Dummy fill is introduced into sparse regions of a VLSI layout to equalize the spatial density of the layout, improving uniformity of chemical-mechanical planarization (CMP). It is now well-known that dummy fill insertion for CMP uniformity changes the back-end flow with respect to layout, parasitic extraction and performance analysis. Of equal import is(More)
PURPOSE To examine the relationship between negative life events, coping styles, and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among adolescent survivors exposed to 2008 Wenchuan Earthquake, China. METHODS A survey was conducted in a sample of 2250 adolescent students from two schools in Dujiangyan District, a seriously damaged area, 20 kilometers(More)
Control of variability and performance in the back end of the VLSI manufacturing line has become extremely difficult with the introduction of new materials such as copper and low-k dielectrics. To improve manufacturability, and in particular to enable more uniform chemical-mechanical planarization (CMP), it is necessary to insert area fill features into(More)
BACKGROUND Human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines derived from poor quality embryos usually have either normal or abnormal karyotypes. However, it is still unclear whether their biological characteristics are similar. METHODS Seven new hESC lines were established using discarded embryos. Five cell lines had normal karyotype, one was with an unbalanced(More)
Control of variability and performance in the back end of the VLSI manufacturing line has become extremely difficult with the introduction of new materials such as copper and low-k dielectrics. Uniformity of chemical-mechanical planarization (CMP) requires the insertion of area fill features into the layout, in order to smoothen the variation of feature(More)
BACKGROUND Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are highlighted as novel cancer biomarkers with great promise. Herein, we focused on summarizing the overall diagnostic performance of lncRNAs for gastric cancer (GC). METHODS Publications fulfilling the search criteria were selected from the online databases. Study quality was assessed according to the Quality(More)
A new Open Artwork System Interchange Standard (OASIS) has been recently proposed for replacing the GDSII format. A primary objective of the new OASIS format is to enhance the compressibility of layout data. We compare the data compression capability of the Full OASIS set of operators with those also present in GDSII, which we refer to as the Restricted(More)
In recent years many common applications have been modified to take advantage of modern cryptography algorithms to enhance security in Internet communications. This paper presents an overview of several widely used secure Internet services, such as remote login, file transfer and domain name resolution applications. Trace data is used to derive measurements(More)
Distant metastasis is the primary failure pattern of nasopharyngeal carcinoma(NPC) in intensity-modulated radiation therapy(IMRT) era. This study was conducted to find the impact of genetic variations in the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase(PI3K)/phosphatase and tensin homologue(PTEN)/v-akt murine thymoma viral oncogene homologue(AKT)/mammalian target of(More)
