  • Patent number: 9986698
    Abstract: The improved process and apparatus for the restoration of seagrass includes a biodegradable bag or sack, referred to as a sediment tube, that is filled with sand and placed in a prop scar or blow hole. The sediment tube corrects many issues created a prop scar or blowhole: (1) the trench or hole is filled, restoring the elevation of the scar to the surround grade of the seagrass; (2) the sediment tubes stabilize the scar, preventing further erosion of the sand by the flow of water; (3) the sediment tube optionally includes fine-grained sediments that promote seagrass growth and recovery; and (4) the sediment tube includes fertilizer and/or other chemical or minerals that encourage growth.

  • Patent number: 9987056
    Abstract: A kit of parts for inserting a deformable implant into a cavity in a bone of a patient is described. An inserter instrument (1) comprises a body (100) having a cavity extending along a longitudinal axis from a distal end to a proximal end. An attachment mechanism (108) is provided at the distal end and to which a deformable implant can be releasably attached. A drive mechanism (132) is provided at the proximal end of the body. A push rod (150) is freely and slidably arranged within the cavity and has a distal end engageable with a part of the deformable implant and a proximal end abutable by the drive mechanism. The drive mechanism is operable to drive the push rod toward the distal end of the body. The kit also includes an impactor (210) dimensioned for slidable engagement within the cavity.

  • Patent number: 9977439
    Abstract: Various embodiments of methods and systems for energy efficiency aware thermal management in a portable computing device that contains a heterogeneous, multi-processor system on a chip (“SoC”) are disclosed. Because individual processing components in a heterogeneous, multi-processor SoC may exhibit different processing efficiencies at a given temperature, energy efficiency aware thermal management techniques that compare performance data of the individual processing components at their measured operating temperatures can be leveraged to optimize quality of service (“QoS”) by adjusting the power supplies to, reallocating workloads away from, or transitioning the power mode of, the least energy efficient processing components. In these ways, embodiments of the solution optimize the average amount of power consumed across the SoC to process a MIPS of workload.

  • Publication number: 20180106920
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to reducing noise in marine seismic survey data. A shot-by-shot depth migration of recorded marine seismic survey data that includes multiples wavefields indicative of surface reflections may be performed. Post-migration data generated by the migration may include angle information derived from the multiples wavefields. Attributes of the marine seismic survey data may be corrected using the angle information in order to identify a potential sub-surface structure.

  • Patent number: 9857823
    Abstract: A programmable temperature compensated voltage reference is disclosed. In an exemplary embodiment, an apparatus includes a digital-to-analog converter (DAC) that uses a reference voltage and a code to generate a DAC output voltage. The apparatus also includes a temperature compensator that uses a temperature measurement (T) and the DAC code to generate a temperature compensation signal. The temperature compensation signal is represented by a third order polynomial equation. The apparatus also includes a signal combiner that combines the DAC output voltage and the temperature compensation signal to generate a temperature compensated programmable reference voltage.
