  • Patent number: 10549248
    Abstract: An exemplary compounding method of controlling a compounding device to prepare an admixture of at least two distinct material sources can include examining material source solutions for incompatibility of the ingredients and operating a first and a second pump to prevent one of the incompatible source solutions from entering a common flow path. The processing method can detect degradation of a fluid line by evaluating one or more of calibration error rate data, cumulative volumetric flow data, or cumulative pump operation data. The processing method can also selectively transfer a first group of source solutions using the first pump, receiving pump data from one or more sensors that sense actions of the pumps, applying fluid correction factors and calculating discrete pump movements, the pump movements being indicative of an amount of source solution displacement by a pump, and operating the pumps to selectively dispense the source solution amounts according to a preparation order.

  • Patent number: 10499281
    Abstract: Detection of an unbalanced network load and redistribution of network traffic to balance the network load is provided herein. Load balancing across different radios in the same sector of a cell site can be facilitated through detection of the unbalance network load and changes to one or more parameters can be made to rebalance the network load. After radios within a sector are more evenly balanced, network load balancing across sectors can be facilitated. The balancing can be performed to improve system performance, reduce a dropped call rate, as well as to achieve other benefits that can provide an improved user experience as compared to systems that do not attempt to balance the network load.

  • Patent number: 10499499
    Abstract: A programmable circuit includes an array of printed groups of microscopic transistors or diodes. The devices are pre-formed and printed as an ink and cured. A patterned hydrophobic layer defines the locations of the printed dots of the devices. The devices in each group are connected in parallel so that each group acts as a single device. Each group has at least one electrical lead that terminates in a patch area on the substrate. An interconnection conductor pattern interconnects at least some of the leads of the groups in the patch area to create logic circuits for a customized application of the generic circuit. The groups may also be interconnected to be logic gates, and the gate leads terminate in the patch area. The interconnection conductor pattern then interconnects the gates for form complex logic circuits.

  • Patent number: 10497672
    Abstract: Active LEDs have a control transistor in series with an LED and have a top electrode, a bottom electrode, and a control electrode. The active LEDs are microscopic and dispersed in an ink. A substrate has column lines, and the active LEDs are printed at various pixel locations so the bottom electrodes contact the column lines. A hydrophobic mask defines the pixel locations. Due to the printing process, there are different numbers of active LEDs in the various pixel locations. Row lines and control lines contact the top and control electrodes so that the active LEDs in each single pixel location are connected in parallel. If the LEDs emit blue light, red and green phosphors are printed over various pixel locations to create an ultra-thin color display. Any active LED may be addressed using row and column addressing, and the brightness may be controlled using the control lines.

  • Patent number: 10405142
    Abstract: Velocity-weighted analysis of UE location data is disclosed. UE velocity can be determined from the change in position and time. UE dwell can also be determined from the change in position and time. UE dwell and UE velocity can be inversely related. UE dwell an UE velocity can be correlated to a likelihood that an event occurrence related to a point of interest affects UE travel between a first and second location. A location of the point of interest can be determined to be in a region corresponding to a path between the first and second location. The region can be associated with the UE dwell and/or UE velocity, such that a probability of interaction can be determined for the event occurrence for the point of interest. The region can comprise a probable UE path based on historical UE data.
