  • Patent number: 10752386
    Abstract: Methods for producing a flexible, fibrous ablator thermal protection material, for use in association with a space vehicle that passes through an atmosphere in which severe heating is experienced. A phenolic resin and/or a silicone resin can be used. The elastic modulus of the resulting material is low, in a preferred range of about 200-5000 kPa, and can be controlled by choice of a curing temperature and/or a time interval length for curing.

  • Patent number: 10724085
    Abstract: Compositions, reaction mixtures, and methods for performing an amplification reaction, including multiplex amplification reaction, wherein the method comprises using one or more amplification oligomer complexes comprising linked first and second amplification oligomer members. In one aspect, the amplification oligomer complex is hybridized to a target nucleic acid, the target nucleic acid with hybridized amplification oligomer complex is then captured, and other components are washed away. Target sequences of the target nucleic acids are pre-amplified to generate a first amplification product. The first amplification product is amplified in one or more secondary amplification reactions to generate second amplification products.

  • Patent number: 10415092
    Abstract: Compositions that are used in nucleic acid amplification in vitro are disclosed, which include a target specific universal (TSU) promoter primer or promoter provider oligonucleotide that includes a target specific (TS) sequence that hybridizes specifically to a target sequence that is amplified and a universal (U) sequence that is introduced into the sequence that is amplified, by using a primer for the universal sequence. Methods of nucleic acid amplification in vitro are disclosed that use one or more TSU oligonucleotides to attached a U sequence to a target nucleic acid in a target capture step and then use a primer for a U sequence in subsequent amplification steps performed in substantially isothermal conditions to make amplification products that contain a U sequence that indicates the presence of the target nucleic acid in a sample.

  • Patent number: 10404776
    Abstract: A method for extending a functionality of a computing device programmed to obtain physiological measurements from a patient includes: registering, at the computing device, a plug-in module, the plug-in module providing additional functionality for the computing device; using the plug-in module to communicate with a medical device; commanding the medical device to obtain physiological information from a patient; receiving data associated with the physiological information from the medical device; and transferring the data to a central repository.

  • Patent number: 5727176
    Abstract: A data processor includes a plurality of physical registers and a decoder that decodes a stream of instructions into micro-operations which include speculative operations specifying associated logical registers. The data processor further includes a register-alias table having a plurality of addressable entries corresponding to logical registers, specified by the speculative operations. Each entry of the register-alias table contains a register pointer to a corresponding physical register. The processor further includes a retirement register file that maintains register values of non-speculative operations, and a retirement array that maintains a retirement ordering for the retirement register file. Both the register-alias table and retirement array are updated by circuitry that is responsive to a register exchange operation; the circuitry swapping register pointers associated with first and second entries, respectively.

  • Patent number: 5613132
    Abstract: A Register Alias Table (RAT) for floating point and integer register renaming within a superscalar microprocessor. The RAT provides register renaming of integer and floating point registers and flags to take advantage of a larger physical register set than would ordinarily be available within a given macroarchitecture (such as the Intel architecture or Power PC or Alpha designs) and thereby eliminate false data dependencies that reduce overall superscalar processing performance. As uops are simultaneously presented to the RAT logic, their logical sources (both floating point and integer) are used as indices into a RAT array to look up the corresponding physical registers which reside within a Re-Order Buffer (ROB) where the data for these logical source is found. The ROB is composed of many multiple-bit physical registers. During the same clock cycle, the RAT array is updated with new physical destinations granted by an Allocator such that uops in future cycles can read them for their physical sources.

  • Patent number: 5499352
    Abstract: A Register Alias Table (RAT), including a retirement floating point RAT array, for floating point register renaming within a superscalar microprocessor capable of speculative execution. The RAT provides register renaming floating point registers to take advantage of a larger physical register set than would ordinarily be available within a given macroarchitecture's logical register set (such as the Intel architecture or PowerPC or Alpha designs) and thereby eliminate false data dependencies that reduce overall superscalar processing performance. As a set of uops is presented to the floating point RAT logic, their logical sources are used as indices into a floating point RAT array to look up the corresponding physical registers which reside within a Re-Order Buffer (ROB) where the data for these logical sources is found.

  • Patent number: 5185872
    Abstract: A scbok line is connected to a register file and other units, such as an execution unit and a multiply/divide unit, in a data processing system. A mem scbok line is connected to the register file and other units, such as an instruction unit and a memory interface unit. Each unit connected to the scbok line can pull the line to indicate that it is busy. Each unit connected to the mem scbok line can pull the line to indicate that it is busy. The scbok line indicates, when asserted, that a unit or a register in the register file that is busy with a previous instruction is not available to an instruction for a register file operation. The mem scbok line indicates, when asserted, that a unit or a register in the register file that is busy with a previous instruction is not available to an instruction for a memory operation. Registers are checked concurrently with the issuing of an instruction.

  • Patent number: 5023844
    Abstract: A random access memory cell in a register file having multiple independent read ports and multiple independent write ports that support parallel instruction execution. The RAM cell consumes low power and conforms to a tight layout pitch to meet the needs of the random access memory. A single column line is used, with the storage latch device (M 11, M 12) increased in size to provide for the noise margin loss with reference to the prior art two-column design. A single n-device (M 1) is attached to the opposite side of the cell latch (M 11, M 12) to clear the cell prior to writing zeros into the cell. The registers that are to be written are first cleared in the PH2 of the first clock cycle, with the data written in PH1 of the second clock cycle which writes the ones. The zero bits are also written at this time, but they find a cell that already is in the zero state, having been cleared in PH2 of the first clock cycle.
