  • Patent number: 10185296
    Abstract: A control system to locate a motorized entity on a display having an electronic device with a display is provided. The electronic device may include a microphone and an electronic device integrated circuit with a set of entity locating software instructions with a capability to generate and display a sequence of pixels in a location pattern, and to further receive an audio output detection signal from the microphone. The entity may include a speaker and one or more sensors in communication with an entity integrated circuit including a set of entity control software instructions. The one or more sensors may be capable of detecting pixels and to send a pixel detection signal to the entity integrated circuit upon detection thereof.

  • Patent number: 10103850
    Abstract: A method and apparatus of a network element that keeps a port of the network element up in a split port configuration is described. In an exemplary embodiment, the network element receives an indication of a link loss on a receive interface of the port, wherein the port includes the receive interface and a transmit interface. In addition, the receive interface is coupled to a first device over a first link, and the transmit interface is coupled to a second device over a second link. Furthermore, the network element performs an operation of the port such that a link coupled to a transmit interface of the port remains up. The network element additionally suppresses receive faults that are received on the receive interface.

  • Patent number: 9847922
    Abstract: A system, method, and associated apparatus for continuous measurement of transit latency in individual data switches and multi-device topologies is disclosed, which enables an accurate measure of real-word latency on production networks by applying a time stamp to production network data on ingress to a network element and determining a traversal time by capturing the time stamp on egress from the network element. In one embodiment, time stamps applied to network data are removed on egress to avoid undesirable packet growth across multiple hops of the network. Timing information on data flow through the data/forwarding plane of each network node of a production network can be gathered without the use of test harnesses, injected network data, or dedicated ports.

  • Patent number: 9636597
    Abstract: A toy character includes a body, a first propeller assembly, a second propeller assembly, and a motor. The body extends in a longitudinal direction and has a longitudinal axis. The first propeller assembly is mounted to the body to rotate in a first direction about the longitudinal axis and positioned at a mid-portion of the body. The second propeller assembly is mounted to the body to rotate in a second direction about the longitudinal axis and spaced apart from the first propeller assembly. The second propeller assembly is mechanically linked to the first propeller assembly for counter-rotation in the second direction when the first propeller assembly rotates in the first direction. The motor is in communication with the first and second propeller assemblies to drive rotations in the first direction and the second direction.

  • Patent number: 5321604
    Abstract: A process is disclosed for merging promotional information, based on multiple requests and relating to different promotions, into a single stream for the printing and mailing of coupons, checks or other promotional items. The requests relating to a particular promotion are matched with an associated promotion control record, with one or more promotions similarly associated with an account control record in the, case of preparing checks. Prior to printing, individual data entries for various promotions are combined, and sorted in a sequence predetermined for qualification for various postal rate classifications, thus to minimize the cumulative cost of mailing the entries. Pertinent information associated with each entry is printed on sheets of card stock, each sheet separable into four individual segments to provide four checks or coupons.
