  • Publication number: 20210407663
    Abstract: A method of delivering safe, suitable, and repeatable dosages to a subject for topical, oral, nasal, or pulmonary use and a device for droplet ejection includes a fluid delivery system capable of delivering a defined volume of the fluid in the form of droplets having properties that afford adequate and repeatable high percentage deposition upon application. The method and device include a housing, a reservoir disposed within the housing for receiving a volume of fluid, an ejector mechanism configured to eject a stream of droplets having an average ejected droplet diameter greater than 15 microns, the stream of droplets having low entrained airflow such that the stream of droplets deposit on the eye of the subject during use.

  • Patent number: 7424556
    Abstract: A method for sharing a buffer among multiple context engines, is provided. The method includes loading a memory element with a first data sequence. The method further includes loading a corresponding first context information to one of the multiple context engines. Subsequently, a direct memory access engine is loaded with the first data sequence dictated by the first context information. Then, the first data sequence is processed. While the first data sequence is being processed, the method includes loading the context engine with a next context information for a next data sequence contemporaneously with the processing of the first data sequence.

  • Patent number: 7373541
    Abstract: Broadly speaking, an apparatus and associated method of operation is provided for controlling alignment signal transmission in an electronic communication process. More specifically, a programmable control is provided for controlling transmission of alignment signals in either a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) or Serial ATA (SATA) communication process. The programmable control includes a counter operated to sequentially modify a count value. When the count value is equal to a programmed alignment trigger value, the programmable control is configured to generate and transmit an alignment signal through the initiator transceiver to the target transceiver. Thus, the apparatus and associated method of operation controls a rate at which alignment signals are transmitted in a SAS/SATA communication process.

  • Patent number: 7181562
    Abstract: A method and associated apparatus is provided for operating an electronic device in accordance with a wired endian format. More specifically, the wired endian format requires multi-byte values be maintained in transmit order. The wired endian format is defined to allow for interfacing with both a big endian format and a little endian format. Thus, a device operating in accordance with the wired endian format is able to interface with both a device operating in accordance with the big endian format (e.g., a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) device) and a device operating in accordance with the little endian format (e.g., a Serial ATA (SATA) device). Furthermore, since the device operating in accordance with wired endian format implements circuitry compliant with the wired endian format, duplication of circuitry to define separate data paths for interfacing with the big endian and little endian formats, respectively, is avoided.

  • Publication number: 20050028413
    Abstract: A sign for conveying information, having a plastic body, illuminating means such as light emitting diodes (LEDs) mounted within the body and a reflective coating applied on a surface of the body carrying information to reflect light emitted from the illumination means back into the body of the sign. The sing may have the LEDs mounted to face an inside surface of the sign capable of scattering light to a transparent surface to produce an illuminated area. Scattering the light form scattering surface will produce a substantially even intensity of light across the illuminated area of the sign after its transmission form the sign.
