  • Patent number: 10819528
    Abstract: A device may include one or more sources such as circuit elements and electrical components that function as sources for physically unclonable function (PUF) data. PUF data may be acquired from the PUF sources and one or more error correction codes may be applied to the PUF data. The resulting PUF values may be used to generate information that may be used for device security operations such as encryption and tamper detection.

  • Publication number: 20200334657
    Abstract: A point-of-sale (POS) device includes a processor, a battery, a transaction object reader, a printer with a printer controller, and optionally a temperature sensor. The processor determines a present power discharge capability rate of the battery, optionally based on a temperature measured by the temperature sensor. The processor also calculates a first estimated power draw rate based on a first setting value for at least one of the components of the POS device, such as the printer. If the first estimated power draw rate is dangerously close to the present power discharge capability rate of the battery, a second estimated power draw rate is calculated based on a second setting value for the one or more components. If the second estimated power draw rate is no longer dangerously close to the present power discharge capability rate of the battery, the components are set to the second settings value.

  • Publication number: 20200319612
    Abstract: A system and method for replacing a sixteen-pin ECM with a non-sixteen-pin, field adjustable ECM in an HVAC or other system, and adjusting the performance of the replacement motor at the point of installation. A converter module receives programming information from an existing control board via an existing sixteen-pin harness, and converts the information to six signals. The module includes potentiometers for tuning speed/torque for first and second settings, adjusting a horsepower output of the replacement ECM, and adjusting a ramp time to increase or decrease a rate at which the speed/torque changes. The module includes switches for selecting between clockwise and counterclockwise directions for the replacement ECM, selecting between PWM and non-PWM control, and selecting between torque and speed modes. A non-sixteen-pin motor controller receives the information from the converter module via a four-wire harness, translates the information, and outputs a control signal to the replacement ECM.

  • Patent number: 10753982
    Abstract: Approaches provide for determining an internal rate of resistance of a battery in a computing device. In particular, various examples enable using a processor to expose the battery to a first load at a first rate of consumption and to measure a first analog voltage across the battery during exposure of the battery to the first load. The processor is able to expose the battery to a second load a second rate of consumption and to measure a second analog voltage across the battery during exposure of the battery to the second load. Linear equations can be used to solve for the battery's internal rate of resistance based at least in part on the first rate of consumption, the first analog voltage, the second rate of consumption, and the second analog voltage. In various embodiments, the battery's internal rate of resistance can be correlated to a battery health indicator.

  • Patent number: 10740740
    Abstract: A first device and a second device enter a USB monitoring mode. The second device transmits monitoring messages on a periodic basis, while the first device has a monitoring timer that it resets each time a monitoring message is received. If a monitoring message is not received before the monitoring timer expires, the first device starts a reconnect timer. After a certain number of failed attempts to receive monitoring messages, the first device takes corrective action to restore USB communications.

  • Publication number: 20200202357
    Abstract: A payment processing device can implement a monitoring system to detect for tamper attempts at a chip card interface. The monitoring system can establish a baseline when no chip card is present in the chip card interface, or in some embodiments, when it is known that an authentic chip card 14 is present in the slot 21. During subsequent evaluations of the chip card interface by the monitoring system, a response received by the monitoring system that deviates from the baseline can indicate that a tamper attempt at the chip card interface may have occurred. If a tamper attempt is determined by the monitoring system, a remedial or corrective action can be taken.

  • Patent number: 10438189
    Abstract: A payment processing device can implement a monitoring system to detect for tamper attempts at a physical interface such as a chip card interface. The monitoring system can establish local tamper criteria including a baseline when no chip card is present in the chip card interface, or in some embodiments, when it is known that an authentic chip card is present in the slot. During subsequent evaluations of the chip card interface by the monitoring system, a response received by the monitoring system that deviates from the local test criteria can indicate that a tamper attempt at the chip card interface may have occurred. The payment processing device may also communicate test results to a server for further testing, or for an update of the local test criteria.
