This book focuses on the technologies of the floating body cell (FBC), which is regarded as the most probable candidate to replace the conventional 1T-1C DRAM. It covers basic principles, procedures for device structure optimization, operational methods, relations between different applications, and their suitable technology options. One of the authors (Dr. Takashi Ohsawa) is known as the inventor of FBC and presented the award-winning paper at the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in 2002 for the cell concept and a memory design using the cell.
This book explores current trends in seafood science and examines various related topics including isolation aspects and different methodologies involved in seafood production. It provides detailed explanations about marine species such as fish, seaweed, and crustaceans and discusses their health benefits as well as the health risk for consumption.
