  • Patent number: 10921943
    Abstract: A compliant material, such as a conductive foam, is positioned in the dielectric or capacitive gap between drive and sense electrodes and/or other conductive elements of a capacitive and/or other force sensor, such as a TFT or other display element and a sensor assembly. The compliant material prevents damage by preventing and/or cushioning contact. The compliant material may be conductive. By being conductive and being positioned between the electrodes while still being separated from one or more of the electrodes, the compliant material also shortens the effective electrical distance between the electrodes. As a result, the force sensor may be more sensitive than would otherwise be possible while being less vulnerable to damage.

  • Patent number: 10891624
    Abstract: Method, systems, and apparatus for integrated online and offline sales management. A system manages both offline and online transactions and inventory in an integrated environment. An offline transaction is a sale at a point of sale (POS) system, e.g., at a typical “brick and mortar shop” physical store. An online transaction is a sale using an online store, e.g., an online shopping cart and checkout system accessed by a web browser or other application. An online store can be converted to offline store, and vice versa. An inventory management system can receive an input from a merchant device of merchant designating an item carried by the merchant as an item to be sold at the physical store, at the online store, or both. The inventory management system can modify a record of the item to respond to the input.

  • Publication number: 20210004115
    Abstract: A force input sensor includes a load cell to adapt a compressive force applied to the force input sensor into a strain experienced by a strain sensor in the load cell. In particular, the load cell includes two compression plates separated from one another by a gap so as to define a volume between them. A flexible substrate (a “diaphragm”)—includes a strain sensor and is disposed and supported within the volume. One of the two compression plates includes a feature (a “loading feature”) that extends toward a central region of the flexible substrate. As a result of this construction, when the compression plates receive a compressive force, the loading feature induces a bending moment in the flexible substrate, thereby straining the strain sensor.

  • Patent number: 10887334
    Abstract: A cybersecurity system and method utilizing SOUND reputation, where a set of reputations are associated with each actor on a network. The actors on a network may be users, hosts, applications, and the like. The associated reputations are aggregated and updated as new information about an actor's activity is reported according to a defined and modifiable protocol, or policy. The actor's activity may be reported by one or more threat sensors. The effect of a particular misbehavior can be tuned to match the needs of the specific network. When a bad actor's reputation sinks too low, the system can take whatever action is appropriate: reports can be sent, an operator can be notified, the offender can be cut off from the network, or the like.

  • Patent number: 10809956
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for presenting supplemental content items on a user device while requested additional content is obtained. For example, a user is presented with a content item, such as an image, an advertisement, etc., on a display of a user device. The content item, when interacted with by the user, results in a request for additional content, such as a web page, being sent to a remote computing resource, the additional content item being received by the user device from the remote computing resource, loaded by the user device, and presented to the user on the display of the user device. Rather than presenting the user with a blank screen, an empty window, a “loading” notification (e.g., spinning icon), etc.

  • Publication number: 20200312930
    Abstract: An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display may have an array of organic light-emitting diode pixels that each have OLED layers interposed between a cathode and an anode. Voltage may be applied to the anode of each pixel to control the magnitude of emitted light. The conductivity of the OLED layers may allow leakage current to pass between neighboring anodes in the display. To reduce leakage current and the accompanying cross-talk in a display, the pixel definition layer may disrupt continuity of the OLED layers. The pixel definition layer may have an undercut to disrupt continuity of some but not all of the OLED layers. The undercut may be defined by three discrete portions of the pixel definition layer. The undercut may result in a void that is interposed between different portions of the OLED layers to break a leakage path formed by the OLED layers.
