  • Publication number: 20210277243
    Abstract: A photocurable silicone composition, a method of forming a coating from such compositions, and an article comprising a coating formed from such compositions and/or methods are shown and described herein. The photocurable silicone composition comprises (i) a vinyl functional polysiloxane; (ii) a hydride functional polysiloxane; (iii) a photoactive catalyst; and (iv) an acid-anhydride functional polysiloxane. The composition and method can be employed to process thin coatings onto paper and film substrates followed by exposure to actinic radiation at ambient conditions of temperature and atmosphere for manufacture of release liners.

  • Patent number: 11108381
    Abstract: A digital signal processor is designed to channelize an input signal, and includes a channelizer circuit and a plurality of tuning modules. The channelizer circuit is designed to receive an input signal having a first bandwidth and to channelize the input signal into a first set of channels each having a bandwidth smaller than the first bandwidth as a first output signal and to channelize the input signal into a second set of channels having a bandwidth smaller than the first bandwidth as a second output signal. The plurality of tuning modules are designed to receive one or more channels from the first output signal or the second output signal and to further downsample the one or more channels to a user-defined bandwidth at a user-defined center frequency. Each of the plurality of tuning modules include a plurality of FIR filter blocks and a memory having a plurality of FIR filter coefficients.

  • Publication number: 20210263624
    Abstract: Disclosed is an improved systems and method for navigation and manipulation of browser windows in a 3D mixed reality environment. An improved approach is provided to view a user's windows, regardless of the current location for the user relative to one or more previously-opened windows. A method for displaying windows in a computing environment includes receiving an instruction to select multiple open windows. The method also includes retrieving information for the multiple open windows, where the multiple open windows are associated with different physical locations. The method further includes displaying a representation of the multiple open windows in a single user interface. Moreover, the method includes upon receiving a selection of a selected window of the multiple open windows, loading the selected window into a foreground of a field of view for a user.

  • Patent number: 11087563
    Abstract: Described are improved systems and methods for navigation and manipulation of interactable objects in a 3D mixed reality environment. Improved systems and methods are provided to implement physical manipulation for creation and placement of interactable objects, such as browser windows and wall hangings. A method includes receiving data indicating a selection of an interactable object contained within a first prism at the start of a user interaction. The method also includes receiving data indicating an end of the user interaction with the interactable object. The method further includes receiving data indicating a physical movement of the user corresponding to removing the interactable object from the first prism between the start and the end of the user interaction. Moreover, the method includes creating a second prism to contain the data associated with the interactable object at the end of the user interaction with the interactable object.

  • Publication number: 20210174596
    Abstract: A cross reality (XR) system that renders virtual content generated by executing native mode applications may be configured to render web-based content using components that render content from native applications. The system may include a Prism manager that provides Prisms in which content from executing native applications is rendered. For rendering web based content, a browser, accessing the web based content, may be associated with a Prism and may render content into its associated Prism, creating the same immersive experience for the user as when content is generated by a native application. The user may access the web application from the same program launcher menu as native applications. The system may have tools that enable a user to access these capabilities, including by creating for a web location an installable entity that, when processed by the system, results in an icon for the web content in a program launcher menu.
