  • Patent number: 10402530
    Abstract: Disclosed are techniques for implementing placement using row templates for an electronic design using row templates. These techniques identify or create a row region in a layout of an electronic design. A row template is applied to the row region to create one or more placement rows in the row region. One or more layout circuit components may then be placed into one or more rows or at one or more locations to create a legal placement layout by guiding placement of the one or more layout circuit components with the row template.

  • Publication number: 20190141854
    Abstract: In one aspect, an apparatus comprises a housing, a heat-generating component, a heat spreader, and a heat-transfer pipe. The housing forms a cavity in which the heat-generating component is located. The heat spreader is operable to distribute heat over a portion of the housing. The heat-transfer pipe is pivotally coupled to the heat-generating component and the heat spreader. The heat-transfer pipe operable to transfer heat from the heat-generating component to the heat spreader. The heat-transfer pipe and the heat spreader are movable between a first configuration and a second configuration. In the first configuration, a gap separates the heat spreader and the portion of the housing based on the heat-transfer pipe being at a first orientation. In the second configuration, the heat spreader closes the gap and is thermally coupled to the portion of the housing based on the heat-transfer pipe being at a second orientation.

  • Patent number: 9803245
    Abstract: A method of predicting outcome in a subject with for example Her2+ (ER??) breast cancer comprising: (a) determining a HTICs expression signature comprising determining an expression level of 2 or more HTICS biomarkers selected from Aurkb, Ccna2, Scrn1, Npy, Atp7b, Chaf1b, Ccnb1, Cldn8, Nrp1, Ccr2, C1qb, Cd74, Vcam1, Cd180, Itgb2, Cd72, St8sia4, Kif11, Plk1, Chek1, Mphosph6, Cora1a, Ccl5, Cd3e, Hcls1, Vav1, Plek, Arhgdib, Il2rg, Sash3, Lck, Il2rb, Cybb, Cd79b, Sell, Ccnd2, Tnfrsf1b, Rftn1, Rac2 and Ly86; and (b) calculating a signature score, the signature score comprising a sum of HTICs biomarker expression parameters; wherein a signature score greater than a selected cut-off or control signature score is indicative of a poor outcome (HTICS+) and a signature score less than a selected cut-off is indicative of a good outcome (HTICS?). The methods can be used to prognose outcome and/or select suitable treatment. Arrays and kits for use with the methods are also provided.

  • Patent number: 9584152
    Abstract: A current-steering digital-to-analog converter may include dual current switch modules configured to receive digital input bits representative of desired analog output, and each dual current switch module may be controlled by one of the digital input bits. Each digital input bit may be represented by differential signals. The positive input and the negative input to drive two separate current switches in the dual current switch module may be separated, which may make the switching transition noise generated in the two current switches have a 180 degree phase difference. The output currents of these two current switches may be summed in proper phase to add the in-phase signal currents while canceling out the 180 degree out-of-phase switching noises generated in the two current switches. The 2nd order harmonic distortion and other higher even order harmonic distortions due to the common mode switching noise may be greatly reduced.

  • Patent number: 8984433
    Abstract: An enterprise management system may present data in a user interface that contains tabular data and a graphical representation of the tabular data. The graphical representation may change based on portions of the tabular data that may be selected, and may show a graphical data summary if no rows are selected, or detailed graphical illustrations of the selected rows. In some cases, filters may be applied to the data, and a selection tool may enable a user to select from several different parameters in each row.

  • Patent number: 8478802
    Abstract: An item grouping mechanism may be applied to files or other computer objects to allow the files or objects to be accessed according to the group definition. The group definition may be defined in a table with other group definitions and distributed across an organization so that each device using the group definition may have files or other items presented in a consistent manner. The group definition may be distributed through a different mechanism than for the files or other items. If a device determines that a file defined in the group definition is missing from a local store, the device may retrieve the file from a distribution server.
