We call the set of layers L satisfying Fact 2 a superlayer. Figure 6(a) shows the block-level view of the NPU timing diagram without the pipelining of layers.
Within a superlayer, while the LNPU processes messages for the blocks [beta]'(u, w), the GNPU can process messages for the blocks [beta]'(u + 1, w), u = {1, 2, ..., [absolute value of L] - 1}, and w = {1, 2, ..., J}.
However, at the boundary of the superlayer, Lemma 6 does not hold and pipelining has to be restarted for the next layer as seen in the layer-level view shown in Figure 7(c).
The above workers noticed an interesting property of their epoxy loaded samples which seemed to contradict previous work that used chromium as a superlayer instead of epoxy.
The microstrip test is closely related to the MELT test in that the same principle of using a superlayer on top of the layer to be tested is used to get a sufficient driving force for delamination.
