  • Patent number: 10815011
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an apparatus is attached to a feature to be deployed on a satellite. The apparatus includes a first material having an impedance, a second material coupled to the first material configured to provide a current or voltage to the first material causing the first material to generate heat based on the impedance after a launch process of a launch vehicle carrying the satellite has completed, and a third material configured to change state at a transition temperature. A release mechanism is coupled to the third material and holds the feature in an undeployed position on the satellite. The heat generated by the second material causes the third material to change state when the transition temperature range is reached and the release mechanism is released from the third material when the third material is in the second state to deploy the feature.

  • Patent number: 10649506
    Abstract: Thermal management systems and corresponding use methods are described herein. A thermal management system includes a thermal dock operable to cool a computing device in physical contact with the thermal dock. The thermal dock includes a housing, a first thermal management device supported by the housing, and a second thermal management device physically connected to the first thermal management device. The first thermal management device is a different type of thermal management device than the second thermal management device.

  • Patent number: 10514541
    Abstract: Technology is described for reducing display update time for a near-eye display (NED) device. A point of focus in the NED field of view is identified, often based on natural user input data. A communication module of a computer system communicatively coupled to the NED device transmits lossless priority data, an example of which is user focal region image data, using one or more communication techniques for satisfying lossless transmission criteria. Allowed loss image data is identified based at least in part on its distance vector from a point of focus in the display field of view. An example of allowed loss image data is image data to be displayed outside the user focal region. The allowed loss image data is transmitted and extracted from received image data allowing for lossy transmission.

  • Patent number: 10082584
    Abstract: Various different techniques are used to determine a location of a device, including 3-dimensional (3D) mapping techniques as well as one or more of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) techniques, wireless signal detection techniques, and inertial sensor techniques. The locations determined by these various techniques are combined to determine the location of the device and/or user of the device. In addition to the location of the device, an orientation or direction of view of the device and/or user of the device can optionally be determined as well.

  • Patent number: 9602807
    Abstract: A system and method are disclosed for determining a depth map using TOF with low power consumption. In order to disambiguate, or de-alias, the returned distance(s) for a given phase shift, the system may emit n different frequencies of light over n successive image frames. After n frames of data are collected, the distances may be correlated by a variety of methodologies to determine a single distance to the object as measured over n image frames. As one frequency may be emitted per image frame, the depth map may be developed while consuming low power.

  • Patent number: 9484629
    Abstract: Multi-use antenna techniques are described. In one or more implementations, a device includes a single fixed radiating structure, a first branch coupled to the single fixed radiating structure to tune to a first frequency range to support a first wireless signal technique, and a second branch coupled to the single fixed radiating structure to tune to a second frequency range to support a second wireless signal technique, the second frequency range being different than the first frequency range.

  • Patent number: 8983555
    Abstract: Wireless communication techniques are described. In one or more implementations, techniques are described that involve active power control such that a device may bypass use of a power amplifier to communicate wirelessly. In one or more additional implementations, wireless communication techniques are described in which multiple bands may be leveraged to provide wireless communication. In one or more further implementations, wireless communication techniques are described in which a frame buffer on a receiving device is leveraged by a sending device. Yet further, in one or more implementations wireless communication techniques are described in which a sending device employs codec adaptation. Still yet further, in one or more implementations, wireless communication techniques are described which may be used to change characteristics of a channel used to communicate data.
