  • Publication number: 20220170861
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for analyzing single molecule and performing nucleic acid sequencing. An apparatus can include an assay chip that includes multiple pixels with sample wells configured to receive a sample, which, when excited, emits emission energy; at least one element for directing the emission energy in a particular direction; and a light path along which the emission energy travels from the sample well toward a sensor. The apparatus also includes an instrument that interfaces with the assay chip. The instrument includes an excitation light source for exciting the sample in each sample well; a plurality of sensors corresponding the sample wells. Each sensor may detect emission energy from a sample in a respective sample well. The instrument includes at least one optical element that directs the emission energy from each sample well towards a respective sensor of the plurality of sensors.

  • Patent number: 9525702
    Abstract: Methods, system, and media for determining similar malware samples are disclosed. Two or more malware samples are received and analyzed to extract information from the two or more malware samples. The extracted information is converted to a plurality of sets of strings. A similarity between the two or more malware samples is determined based on the plurality of the sets of strings.

  • Publication number: 20160173516
    Abstract: Methods, system, and media for detecting malware are disclosed. A network may be monitored for a configured time interval collecting all of or some of the network traffic or samples of the network traffic. Feature vectors may be extracted from the network traffic resulting in feature vectors. One or more machine learning models may be applied to the feature vectors producing a score. The score may indicate the presence of malware or the presence of a particular type of malware. One or more scores obtained by applying learning models may be fused by another machine learning model into a resulting score. A threshold value may be calculated to accompany a score indicating the likelihood that the traffic sample indicates the presence of malware and the likely effectiveness of planned remediation effort. An alert may be generated from the score and the threshold when the threshold is exceeded.

  • Patent number: 7220490
    Abstract: The low modulus polyimide adhesive compositions of the present invention contain a low modulus polyimidosiloxane polymer, a thermosetting substantially-non-halogenated epoxy (optionally including an epoxy catalyst), a plasticizer, an insoluble halogen-free flame-retardant filler, and optionally an adhesion promoter. The adhesive can be applied upon (or incorporated into) flexible circuits using a relatively low lamination temperature, generally no higher than 200, 190, 180, 175, 170, 165, 160, 155, or 150° C. The adhesive is generally resistant to unwanted curl even in cases where the adhesive polyimide and the base film polyimide have a coefficient of linear thermal expansions (measured between 50° C. and 250° C.) that differ by more than 10, 15, 20 25, or 30 ppm/° C.

  • Patent number: 4762273
    Abstract: An electronic water faucet is disclosed, including means for detecting the presence of an object near an outlet of said faucet and determining whether or not noise or reflected light is being sensed. The faucet includes a swivelable spout relative to a main body. Position sensing means for sensing the angular position of the spout are included. The angular positions which the spout can assume are designed to various zones, and those zones are programmed to be active or not active in an automatic mode of operation of the faucet. A rotary mixing valve for supplying and mixing hot and cold water using a cam and deformable seal is used to partially seal hot and cold water inlets.
