  • Patent number: 10015167
    Abstract: An extensible key management system includes a developer services portal for accessing an application. The system may identify initiation via the developer services portal of an association of the application with an external API of a third party provider service and automatically obtain a sub-key for the external API from the third party provider service on behalf of a developer of the application. The sub-key may be obtained in accordance with authorization provided by a master key previously provided from the third party provider service. The system may map an association between the sub-key, the application and the external API and store the association. Upon receipt of a service call message resulting from a request from a user device executing the application, the system may identify and replace a developer API key included in the service call message with the sub-key based on the stored association.

  • Patent number: 9967928
    Abstract: A lighting fixture includes a driver module and a separate light engine module, which has a solid-state light source and light engine memory. The driver module is electrically coupled to the light engine module and configured to drive the solid-state light source based on drive data. The drive data defines how the driver module should drive the solid-state light source to generate light with at least one defined lighting characteristic. The drive data may define or be used to identify the signal characteristics, such as drive currents, voltages, waveforms, and the like that must be provided by the driver module to drive the solid-state light source. The drive data is stored in the light engine memory of the light engine module, and the driver module is configured to retrieve the drive data from the light engine memory and drive the solid-state light source based on the drive data.

  • Patent number: 9921894
    Abstract: An extensible single point orchestration system receives service requests from applications. In dependence upon the service request a single third party provider service or multiple third party provider services is identified. When the single third party provider service is identified, the system dynamically adapts a core capability service, using a stored configuration entity, so as to set an appropriate message format and transmit a service call message to an external API of the identified single third party provider service. When multiple third party provider services are identified, the system dynamically adapts the core capability service, using another stored configuration entity, so as to set a respective appropriate message format for parallel data transmission of service call messages to each of the respective identified third party provider services and transmits the service call messages to respective external APIs of each of the third party provider services.

  • Publication number: 20180071024
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention relate to enhanced efficacy of agents (such as drugs) for treatment of skin tissue with photoactive particles, such as plasmonic nanoparticles, and light. Enhanced efficacy may result from, for example, enhanced delivery, activity, or release of the drug that is caused by the localized heat generated via the nanoparticles. Treatments are useful for cosmetic, diagnostic and therapeutic applications.

  • Publication number: 20170330492
    Abstract: An illuminated sign comprises a source of blue light; a quantum dot-containing film that produces green light when illuminated by the source of blue light; and, a patterned blue cutoff filter in optical communication with the quantum dot-containing film configured to allow a mixture of excess blue light from the source of blue light and green light from the quantum dot-containing film to pass through the pattern. The mixture of blue light and green light produces a pseudo white light. The illuminated sign may thus comprise pseudo white letters and/or graphics on a luminous green background.
