  • Patent number: 11462682
    Abstract: A magnetic device may include a layer stack including a work function structure, a dielectric layer, and a ferromagnetic layer, where the ferromagnetic layer is positioned between the work function structure and the dielectric layer. The work function structure is configured to deplete electrons from the ferromagnetic layer or accumulate electrons in the ferromagnetic layer. A magnetization orientation of the ferromagnetic layer is configured to be switched by a voltage applied across the layer stack or by a voltage applied across or through the work function structure.

  • Patent number: 11423209
    Abstract: An electronic device: displays an electronic form with a plurality of fields; detects an autofill input that corresponds to a field of the plurality of fields in the electronic form; and in response to detecting the autofill input, updates the electronic form to display fields that have been populated based on a user profile. If the autofill input is associated with a first category of information in the user profile, updating the electronic form includes populating at least two of the plurality of fields using information from the user profile that corresponds to the first category of information. If the autofill input is associated with a second category of information in the user profile, updating the electronic form includes populating at least two of the plurality of fields using information from the user profile that corresponds to the second category of information.

  • Patent number: 11422597
    Abstract: Thermal control of a multi-chip module in an operating environment is facilitated by predetermining separate thermal control points for multiple chips of the multi-chip module, with a first chip and a second chip having different predetermined thermal control points, and saving the predetermined thermal control points for reference by a thermal control of the multi-chip module in an operating environment. The thermal control monitors an operating temperature of the first chip, and compares the operating temperature of the first chip to the predetermined thermal control point of that chip. The thermal control further initiates a control action to control temperature of the first chip based on comparing the operating temperature of the first chip to the predetermined thermal control point of the first chip.

  • Patent number: 10849500
    Abstract: Various embodiments are directed toward a system and method for determining an orientation of an implantable medical device (“IMD”) and automatically adjusting a subcutaneous electrocardiogram (“ECG”) signal based on the determined orientation. The method can further include tagging generated SECG signals so as to identify whether a SECG signal had been generated from an implantable monitoring device with its first electrode being superior or inferior relative to its second electrode. Further embodiments can include automatically adjusting the orientation of the generated SECG signals to match that of a preferred orientation.
