Overhead & Complexity Optimized Network Coding for Improved Network Performance

Communication and data transfer over the internet is driven by speed and the ability to provide uninterruptable high quality services. Conventional network broadcast/multicast protocols are either unreliable (e.g. user datagram protocol- UDP) or rely significantly on control or feedback messages (e.g. transmission control protocol- TCP, pragmatic general multicast- PGM) incurring a great deal of overhead […]

Multifunctional, Atrial Selective Inhibitors for the Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of cardiac electrical rhythm disturbance affecting 2 % of the population. While AF does not generally induce sudden cardiac death, it is the primary cause of 15% of strokes and can also cause adverse remodeling of the heart leading to heart failure. 30-40% of patients undergoing coronary […]

TEC Edmonton honours U of A researchers and spin-off companies at “Innovation … Makes Sense”

Incoming Alberta Minister of Innovation and Advanced Education Don Scott perhaps summed up the reason for TEC Edmonton’s “Innovation … Makes Sense” event at the University of Alberta’s Timms Centre on Tuesday, October 7, 2014.

“My young daughter asked me, ‘Daddy, what’s your new job?’ I tried to make it as simple as possible for her. […]

Novel Small-Area Low-Power Analog to Digital Converter for In-Pixel Data Conversion

Most image sensors incorporate one analog-to-digital converter (ADC) per pixel array, or per column, to process a photodiode’s sensitive signal. The next generation of products aims to incorporate one ADC per pixel, which can result in higher contrast range and resolution, as well as sensitivity. The main challenge in pixel-level data conversion is producing a […]
