  • Patent number: 9494514
    Abstract: In systems and methods for analyzing traces of airborne compounds, the air to be analyzed is circulated for a given length of time through a small-diameter analysis tube while lowering the temperature of the air at the entrance to the analysis tube. Condensation and deposits of compounds are formed on the inner walls of the analysis tube. A scraping liquid is circulated through the analysis tube to scrape off the deposits. The compounds in the deposits are concentrated at the front of this liquid. The front of the liquid is then analyzed to identify the compounds.

  • Patent number: 9460318
    Abstract: Various embodiments relate to an apparatus and associated method for a contactless front-end (CLF) managing a secure element (SE). When the SE receives a low power, a monitoring circuit in the CLF may monitor a power supplied to the SE. Upon detection of an under-voltage condition, the monitoring circuit may cause a management module in the CLF to react to the detected under-voltage condition with an SE management technique. The management module may enact the SE management technique through a separate communications interface connected to the SE. In some embodiments, the CLF may further comprise a register that maintains an under-voltage flag that is triggered when the monitoring circuit detects an under-voltage condition. The management module may reset the under-voltage flag and may use the triggering of the under-voltage flag one or more times to determine whether to react through use of a SE management technique.
