  • Publication number: 20200241065
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the present disclosure describe devices, systems, and processes for testing capacitors. For an embodiment, a system includes a digital signal processor configured to execute non-transient computer executable instructions for testing a device over at least three operating modes. The operating modes may include a start-up mode, during which the digital signal processor is configured to control initial charging of the device to a desired initial condition, a charge mode, during which the digital signal processor is configured to control replenishment of electrical energy in the device, and a test mode, during which the digital signal processor is configured to control testing of the device in accordance with at least one testing protocol. The device may include an energy capture circuit configured to capture recovered energy arising during a first test cycle and to provide the recovered energy to the device for use during a second test cycle.

  • Patent number: 10555110
    Abstract: A proximity location system and method thereof for locating a communications device. A radio-frequency identification (RFID) proximity location tag is arranged in a proximity of the communications device and detected thereby. A proximity location key included in the RFID proximity location tag is acquired by the communications device and forwarded to a location information server. The location information is queried for location information associated with the proximity location key. Based on the location information, data transmitted by the communications device is routed to the appropriate receiver of the data. The location information is also provided to the receiver.

  • Publication number: 20180226543
    Abstract: A semiconductor light emitting device (100;200;300;400,400B,400C;500;600;700) may have a reflective side coating (120;220;320;420;520;620;720) disposed on a sidewall (118;215;315;415,435;515) of a semiconductor light emitting device structure. Such a device may be fabricated by dicing a semiconductor structure to separate a semiconductor light emitting device structure and then forming a reflective side coating (120;220;320;420;520;620;720) on a sidewall (118;215;315;415,435;515) of the separated semiconductor light emitting device structure.

  • Patent number: 8244674
    Abstract: A system is provided for locating peers having a desired expertise. User profile information is stored in a profiles database. A search engine indexes the profiles database and appends appropriate profile tags to this information. A peer relevancy algorithm searches for candidate peers among the indexed user profile information. Weights are assigned to candidate peers based on different categories of the indexed user profile information, and peer matches are selected based on the assigned weights. In order to provide matches that are most likely to accept a connection request, data is maintained as to which potential peers have a history of accepting requests to connect and which have a history of refusing to connect. Potential matches are biased to favor those that have a tendency to accept connection requests. Contact information of requester and recipients are not disclosed until the recipient accepts the requester's connection request.
