  • Patent number: 9711459
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a multi-layer substrate structure with an embedded die to miniaturize designs and improve performance. The multi-layer substrate structure includes a core layer having a cavity and a die mounted within the cavity. The die has a die body, a die conductive element on a top surface of the die body, and a dielectric layer over the die conductive element. The multi-layer substrate structure also includes a substrate conductive element formed over a portion of a top surface of the core layer and extending over at least a portion of the die conductive element. Overlapping portions of the die conductive element and the substrate conductive element are separated by the dielectric layer and form an electronic component.

  • Patent number: 9283055
    Abstract: Aligning a drill bit for preparing a bore to receive a dental implant. Using a frame to position cartridges, the frame fitting patient anatomy and having a chamber to receive cartridges. Creating an initial cartridge with an opening to receive a guide sleeve. Optionally, mounting at least one measuring device assembly onto the initial assembly so that measuring device assembly takes measurements with a known relationship to the initial linear trajectory. Using the measurements to enhance a model of the surgical site and to select a surgical linear trajectory for a surgical bore to stay within bone found at the surgical site. Placing a surgical cartridge into the chamber; and placing a guide sleeve in the surgical cartridge with the guide sleeve oriented along the surgical linear trajectory to constrain a drilling trajectory of a drill bit along the surgical trajectory. Many variations disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20150359479
    Abstract: Obtaining information about anatomy relative to a specific linear trajectory into a patient's jawbone using a base unit such as a frame located coronally to a proposed point of entry, the base unit having an open passageway. Placing an instrument guide such as a guide sleeve into the base unit or a cartridge placed in the base unit and precluding rotation of the instrument guide; the instrument guide positioned so that a centerline of the instrument guide is aligned with the specific linear trajectory. Mounting an instrument assembly upon the instrument guide so that the instrument assembly cannot rotate and using the instrument assembly to obtain information about patient's anatomy relative to the specific linear trajectory. Alternatively, the instrument guide may be omitted and an end of the instrument assembly placed directly into an opening in the base unit or a cartridge in the base unit. The instrument assembly may be used to obtain X-ray images.

  • Patent number: 9137934
    Abstract: Embodiments include devices and methods for manufacturing a module having a first shielded compartment and a second shielded compartment, wherein the first shielded compartment is electrically isolated from the second shielded compartment. Electrical conductivity is controlled in a manner in which current flow between shielded circuits is directed to reduce or eliminate energy from being coupled between one or more shielded compartments on the same module. Each module may have a plurality of individual shielded compartments, where each compartment has a dedicated ground plane. The shields for each compartment may be tied to the dedicated ground plane of the compartment. Because the dedicated ground planes are not tied together, each of the shielded compartments on the modules remains isolated from all the other shielded compartments on the modules. In some embodiments having a plurality of shielded compartments, there is at least one isolated shielded compartment depending upon the design needs of the module.

  • Publication number: 20130338962
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a method of motion event detection is disclosed. The method may include or comprise identifying a velocity associated with an object, identifying a location associated with the object, identifying a predefined area associated with the location, and identifying a velocity threshold associated with the predefined area.
