    ABSTRACT: An extensive analysis of using the decision feedback equalizer (DFE) that uses a recursive least squares (RLS) adaptation algorithm to equalize multipath fading radio channels in general and digital cellular radio (DCR) channels in particular is performed. Throughout this analysis, the effect of the fade rate, multipath spread, equalizer size, and tracking speed on convergence rate and steady state behavior of a DFE-RLS is examined. Also, for a given fade rate, a compromise between fast adaptation (necessary to track variations in the input statistic) and slow adaptation (necessary to contain noise in the adaptive process) is performed. In addition, for a proposed mobile communication system for North America, recommendations are also documented for some system parameters to ensure an acceptable performance

    ABSTRACT: The foundation and basis for the Honeywell nonvolatile memory program is the proven, radiation hard, CMOS technology, combined with the proven, radiation hard, MRAM nonvolatile memory technology. These demonstrated capabilities allow the Honeywell team to focus on the most critical elements, the production release of the current AMR nonvolatile products and the development of scalable GMR storage elements capable of supporting 4 Gbit/cm<sup>2</sup> nonvolatile memory technology

    ABSTRACT: Dynamin-related protein 1 is member of the dynamin-family of large GTPases. Similar to the endocytosis motor dynamin, Drp1 uses GTP hydrolysis to power constriction of the outer mitochondrial membrane and ultimately mitochondrial division. Dynamin phosphorylation in its unique C-terminal proline-rich domain interferes with binding of accessory proteins that induce membrane curvature and inhibits clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Evidence within the last few years indicates that Drp1 is also regulated by the phosphorylation/dephosphorylation cycle. Drp1 regulation is complex, in that both inhibitory and activating phosphorylations have been described that lead to, respectively, mitochondrial elongation and shortening. In this chapter, we describe methods for the identification and functional characterization of Drp1 phosphorylation sites. Among these methods is replacement of the endogenous protein by phosphorylation-site mutant Drp1 via combined shRNA and RNAi-resistant cDNA expression from the same plasmid. We also discuss primary astrocyte cultures as a model for regulation of cell death and mitochondrial morphology by Drp1 and present ImageJ macro source code for unbiased quantification of mitochondrial shape changes.
