Motion estimation (ME) consumes the majority of computation capacity of a DSP in video compression applications. A modified DSP architecture, to accelerate ME algorithms, is presented in this paper. The proposed SIMD and VLIW architecture is a trade-off between ASIC implementation and DSP implementation of ME, which can perform subtract, absolute and add(More)
To investigate the effects of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) on the process of renal interstitial fibrosis, unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) model was established in rats. Twenty Sprague-Dawley rats underwent UUO and received vehicle (n=10) or MMF (20 mg. kg−1, d−1, by daily gastric gavage,n=10) during a period of 5 days following surgery, and the(More)
Hematite, a type of inorganic-sorptive medium, was used for the removal of U (VI) from aqueous solutions. Variables of the batch experiments including solution pH, contact time, initial concentration, temperature, calcium and magnesium ions were studied. The results indicated that the adsorption capacities are strongly affected by the solution pH, contact(More)
This paper presents a wideband frequency-shift keying (FSK) demodulator suitable for a digital data transmission chain of wireless neural stimulation microsystems such as cochlear implants and retinal prostheses. The demodulator circuit derives a constant frequency clock directly from an FSK carrier, and uses this clock to sample the data bits. The circuit(More)
Due to the weak signal energy of the backscatter link, traditional RFID communication is easily affected by noises, interferences, and interceptions from the environment. To solve the problem, a novel passive UHF RFID tag baseband processor enhanced with spread spectrum technique is presented in this paper. In addition, power-saving strategies are proposed(More)
The expression of serum and glucocorticoid-induced protein kinase in the renal cortex of diabetic rats was examined, and the function of signal transduction mediated by SGK1 in diabetic nephropathy and its modulation by fluvastatin were also investigated. 24 male Wistar rats were randomly divided into normal control group (n=8), diabetic nephropathy group(More)
A digital tuning self-calibrating on-chip termination resistor for high-speed SerDes is presented in this paper. An offchip reference resistor is used to adjust the on-chip resistor automatically through feedback. SAR logic is used for tuning, which shorts the tuning time. Special analog design is used to eliminate the offset of circuit and reduce the power(More)
Using the quantum statistical method, the difficulty of solving the wave equation on the background of the black hole is avoided. We directly solve the partition functions of Bose and Fermi field on the background of an axisymmetric Kerr-Newman black hole using the new equation of state density motivated by the generalized uncertainty principle in the(More)
In order to explore the role of connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) in the pathogenesis of renal tubulointerstitial fibrosis, 48 Wistar rats were randomly divided into sham-operated and unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) group. On the postoperative day 1, 3, 7 and 14, the rats were killed and the kidneys were removed. The renal tubulointerstitial(More)
A modified DSP architecture, to accelerate motion estimation (ME) algorithms, is presented in this paper. The proposed SIMD and VLIW architecture is a trade-off between ASIC implementation and DSP implementation of ME, which can perform subtract, absolute and add (SAA.) operations on 8 pixels and fetch 8 new pixels from memory at the same time. A flexible(More)
