  • Publication number: 20200284676
    Abstract: A pressure sensor includes a conductive substrate having a cavity which forms a thin portion that can be deformed by a pressure differential. A magnetic field sensor has at least one coil responsive to a changing coil drive signal and positioned proximate to the thin portion of the substrate that induces eddy currents in the thin portion that generate a reflected magnetic field. Magnetic field sensing elements detect the reflected magnetic field and generate a magnetic field signal. The magnetic field sensor is positioned so that deformation of the thin portion of the substrate causes a distance between the thin portion of the substrate and the magnetic field sensor to change.

  • Patent number: 10771436
    Abstract: In one example embodiment, a proxy for a network obtains a traffic flow. The proxy determines whether a security policy in a whitelist for the traffic flow is active. If it is determined that the security policy for the traffic flow is active, the proxy selectively decrypts the traffic flow to produce one or more traffic flow attributes and, based on the one or more traffic flow attributes, determines whether the traffic flow is potentially malicious.

  • Patent number: 10771873
    Abstract: An audio device with charging contacts on a printed circuit board (PCB) is described herein. In some implementations, the charging contacts are on a surface of the PCB that is a bottom external surface of the audio device, thereby eliminating the need for a custom connector block. Thus, cost and height savings can be realized. In some implementations, the charging contacts are designed to enable 360 degree docking ability with a charging dock. This can be achieved using one or more ring-shaped charging contacts that make physical contact with spring-loaded pins on the charging dock in any relative axial alignment. In some implementations, the audio device includes a mating feature configured to mate with a mating feature of the charging dock to help ensure a proper charging connection is made and to help physically center the audio device relative to the charging dock.

  • Patent number: 10752581
    Abstract: Human lipoxygenases (LOXs) are a family of iron-containing enzymes involved in catalyzing the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids to provide the corresponding bioactive hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (HETE) metabolites. These eicosanoid signaling molecules are involved in a number of physiologic responses such as platelet aggregation, inflammation, and cell proliferation. Platelet-type 12-(S)-LOX (12-LOX) is of particular interest because of its demonstrated role in skin diseases, diabetes, platelet hemostasis, thrombosis, and cancer. Disclosed herein is the identification and medicinal chemistry optimization of a 4-((2-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzyl)amino)benzenesulfonamide-based scaffold. The compounds display nM potency against 12-LOX and excellent selectivity over related lipoxygenases and cyclooxygenases. In addition to possessing favorable ADME properties, the compounds also inhibit PAR-4 induced aggregation and calcium mobilization in human platelets, and reduce 12-HETE in mouse/human beta cells.
