  • Publication number: 20240188262
    Abstract: A thermostat includes a display having a metal backing, a printed circuit board having a ground plane, and one or more electrical components mounted to the printed circuit board in a shielded region on the printed circuit board between the ground plane and the metal backing. One or more conductive side shield elements are positioned between the printed circuit board and the display, extending along and defining the shielded region of the printed circuit board. The one or more conductive side shield elements are electrically connected to the ground plane of the printed circuit board and provide a side shield that reduces Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) generated by the one or more electrical components situated in the shielded region of the printed circuit board from escaping laterally out from between the ground plane of the printed circuit board and the metal backing of the display.

  • Patent number: 11748191
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for techniques for error correction at a memory device are described. In some examples, as part of transmitting a command to access data stored at a memory device, a host device may transmit a combined error control code to the memory device that may be generated using the command and associated inversion information. The memory device may use the received combined error control code to perform an error control procedure on both the command and the inversion information. In some examples, while in a direct link error control code procedure mode, the host system may transmit a command to access data stored at the memory device. The host system may use a same pin or channel to transmit both an error control code for the command and an error control code for the associated data.

  • Publication number: 20230031117
    Abstract: A system for biological analysis includes a housing, a block assembly within the housing having a sample block and a baseplate, a heated cover and a cover carrier. The sample block receives a sample holder comprising an RFID tag. A first drive mechanism generates relative movement between the sample block and the baseplate along a first axis. A second drive mechanism generates relative movement between the heated cover and the cover carrier along a second axis that is different from the first axis. Based on a first command the first drive mechanism releasably engages the sample block and operates the second drive mechanism to releasably engage the heated cover with the cover carrier. The system also includes first and second RFID antennas that receive RFID data from the sample holder RFID tag that is read by at least one RFID reader.
