  • Publication number: 20190222919
    Abstract: The present invention describes an enhanced audio communication system which, in certain preferred embodiments, may be employed to advantage in situations involving face-to-face communication between speaking and listening participants within a group located in a noisy environment. In preferred embodiments, the speaking participants and listening participants serve dual roles, both as speakers and listeners. Enhanced audio communication systems for use in face-to-face communication create a specific challenge in implementation, because in this type of face-to-face communication situation, participants experience an augmented reality situation whereby the listening participants hear both the natural auditory signals emanating from the speaking participants and the electronically delivered auditory signals being transmitted via the system, while also seeing the mouth movements of the speaking participants.

  • Patent number: 9614669
    Abstract: One embodiment includes hardware-based cybersecurity devices that create a physical barrier (“hardware security barrier”) between a computer's (or other device's) processor and a public or private network. Hardware security barriers typically use immutable hardware in accomplishing cybersecurity activities including generating and distributing cryptographically secure numbers, encryption, decryption, source authentication, and packet integrity verification. This hardware security barrier protects against remote threats and guarantees that all exported and received data are strongly encrypted. A hardware security barrier can be included in any computing or networking device that contains a network interface. One embodiment of a hardware security barrier is implemented as part of a network interface, such as, but not limited to being part of a network interface controller, or as a standalone unit between a communications interface of a host system and a connection to a network.

  • Patent number: 8826058
    Abstract: A Delay-tolerant Asynchronous Interface (DANI) is typically used to make the clock domains for reusable silicon intellectual property (IP) cores completely independent of each other. In fact, a DANI-wrapped IP core usually appears to its environment as if it were clockless. This property is necessary to address the variability in data transmission-time between source and destination. This variability is a result of increased lack of predictability in today's leading-edge manufacturing processes. A DANI wrapper can be applied to the IP core that is the source of data to be transmitted or it can be applied to the IP core that is the destination of that data. The transmission time over the route between source and destination may vary more than a single clock period.

  • Patent number: 8218448
    Abstract: The integrity of a control network for providing reliable communications between different entities is verified. Such a verified control network may be included in a device, system, or design library. The verification of a control network includes, but is not limited to: physically exercising the control network itself and/or its design via modeling, analysis, and/or applying or using other testing or design verification methodologies. For example, a Petri net model of the control network may be analyzed to verify that the control signals cannot be generated which could interfere with each other, that a deadlock condition cannot be reached, and that a control signal on an input port will result in a control signal on an output port, albeit possibly delayed.

  • Patent number: 7243255
    Abstract: Disclosed are, inter alia, instantaneously restartable clocks and their use. For example, instantaneously restartable clocks can be used to receive data from another independently clocked subsystem in a manner that removes the possibility of metastability errors. A restartable clocking signal generator, relying on oscillating signals typically generated by a continuous oscillating source, is used to generate a restartable clocking signal which can be asynchronously restarted in response to one or more control signals. In one implementation, an apparatus includes multiple independently clocked subsystems and a clockless sequencing network, with the clockless sequencing network being used to initiate the start of a restartable clock in order to reliably receive and process data between the independently clocked subsystems.

  • Patent number: 4071769
    Abstract: An improved method and apparatus for transaxial tomographic scanning of a patient. A scanning system is provided having a rotatably mounted X-ray radiation source/detector pair which orbits and radially scans the patient in the plane of orbit. The source provides a plurality of beams of radiation having axes in the orbital plane. The beams pass through the patient to an array of detectors each of which is aligned with one of the beams. Radiation intensity data is collected at predetermined orientations of each beam/detector pair as the assembly orbits about the patient. In a preferred embodiment the rotatably mounted source-detector pair is rotated as a unit through a preselected rotation angle .phi. about an axis effectively passing through the source. The axis and the source-detector pair connected to it are then orbited around the patient through an orbit angle .gamma. while maintaining the preselected rotation angle .phi.. The axis is orbited about an origin lying in the orbital plane.

  • Patent number: 4008400
    Abstract: A dual axial scanner in a transverse tomography system collects nonredundant data throughout one or more substantially 360.degree. orbital scan paths with uniform motion about a patient. A set of N X-ray beams scans the patient in a manner to allow collection of two sets of non-redundant data corresponding to a pair of 180.degree. scans in each 360.degree. scan. Overall time to conduct the study is decreased, and the number of required accelerations and decelerations of the assemblies is minimized.Adjacent beams of radiation are separated by an angle .alpha., which is one degree in the preferred embodiment to provide a radiation field of ##EQU1## degrees on either side of a center of the radiation field. The source and detector assemblies are positioned prior to the first orbit such that the field center is offset a distance D from a center of orbit lying in the orbital plane. The source and detector assemblies are mounted for rotation through a rotation angle .phi..sub.
