  • Publication number: 20210228366
    Abstract: A modular augment cone system and methods of implanting the modular augment cone system. The system includes a main body cone a first cutout in the cone wall, and including a proximal end, a distal end, and a cone wall extending between the proximal and distal ends. A portion of the cone wall proximal to the first cutout includes an attachment feature. A first augment cone is positionable in the first cutout, the first augment cone including an attachment feature configured to mate with the attachment feature of the cone wall to attach the first augment cone into the first cutout. The main body cone can include a second cutout in the cone wall. In such systems, the modular augment cone system can include a second augment cone configured to mate with an attachment feature of the cone wall to attach the second augment cone into the second cutout.

  • Patent number: 11071839
    Abstract: A respiratory mask assembly for delivering breathable gas to a patient includes a frame and a cushion. The cushion has a non-face contacting portion structured to be connected to the frame, a face-contacting portion structured to engage the patient's face, and a central portion that interconnects the non-face contacting portion and the face contacting portion. The frame may be structured to allow a forehead support to assume multiple positions, to compensate for replacement cushions that may have a different profile, shape or size. The cushion is structured to compensate for variations in strap tension, treatment pressure and/or movement of the patient. Headgear may be provided with a strap assembly in which one or more straps is provided with selectively adjustable elasticity or extensibility that may be automatically changed in dependence of treatment pressure and/or treatment type.

  • Patent number: 9489504
    Abstract: A method is provided for using obtaining a reproducible device identifier from a physically unclonable function. An authentication device may receive a first physically unclonable function (PUF) dataset from the electronic device, the first PUF dataset including characteristic information generated from a physically unclonable function in the electronic device. The authentication device may then identify a pre-stored PUF dataset corresponding to the electronic device. Authentication of the electronic device may be performed by correlating the pre-stored PUF dataset and the first PUF dataset for the electronic device, wherein such correlation is based on a pattern or distribution correlation the pre-stored PUF dataset and the first PUF dataset. Because such correlation is performed on datasets, and not individual points, systematic variations can be recognized by the correlation operation leading to higher correlation than point-by-point comparisons.

  • Patent number: 5680052
    Abstract: A testing apparatus for testing a sample fault indicator (11) of the type which has a current sensor (15), an automatic reset, an inrush restraint feature, and an indicator display (13) that are widely used by electric utilities for fault location of overhead and underground distribution power circuits. The first objective of the testing apparatus is to test the predetermined current threshold level of the sample fault indicator (11) which is specified by the producer. It provides for the simulation of a fault current condition by means of a pulse driver circuit (99). The output response of properly working fault indicator (11) under this test will cause the indicator display (13) to register a fault state. The second object provided by this apparatus is to test the automatic resetting of the sample fault indicator (11). It provides for simulating a reset signal (105) for a controlled duration of time.

  • Patent number: 4667286
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for transferring data between a disk and a CPU is disclosed comprising a pair of toggling header buffers and a pair of toggling data buffers. In operation, data is transferred between a sector on a disk and one of the data buffers under the control of one of the header buffers. While the data in the header buffer is being transferred between the data buffer and a CPU, data is transferred between an adjacent sector on the disk and the other data buffer under the control of the other header buffer. The rate of transfer of data between the data buffer and the CPU is higher than the rate of transfer of the data between the disk and the other data buffer. This provides sufficient time to check the data transferred from and to the CPU for errors and to address a new sector on the disk prior to the completion of the data transfer of the previous sector between the disk and the data buffer.

  • Patent number: 4667326
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for generating a check sum and a syndrome for detecting errors in a series of bytes comprising a plurality of stages, each stage comprising a plurality of networks of exclusive OR gates, a memory and an exclusive OR gate for exclusively ORing the outputs of the networks resulting from a byte transmitted therethrough with the results stored in a memory in a previous stage due to a previous byte. Each of the stages and the networks therein correspond to a term in a Reed-Solomon polynomial. Except for differences in the number and construction of the networks in each stage, each of the stages are substantially identical and can be selectively used for detecting single and double burst errors.
