  • Patent number: 10366901
    Abstract: Some embodiments include an integrated structure having a semiconductor base and an insulative frame over the semiconductor base. The insulative frame has vertically-spaced sheets of first insulative material, and pillars of second insulative material between the vertically-spaced sheets. The first and second insulative materials are different from one another. Conductive plates are between the vertically-spaced sheets and are directly against the insulative pillars. Some embodiments include capacitors, and some embodiments include methods of forming capacitors.

  • Publication number: 20190227049
    Abstract: A method of board lumber (Table 2) grading is performed in an industrial environment on a machine learning framework (12) configured as an interface to a machine learning-based deep convolutional network (20) that is trained end-to-end, pixels-to-pixels on semantic segmentation. The method uses deep learning techniques that are applied to semantic segmentation to delineate board lumber characteristics (Table 1), including their sizes and boundaries.

  • Patent number: 10341794
    Abstract: Audio speaker systems and methods are provided to detect movement of the speaker system or other device. An audio program content signal is converted into an acoustic signal, and the acoustic signal causes an echo signal. The echo signal is received and a relationship of the echo signal to the audio program content signal is quantified. A quantified value is compared to a stored quantified value and, based upon the comparison, a change in physical position is selectively indicated.

  • Publication number: 20180077485
    Abstract: A multimedia system includes at least a first pair of satellite loudspeakers for radiating left and right channel signals, the satellite loudspeakers having a first lower cutoff frequency. The loudspeaker system also includes a separate subwoofer having a first upper cutoff frequency. The first lower cutoff frequency is higher in frequency than the first upper cutoff frequency. The loudspeaker system also includes a center loudspeaker array. The center loudspeaker array radiates center channel signals, and also directionally radiates left and right channel signals in the frequency range between the first lower cutoff frequency and the first upper cutoff frequency. The multi-channel loudspeaker system may also incorporate additional satellite loudspeakers for reproduction of surround channel signals.

  • Patent number: 9503793
    Abstract: There is provided a system and method enabling client-side initiated identification of media content rendered on a client-side media player. In one embodiment, the system comprises the client-side media player including a controller and a memory, a media content database accessible by the client-side media player over a network, and a media content identifier application to be run on the client-side media player. The media content identifier application, when executed by the client-side media player controller, performs a method comprising sampling the media content, sending a first data corresponding to the sample to the media content database over the network, and receiving a second data over the network identifying the media content, thereby enabling client-side initiated identification of the media content rendered on the client-side media player.

  • Patent number: 9412594
    Abstract: A method for defining patterns in an integrated circuit comprises defining a plurality of features in a first photoresist layer using photolithography over a first region of a substrate. The method further comprises using pitch multiplication to produce at least two features in a lower masking layer for each feature in the photoresist layer. The features in the lower masking layer include looped ends. The method further comprises covering with a second photoresist layer a second region of the substrate including the looped ends in the lower masking layer. The method further comprises etching a pattern of trenches in the substrate through the features in the lower masking layer without etching in the second region. The trenches have a trench width.
