  • Patent number: 10655143
    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, as probes for the isolation of other homologous (or partially homologous) genes. The insecticidal 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: 10632569
    Abstract: The present invention provides a laser cutting method, a display substrate and a display device. In the laser cutting method, the display substrate and the display device, as a cutting line is defined by two width defining dams on both sides of a region to be cut, the width of the cutting line can be adjusted by adjusting the distance between the two width defining dams. Thus, the width of the laser cutting line is controlled, and the effective use area of the substrate may be saved (and the material may be saved). Meanwhile, as the width defining dams are made of a laser reflective material, a laser beam irradiated onto the width defining dams is reflected without being absorbed by the width defining dams and thus transmitted to a corresponding region on the substrate. As a result, the generation of a carbonization region is avoided.

  • Patent number: 10630794
    Abstract: Multi-computing device network based cross-device conversion determination is described. A content selection computer server can identify cross-device conversions. A first computing device accesses third-party content via a first computer network connection. A second computing device accesses a webpage of the third-party content provider via a second computer network connection. The first and devices can be logged into a same online account. The content selection computer server can obtain, via a content tag that includes a script that executes on a webpage that includes the third-party content, data indicating that the first computing device accessed the third-party content. The selection computer server determines the conversion from the content tag and the second computing device having accessed the webpage.

  • Publication number: 20200111015
    Abstract: An enhanced prediction model utilizing product life cycle segmentation and historic prediction data for generating more accurate future failure rates. Input data is segmented into groups based on failure modes of a corresponding life cycle. A prediction model such as Weibull analysis is implemented for each segmented group. Historical prediction data is also segmented into groups. Prediction parameters for each group of segmented historical prediction data are compared with one another and the comparisons are then used to adjust the prediction parameters generated from the segmented groups of input data. Updated parameters for the input data are then output thereby generating a new future failure rate.

  • Patent number: 10576719
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to the field of display technologies, and in particular to an adhesive assembly, a flexible module, a display device and a manufacturing method of a flexible module. The adhesive assembly includes an adhesive base layer, which is arranged between two modules. The adhesive base layer includes a bonding region and a bending load buffer region, the bonding region being used for bonding the two modules, and a bending stress in the bending load buffer region being smaller than that in the bonding region. When two modules are bonded by such an adhesive assembly, the bending stress in the bending load buffer region and corresponding module portion is smaller than that in the bonding region and corresponding module portion for the whole flexible module, which reduces bending stress in the modules as a whole and facilitates spread and application of the flexible module.

  • Publication number: 20200035300
    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.
