  • Patent number: 11458265
    Abstract: Aerosol delivery devices including mechanisms configured to deliver an aerosol precursor composition from a reservoir to an atomizer including a vaporization heating element to produce a vapor are disclosed. For example, a bubble jet head may be configured to dispense the aerosol precursor composition to the atomizer. The bubble jet head may be fixedly coupled to the atomizer. The bubble jet head may include a precursor inlet, an ejection heating element, and a precursor nozzle. The atomizer may include a vaporization heating element.

  • Patent number: 11432805
    Abstract: Vector Doppler Imaging (VDI) improves on conventional Color Doppler Imaging (CDI) by giving speed and direction of blood flow at each pixel of a display generated by a computing system. Multiple angles of Plane wave transmissions (PWT) via an ultrasound transducer conveniently give projected Doppler measurements over a wide field of view, providing enough angular diversity to identify velocity vectors in a short time window while capturing transitory flow dynamics. A fast, aliasing-resistant velocity vector estimator for PWT is presented, and VDI imaging of a carotid artery with a 5 MHz linear array is shown using a novel synthetic particle flow visualization method.

  • Publication number: 20210406581
    Abstract: An example method, apparatus, and computer-readable storage medium are provided to predict high-dynamic range (HDR) lighting from low-dynamic range (LDR) background images. In an example implementation, a method may include receiving low-dynamic range (LDR) background images of scenes, each LDR background image captured with appearance of one or more reference objects with different reflectance properties; and training a lighting estimation model based at least on the received LDR background images to predict high-dynamic range (HDR) lighting based at least on the trained model. In another example implementation, a method may include capturing a low-dynamic range (LDR) background image of a scene from an LDR video captured by a camera of the electronic computing device; predicting high-dynamic range (HDR) lighting for the image, the predicting, using a trained model, based at least on the LDR background image; and rendering a virtual object based at least on the predicted HDR lighting.

    Abstract: An integrated circuit package can contain a semiconductor die and provide electrical connections between the semiconductor die and additional electronic components. The integrated circuit package can reduce stress placed on the semiconductor die due to movement of the integrated circuit package due to, for example, temperature changes and/or moisture levels. The integrated circuit package can at least partially mechanically isolate the semiconductor die from the integrated circuit package.

  • Patent number: 10800649
    Abstract: Suspended microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices including a stack of one or more materials over a cavity in a substrate are described. The suspended MEMS device may be formed by forming the stack, which may include one or more electrode layers and an active layer, over the substrate and removing part of the substrate underneath the stack to form the cavity. The resulting suspended MEMS device may include one or more channels that extend from a surface of the device to the cavity and the one or more channels have sidewalls with a spacer material. The cavity may have rounded corners and may extend beyond the one or more channels to form one or more undercut regions. The manner of fabrication may allow for forming the stack layers with a high degree of planarity.

  • Patent number: 10631119
    Abstract: An architecture is provided that can facilitate and/or transmit notifications based upon device presence techniques in connection with a wireless communications network. For example, when certain mobile devices register with a particular network entity (e.g., a femtocell) that services a particular target location (e.g., place of residence), then such registration can be leveraged to indicate presence at the target location. Accordingly, notifications can be delivered to custodian devices that indicate the presence information if certain predetermined conditions or criteria are satisfied.

  • Publication number: 20190230996
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to aerosol delivery devices. The aerosol delivery devices include mechanisms configured to deliver an aerosol precursor composition from a reservoir to an atomizer including a heating element to produce a vapor. A pressure controller may control dispensing of the aerosol precursor composition from the reservoir based on a pressure differential between a first pressure within the reservoir and a second pressure proximate the atomizer. The first pressure within the reservoir may be substantially equal to atmospheric pressure. Alternatively, the first pressure within the reservoir may be greater than atmospheric pressure.

  • Patent number: 10346463
    Abstract: A visual query is received from a client system, along with location information for the client system, and processed by a server system. The server system sends the visual query and the location information to a visual query search system, and receives from the visual query search system enhanced location information based on the visual query and the location information. The server system then sends a search query, including the enhanced location information, to a location-based search system. The search system receives and provides to the client one or more search results to the client system.

  • Patent number: 10298943
    Abstract: In video coding, where differences between input picture values and picture prediction values are transformed in a block based transform, the differences are formed in a series of parallel steps. A first step conducted in parallel upon a first subset of pixels uses prediction values based wholly on previously processed blocks. This first subset can include anchor pixels which are not contiguous with any previously processed block. A second step conducted in parallel upon a second subset includes pixels which are predicted from pixels of the first subset.
