  • Patent number: 10839734
    Abstract: Techniques, devices, and systems are provided that allow for driving a device such as an OLED in various pulsed modes in which a momentary luminance greater than an apparent luminance at which the OLED is to be driven is used. The use of one or more pulsed modes allows for the lifetime of the OLED to be extended and reduces image sticking. Pulsed modes are also provided that allow for color tuning of the device by activating different portions of one or more emissive areas of the device.

  • Publication number: 20200242062
    Abstract: Methods of operating a serial data bus divide series of data bits into sequences of one or more bits and encode the sequences as N-level symbols, which are then transmitted at multiple discrete voltage levels. These methods may be utilized to communicate over serial data lines to improve bandwidth and reduce crosstalk and other sources of noise.

  • Publication number: 20200214893
    Abstract: A myringotomy device includes a housing; an elongated tube extending from the housing; and a retractable cutting tool extendable through the elongated tube, the cutting tool comprising a blade. The cutting tool is configured such that when advanced, the blade of the cutting tool extends beyond a distal end of the elongated tube. The cutting tool is also configured such that when retracted, the blade is retracted into the elongated tube and a fluid conduit is created from the distal end of the elongated tube to the housing.

  • Publication number: 20200210341
    Abstract: Embodiments include methods, systems and non-transitory computer-readable computer readable media including instructions for executing a prefetch kernel with reduced intermediate state storage resource requirements. These include executing a prefetch kernel on a graphics processing unit (GPU), such that the prefetch kernel begins executing before a processing kernel. The prefetch kernel performs memory operations that are based upon at least a subset of memory operations in the processing kernel.

  • Publication number: 20200186243
    Abstract: A dark fiber dense wavelength division multiplexing service path design microservice (ddSPDmS) can provide a scalable self-contained meta-data driven approach for a flexible implementation of a dark fiber dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) service path design solution. The service plan design solution can be used as a standalone solution or integrated with a network management application. In order to manage a large volume of circuit designs, multiple microservices can accept application program interface (API) requests in a cloud environment. Permission can then be given to any application to use the API to make a call to the design and inventory. Additionally, metadata templates can be designed to support a node, a link, and/or a topology for the microservices.

  • Patent number: 10585801
    Abstract: Embodiments include methods, systems and computer readable media configured to execute a first kernel (e.g. compute or graphics kernel) with reduced intermediate state storage resource requirements. These include executing a first and second (e.g. prefetch) kernel on a data-parallel processor, such that the second kernel begins executing before the first kernel. The second kernel performs memory operations that are based upon at least a subset of memory operations in the first kernel.

  • Publication number: 20200022725
    Abstract: A device comprises a retractable shaft; a shaft biasing spring; and an actuator button. The retractable shaft is biased away from the actuator button by the shaft biasing spring. A magnetic attracting force is created between the retractable shaft and the actuator button upon actuation of the actuator button. Before actuation, a distance between the actuator button and the retractable shaft is great enough that the magnetic attracting force is less than a biasing force of the shaft biasing spring such that the retractable shaft is biased away from the actuator button. Upon actuation, the actuator button is depressed to make the distance between the actuator button and the retractable shaft sufficiently small such that the magnetic attracting force is greater than the biasing force of the shaft biasing spring to allow the retractable shaft to be biased towards the actuator button.

  • Patent number: 10468093
    Abstract: A method and system for a DRAM having a first bank that includes a first sub-array (SA) and a second SA. The first SA includes a first storage unit coupled to a first row-buffer in a first sub-channel (FSC) and a second storage unit in a second sub-channel (SSC). The second SA includes a third storage unit and a fourth storage unit coupled to a second row-buffer. The first SA is associated with a first row address (RA) and the FSC is associated with a first column address (CA) stored in the FSC. The second SA is associated with a second RA and the SSC is associated with a second CA stored in the SSC. The first and second CAs are used to select portions of data from the first and second row-buffers, respectively, for output to a data bus.

  • Publication number: 20190328504
    Abstract: A method for treating an aneurysm can include inserting a medical device partially in a first artery and partially in a third artery. The device can be expanded radially outwardly from a first, position to a second position to engage an inner surface of the first artery and an inner surface of the third artery, so as to maintain a fluid pathway through said arteries. Further, the device can be positioned such that, when the device is in the second position, a porous membrane of the device is located at a neck of the aneurysm.
