Recent research results have shown that the traditional structural testing for delay and crosstalk faults may result in over-testing due to the non-trivial number of such faults that are untestable in the functional mode while testable in the test mode. This paper presents a pseudo-functional test methodology that attempts to minimize the over-testing(More)
In this paper, we propose two fault-diagnosis methods for improving multiple-fault diagnosis resolution. The first method, based on the principle of single-fault activation and single-output observation, employs a new circuit transformation technique in conjunction with the use of a special type of diagnostic test pattern, named single-observation(More)
Watershed segmentation has recently become a popular tool for image segmentation. There are two approaches to implementing watershed segmentation: immersion approach and toboggan simulation. Conceptually, the immersion approach can be viewed as an approach that starts from low altitude to high altitude and the toboggan approach as an approach that starts(More)
In this paper, we propose a circuit transformation technique in conjunction with the use of a special diagnostic test pattern, named SO-SLAT pattern, to achieve higher multiple-fault diagnosis resolutions. For a given list of candidate faults, which could be stuck-at, transition, bridging, or other faults, we generate a set of SO-SLAT patterns, each of(More)
In this paper, we develop a segment tree data structure for solving dynamic table lookup problems. The proposed dynamic segment tree (DST) uses all of the distinct end points of ranges as the keys based on a new range end point scheme. The new end point scheme generates fewer end points than the traditional end point scheme. DST is implemented as a balanced(More)
Microvascular injury early after hypoxic ischemia (HI) may contribute to neonatal brain damage. N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor overstimulation activates neuronal nitric oxide synthases (nNOS). We hypothesized that microvascular damage occurs early post-HI via nNOS activation and contributes to brain injury. Postpartum day-7 rat pups were treated with(More)
BACKGROUND Limited information is available concerning investigating the separate effect of teenage childbirth on medical issues in the antenatal and perinatal periods. Therefore, this study aimed to assess medical problems in antenatal and perinatal periods among early youth, adolescent and young adult mothers in Taiwan. METHODS This retrospective(More)
BACKGROUND Dexamethasone (Dex) has been used to reduce inflammation in preterm infants with assistive ventilation and to prevent chronic lung diseases. However, Dex treatment results in adverse effects on the brain. Since the hippocampus contains a high density of glucocorticoid receptors (GCRs), we hypothesized that Dex affects neurogenesis in the(More)
This paper presents a pseudo-functional BIST scheme that attempts to minimize the over-testing problem of logic BIST for delay and crosstalk-induced failures. The over-testing problem is evident from the non-trivial number of structurally testable while functionally untestable (ST-FU) faults. Such faults can be detected by some scan/BIST patterns but not by(More)
