  • Publication number: 20180365359
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method of promoting timing constraints in an electronic design automation process of a chip is provided. A method of promoting a lower level block's timing constraint to an upper level block by providing an option to preserve the timing intent of the lower level block at the same time, or to modify the timing constraint such that the block level timing is in context to the top level block timing is provided. The method implements automatic promotion of timing constraint in different modes as an integration mode; an isolation mode and combination thereof, wherein the integration mode is independent of SDCs; and the isolation mode is based on the input SDCs. A method of automatically promoting constant values that are defined through a set_case_analysis command in the SDC file is further provided.

  • Publication number: 20180053229
    Abstract: Systems and methods for community-based transportation management, transportation funding and payment, transportation routing and scheduling, and transportation forecasting and marketplace trading are provided. The system may comprise a transportation planner module, a payment module, a scheduling and routing module, a forecasting module, and/or a marketplace module, each individually or in combination comprising one or more servers, databases, and instructions, in communication with a plurality of external user devices and one or more third-party transportation systems or vendors, for the purposes of transportation management, planning, routing, scheduling, and payment. The system can allow consumers and communities to plan and request trips and provide subsidies; invite contacts; allow vendors to forecast and bid on trips; communicate routing and schedule information; and provide payments.

  • Patent number: 9841756
    Abstract: A method for operating a machine component under stress. The method comprises determining a probability of failure PoF(N) of the component as a function of N cycles, selecting a time-based acceptable risk limit for the component and selecting an operational profile for the component, converting the time-based acceptable risk limit to a cycle-based acceptable risk limit using the operational profile, comparing the cycle-based acceptable risk limit with the PoF(N) values to determine an operational status of the component, comparing the cycle-based acceptable risk limit with the PoF(N) values, and operating the machine component responsive to results of the comparing step.

  • Patent number: 9058520
    Abstract: Systems and methods for inspecting a device are disclosed. The method includes arranging the device in a known position relative to a plurality of movable cameras. The plurality of movable cameras is mounted on a controllable actuator. The plurality of cameras is pointed at the device by controlling the controllable actuator to position the camera with a user interface. An image of the device generated by the camera is displayed on a mobile and wireless display. The computing device also causes a rendered virtual image of the device to be displayed on the mobile and wireless display. A stream of interest and a region of interest is selected at the mobile and wireless display from the images generated by the cameras.

  • Patent number: 9057710
    Abstract: Internal components of power generation machinery, such as gas and steam turbines are inspected with an optical camera inspection system that is capable of automatically positioning the camera field of view (FOV) to an area of interest within the machinery along a pre-designated navigation path and capturing images without human intervention. Automatic camera positioning and image capture can be initiated automatically or after receipt of operator permission. The pre-designated navigation path can be defined by operator manual positioning of an inspection scope within the power machine or a similar one of the same type and recording of positioning steps for future replication. The navigation path can also be defined by virtual simulation.

The pre-designated navigation path can be defined by operator manual positioning of an inspection scope within the power machine or a similar one of the same type and recording of positioning steps for future replication. The navigation path can also be defined by virtual simulation. The inspection system includes an articulated multi-axis inspection scope.
