  • Patent number: 10381247
    Abstract: An electronic device manufacturing system may include a chamber port assembly that provides an interface between a transfer chamber and a process chamber. In some embodiments, the chamber port assembly may be configured to direct a flow of purge gas into a substrate transfer area of the chamber port assembly. In other embodiments, a process chamber and/or the transfer chamber may be configured to direct a flow of purge gas into the substrate transfer area. The flow of purge gas into a substrate transfer area may prevent and/or reduce migration of particulate matter from chamber hardware onto a substrate being transferred between the transfer chamber and a process chamber. Methods of assembling a chamber port assembly are also provided, as are other aspects.

  • Patent number: 10381200
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for processing substrates in tandem processing regions of a plasma chamber is provided. In one example, the apparatus is embodied as a plasma chamber that includes a chamber body having a first chamber side with a first processing region and a second chamber side with a second processing region. The chamber body has a front wall and a bottom wall. A first chamber side port, a second chamber side port, and a vacuum port are disposed through the bottom wall. The vacuum port is at least part of an exhaust path for each of the processing regions. A vacuum house extends from the front wall and defines a second portion of the vacuum port. A substrate support is disposed in each of the processing regions, and a stem is coupled to each substrate support. Each stem extends through a chamber side port.

  • Publication number: 20190237196
    Abstract: Systems and methods for prediction of the treatment outcome for immune therapy are presented in which omics data of a patient tumor sample are used. Most typically, the omics data are processed to identify mutational signatures (especially APOBEC/POLE signatures), immune checkpoint expression, and MSI status as leading indicators to predict the treatment outcome for immune therapy. Such prediction advantageously integrates various parameters that would otherwise, when individually considered, skew prediction outcome.

  • Patent number: 10354265
    Abstract: Various applications, systems and methods for using, and enhancing V2V communications for various purposes are described. These systems and methods leverage various aspects of satellite radio broadcasts in combination with V2V communications. In some embodiments, V2V-enabled vehicles can receive advertisements or offers from RSEs, or even other V2V enabled vehicles, in a defined Target Region, which may then be played to a user in-vehicle once a given Trigger Region has been entered. By logging all advertisements or offers played to a user and sending the log to an RSE, for example, and from there to a content provider (e.g., an SDARS service operator), verified delivery of advertisements is achieved, which allows the content provider to obtain significant revenues from advertisers.

  • Publication number: 20190203454
    Abstract: The bidet system may include multiple seat scales which may float between the toilet bowl rim and the toilet seat. These seat scales may collect measurements which are transmitted to a controller. The controller may include instructions to calculate a user's center of mass based on the measurements and to identify the position of the user's anus based on the center of mass. The controller may then transmit instructions to a bidet wand directing direct the bidet wand to a position which aims a cleansing fluid spray toward the user's anus. A camera which collects images of the user's anal and urogenital region may also be included in the bidet system. The camera may transmit obfuscated images to the controller to identify other areas of the user's anatomy in need of cleansing. The controller may direct the bidet wand to aim a cleansing fluid spray toward these areas.

  • Publication number: 20190188574
    Abstract: The example embodiments are directed to a system and method for generating ground truth for determination of algorithm accuracy at scale. In one example, the method includes receiving raw data from at least one data source, performing pre-processing on the raw data, obtaining first information for generating ground truth data by applying a machine learning algorithm to the pre-processed raw data, obtaining second information for generating ground truth data by applying a signal processing algorithm to the pre-processed raw data, generating ground truth data based on matches between the first information and the second information, and determining accuracy of a source algorithm using the generated ground truth data.

  • Publication number: 20190190950
    Abstract: This disclosure describes a technique to fingerprint TLS connection information to facilitate bot detection. The notion is referred to herein as “TLS fingerprinting.” Preferably, TLS fingerprinting herein comprises combining different parameters from the initial “Hello” packet send by the client. In one embodiment, the different parameters from the Hello packet that are to create the fingerprint (the “TLS signature”) are: record layer version, client version, ordered TLS extensions, ordered cipher list, ordered elliptic curve list, and ordered signature algorithms list. Preferably, the edge server persists the TLS signature for the duration of a session.

  • Publication number: 20190155046
    Abstract: An eye-tracking system is provided. An at least partially transparent visible light waveguide has a visible light display region configured to emit visible light to an eye of a user. A light source is configured to emit at least infrared (IR) light that travels along an IR light path to the eye of the user. A microelectromechanical system (MEMS) projector positioned in the IR light path directs the IR light. At least one diffractive input coupler on an input end of the IR light path downstream of the MEMS projector diffracts at least a portion of the IR light. At least one diffractive output coupler positioned in the IR light path downstream of the diffractive input coupler receives the IR light and directs the IR light toward the eye. At least one sensor is configured to receive the IR light after being reflected by the eye.

  • Publication number: 20190125234
    Abstract: Disclosed is an adapter for use with a multi-port control valve that is used in a blood sampling, blood pressure monitoring system that includes a sampling site, a pressure transducer, and a reservoir. The multi-port control valve includes a partition and a rotatable valve member that rotates around to one of a reservoir port, a sampling site port, or a pressure transducer port to block fluid communication. The adapter comprises: a partition to define an input fluid path and an output fluid path, wherein the partition of the adapter mates with the partition of the multi-port control valve and a partition of the reservoir, in which, the partition in the adapter mates with the partition in the reservoir such that a fluid circuit is created from the multi-port control valve, through the adapter, and through the reservoir, and back to the multi-port control valve.

  • Publication number: 20190125233
    Abstract: Disclosed is a multi-port control valve with multi-lumen paths diverging flow so that, the multi-port control valve fills and expels fluid at the same time through the same port for use in a blood sampling, blood pressure monitoring system that includes a sampling site, a pressure transducer, and reservoir. The multi-port control valve may include a rotatable valve member and three ports. Each of the three ports is connected to one of the sampling site, the pressure transducer, and the reservoir. In particular, the rotatable valve member is rotatable, such that, depending upon a position of the rotatable valve member, one of the three ports is blocked from fluid communication with the other two ports.

  • Patent number: 10241122
    Abstract: We disclose a drug tracking system and method of use which may be used to screen a subject's bodily waste in order to assess whether the subject has consumed a drug. The system includes a drug composition which is tagged with at least one artificial sweetener that may be detected in the subject's bodily waste. The subject may consume the tagged drug and a user may obtain a sample of the subject's bodily waste. The bodily waste sample may be analyzed to detect the artificial sweetener or its metabolite. In some embodiments, the result of the analysis of bodily waste may be entered into a database, compared to standards that comprises analyses of a plurality of drug tags, and the identity of the drug tag, and consequently the drug composition, determined.
