  • Patent number: 10250280
    Abstract: Processors are arranged in a pipeline structure to operate on multiple layers of data, each layer comprising multiple groups of data. An input to a memory is coupled to an output of the last processor in the pipeline, and the memory's output is coupled to an input of the first processor in the pipeline. Multiplexing and de-multiplexing operations are performed in the pipeline. For each group in each layer, a stored result read from the memory is applied to the first processor in the pipeline structure. A calculated result of the stored result is output at the last processor and stored in the memory. Once processing for the last group of data in a first layer is completed, the corresponding processor is configured to process data in a next layer before the pipeline finishes processing the first layer. The stored result obtained from the next layer comprises a calculated result produced from a layer previous to the first layer.

  • Patent number: 9815082
    Abstract: In a method for forming nanopores, two opposing surfaces of a membrane are exposed to an electrically conducting liquid environment. A nanopore nucleation voltage pulse, having a first nucleation pulse amplitude and duration, is applied between the two membrane surfaces, through the liquid environment. After applying the nanopore nucleation voltage pulse, the electrical conductance of the membrane is measured and compared to a first prespecified electrical conductance. Then at least one additional nanopore nucleation voltage pulse is applied between the two membrane surfaces, through the liquid environment, if the measured electrical conductance is no greater than the first prespecified electrical conductance.
