  • Publication number: 20200287984
    Abstract: A global architecture (GLP), as disclosed herein, is based on the thin server architectural pattern; it delivers all its services in the form of web services and there are no user interface components executed on the GLP. Each web service exposed by the GLP is stateless, which allows the GLP to be highly scalable. The GLP is further decomposed into components. Each component is a microservice, making the overall architecture fully decoupled. Each microservice has fail-over nodes and can scale up on demand. This means the GLP has no single point of failure, making the platform both highly scalable and available. The GLP architecture provides the capability to build and deploy a microservice instance for each course-recipient-user combination. Because each student interacts with their own microservice, this makes the GLP scale up to the limit of cloud resources available—i.e. near infinity.

  • Patent number: 10766712
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for sorting items to a plurality of sort destinations. The items are fed into the apparatus at an input station having a scanning station. The scanning station evaluates one or more characteristics of each item. The items are then loaded onto one of a plurality of independently controlled delivery vehicles. The delivery vehicles are individually driven to sort destinations. Once at the appropriate sort destination, the delivery vehicle ejects the item to the sort destination and returns to receive another item to be delivered. A re-induction conveyor may be provided for receiving select items from the vehicles and conveying the items back to the input station for re-processing. Additionally, a controller is provided to control the movement of the vehicles based on a characteristic of each item being delivered by each vehicle. The system may also include vehicles having an assembly for detecting items being loaded onto or discharged from the vehicles.

  • Publication number: 20200234863
    Abstract: Theoretical and practical constraints disallow direct determination of the structure of the atomic nucleus. Contained herein is a magnet model of the atomic nucleus, derived from considerations of charge density, RMS charge radii, magnetic moments, and nucleon binding energy. These physical properties point to a sequential, alternating up and down quark structure modeled in the present invention by an array of magnets alternating in polarity. The summation of the pull forces of the two magnet poles is unequal, and when two such magnet arrays are placed opposite one another in magnetic potential energy barrier assembly, the two arrays repel at a distance and attract when near one another. In one embodiment, the ratio of the maximum attractive force to the maximum repulsive force very closely approximates the strong force constant 137. This invention serves as a demonstration of the Coulomb barrier for the student, and a potentially useful model for probing the forces and structure of the atomic nucleus.

  • Publication number: 20200225879
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to limiting bandwidth in storage devices. One or more bandwidth quality of services levels may be selected and associated with commands according to service level agreements, which may prioritize some commands over others. A storage device fetches and executes one or more the commands. Each of the commands is associated with a bandwidth quality of service level. After executing the commands and transferring the data to a host device, the storage device may delay writing a completion entry corresponding to the executed commands to a completion queue based on the associated bandwidth quality of service level of the commands. The device may then delay revealing the completion entry by delaying updating a completion queue head pointer. The device may further delay sending an interrupt signal to the host device based on the associated bandwidth quality of service level of the commands.

  • Patent number: 10596721
    Abstract: An apparatus and method of manufacturing a porous ceramic segmented honeycomb body (340,340?) comprising axial channels (216) extending from a first end face (220) to a second end face (224). A plurality of porous ceramic honeycomb segments (204) is moved axially past respective apertures (110) of an adhesive applying device (100). Adhesive (118) is applied through openings (126) in the adhesive applying device (100) onto peripheral axial surfaces of each porous ceramic honeycomb segment (204). The plurality of porous ceramic honeycomb segments (204) enters a wide opening (318) of a tapered chamber (314) and exits a narrow opening (322) of the tapered chamber (314); a tapered wall (326) from the wide opening (318) to the narrow opening (322) presses the plurality of porous ceramic honeycomb segments (204) together forming the porous ceramic segmented honeycomb body (340,340?).

  • Patent number: 10564857
    Abstract: Systems and methods for quality of service (QoS) using adaptive command fetching are disclosed. NVM Express (NVMe) implements a paired submission queue and completion queue mechanism, with host software on the host device placing commands into the submission queue. The memory device processes the commands through various phases including fetching, processing, posting a completion message, and sending an interrupt to the host. NVMe also includes an NVMe virtualization environment, which uses a subsystem with multiple controllers to provide virtual or physical hosts direct I/O access. QoS may be used so that the NVMe processes in the virtualization environment receive sufficient resources. In particular, bandwidth assigned to a submission queue may be considered when processing of commands (such as fetching of commands). In the event that the bandwidth assigned to the submission queue is exceeded, the processing of the commands (such as the fetching of the commands) may be delayed.

  • Patent number: 10548370
    Abstract: A shoe sole includes a footbed, a midsole, and an outsole. The footbed includes deformable semi-tubular elements that protrude downward and are received in corresponding trough-shaped cavities of the midsole, which provide cushioning when the semi-tubular elements are compressed under load, and also provide a spring return effect. The semi-tubular elements may have a depth greater than a depth of a corresponding trough shaped cavity whereby the footbed is held in a raised position above the top surface of the midsole. The separation between the footbed and the top surface of the midsole is smaller in forefoot area and greater in the heel area. The separation provides shock absorption and resilience in the shoe because it allows the semi-tubular elements to deform under load and absorb impact shocks.
