S. Saponara, G. Ciarpi, L.Fanucci, "Failure analysis of plastic packages for low-power ICs", Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering, 2017

Abstract. The paper analyses the trend in packaging for low-power integrated circuits (IC) and the principal failures that can occur. A Fault-tree (FT) analysis is proposed, as well an analysis of the failure distribution (FD), which…

A. Sisto, S. Saponara, G. Ciarpi, F. Iacopetti, L. Fanucci, "Testing of DC/DC Converters for 48 V Electric Vehicles", Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering, 2017

Abstract. DC/DC applications in automotive market are expected to require new system speci cations in next years. Because of the spreading of electrical cars, the power line at 48 V will be very common. Moreover, the converter chips and…

Cei D, Costa J, Gori G, Frediani G, Domenici C, Carpi F and Ahluwalia A 2016 A bioreactor with an electro-responsive elastomeric membrane for mimicking intestinal peristalsis. Bioinspir. Biomim. 12 16001

This study describes an actuated bioreactor which mimics the pulsatile contractile motion of the intestinal barrier using electro-responsive elastomers as smart materials that undergo deformation upon electrical stimulation. The device consists of an annular dielectric…

L. Ricotti; G. Gori; D. Cei; J. Costa; G. Signore; A. Ahluwalia, "Polymeric microporous nanofilms as smart platforms for in vitro assessment of nanoparticle translocation and Caco-2 cell culture," IEEE Transactions on NanoBioscience, vol.PP, no.99, p

The study of nanomaterial translocation across epithelial barriers is often hindered by the low permeability of transwell membranes to nanoparticles. To address this issue ultra-thin poly(L-lactic acid) nanofilms with zero tortuosity micropores were developed for…
