  • Publication number: 20190246957
    Abstract: A tissue-implantable sensor for measurement of solutes in fluids and gases, such as oxygen and glucose, is provided. The sensor includes: i) a detector array including at least one detector; ii) a telemetry transmission portal; iii) an electrical power source; and iv) circuitry electrically connected to the detector array including signal processing means for determining an analyte level, such as glucose level, in a body fluid contacting the detectors. The sensor components are disposed in a hermetically sealed housing having a size and shape suitable for comfortable, safe, and unobtrusive subcutaneous implantation allowing for in vivo detection and long term monitoring of tissue glucose concentrations by wireless telemetry.

  • Patent number: 9449649
    Abstract: A disk drive includes a disk that has a data side and an unread side. A first read head faces and is adjacent the data side. The disk drive also includes a cylindrical shroud wall that is substantially orthogonal to the unread side and that completely encircles the disk outer periphery. A radial spacing between the cylindrical shroud wall and the disk outer periphery nowhere exceeds 1 mm. The disk drive does not include any read head that faces and is disposed adjacent the unread side.

  • Patent number: 7342746
    Abstract: A disk drive includes a disk drive base and a spindle motor including a spindle motor hub, a spindle motor shaft and a stator. The hub includes an upper end and a lower end. The hub is rotatably coupled to the base via the shaft for rotating the hub about an axis of rotation. The lower end is disposed towards the disk drive base. The stator is attached to the base adjacent the lower end. A balancing ring is attached to the lower end of the hub about the shaft. The disk drive further includes a balancing weight attached to the ring. The weight is attachable to the ring through the disk drive base with the ring attached to the lower end of the hub. A method of balancing the hub is further provided using the ring and the weight.

  • Patent number: 4965476
    Abstract: An under-the-hub spin motor for a disk drive includes a stabilizer for supporting the outer diameter of the stator to stiffen the base of the spin motor. Stiffening the base in the region surrounding the shaft of the motor increases the resonant frequency of the spin motor, increasing the tolerance of the spin motor to applied vibrations. The stabilizer may be a ring formed integrally with the base plate of the disk drive or the mounting flange of the motor.

  • Patent number: 4308303
    Abstract: A flocked, foam-coated, fibrous-reinforced, water vapor permeable, bacterial barrier having the appearance of fabric, and being capable of filtering bacteria is disclosed. The barrier comprises a microporous polyolefin film coated on at least one surface with a foamed latex polymer, flocked fibers on the exterior surface of said foamed latex polymer, and a web of spunbonded fibers on the exterior surface of the flocked, foamed latex polymer.
