  • Patent number: 10932264
    Abstract: The disclosure is related to a method and a system for adjusting a communication channel based on a signal scan result. The system includes wireless gateway modules, a wireless transceiver module and a control circuit. The control circuit determines whether or not the wireless transceiver module conducts any transmission task. The wireless transceiver module is activated to scan signals over a selected frequency when it is available. Multiple scan results can be obtained when the scanning process is repeatedly conducted in different frequencies. Signal information is recorded in a signal scan table. Thus, if the system determines the frequency needs to be adjusted based on a transmission status, one of the frequencies recorded in the table can be chosen and set for the wireless gateway module and a transmission frequency for a terminal node is modified.

  • Patent number: 10923574
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for forming a transistor with one or more additional spacers, or inner-gate spacers, as referred to herein. The additional spacers may be formed between the gate and original spacers to reduce the parasitic coupling between the gate and the source/drain, for example. In some cases, the additional spacers may include air gaps and/or dielectric material (e.g., low-k dielectric material). In some cases, the gate may include a lower portion, a middle portion, and an upper portion. In some such cases, the lower and upper portions of the gate may be wider between the original spacers than the middle portion of the gate, which may be as a result of the additional spacers being located between the middle portion of the gate and the original spacers. In some such cases, the gate may approximate an I-shape, C-shape, -shape, ?-shape, L-shape, or ?-shape, for example.

  • Publication number: 20210022917
    Abstract: A single-piece patient interface device (PI) for coupling an patient's eye to an ophthalmic surgical laser system, which includes a rigid shell, a flexible suction ring joined to a lower edge of the shell, an applanation lens, and a flexible annular diaphragm which joins the applanation lens to the shell near the lower edge of the shell. The flexible diaphragm allows the applanation lens to move relative to the shell, including to shift in longitudinal and lateral directions of the shell and to tilt. In operation, the surgeon first secures the PI to the patient's eye by hand, and then couples the laser system to the PI by lowering the laser delivery head into the PI shell. During the lowering process, the laser delivery head presses the applanation lens down relative to the PI to applanate the cornea of the eye.
