  • Publication number: 20190179933
    Abstract: Provided are a computer program product, system, and method for generating sub-indexes from an index to compress the index. An index has levels of nodes for a composite key comprised of component keys. Each node includes at least one composite key value comprised of component key values. A plurality of sub-indexes is generated including one sub-index for each component key of the composite key. Nodes are generated in each sub-index corresponding to nodes in the index. In each node of the nodes of the sub-index, a component key value is generated, for the component key for which the sub-index was generated, from at least one composite key value in the corresponding node of the index. The sub-indexes are used to search for a record matching a search composite key value in the database using component key values of the search composite key value.

  • Patent number: 10321573
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure are directed towards techniques and configurations to provide solder contacts for electrical connection in socket assemblies. In one embodiment, a solder contact may be disposed on the bottom surface of a die package such that the solder contact is conductively coupled to electrical contacts of the die package. The solder contacts may be disposed to be coupled to pins of a socket assembly, to provide conductive coupling of the electrical contacts of the die package and the pins of the socket assembly. The solder may be selected to be sufficiently soft to provide for better electrical conduction. The pins may also be configured to penetrate the solder contact to provide for better electrical conduction. Other embodiments may be described and/or claimed.

  • Patent number: 10287327
    Abstract: A series of protein A mutants having high alkali resistance, and methods of using the protein A mutants are provided. The protein A mutants have a high binding affinity for regions of immunoglobulin proteins other than the complementarity determining regions. The protein A mutants can be coupled to a solid support for immunoglobulin isolation, or conjugated to a label for immunoglobulin detection. This series of protein A mutants has high chemical stability under alkaline conditions of pH 13-14, and can also be used as chromatography ligands for purification procedures that use alkaline solutions under harsh conditions, such as Clean-In-Place (CIP). Also provided are methods of immunoglobulin separation and purification, and alkali regeneration of affinity chromatography medium that uses protein A as a ligand.

  • Patent number: 10281723
    Abstract: A tiled head-mounted display device, comprising: an optical component including a plurality of prisms with free-form surfaces, each prism being a wedge prism comprising a first optical surface, a second optical surface and a third optical surface; and a display component including a plurality of micro-displays, wherein the number of the micro-displays and the number of the prisms with free-form surfaces is identical. The tiled head-mounted display device according to the present invention is compact and light, provides wide field of view and high resolution, especially for the optical tiling head-mounted display device, the exit pupil planes of each display channels are coincident, thus avoiding pupil aberration and keeping exit pupil diameter and eye clearance same as the single ocular. There is no resolution variance throughout the entire field of view, thus preventing extra trapezoid distortion.

  • Publication number: 20190032912
    Abstract: A heat dissipation fan structure capable of showing a pattern of light includes a circuit board, a light guide plate, a light-permeable element, and a vane assembly sequentially connected together. The circuit board is provided with a light emission unit. The vane assembly has a light-permeable wall made of a light-permeable material. The light emitted by the light emission unit is evenly diffused by the light guide plate, passes through the light-permeable element, and is rendered into a specific pattern (e.g., a decorative design and/or characters) by the light-permeable portion of the light-permeable element, wherein the light-permeable portion is shaped according to user needs. The light-permeable material of the light-permeable wall of the vane assembly allows the decorative design and/or characters of light to be seen externally. The heat dissipation fan structure, therefore, can show a pattern of light in addition to dissipating heat.

  • Publication number: 20190029143
    Abstract: A heat dissipation fan with a detachable light emission unit includes a housing and a vane assembly in addition to the light emission unit. The housing has a bottom housing portion, a top housing portion, and a peripheral wall portion connected between the bottom and top housing portions. The bottom and top housing portions and the peripheral wall portion jointly surround a receiving space. Each of the bottom and top housing portions has a through hole in communication with the receiving space. The top side of the top housing portion, i.e., the side facing diametrically away from the bottom housing portion, has a lamp groove. The vane assembly is rotatably mounted in the receiving space and on the plane where the bottom housing portion lies. The light emission unit is detachably mounted in the lamp groove and, when damaged, can be detached and replaced to avoid waste of resources.

  • Publication number: 20190018247
    Abstract: Several unique hardware configurations and methods for freeform optical display systems are disclosed. A freeform display system includes primary freeform optical element(s) and secondary freeform optical element(s) in tiled arrangements to expand the horizontal field of view (FOV) or the vertical field of view. The system may include a variable focusing system that produces intermediate pupil and changes the focal distance of a single focal plane or switches among multiple focal planes for rendering objects in focus while resolving accommodation-convergence conflict. The system may map light samples to appropriate light rays in physical space and use a cluster of projectors to project the mapped light rays to produce the light field of the virtual display content. Methods for making tiled freeform optical display systems and methods for producing virtual content with variable focus freeform optics and rendering light fields are also disclosed.
