  • Patent number: 11134862
    Abstract: Methods may be provided to identify a medical implant from a plurality of medical implants to be fixed to an anatomical surface. Dimensional parameters for each of the plurality of medical implants may be provided, and dimensional parameters corresponding to the anatomical surface may be provided. The dimensional parameters for each of the plurality of medical implants may be compared with the dimensional parameters corresponding to the anatomical surface, and one of the medical implants may be selected from the plurality of medical implants based on comparing the dimensional parameters for each of the plurality of medical implants with the dimensional parameters corresponding to the anatomical surface. An identification of the medical implant selected from the plurality of medical implants may be provided through a user interface. Related devices and computer program products are also discussed.

  • Patent number: 10100643
    Abstract: A gas turbine engine including a rotor and a cooling fluid delivery system is presented. The rotor includes a disc and a plurality of blades extending radially therefrom. Each blade has a suction side and a pressure side and includes a shank, a platform and a main portion, the main portion being radially outward of the shank and separated therefrom by the platform. At least one cavity is defined, each radially inward of the platforms and between a suction side of the shank of one blade and a pressure side of the shank of an adjacent blade. The rotor includes at least one damper, the damper including a main body in contact with at least one blade and a deflector nose. The deflector nose extends from the main body into the cavity.

  • Publication number: 20170032991
    Abstract: A method includes identifying a wafer position for a plurality of die on a wafer, storing the wafer position for each of the plurality of die in a database, dicing the wafer into a plurality of singulated die, positioning each of the singulated die in a die position location on a tray, and storing the die position on the tray for each of the singulated die in the database. The database includes information including the wafer position associated with each die position. The tray is transported to a processing tool, and at least one of the plurality of singulated die is removed from the die position on the tray and processed in the processing tool. The processed singulated die is replaced in the same defined location on the tray that the singulated die was positioned in prior to the processing. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 9426914
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide for a device including a film having a shape that defines an interior region. The device may also include one or more electronic components disposed within the interior region of the film, and a hardened thermo-set resin within the interior region, wherein the thermo-set resin encompasses the electronic components and substantially fills the interior region of the film. In one example, printed content is coupled to a surface of the film. In addition, the thermo-set resin may include an additive that is configured to absorb and distribute heat generated by the electronic components.

  • Publication number: 20140021288
    Abstract: A method of launching a powered unmanned aerial vehicle at an altitude of at least 13,000 m, the method comprising lifting the vehicle by attachment to a lighter-than-air carrier from a substantially ground-level location to an elevated altitude, causing the vehicle to detach from the carrier while the velocity of the vehicle relative to the carrier is substantially zero, the vehicle thereafter decreasing in altitude as it accelerates to a velocity where it is capable of preventing any further descent and can begin independent sustained flight.
