A rather long and fancy word for analyzing a system or process and measuring its "characteristics." For example, a Web characterization would yield the number of current sites on the Web, types of sites, annual growth, etc.
Utilizing native Spectre API integration, the combination of the Liberate solution and Spectre Circuit Simulator delivers superior convergence and accuracy, enabling mutual customers to speed up their library characterization cycle.
Alps Electric's decision to adopt the Analog Characterization Environment validates our focus on the creation of breakthrough technologies to help in the design of the next wave of semiconductor products.
However, until we can evaluate the level of uncertainty associated with the observations and conceptual models upon which we base our site management decisions, assessing the cost and benefit of any characterization or remedial activity will be nearly impossible.
For example, molecular characterization of serotype G9 strains identified in the United Kingdom demonstrated a high degree of sequence homology among VP7 genes, suggesting that they had been imported relatively recently (16).
The state inspector overseeing the project considered the sand inert and appropriate for use at the site based on previous samples of this foundry sand that he had analyzed for waste characterization purposes.
Because the subpart F rules are silent as to whether the entity approach or the aggregate approach to partnership taxation applies, the court concluded the proper level for characterization of subpart F income was the partnership level.
With its focus on the characterization of nanocomposites using such techniques as x-ray diffraction and spectrometry, light and electron microscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, as well as nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectroscopy, this book helps to correctly interpret the recorded data.
