  • Patent number: 10817825
    Abstract: Status of a payload and a shipping container is tracked and monitored by a tracking module which receives at least one signal from one or more sensors; determines a rate of change over time for the signal(s) and sensor(s); compares, in real-time, memory-stored rate-of-change thresholds corresponding to a payload type to the determined rate(s) of change; and, responsive to the comparison indicating a current or impending violation of a payload handling condition, powers up a wireless communications interface, communicates a digital report to a remote computing system, and powers down the wireless communications interface upon completion of the communicating of the report, while continuing to monitor the sensor(s).

  • Patent number: 10802723
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide tightly coupled off-die memory along with an interface bus and smart buffer logic so as to efficiently perform certain frequent or repetitive operations off of a core logic. Embodiments of the present invention relieve the core logic from performing certain repetitive or frequent memory accesses and other operations so as to allow such core logic to perform other more general or varied operations. In this way, the universal interface bus, smart buffer logic, and off-die memory are specially configured to perform certain select frequent and repetitive operations while the core logic may configured to perform other operations so as to provide an improved configuration with increased computational capability and reduced power budget.

  • Patent number: 10770372
    Abstract: A fluid routing device includes a fluid inlet, first vertical channels, a horizontal channel, a second vertical channel, and a fluid outlet. The first vertical channels are open to the fluid inlet. The horizontal channel is open to each of the first vertical channels. The first vertical channels are oriented to provide fluid coolant from the fluid inlet vertically down to the horizontal channel. The horizontal channel is open on one side such that fluid coolant in the horizontal channel directly contacts an apparatus attached to a bottom of the fluid routing device. The second vertical channel is open to the horizontal channel. The second vertical channel is oriented to provide fluid coolant vertically up away from the horizontal channel. The fluid outlet is open to the second vertical channel such that fluid coolant from the second vertical channel exits the fluid routing device through the fluid outlet.

  • Patent number: 10752423
    Abstract: A storage and shipping container system for a set of specific related components, such as multiple blood products, which conveys the components in pre-determined ratios, having a thermally-insulated main container with a plurality of internal chambers, and at least one attached auxiliary container which is thermally-insulated. Optionally, the system is provided with wheels and a collapsible handle for easy movement of one system, and configured for stacking of multiple similar systems for bulk transportation.

  • Patent number: 10342737
    Abstract: A shipping and storage system which has an access panel with an optional open/close status sensor, and a payload carrier with an affixed sensor connected to a tracking module that monitors the environment of the payload carrier, such as temperature, against a pre-determined threshold for compliance with pre-determined handling and storage requirements for a specific payload type, such as a specific blood product. When a violation is detected by the tracking module, a user alert or user interface is activated. Advanced features optionally include a plurality of pre-determined threshold sets for a plurality of specific payload types, a tamper detection function based on the access panel status and optional weight changes in the payload carrier, and wireless connectivity to allow mobile device and cloud-based enhanced management functions.
