  • Publication number: 20190206396
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed for enhancing the security of a user device such as a voice command device. A computing device associated with the user device may be configured to receive an indication of a trigger, such as a predetermined word or passcode. In response to receiving the indication of the trigger, the computing device may be configured to determine a verification signal marker and to cause transmission of the verification signal marker. The computing device may receive an audio input comprising a voice command and a detected signal marker and verify the voice command based on a comparison of the detected signal marker and the verification signal marker. In response to the verifying the voice command, the computing device may be configured to cause execution of an operation associated with the voice command such as tuning to a specific channel on a nearby set-top box.

  • Patent number: 10340811
    Abstract: A selectable increase in the common source inductance is obtained by a layout for a power module used for a half-bridge phase leg in an inverter for an electrically-driven vehicle. The power module comprises a pair of transistor dies connected to positive, negative, and AC conductive tracks for carrying bridge currents. The module includes a pair of gate drive pins and a pair of gate drive coils connecting a respective pin and die. The gate drive coils are disposed in a region between the positive and negative tracks containing a flux generated by the currents having a locally greatest rate of change. The coils may preferably be comprised of traces on an auxiliary printed circuit board incorporated in the module. The gate drive pins can be on the gate side or the emitter side of the transistor dies.

  • Patent number: 10341309
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to a system and method for cryptographically protecting data transferred between spatially distributed computing devices. An intermediary database may be used to facilitate the protected data transfer and/or record the data transfers. A first computing device may transfer, to the intermediary database, encrypted data that may be securely transferred to other computing devices. A second computing device may generate a GUI used to view data available from the intermediary database. Once data is selected by the second device, the second device may transfer a key (or other encryption mechanism) to the first device. The first computing device may encrypt the data using the received key and transmit the encrypted data to the intermediary database. The intermediary database may transmit the encrypted data to the second computing device, and the second computing device may decrypt and use the data.
