  • Patent number: 10810122
    Abstract: Dynamic I/O translation table allocation for SR-IOV enabled I/O adapters including receiving an instruction to transition the SR-IOV adapter to shared mode; determining, using a configuration file for the SR-IOV adapter, memory requirements for an I/O translation table; comparing the memory requirements for the I/O translation table to memory currently allocated for use by the SR-IOV adapter; based on the comparing the memory requirements for the I/O translation table to the memory currently allocated for use by the SR-IOV adapter, determining that the memory currently allocated for use by the SR-IOV adapter is insufficient to store the I/O translation table and determining an additional amount of memory required to store the I/O translation table; and allocating, at runtime, the additional amount of memory for storing the I/O translation table.

  • Publication number: 20200164610
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed relate to an article. The article includes a first layer defining a first major surface of the article. The first layer includes a plurality of protrusions extending outwardly from the first major surface. The protrusions comprise an elastic polymer component. The article further includes a second layer opposite the first layer, which at least partially defines a second major surface of the article. The first layer is disposed over a range of about 5% surface area of the second layer to about 99% surface area of the second layer. The first layer and the second layer are in direct contact.

  • Publication number: 20200070314
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed relate to an abrasive sheet. The abrasive sheet includes a first layer including an abrasive major surface and an opposite second layer defining a second major surface. The second major surface includes a plurality of protrusions extending outwardly from the second major surface. The protrusions include a first polymer component having at least one of a Shore A hardness ranging from about 5 to about 100 and a Shore D hardness ranging from about 1 to about 70. The first layer and the second layer are directly joined to each other.

  • Patent number: 4130113
    Abstract: A retractor for opening and holding open an incision to allow a surgeon ready access through the incision during an operation or the like. A plurality of substantially opposed flesh engaging blades for engaging the sides of a surgical incision are pivotally mounted on a body which is provided with an aperture for placement over the surgical incision. A trigger is operatively coupled to the plurality of flesh engaging blades to cause the blades to simultaneously diverge from one another to thereby open the surgical incision and to allow the surgeon access into the surgical incision through the aperture in the body.

  • Patent number: 4095591
    Abstract: An extension is provided for being nonrotatably fixed to a lag screw that is to be anchored to the head of a femur or other bone in a manner so as to allow compression to be applied to a fracture. The extension extends outward of the bone when attached to the lag screw and when the lag screw is anchored to the bone to allow a compression plate to be easily positioned thereon. The cross-section of the extension is substantially the same as the cross-section of the lag screw to allow the compression plate to be easily and quickly passed onto the lag screw from the extension once the compression plate has been positioned on the extension.
