  • Patent number: 9743714
    Abstract: Disclosed is a closure system used in combination in any of a variety of applications including clothing, for example as a footwear lacing system comprising a lace attached to a tightening mechanism. The lace extends through a series of guide members positioned along two opposing footwear closure portions. The lace and guides preferably have low friction surfaces to facilitate sliding of the lace along the guide members so that the lace evenly distributes tension across the footwear member. The tightening mechanism allows incremental adjustment of the tension of the lace. The closure system allows a user to quickly loosen the lace and inhibits unintentional and/or accidental loosing of the lace.

  • Patent number: 6875625
    Abstract: A microelectronic device is provided including an integrated circuit mounted to a substrate. A break through multiple conductive layers of the substrate corresponds to a break in the power planes of the integrated circuit. The breaks in the substrate and in the integrated circuit allow for a rotational burn-in of a first portion and a second portion of the integrated circuit.
