  • Patent number: 8471750
    Abstract: The present invention provides a system for use with an input signal and a clock signal. The system includes a physical random interval generator, a sampling analog-to-digital converter (ADC), a timing signal generator and a reconstructor. The physical random interval generator can generate a random output signal. The ADC can output a sampled output signal based on the input signal and the random output signal. The timing signal generator can output a timing signal based on the clock signal and the random output signal. The reconstructor can reconstruct an information signal based on the sampled output signal and the timing signal.

  • Publication number: 20120310115
    Abstract: An electronic stethoscope includes a housing configured for hand-held manipulation, a transducer supported by the housing and configured to sense auscultation signals at a first location, and a headset coupled to the housing and configured to deliver audio corresponding to the auscultation signals through earpieces on the headset. The electronic stethoscope further includes a processor disposed in the housing and configured to convert the auscultation signals to first digital signals representative of the auscultation signals and to wirelessly transmit the first digital signals from the electronic stethoscope via a secure digital network to a second location such that the audio corresponding to the auscultation signals is provided to headsets of one or more additional electronic stethoscopes at the second location in substantial real time with the sensing of the auscultation sounds at the first location.

  • Patent number: 8270410
    Abstract: Embodiments of sampling techniques for server farms are described herein. In an implementation, the sampling techniques may be performed to find a range of values, in which, a quality of service measurement belongs. Each range is thought of as a “bucket” and may include a corresponding counter that is incremented for each quality of service measurement that falls within the bucket. The countes may then be converted into measurement curves which are published at periodic intervals for examination.

  • Patent number: 8240507
    Abstract: A valve comprises a valve cartridge, a valve stem and a valve seal. The valve cartridge comprises a generally cylindrical cartridge body, a bore extending longitudinally through the cartridge body, and an outlet passage and intermittent inlet passages extending through a side wall of the cartridge body to intersect the bore. The valve stem comprises an elongate body configured to slide within the bore, and a neck and a seal channel circumscribing the elongate body. The valve seal is seated within the seal channel. The valve stem slides within the bore to move the seal channel past the inlet passages. Portions of the cartridge body between the inlet passages retain the valve seal within the valve channel until the inlet passages are open to the neck. In one embodiment, the inlet passages form a crenelated edge. In another embodiment, the inlet passages form a ported end.

  • Patent number: 7451232
    Abstract: A method for automatically exchanging computer data is disclosed. The method includes the step of first generating a data file with a markup language in accordance with a predetermined schema. The schema is agreed upon by the source and destination location. Next, a software envelope containing the data file is generated. The software envelope is transmitted to the destination location. At the destination location, an object is created from the data file with a plugin object corresponding to the predetermined schema.

  • Patent number: 7395540
    Abstract: Automatic business software application is provided. Aspects of business, including objects and activities are classified and described in a comprehensive, standard manner. When a business software component is installed, a discovery manager identifies capabilities and requirements of the software based upon information describing the software in accordance with the standardized classification. The software component is selectively bound to one or more roles of a model-driven bus. In some aspects, a standardized software adapter is able to facilitate use of embodiments of the present invention with prior art software systems. Additional software layers and overhead facilitate the management and operation of multiple software components.

  • Patent number: 5630902
    Abstract: An apparatus for replicating diffractive optical elements by embossing a master optical element into a photopolymer material disposed on a substrate, including a fixture for retaining, aligning, and conveying radiation to the embossing sample so that the photopolymer cures under pressure. Intermediate nickel optical elements may be used in lieu of quartz optical masters. The liquid processing techniques disclosed herein allow the replication of diffractive optics on curved substrates. This additional advantage eliminates the need for a plano optical interface further reducing the element count for a given optical system.

  • Patent number: 5597613
    Abstract: The present invention discloses 1) a process for photopolymer replication on plastics, and 2) the scale-up step-and-repeat process in photopolymers. High fidelity optical element replication using a master optical element having submicron diffractive pattern feature sizes embossed into a UV curable photopolymer material for step-and-repeat "tiling" replication of the master optical element to create light weight, low cost, large area diffractive optical elements (LADOE). Furthermore, by using a chrome mask to eliminate ridge formation around a single diffractive optic element extremely narrow seams result, thereby increasing the optical fidelity of the resulting LADOE. Accordingly, each LADOE made according to the present invention is characterized by having minimum seam widths between patterns of discrete diffractive optic elements that introduce negligible optical distortion to a viewer.
