  • Publication number: 20200328102
    Abstract: A method for marking a semiconductor substrate at the die level for providing unique authentication and serialization includes projecting a first pattern of actinic radiation onto a layer of photoresist on the substrate using mask-based photolithography, the first pattern defining semiconductor device structures and projecting a second pattern of actinic radiation onto the layer of photoresist using direct-write projection, the second pattern defining a unique identifier.

  • Publication number: 20190282799
    Abstract: The exemplified systems and methods facilitate a nerve conduction block at a target nerve using electrical stimulation applied from one or more electrodes located on a percutaneous lead that are placed in parallel, or substantially in parallel, and without direct contact, to a long axis of the peripheral nerve over an overlapping nerve region of greater than about 3 millimeters. The exemplified system and method can be further configured to block nerve condition without eliciting onset activity and co-excitation of non-targeted structures. The exemplified method and system can be performed using conventional percutaneous leads, though an improved percutaneous lead design is disclosed herein. In an aspect, an introducer is disclosed that facilitates accurate and consistent insertion of the percutaneous lead to the specified or intended position relative to the target nerve. In another aspect, a treatment kit comprising the various system components to treat pain is disclosed.

  • Patent number: 8958886
    Abstract: An article for transcutaneously applying electrical stimulation to sensory receptors. The article is a support to which an electrode pair, a positive and corresponding negative electrode, is attached. Leads are electrically attached to each of the positive and negative electrodes, wherein each lead has an insulated coating. A controller is electrically attached to the leads for delivering monophasic or biphasic electrical stimulation at a single frequency. A power supply is electrically connected to the controller, and may be attached to the support. The article may be a sock, a glove, a harness or an insole.

  • Patent number: 6872301
    Abstract: A high shear rotating disc filter having a hollow interior and constructed of a porous material such as sintered metal or ceramic with finely structured openings. The disc is mounted and secured onto a hollow shaft. The hollow shaft is connected to a vacuum source, external to the filter, that allows for the passage of the filtrate to a receiver. There are elongated slots in the wall of the shaft which provide the passage of filtrate from the disc. The shaft provides rotational force for the discs.

  • Patent number: 6663290
    Abstract: A bearing with shallow grooves on the surface of the rolling element. In addition, pockets of lubricant are carried in its own internal structure via a network of through-holes crossing at its center which release lubricant to the grooves and surface of the rolling element upon the rotation of the bearing assembly.

  • Patent number: 6435431
    Abstract: A powderizing assembly includes a product line for receiving product sized powderized material from a powderizing mill, and a purger assembly for receiving non-product sized material from the mill. Non-product sized material is periodically removed from the mill and fed to the purger. The purger assembly includes a purge line in parallel with the product line for receiving material from the mill. The purge line includes a cyclone separator and a filter. A first valve is operable to direct material from the mill to one of the product line or the purge line. The first valve and a second valve are operable to isolate the product line from the purge line.
