  • Patent number: 11205005
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for detecting vulnerabilities in microarchitectures. A non-limiting example of the computer-implemented method includes creating a simulation for execution on a model of a microarchitecture, the simulation including a set of instructions and a placeholder for holding a piece of secret data. The computer-implemented method executes the simulation a first time on the model of the microarchitecture with a first piece of secret data stored in the placeholder and stores a first output of the first executed simulation. The computer-implemented method executes the simulation a second time on the model of the microarchitecture with a second piece of secret data stored in the placeholder and stores a second output of the second executed simulation. The computer-implemented method compares the first output with the second output and provides an indication of a microarchitecture vulnerability when there is a difference between the first output and the second output.

  • Publication number: 20080024447
    Abstract: Example embodiments provide a mouse with a stabilizer. In particular embodiments, the stabilizer includes a U-shaped body which attaches to the bottom of the mouse so that the bottom surface of the U-shaped body forms a horizontal plane with the bottom surface of the mouse. In one embodiment, the U-shaped body includes a heel-rest portion and a pair of leg portions, one of which includes a thumb-rest and one of which includes a finger-rest. The leg portions define an opening for an opto-electric sensor such as a laser. In another embodiment, the stabilizer attaches to the rear of the mouse but does not extend forward to provide a thumb-rest or a finger-rest. In some embodiments, the stabilizer is fixedly attached or formed as part of the mouse, whereas in other embodiments it is detachable.

  • Patent number: 6976603
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a dual-chamber plastic container in an injection/extrusion/blow-molding operation, in which a container finish is first injection molded. The finish mold tooling is then moved axially upwardly as plastic continues to be extruded through extrusion tooling in which an orifice bushing surrounds a mandrel tip. The mandrel tip has a passage through which plastic is extruded to form a wall that divides the extruded tube into separate chambers. Blow molds are brought in from both sides to capture the extruded tube, and air is blown through a passage in the finish mold tooling to blow the tube chambers to the confines of the mold.

  • Publication number: 20010036664
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of inhibiting graft-versus-host disease in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) patients by using L-leucyl-L-leucine methyl ester (LLME) to eliminate selective cytotoxic T cells in donor lymphocyte infusions (DLI). LLME has been shown to inhibit GVHD in animal models by selectively inducing apoptosis in natural killer cells and cytotoxic T cells. The application of LLME to the human clinical HSCT situation, however, has been hampered by HSC toxicity when unseparated marrow is treated at the concentrations necessary to purge GVHD-inducing T cells prior to infusion. In the present invention, this problem is circumvented by the LLME ex vivo treatment of DLI administered following transplantation of T cell-depleted HSC. In this setting, the effects of LLME on HSC contained within the DLI are irrelevant for clinical outcome.

  • Patent number: 5719386
    Abstract: A high efficiency multi-image scanning method is disclosed. It involves the use of a special scanning window, or panel, containing a plurality of rectangular fields provided therein. The scanning window also contains a plurality of fiducial marks which associates each rectangular field, respectively, with a pre-defined location relative to the fiducial mark and a pre-defined scanning area. Prior to the scanning operation, a plurality of documents to be scanned are placed inside the rectangular fields. A pre-scan operation is performed to find and identify the fiducial mark. Then the scanner is moved to a selected rectangular field according to the information contained in the fiducial mark to scan an image having the pre-defined scanning area. Optionally, the method further contains the step of determining whether an image is present in the rectangular field, and if so, then adjusting the scanning area to compensate for any inadvertent misplacement of the image in the rectangular field.
