  • Publication number: 20240045259
    Abstract: An electronic device may include a projection display that has a high transparency when the display is turned off. The high off-state transparency may create the appearance of the display being invisible in the off-state, which may be desirable in certain electronic devices. The projection display may include an adjustable diffuser, a spatial light modulator that projects images onto the adjustable diffuser, a mirror that reflects the images from the spatial light modulator to the adjustable diffuser, and a light source that provides light to the spatial light modulator. The projection display may also include an adjustable opacity layer that is controlled based on detected ambient light levels. The projection display may also include an adjustable reflectivity layer. The adjustable diffuser and/or light source may be pixelated to increase contrast in the projection display.

  • Publication number: 20240045985
    Abstract: This specification provides example data query methods, apparatuses, and systems for a multi-party secure database. In an example computer-implemented method, a central node receives a data query request from a data requester, where the data query request relates to one or more pieces of target data stored at one or more data providers. The central node determines whether the data query request satisfies respective security requirements of the one or more pieces of target data. In response to determining that the data query request satisfies respective security requirements of the one or more pieces of target data, the central node processes the one or more pieces of target data to obtain result data; and sends the result data to the data requester. The central node can restrict query of the target data by the data requester based on the security requirement of the target data stored at the data provider.

    Abstract: A privacy film may have a light-blocking layer that is interposed between first and second transparent substrates. The light-blocking layer may have a plurality of opaque portions and a plurality of transparent portions. The opaque portions may be shaped to ensure light from the display is directed only to the primary viewer of the display. Each opaque portion of the light-blocking layer may extend along a respective longitudinal axis between the first and second transparent substrates. Privacy films used to cover curved displays may have opaque portions that extend along longitudinal axes that have different angles relative to the transparent substrates. Opaque portions in the edge of the privacy film may have longitudinal axes that are at non-perpendicular angles with respect to the transparent substrates. A privacy film for a curved display may also include a light-redirecting layer such as a prism layer or a liquid crystal layer.

  • Patent number: 11802132
    Abstract: Provided herein are bifunctional compounds that bind a target protein (e.g., a selected protein) and/or induce ubiquitination for degradation of the target protein. In particular, provided are compounds that bind a bromodomain or bromodomain-containing protein (e.g., BET proteins) or histone methyltransferases (HMTs, e.g., enhancer of zeste homolog 1 (EZH1), or FKBP12) and can promote its degradation by recruiting it to the ubiquitin receptor RPN13 (e.g., RA190), for proteasomal degradation. Also provided are pharmaceutical compositions comprising the bifunctional compounds, methods of treating and/or preventing diseases (e.g., proliferative diseases, cancers, benign neoplasms, pathological angiogenesis, inflammatory diseases, and autoimmune diseases) and musculoskeletal diseases, and methods of inducing the degradation of a target (e.g., a target protein) by recruiting it to the ubiquitin receptor RPN13 of the proteasome in a subject by administering a compound or composition described herein.

  • Patent number: 11786369
    Abstract: Disclosed in the present invention are a stent apparatus having a self-pleated skirt, a processing method therefor, a skirt pleating method, and a cardiac valve. The stent apparatus comprises a stent, and is further provided with a flexible skirt. The skirt comprises: an unfolded state, where the skirt extends axially and surrounds the periphery of the stent before release; and a stacked state, where the skirt is driven by deformation during release of the stent, and gathers and is stacked along an axial direction of the released stent to form an annular perivalvular leakage blocking part. The stent apparatus is further provided with a pull-wire which is merely threaded on the skirt, and the pull-wire may react to the radial deformation during the release of the stent to drive the skirt to enter the stacked state.

  • Publication number: 20230326380
    Abstract: An electronic device may include a lenticular display. The lenticular display may have a lenticular lens film formed over an array of pixels. The lenticular lenses may be configured to enable stereoscopic viewing of the display such that a viewer perceives three-dimensional images. To mitigate jaggedness in a curved edge of the active area, control circuitry may modify input pixel data for the display using dimming factors. Each brightness value of the pixel data may be multiplied by a corresponding dimming factor such that the curved edge has a smooth appearance. Each physical pixel in the display may have an associated perceived pixel that is based on an appearance of that physical pixel through the lenticular lens film. The perceived pixel may have a different footprint than its corresponding physical pixel. The dimming factors for boundary smoothing in the curved edges may be based on the perceived pixels.

  • Patent number: 11782190
    Abstract: A lenticular display may be formed with convex curvature. The lenticular display may have a lenticular lens film with lenticular lenses that extend across the length of the display. The lenticular lenses may be configured to enable stereoscopic viewing of the display. To enable more curvature in the display while ensuring satisfactory stereoscopic display performance, the display may have stereoscopic zones and non-stereoscopic zones. A central stereoscopic zone may be interposed between first and second non-stereoscopic zones. The non-stereoscopic zones may have more curvature than the stereoscopic zone. To prevent crosstalk within the lenticular display, a louver film may be incorporated into the display. The louver film may have a plurality of transparent portions separated by opaque walls. The opaque walls may control the emission angle of light from the display, reducing crosstalk. The louver film may be interposed between the lenticular lens film and the display panel.

  • Patent number: 11764098
    Abstract: When picking a die from an adhesive tape, a collet of a pick arm is positioned at a distance over the die, the die being mounted on a first surface of the adhesive tape. A flow of air is then generated onto a second surface of the adhesive surface opposite to the first surface for blowing the adhesive tape to displace the die towards a die-holding surface of the collet. Thereafter, the die is retained on the die-holding surface of the collet while the adhesive tape separates from the die.
