopt a three-stage approach, DEA method, Frontier regressions, and DEA method to estimate bank efficiency based on information obtained from 29 banks in Taiwan for the period from 2002 to 2004. In the first stage, we employ super SBM (super Slacks-Based Measure) to estimate the scores relating bank efficiency including internal risk. In(More)
