  • Publication number: 20210373781
    Abstract: A snapshot lookup table (SLT) and snapshot pointer structure(s) (SPSs) may be provided for a logical data unit (LSU), each SPS entry corresponding to an LSU data portion and a physical storage location at which data is stored for the data portion for a particular snapshot. A current lookup table (CLT) for a current time may be provided for an LSU, including an entry for each LSU data that points to a respective entry of an SPS. Each time a first write following the creation of a snapshot is made to an LSU data portion, the corresponding CLT entry may be updated to point to the SPS entry that was updated to point to an LSU track table entry. To create a snapshot, a snapshot lookup table (SLT) is created for each snapshot, and the contents of the CLT are copied to the newly created SLT.

  • Patent number: 11190271
    Abstract: In a monitoring system using optical fibers, an area to be monitored is divided into zones where each zone has fibers which create a change in a signal transmitted by the fiber in response to an event to be monitored. The fibers all communicate to a common monitoring system having a channel for each zone. The fiber of a second one of the zones communicates to the respective channel of the common monitoring system through a fiber passing through a first one of the zones so that the fiber and thus the second channel is also responsive to an event in the first zone zones. The invention provides a method of distinguishing between the separate zones where events have occurred by a Boolean analysis of the signals in the different channels.

  • Patent number: 11181230
    Abstract: An attachment mechanism for mounting an electronic device to a surface including a mounting plate configured to attach to the surface, the mounting plate having at least one projection, and a base configured to releasably couple to the mounting plate. The base may include a first biasing member, and a first arm pivotably coupled to the base and biased toward a first direction by the first biasing member, the first arm configured to interlock with the at least one projection when the base is coupled to the mounting plate. The base may further include a release mechanism coupled to the first arm such that actuation of the release mechanism when the base is coupled to the mounting plate in a secured engagement causes movement of the first arm in a second direction to disengage the first arm from the at least one projection to enable detachment of the base from the mounting plate.

  • Publication number: 20210355031
    Abstract: Described are compositions and methods for controlled strength development in a hydratable cementitious material, and more particularly to the use of polymerizable monomer components, which are initiated and activated by a redox pair which are mixed in controlled fashion, for enhancing non-hydration strength within the matrix of the plastic hydratable cementitious material before setting of the cementitious material begins. Exemplary applications include minimizing pressures on formwork for high fluid ready-mix applications, enhancing support and bonding properties for integrated concrete slab work and other sequential applications, or facilitating speedy 3D printing applications, among other unique possibilities.

  • Patent number: 11168364
    Abstract: Provided are compositions, methods and systems for determining the sequence of a template nucleic acid using a polymerase-based, sequencing-by-binding procedure. An examination step involves monitoring the interaction between a polymerase and template nucleic acid in the presence of one or more nucleotides. Identity of the next correct nucleotide in the sequence is determined without incorporation of any nucleotide into the structure of the primer by formation of a phosphodiester bond. An optional incorporation step can be used after the examination step to extend the primer by one or more nucleotides, thereby incrementing the template nucleotides that can be examined in a subsequent examination step. The sequencing-by-binding procedure does not require the use of labeled nucleotides or polymerases, but optionally can employ these reagents.

  • Publication number: 20210332890
    Abstract: A steering column assembly includes a housing, a shaft, a sensor, a motor, an elongate rod, a nut member, an actuator housing, and end stops. The shaft may be attached to an end of a steering wheel. The sensor may generate an electrical signal in response to rotation of the rotatably mounted shaft. The motor may apply a torque to the rotatably mounted shaft. The elongate rod may be configured to rotate with the rotatably mounted shaft and may include an externally screw-threaded portion having a nut member mounted thereon. The actuator housing may define a chamber to house the motor and a cavity which restricts rotation of the nut member with respect to the housing. The rotation of the elongate rod causes axial displacement of the nut member. The end stops may engage with the nut member.

  • Patent number: 11131227
    Abstract: A heating apparatus for a fluid flow system having a fluid conduit includes at least one heater element and a support member within the conduit. The at least one heater element includes a resistance wire, a sheath, and an electrically insulating material. The sheath has a closed profile shape that extends along a tortuous path through the container body and surrounds the resistance wire along the tortuous path. The insulating material is disposed about the wire between the wire and the sheath. The support member restricts movement of the at least one heater element relative to the fluid conduit. The support member defines a corrugated geometry that follows the tortuous path while contacting the sheath along a majority of a length of the sheath. The support member increases heat transfer from the at least one heater element to a fluid flowing through the fluid conduit.

  • Publication number: 20210281948
    Abstract: A system includes an audio transducer. The audio output of the transducer may be directed at an operator. The directionality of the audio output may ensure privacy in audio delivery. Further, the directionality of the audio output may reduce the potential for other nearby individuals to be disturbed by the audio output. A directed audio system may control the content of the audio output. The content of the audio output may be configured for applications in individual operator workspaces, multiple-operator common spaces, shared-use spaces or a combination thereof. The directed audio system may customize the audio output in accord with a stored audio profile for the operator.

  • Patent number: 10983813
    Abstract: Automatically identifying context-specific repeated transformations (such as repeated edit tasks) that are based on observation of the developer drafting or modifying code. As the developer modifies the code, the code passes through a series of states, one after the other. The computing system observes the series of states of the code. It is based on this observation that the computing system identifies repeated transformations of the code for potentially offering to continue performing the repeated transformations for the user. This alleviates the developer from having to manually perform the remainder of the repeated transformations.
