  • Patent number: 10763141
    Abstract: Embodiments of the disclosure relate to methods for measuring temperature and a tool for calibrating temperature control of a substrate support in a processing chamber without contact with a surface of the substrate support. In one embodiment, a test fixture with a temperature sensor is removably mounted to an upper surface of a chamber body of the processing chamber such that the temperature sensor has a field of view including an area of the substrate support that is adjacent to a resistive coil disposed in the substrate support. One or more calibration temperature measurements of the area of the substrate support are taken by the temperature sensor and simultaneously one or more calibration resistance measurements of the resistive coil are taken corresponding to each calibration temperature measurement. Temperature control of a heating element disposed in the substrate support is calibrated based on the calibration temperature and calibration resistance measurements.

  • Publication number: 20200201984
    Abstract: An application runs in a first security zone of a computer system. Trace information generated from running the application is stored in a first security zone. Filtered trace information is generated by removing specified information from the trace information. The filtered trace information is stored in a particular storage location within the first security zone. An adapter application that is running within the first security zone is executable to access the particular storage location and call a second security zone. The adapter application transmits, from the first security zone to a datastore within the second security zone, the filtered trace information stored in the particular storage location. Communication between the first security zone and the second security zone is one-way from the first security zone to the second security zone.

  • Publication number: 20200175425
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention proposes a method to automatically identify the flying targets by physical information (coordinates, heading, speed), time, and identification information (3/A code). This method includes two steps: features extraction and building machine learning model. In the features extraction step, features which are extracted include: cell indexes corresponding to coordinates, information of flight path, time in day/night format, heading, speed, and 3/A code, constructing n-dimensional vector. This vector is used as input for training a Random Forest model, to automatically identify class label of flying targets.

  • Publication number: 20200022920
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a rupture-stable gelatin filled capsule, produced from xylose cross-linked gel masses. The xylose cross-linked masses are made from a 0.01%-2% xylose solution combined with gelatin masses. The gelatin masses may be produced from gelatin of bovine, pork, fish, chicken, duck, or other poultry. The xylose solutions and gelatin masses are then mixed at temperatures from 135-200° F. and yield viscosities from 10,000-16,000 cps, creating a capsule which can be resistant to rupture in gastric digestives, but which will then rupture after a time period within the intestinal tract.

  • Patent number: 10478948
    Abstract: Tools for installing network hardware in server racks may self-adhere to a server rack, alleviating the need for cap screws to attach the tool to the rack. The tool also may support the weight and aid alignment of the network hardware in a rack unit during installation. In some embodiments, the tool may include one or more spring-loaded locks adapted to couple to corresponding holes in the rack. The network device may rest atop the tool so that the network device is properly aligned for installation in the rack unit above the tool. In operation, a technician may couple one or more tools to the rack in the slot below the intended rack unit for the network device to provide hands-free support of the weight of the network device. The technician may then use both hands to screw the network device to the rack.

  • Publication number: 20190343639
    Abstract: A prosthesis for replacing a natural articular surface on a bone may have a joint facing side with an articular surface, a bone anchoring side with a bone engagement surface, and a bone engagement pad secured to at least part of the bone engagement surface. The bone engagement pad may have a transverse portion extending transverse to a length of the bone, and one or more protruding portions extending generally perpendicular to the transverse portion. The transverse portion may have a pad bone-facing surface with a first porosity level, and a pad joint-facing surface on an opposite side of the transverse portion from the pad bone-facing surface, with a second, lower porosity level. The bone engagement surface may be formed via a first manufacturing process selected from the group consisting of forging, milling, and casting. The bone engagement pad may be formed via an additive manufacturing process.

  • Patent number: 10456143
    Abstract: A prosthesis may have an articulating component formed via casting and a 3D printed bone anchoring component with a joint-facing side and a bone-facing side. The bone-facing side may have a bone engagement surface with a porous structure with pores selected to facilitate in-growth of the bone into the pores. The bone facing side may further have a surface layer of Titanium Dioxide nanotubes. The joint-facing side may be secured to the articulating component by melting Titanium nanoparticles at a temperature below the melting temperatures of the major constituents of the articulating component and/or the bone anchoring component, such as Cobalt, Chromium, and/or Titanium, so as to avoid significantly modifying the crystalline structures of the articulating component and/or the bone anchoring component. The melting temperature of the Titanium nanoparticles may be about 500° C.
