  • Publication number: 20210265281
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to integrated circuits which include various structural elements designed to reduce the impact of strain on the electronic components of the circuit. In particular, a combination of trenches and cavities are used to mechanically isolate the integrated circuit from the surrounding substrate. The trenches may be formed such that they surround the integrated circuit, and the cavities may be formed under the integrated circuit. As such, the integrated circuit may be formed on a portion of the substrate that forms a platform. In order that the platform does not move, it may be tethered to the surrounding substrate. By including such mechanical elements, variation in the electrical characteristics of the integrated circuit are reduced.

  • Patent number: 11102213
    Abstract: Current discovery mechanisms lack capabilities, such as capabilities related to permissions associated with a given registrant for example. In an example embodiment, a registrant of a service layer can communicate with a network node that hosts the service layer. The network node may receive a discovery request for a resource from the registrant. The discovery may request include various context. For example, the context of the discovery request may be indicative of an operation that the registrant intends to perform on the resource, a role that the registrant intends to assume if the registrant accesses the resource, a location in which the registrant intends to access the resource, or a subscription plan that the registrant intends to use if the registrant accesses the resource. Based on the context of the discovery request, the network node may determine whether one or more resources at the service layer satisfy the discovery request.

  • Publication number: 20210171582
    Abstract: Disclosed herein include methods, compositions, and kits suitable for robust and tunable control of payload gene expression. Some embodiments provide rationally designed circuits, including miRNA-level and/or protein-level incoherent feed-forward loop circuits, that maintain the expression of a payload at an efficacious level. The circuit can comprise a promoter operably linked to a polynucleotide encoding a fusion protein comprising a payload protein, a protease, and one or more self-cleaving peptide sequences. The payload protein can comprise a degron and a cut site the protease is capable of cutting to expose the degron. The circuit can comprise a promoter operably linked to a polynucleotide comprising a payload gene, a silencer effector cassette, and one or more silencer effector binding sequences.

  • Patent number: 10867647
    Abstract: A marching memory includes an alternating periodic array of odd-numbered columns (U1, U2, . . . , Un?1, Un) and even-numbered columns (Ur1, Ur2, . . . , Urn?1, Urn). Each of the odd-numbered columns (U1, U2, . . . , Un?1, Un) has a sequence of front-stage cells aligned along a column direction so as to store a set of moving information of byte size or word size. And each of the even-numbered columns (Ur1, Ur2, . . . , Urn?1, Urn) has a sequence of rear-stage cells aligned along a column direction so as to store the set of moving information, so that the set of moving information can be transferred synchronously, step by step, along a direction orthogonal to the column direction.

  • Publication number: 20200152247
    Abstract: A marching memory is disclosed having an array of memory units. Each memory unit has a sequence of bit level cells. Each bit-level cell has a transfer-transistor having a first main-electrode connected to a clock signal supply line through a first delay element, and a control-electrode connected to an output terminal of a first neighboring bit-level cell positioned at an input side of the array of the memory units, through a second delay element. Each bit-level cell also has a reset-transistor having a first main-electrode connected to a second main-electrode of the transfer-transistor, a control-electrode connected to the clock signal supply line, and a second main-electrode connected to the ground potential. Each bit-level cell also has a capacitor connected in parallel with the reset-transistor.

  • Patent number: 10050456
    Abstract: Methods and devices for connecting a mobile device with different data storage devices located either locally or remotely are provided. The device may apply one or more rules to create a hierarchical virtualization of the several data storage devices. The virtualization may then be provided to the user as a single, hierarchical file system. Further, a monitoring system may monitor the file system to determine if any new applications have been installed or if applications are currently being executed. If a connection is made to a secure network, the system may provide the information derived from the monitoring to the secure network. The secure network can then analyze the information to determine if any of the applications should be uninstalled from the device or should be stopped while the device is connected to the network.

  • Patent number: 9449696
    Abstract: A direct-transfer marching memory includes an array of memory units, each of the memory units having a sequence of bit-level cells so as to store information of byte size or word size, the information of byte size or word size is transferred synchronously, step by step, along a direction orthogonal to a direction of the sequence of bit-level cells, each of the bit-level cells encompassing an electron-storage region configured to accumulate cell-electrons. The cell-electrons accumulated in an electron-storage region in a subject memory unit is directly transferred to an adjacent electron-storage region, which is assigned in the next memory unit adjacent to the subject memory unit, the transfer of the cell-electrons is directly controlled by control signals, without using a combinational function of a logic gate circuit.

  • Patent number: 9361957
    Abstract: A computer system encompasses a processor (11) including a control unit (111) and an ALU (112) configured to execute arithmetic and logic operations synchronized with the clock signal, and a marching main memory (31), which embraces an array of memory units, configured to store information in each of memory units and to transfer synchronously with the clock signal, providing the processor (11) with the stored information actively and sequentially so that the ALU (112) can execute the arithmetic and logic operations with the stored information. The results of the processing in the ALU (112) are sent out to the marching main memory (31), but there is only one way of instructions flow from the marching main memory (31) to the processor.

  • Patent number: 9114354
    Abstract: A system and method to recover water from an ambient airstream. Dehumidification of the airstream is also achieved by removal of the water. A device of the system includes a chamber having a group of trays that hold respective amounts of liquid desiccant in each tray. A foam media absorbs the desiccant to increase an exposed surface of the desiccant to the airstream. Fans and valves are used to control airflow through the device. A charge cycle circulates air through the device to remove water vapor from the airstream. A subsequent extraction cycle removes water collected in the liquid desiccant by a condenser communicating with the chamber. A heat source adds heat to the chamber before and/or during the extraction cycle. A controller is used to integrate and manage all system functions and input variables to achieve a high efficiency of operational energy use for water collection.
