  • Patent number: 11119776
    Abstract: A stream of data is accessed from a memory system using a stream of addresses generated in a first mode of operating a streaming engine in response to executing a first stream instruction. A block cache management operation is performed on a cache in the memory using a block of addresses generated in a second mode of operating the streaming engine in response to executing a second stream instruction.

  • Patent number: 11110227
    Abstract: An injecting device includes a housing having a longitudinal axis extending. A dose setting member is rotatable in the housing in a first or second direction about the longitudinal axis. A plunger extends through a bore of the dose setting member and into a bore of a barrel engaged with the housing. Pushing on an arm extending through a slot in the housing rotates the dose setting member in the first direction. As it rotates, indicia on the dose setting member are progressively displayed through an aperture in the housing. An actuator is engaged to release the dose setting member to rotate in the second direction and this rotation causes the plunger to move axially within the barrel's bore and push the pre-set dose of fluid therefrom. The dose setting member remains in a constant axial position within the housing during rotation in each of the first and second directions.

  • Publication number: 20210271014
    Abstract: A lighting display assembly for use with a display monitor includes a light guide plate and a light source. The light guide plate is formed from a single piece of material that is transparent to visible light. The light guide plate includes a center opening extending between its front and rear surfaces and defining an inner sidewall. The light source is configured to emit visible light and is positioned facing the inner sidewall so that light emitted therefrom passes through the inner sidewall and into the light guide plate. A pattern is formed in the light guide plate and positioned to be illuminated by the visible light emitted from the light source so that the illuminated pattern is visible through the front surface of the light guide plate. The lighting display assembly is mounted behind a display monitor and is sized to extend laterally beyond an outer peripheral edge of the display monitor such that the illuminated pattern is visible from in front of the display monitor.

  • Publication number: 20210262099
    Abstract: Using the systems and methods discussed herein, CMAS corrosion is inhibited via CMAS interception in an engine environment and/or is prevented or reduced by the formation of a metal oxide protective coating on a hot engine section component. The CMAS interception can occur while the engine is in operation in flight or in a testing or quality control environment. The metal oxide protective coating can be applied over other coatings, including Gd-zirconates (GZO) or yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ). The metal oxide protective coating is applied at original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and can also be applied in-situ using a gas injection system during engine use in-flight or during maintenance or quality testing. The metal oxide protective coating contains a rare earth element, aluminum, zirconium, chromium, or combinations thereof.

  • Publication number: 20210217615
    Abstract: Methods of improved selectively for SAM-based selective depositions are described. Some of the methods include forming a SAM on a second surface and a carbonized layer on the first surface. The substrate is exposed to an oxygenating agent to remove the carbonized layer from the first surface, and a film is deposited on the first surface over the protected second surface. Some of the methods include overdosing a SAM molecule to form a SAM layer and SAM agglomerates, depositing a film, removing the agglomerates, reforming the SAM layer and redepositing the film.
