However, the higher degrees of phase separations and erystallinity observed in the polyurethanes prepared in an aqueous dispersion resulted in an increase in the ability of the polymer to recover shape in a typical shape memory cycle (i.e., the shape recovery ratio, [R.sub.r] of PU/[SM.sub.WATER] was higher than that for PU/[SM.sub.THF]).
"We really needed to break that memory cycle and they are much better and happier than before we went away."
This high-performance core is further enhanced by the addition of an internal 16-bit path that allows 2-byte instructions to be fetched in a single memory cycle. The wider path coupled with a pre-fetch queue and branch cache brings average performance to 9 MIPS, with peak performance at 10 MIPS.
