  • Patent number: 11097117
    Abstract: A medical device and method conserve electrical power used in monitoring cardiac arrhythmias. The device includes a sensing circuit configured to sense a cardiac signal, a power source and a control circuit having a processor powered by the power source. The control circuit is configured to operate in a normal state by waking up the processor to analyze the cardiac electrical signal for determining a state of an arrhythmia. The control circuit switches from the normal state to a power saving state that includes waking up the processor at a lower rate than during the normal state.

  • Patent number: 10078888
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure are directed toward systems and methods for combining aspects of a plurality of indexed images taken at different focus distances in order to generate a final image having objects at a variety of depths remain in focus. High frequency frames associated with each of the plurality of images can be generated, each high frequency frame being representative of the high frequency content of the associated image. The high frequency content in a plurality of regions in each of the plurality of high frequency frames can be analyzed to determine which regions include valid high frequency content. A final image can be generated comprising, for each of the plurality of regions, image data from the image having like index as the high frequency frame having the greatest valid high frequency content in that region.

  • Patent number: 9619249
    Abstract: A wall module user interface having a memory with a table driven structure. The structure may incorporate an objects table subject to a dynamic object table capable of rendering display objects such as labels or button icons based on arbitrary comparison conditions against the value of a variable at run time. Also, the structure may incorporate a screen actions table subject to a dynamic actions table to similarly determine an action of the user interface based on arbitrary comparison conditions against the value of a variable. An action may be, for example, going to a next screen, where the next screen is determined by the value of the variable at run time.

  • Patent number: 9239718
    Abstract: A system for upgrading firmware in multiple units or devices of a building control or automation system. A computer may have a tool that can reflash the firmware with an upgrade. The tool may reflash the firmware of multiple devices automatically without intervention of an operator. Devices having firmware that need an upgrade may be identified and classified as eligible for a firmware upgrade. Devices having firmware similar to firmware in other devices may be grouped with the latter devices for upgrading together, sequentially or in parallel, to simplify and expedite firmware upgrading of the devices. Firmware of devices in the field may be upgraded via a communication network or the like by the computer with the tool. The firmware upgrade, communications and/or associated activity associated with the upgrade may be proprietary and/or secured from public availability.

  • Patent number: 9141407
    Abstract: A system and approach for defining labels for values, such as ordinal numbers, of enumerated parameters in a wall module. Label and number pairs may be downloaded to a wall module as part of definitions of the parameters. The wall module may be a source of a list of labels to a user and then set each parameter to a value associated with a label selected by the user.

  • Publication number: 20150254799
    Abstract: A flexible fixed-content dynamically changeable wall module user interface having a memory with a table driven structure. The structure may incorporate an objects table subject to a dynamic object table capable of rendering display objects such as labels or button icons based on arbitrary comparison conditions against the value of a variable at run time. Also, the structure may incorporate a screen actions table subject to a dynamic actions table to similarly determine an action of the user interface based on arbitrary comparison conditions against the value of a variable. An action may be, for example, going to a next screen, where the next screen is determined by the value of the variable at run time.

  • Patent number: 8443110
    Abstract: A system for discovering devices on a common bus without direct communication. Each device on the bus has a unique identification. One of the devices or a computer may be a master or a host. The host may broadcast a request asking every device with an identification value in a particular range to respond. If no device or one device exists on the bus in this particular range, then there is no or one response, respectively. If multiple devices exist within the range, then multiple responses may be received by the host. In a case of multiple responses, the host may re-transmit its request to one or more half ranges. If multiple responses are again received, then the host may again re-transmit its request where the half range or ranges are again split in half. This approach of half-range reduction may be repeated until no more collisions occur.

  • Patent number: 7783938
    Abstract: Provided is a method and system for diagnosing a test system to determine whether a condition of the test system contributed to an undesirable measurement result. The method includes interrogating a device under test comprising at least one of transmitting an electric signal to energize a device under test by the test system and conducting a passive measurement that does not require the device under test to be energized to be performed to determine if the device under test satisfies a design parameter. The method further includes processing an output signal including at least one of a responsive electric signal transmitted from the device under test in response to being energized and a passive signal corresponding to the passive measurement, and comparing a value of a property of the output signal to a reference value. Responsive to the comparing, the method determines whether the value of the output signal is within an acceptable tolerance of the reference value.
