Built-In Self Test of Configurable Memory Resources in Field Programmable Gate Arrays 

Milton, Daniel (2007-12-15)
Testing embedded memory resources in Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) is difficult because the collective signal fan-in and fan-out is much greater than the available external I/O. A testing approach is needed that ...

Built-in Self-Test and Calibration of Mixed-signal Devices 

Jiang, Wei (2011-05-05)
Wide adoption of deep sub-micron and nanoscale technologies in the modern semiconductor industry is resulted in very large complex mixed-signal devices. It has then become more difficult to estimate and control device ...

Built-In Self-Test for Digital Signal Processor Cores in Virtex-4 and Virtex-5 Field Programmable Gate Arrays 

Pulukuri, Mary (2010-05-04)
Current Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) incorporate special cores, apart from logic, such as digital signal processor (DSP) cores. The DSP cores can be cascaded to implement complex functions. An effective test ...

Built-In Self-test for Input/Output Cells in Field Programmable Gate Arrays 

Vemula, Sudheer (2006-08-15)
Programmable Input/Output (I/O) cells are an integral part of any Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The resources associated with the programmable I/O cells are increasing as newer architectures of FPGAs are being ...

Built-In Self-Test for Input/Output Tiles in Field Programmable Gate Arrays 

Lerner, Lee (2008-05-15)
Very large scale integration (VLSI) circuits use input/output (I/O) cells to both send and receive signals from external resources. Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and System-on-Chips (SoCs) with FPGA cores offer ...

Built-In Self-Test for the Analysis of Mixed-Signal Systems 

Starr, George (2010-04-08)
A new Built-In Self-Test technique called Selective Spectrum Analysis has been developed for the measurement of analog characteristics in mixed-signal circuits. This design utilizes digital components to generate and collect ...

Built-In Self-Test of Global Routing Resources in Virtex-4 FPGAs 

Yao, Jia (2009-05-05)
It is important to test programmable routing resources in Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) because they take up the largest portion of configuration memory bits. In Virtex-4 FPGAs, routing resources account for over ...

Built-In Self-Test of Logic Resources in Field Programmable Gate Arrays Using Partial Reconfiguration 

Dhingra, Sachin (2006-08-15)
Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are programmable logic devices that can be used to implement virtually any digital circuit design. Built-In Self-Test (BIST) is a testing approach that enables the device to test ...

Built-In Self-Test of Programmable Resources in Microcontroller Based System-on-Chips 

Sunwoo, John (2005-12-15)
System-on-Chip (SoC) implementations typically incorporate embedded Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) cores to take advantage of the programmable logic and routing resources provided by FPGAs. Testing the FPGA core ...

Built-In Self-Test of the Programmable Interconnect in Field Programmable Gate Arrays 

Dixon, Bobby (2008-12-15)
Testing programmable interconnect resources in Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) is difficult because of the large number of wire segments and switches that must be tested. The adoption of Built-In Self-Test (BIST) ...

Bulk Gallium Nitride Based Electronic Devices: Schottky Diodes, Schottky-Type Ultraviolet Photodetectors and Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Capacitors 

Zhou, Yi (2007-08-15)
Gallium Nitride (GaN) is one of most promising semiconductor materials for high power, high temperature and high frequency applications. Due to the lack of native substrates for homoepitaxial growth, GaN electronic devices ...

Bulk segregant RNA-seq reveals expression and positional candidate genes and allele-specific expression for disease resistance against enteric septicemia of catfish 

Wang, Ruijia (2013-11-15)
The application of RNA-seq has accelerated gene expression profiling and identification of gene-associated SNPs in many species. However, the integrated studies of gene expression along with SNP mapping have been lacking. ...

Burke's Rhetoric of Reorientation in Hank Williams' Honky-Tonk Performance 

Robinson, Gregory (2009-07-23)
Music can be a powerful form of constitutive rhetoric. Country music has garnered little attention from rhetoricians despite being a highly adaptive folk-form through the first half of the 20th century. In particular, the ...
