  • Publication number: 20220003839
    Abstract: Illustrative methods and circuits to verify operation of phase shifters. One illustrative method includes: obtaining a first set of in-phase and quadrature components (I1,Q1) of a phase shifter output signal with a first setting; measuring a second set of components (I2,Q2) with a second setting, the second setting being offset from the first by a predetermined phase difference; and combining the first and second sets to determine whether their relationship corresponds to the predetermined phase difference. An illustrative transmitter includes: a phase shifter, an I/Q mixer, and a processing circuit. The phase shifter converts a transmit signal into an output signal having a programmable phase shift. The I/Q mixer mixes the output signal with a reference signal to obtain in-phase and quadrature components of the output signal. The processing circuit is coupled to the I/Q mixer implement the disclosed method.

  • Publication number: 20210244827
    Abstract: The present disclosure pertains to the use of an Anc80 viral vector that encodes a sphingolipid-metabolizing protein such as acid ceramidase to achieve expression of the sphingolipid-metabolizing protein in a mammalian cell or group of cells. Expression of the protein from the Anc80 vector reduces high levels of ceramide in the cell that lead to cell death or senescence.

  • Patent number: 11069507
    Abstract: A sample carrier for in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) has a dielectric substrate with a conductive layer that forms a coplanar waveguide. The coplanar waveguide has a first and second leads formed by the conductive layer. The first lead is between an adjacent pair of second leads and is spaced from the second leads by a respective gap. The coplanar waveguide is configured to transmit an electrical signal to a specimen held by the sample carrier, in particular, an electrical signal having a frequency in the radio-frequency (RF) regime (3 kHz-300 GHz), for example, up to 100 GHz. The sample carrier may be mounted to a TEM sample holder, which supports the sample carrier within a vacuum chamber of the microscope and provides electrical connection between the leads of the sample carrier and an RF source external to the vacuum chamber.
