Many studies proposed models of ICT acceptance and use in order to better predict and explain users’ behavior to account for the changing technologies. Hence, a question is whether models of technology use and acceptance that have been developed and used in the developed world can be applied to explain Internet acceptance and use by Agriculture staff of two Universities in Ethiopia. To this end, this study applied... Read more.

With respect to the reflective behaviour of solar radiation on solid surfaces being relevant for (micro)-climate modelling, particularly at pavements, buildings and roofs, it is proposed that making a difference between the colour dependent terms albedo as and solar reflection coefficient αs, the former being related to a white surface and the latter being related to the total incident solar radiation. As a... Read more.

In this paper, first a low-power pulse-triggered flip-flop (FF), a simple two-transistor AND gate is designed to reduce the circuit complexity. Second, a conditional pulse-enhancement technique is devised to speed up the discharge along the critical path only when needed. As a result, transistor sizes in delay inverter and pulse-generation circuit can be reduced for power saving. Various post layout simulation results... Read more.
