This is a comedy in two acts for 13 actors and s number of non-speaking dancers and extras. It takes about two hours to perform including an intermission. It is written in iambic verse. The script includes stage directions, props and set designs. The play is set in the present but invokes images and themes of the Old West. The story is about a widow (Sally Starr) who owns a ranch left to her by her recently deceased husband (Abe), who also narrates the play as a ghost. The principal protagonists is a grifter (Jehovah Smith) who tries to steal the ranch by stealth. Sally's three puppets, who can talk but only by telling jokes, enlist the town sheriff (Butch Able) to defeat the scam. Meanwhile a Buddhist monk cowboy (Joe de la Paz) comes to town, shares wisdom from the Buddha as comic relief, and is hired by Sally to work at the ranch. The monk persuades Sally and the puppets to go explore for space aliens who were the source of the puppets' enchantment. Smith meets a barmaid (Mabel), with whom he engages in a hilarious, sleazy romance. They are interrupted by Smith's Chicago lawyer (Sophie Bannisher) Who seeks to secure her share of the loot from the ranch scam. But Sophie's jealous husband, Josh, surprises her. Accused on infidelity, Sophie reassures him that his doubts are unfounded and that he should keep an eye on Smith. Thereafter the 8 principals travel to the tree from which the puppets were carved. Beneath the tree they discover a space ship from whom two aliens emerge. The puppets now come alive as the children of the aliens. But Smith gets the drop on the sheriff and threatens to kill everyone. Josh then gets the jump on Smith, incidentally finding gold on the ranch. Sophie then turns her gun on Josh and the others, and instructs Smith to kill everyone again. But before he can do so, the aliens get the drop on them and save the day. An epilogue follows.
Embedded Processor-Based Self-Test is a guide to self-testing strategies for embedded processors. Embedded processors are regularly used today in most System-on-Chips (SoCs). Testing of microprocessors and embedded processors has always been a challenge because most traditional testing techniques fail when applied to them. This is due to the complex sequential structure of processor architectures, which consists of high performance datapath units and sophisticated control logic for performance optimization. Structured Design-for-Testability (DfT) and hardware-based self-testing techniques, which usually have a non-trivial impact on a circuit's performance, size and power, can not be applied without serious consideration and careful incorporation into the processor design.
Embedded Processor-Based Self-Test shows how the powerful embedded functionality that processors offer can be utilized as a self-testing resource. Through a discussion of different strategies the book emphasizes on the emerging area of Software-Based Self-Testing (SBST). SBST is based on the idea of execution of embedded software programs to perform self-testing of the processor itself and its surrounding blocks in the SoC. SBST is a low-cost strategy in terms of overhead (area, speed, power), development effort and test application cost, as it is applied using low-cost, low-speed test equipment.
Embedded Processor-Based Self-Test can be used by designers, DfT engineers, test practitioners, researchers and students working on digital testing, and in particular processor and SoC test. This book sets the framework for comparisons among different SBST methodologies by discussing key requirements. It presents successful applications of SBST to a number of embedded processors of different complexities and instruction set architectures.
After six unsuccessful Seasons, Miss Minerva Dodger chooses spinsterhood over fortune-hungry suitors. But thanks to the Nightingale Club, she can at least enjoy one night of pleasure. At that notorious establishment, ladies don masks before choosing a lover. The sinfully handsome Duke of Ashebury is more than willing to satisfy the secretive lady's desires-and draws Minerva into an exquisite, increasingly intimate affair.
