Computer aided synthesis of an IC electrical diagram from mask data

New planar distributed devices based on a domain principle

1971 IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference. Digest of Technical Papers, 1971

The spacial aspects of bipolar planar circuits are usually of only incidental interest, and are not considered until the layout stage. The devices that constitute the total circuit require attention to geometry, but electrically can be regarded as point-like elements. Structure and function arise from interconnecting these pre-characterized elements.


A modified Pixel Purity Index method for hyperspectral images

2010 2nd Workshop on Hyperspectral Image and Signal Processing: Evolution in Remote Sensing, 2010

This paper discusses issues with the Pixel Purity Index (PPI) method, which is a currently popular way to find endmembers in hyperspectral images. Due to randomness of PPI, it does not produce an entirely uniform set of directions. Consequently, some directions are favored in the space of pixel vectors, resulting in biased endmember identification. To overcome this difficulty, we propose ...

Due to randomness of PPI, it does not produce an entirely uniform set of directions. Consequently, some directions are favored in the space of pixel vectors, resulting in biased endmember identification. To overcome this difficulty, we propose a new method of construction with non-random uniform directions, which results in a more balanced identification of endmembers. Using a family of artificial examples, we show conditions under which the new method outperforms the classic PPI. In all scenarios, the new method is at least as good as the classic PPI.

  • Post contraction hyperemia after electrical stimulation comparison with able-bodied persons and persons with upper extremity paralysis

    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare post contraction hyperemia after electrical stimulation with persons with upper extremity paralysis caused by upper motor neuron disease with able-bodied persons. Methods: Thirteen able-bodied persons and eleven individuals who had upper extremity paralysis caused by upper neuron disease were enrolled in the study. The blood flow of basilic vein was measured by ultra sound system before the electrical stimulation and 30 seconds after the stimulation. Electrical stimulation was done to the biceps brachii muscle. The strength was 10mA, frequency was 70Hz, stimulation time was 20 seconds. The Dynamid electro stimulation system was used for the electro stimulation and the TOSHIBA Xario ultrasound system was used for evaluating the blood flow. Results: The mean blood flow of the able- bodied group and paralysis group before the electrical stimulation was 60 ± 20 ml/min (Mean ± SD) and 48 ± 25ml/min. After the electrical stimulation, both increased to 117 ± 23 ml/min and 81 ± 41 ml/min. Conclusion: It was possible to measure the post contraction hyperemia by ultra sound system. Both blood flow of able-bodied persons and persons with upper extremity paralysis increased after the electrical stimulation due to post contraction hyperemia.

  • An Algorithm for Determining the Orientation and Convexity-Concavity of Simple Polygons

    This paper presents an algorithm which can determine the orientation of a polygon according to the sequence of extreme vertexes. The convexity and concavity of polygon vertices can be determined by examining whether the orientation of the triangle formed by the vertex and its two adjacent vertices is the same as the orientation of polygon. However, the existing algorithms need calculate three order-determinant or vector multiplication. By this proposed algorithm, the efficiency of a point inclusion test method has been greatly improved. Test results show the high efficiency and stability of this algorithm.

  • On characterizing ribbons and finding skewed symmetries

    The author compares Blum, Brooks, and Brady ribbons, and proves that Blum and Brady ribbons are not, in general, Brooks ribbons. Conversely, he proves that Brook ribbons are, in general, neither Blum nor Brady ribbons. For Blum and Brooks ribbons, it is in principle trivial to decide whether two contour points may form a ribbon pair; they have to form a local symmetry. This property is not true for Brooks ribbons. Attention is also given to whether it is possible to characterize locally the pairs of contour points which form a Brooks ribbon pair. Using the curvature of a Brooks ribbon, it is shown that this is possible for some classes of Brooks ribbons, including skewed symmetries. This result is used in an implemented algorithm for finding skewed symmetries in an image, and examples of segmentation of real images are given.<<ETX>>

  • Validating lower extremity counterpulsation during CPR by computer simulated evolution

    Nowadays the outcome of Cardiopulmonary Resusciation (CPR) is dismal. There has been some research showing that if lower extremity counterpulsation is applied during CPR, it might augment coronary perfusion pressure, which is the most important hemodynamic merit of CPR. But lower extremity counterpulsation has not been widely recognized and used during CPR yet. In this paper, a computer model was constructed to simulate hemodynamics of CPR. Based on this computer model and under two simple restrictions, computer simulated evolution was performed to get evolved waveforms for external pressures applied during CPR from randomly chosen waveforms. The results show that the pattern of lower extremity counterpulsation is embodied in the evolved waveforms, thus validating the use of lower extremity counterpulsation during CPR. Our simulation studies show that lower extremity counterpulsation might improve hemodynamics of CPR and deserves further research.

  • Manipulation of Human Behavior by Distorted Dynamics Vision

    They say that human plans its motion mostly relying on visual information. From this point of view, in this paper the authors attempt to modify transfer characteristics of human operated system by displaying false image of plant whose dynamics is intentionally distorted from the real to enhance performance. Though the proposed method is a kind of human assisting scheme, it doesn't require any physical actuator unlike others and basically only a sensor system and a display device such as LCD monitor are needed. The authors employ simulated inverted pendulum as target plant to be controlled. In previous works, the authors found that there is a relationship between performance of human who is playing inverted pendulum game and his or her gain from eye to extremity at a certain frequency. The dynamics distortion is performed by 2nd order filter which is based on this relationship. The filter is designed to educe potential performance of human thus it is called as "performance educer" in this paper. Experiments are made by human subjects, in which they provide higher performance than usual. Finally, the validity of proposed idea is discussed
