  • Patent number: 10285799
    Abstract: A stent graft (2) for placement in the thoracic arch of a patient has a first tubular body portion (6) with a first lumen therein for placement in the ascending aorta of a patient and a second tubular body portion (8) to extend along the thoracic arch and down the descending aorta. The second tubular body portion is of a lesser diameter than the first tubular body portion. There is a step portion (10) between the first body portion and the second body portion. The step portion is joined to and continuous with the first portion and the second portion. A first side of each of the first body portion, the step portion and the second body portion are substantially aligned so that there is a step (18) defined on a second side opposite to the first side of the body portion. There is an aperture (30) in the step portion and an internal tube (32) extending from the aperture towards the first body portion.

  • Patent number: 8038058
    Abstract: This invention provides a system and method for authorizing automated value transfers from an account available to users who do not have a pre-existing trust, business or financial relationship. In an embodiment of the present invention, a Sender at a first location purchases a PIN Card at a point of sale, such as a retail location or a bank teller. The Sender contacts an intended Recipient at a remote location and discloses a Transfer PIN associated with the PIN Card, as well as the amount being transferred, to that intended Recipient. The Recipient needs only the Transfer PIN and a Cash Card to receive the money transfer at a participating remote location. To receive the value associated with the PIN Card, the Recipient inserts or swipes the Cash Card at an ATM and enters the Transfer PIN. An authorization system then authorizes the dispensing unit to dispense that value amount.

  • Patent number: 5100507
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for processing an optical fiber to include an integral lens and a metallized outer coating. The fiber is first etched to include a tapered transition region and a thinned end region. The etched fiber is subsequently metallized and covered with a protective coating. A wet chemical etching technique is used to form an integral lens over the endface of the fiber. The protective coating is then stripped and any free metal is removed. The method allows for the fiber metallization to be in relative close proximity to the lens such that the fiber may be soldered into place near its endface, limiting any subsequent movement of the fiber relative to the aligned optical device.

  • Patent number: 4774635
    Abstract: Disclosed is a semiconductor package which permits coupling of semiconductor bond pads to I/O leads where a high density of connections is needed. Conductive fingers backed by an insulating tape are bonded to the ends of the fingers on a lead frame. The tape fingers are electrically coupled to the bond pads on one major surface of the semiconductor chip by wire bonding. In one embodiment, the opposite major surface of the chip is bonded to a paddle on the lead frame through an aperture in the tape for maximum heat dissipation.

  • Patent number: 4717066
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method of forming strong bonds between gold spheres and contact pads on semiconductor devices and the resulting product. The spheres are formed by establishing ball bonds with wire bonding techniques and then severing the wire. The wire material is a gold alloy including palladium which forms a weakened portion above the ball bond so that the wire can be easily broken off.
