    Abstract: An in-line holographic microscope can be used to analyze on a frame-by-frame basis a video stream to track individual colloidal particles' three-dimensional motions. The system and method can provide real time nanometer resolution, and simultaneously measure particle sizes and refractive indexes. Through a combination of applying a combination of Lorenz-Mie analysis with selected hardware and software methods, this analysis can be carried out in near real time. An efficient particle identification methodology automates initial position estimation with sufficient accuracy to enable unattended holographic tracking and characterization.

  • Publication number: 20200132853
    Abstract: In a method for accurately estimating gait characteristics of a user, first parameters indicative of user movement, including a GNSS-derived speed and step count, are monitored. Values of the first parameters are processed to determine values of second parameters indicative of movement of the user. The processing includes using values of at least one monitored parameter to generate one or more inputs to an estimator (e.g., Kalman filter) having the second parameters as estimator states. At least two of the second parameters are collectively indicative of a mapping between step frequency and step length of the user. A graphical user interface may display values of at least one of the second parameters, and/or at least one parameter derived from one or more of the second parameters.

  • Publication number: 20190361718
    Abstract: Techniques for implementing 3DI API redirection for VDI desktops are provided. In one set of embodiments, a server system can intercept a call to a 3D API made by a 3D application running within a VM on the server system, where the VM hosts a desktop that is presented to a user of a client system. The server system can determine metadata associated with the call, where the metadata including a name of the 3D API and one or more input parameter values to the call, and can transmit the metadata to the client system. In response, the client system can reconstruct the call to the 3D API using the metadata and execute the call using one or more physical GPUs residing on the client system.

  • Patent number: 10310546
    Abstract: The present invention provides an arbitrary waveform generator based on instruction architecture. To deal with the feature that the instructions and waveform data of the AWG are coupled in the prior art, an instruction set based waveform synthesis controller is employed, and substitutes for the sequence wave generator in the present invention, i.e. an arbitrary waveform generator based on instruction architecture. Thus the time-sharing scheduling in reading the waveform synthesis instruction and the segment waveform data is realized, and the complexity of the hardware is reduced, so that the AWG in present invention can synthesize and generate a complex sequence wave rapidly and efficiently.

  • Patent number: 10254110
    Abstract: An optical metrology device determines physical characteristics of at least one via in a sample, such as a through-silicon vias (TSV), using signal strength data for modeling of the bottom critical dimension (BCD) and/or for refinement of the data used to determine a physical characteristic of the via, such as BCD and/or depth. The metrology device obtains interferometric data and generates height and signal strength data, from which statistical properties may be obtained. The height and signal strength data for the via is refined by removing noise using the statistical property, and the BCD for the via may be determined using the refined height and signal strength data. In one implementation, a signal strength via map for a via is generated using signal strength data and is fit to a model to determine the BCD for the via.
