  • Publication number: 20200331971
    Abstract: Compositions and methods for controlling pests are provided. The methods involve transforming organisms with a nucleic acid sequence encoding an insecticidal protein. In particular, the nucleic acid sequences are useful for preparing plants and microorganisms that possess insecticidal activity. Thus, transformed bacteria, plants, plant cells, plant tissues and seeds are provided. Compositions are insecticidal nucleic acids and proteins of bacterial species. The sequences find use in the construction of expression vectors for subsequent transformation into organisms of interest including plants, as probes for the isolation of other homologous (or partially homologous) genes. The pesticidal proteins find use in controlling, inhibiting growth or killing Lepidopteran, Coleopteran, Dipteran, fungal, Hemipteran and nematode pest populations and for producing compositions with insecticidal activity.

  • Patent number: 10796761
    Abstract: Technology for a memory device is described. The memory device can include an array of memory cells and a memory controller. The memory controller can receive a request to program a memory cell within the array of memory cells. The memory controller can select a current magnitude and a duration of the current magnitude for a programming set pulse based on a polarity of access for the memory cell, a number of prior write cycles for the memory cell, and electrical distances between the memory cell and wordline/bitline decoders within the array of memory cells. The memory controller can initiate, in response to the request, the programming set pulse to program the memory cell within the array of memory cells. The selected current magnitude and the selected duration of the current magnitude can be applied during the programming set pulse.

  • Patent number: 10783966
    Abstract: Phase change material can be set with a multistage set process. Set control logic can heat a phase change semiconductor material (PM) to a first temperature for a first period of time. The first temperature is configured to promote nucleation of a crystalline state of the PM. The control logic can increase the temperature to a second temperature for a second period of time. The second temperature is configured to promote crystal growth within the PM. The nucleation and growth of the crystal set the PM to the crystalline state. The multistage ramping up of the temperature can improve the efficiency of the set process relative to traditional approaches.

  • Patent number: 10783345
    Abstract: Disclosed are a display unit, a display panel, a display device and an optical information storage device. The display unit comprises a photochromic thin film and an optical filter thin film on a side of the photochromic thin film. The photochromic thin film presents a colored state under an irradiation of a first preset light, and presents a transparent state under an irradiation of a second preset light. A wavelength range of the first preset light is different from that of the second preset light. The optical filter thin film is a one-way optical filter thin film that is substantially transparent to lights coming from a photochromic thin film side, and functions as an optical filter to lights coming from a side opposite the photochromic side to allow the first preset light to pass through and to reflect lights of other wavelengths.
