  • Patent number: 11779367
    Abstract: Polypectomy devices and methods for making and using polypectomy devices are disclosed. An example polypectomy device may include an elongate sheath having a proximal end region and a distal end region. A shaft may be slidably disposed within the sheath. A handle may be coupled to the proximal end region of the sheath. The handle may be designed to axially shift the shaft relative to the sheath. A snare may be coupled to the shaft. The snare may include a first region, a traction region, and a distal tip region. The first region may have a non-circular cross-sectional shape. The traction region may include a plurality of traction members. At a position between two adjacent traction members the snare may have a reduced cross-sectional area relative to the first region. The distal tip region may have a circular cross-sectional shape.

  • Patent number: 11754623
    Abstract: Systems and techniques of the present disclosure may provide remote debugging of an integrated circuit (IC) device while preventing unauthorized access of device intellectual property (IP). A system may include an IC device that generates an encrypted session key and an interface that enables communication between the IC device and a remote debugging site. The interface may enable the IC device to send the encrypted the encrypted session key to initiate a remote debug process, receive an acknowledgement from the remote debugging session, and authenticate the acknowledgement. Further, the interface may enable to the IC device to initiate a secure debug session between the IC device and the remote debugging site.

  • Patent number: 10657927
    Abstract: A system for providing hands-free input to a computer. The system includes one or more artificial cilia mounts attached to an eyelid or eyelash of a user, by which one or more of the artificial cilia extending therefrom are adapted to cause generation of an input command in response to an intentional blinking motion, and a computer to which blinking-derived input commands are transmittable. The system further includes a movement sensor mounted for detecting a calibrated instantaneous head orientation of the user. The system includes a means for duplicating a portion of video data or a representation thereof that would cause corresponding images to be viewable by the user on a computer screen in response to the instantaneous head orientation and for displaying the images corresponding to the duplicated portion.

  • Publication number: 20190071770
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing transparent polymer with glass-like properties involves depositing silica glass molecules on a substrate to be coated through a chemical vapor deposition process prior to completing a full curing process. The chemical vapor deposition process is performed within a vacuum or ‘quasi’ vacuum atmosphere, which is held at a temperature below 30° C. Upon completion of the chemical vapor deposition process, curing the coated substrate a second time at a temperature exceeding 150° C. A transparent polymer may be manufactured according to the method described.
