  • Publication number: 20200158702
    Abstract: A method for determining in a sample, by mass spectrometry, the presence, absence, or amount of one or more analytes is described herein. The run time is less than six minutes. The method includes subjecting the sample to an ionization source under conditions suitable to produce one or more ions detectable by mass spectrometry from each of the one or more analytes, wherein the one or more analytes are derivatized prior to ionization; measuring, in a single injection, by mass spectrometry, the amount of the one or more ions from each of the one or more analytes; and using the measured amount of the one or more ions to determine the amount of each of the one or more analytes in the sample.

    Abstract: Disclosed herein are two-wire communication systems and applications thereof. In some embodiments, a slave node transceiver for low latency communication may include upstream transceiver circuitry to receive a first signal transmitted over a two-wire bus from an upstream device and to provide a second signal over the two-wire bus to the upstream device; downstream transceiver circuitry to provide a third signal downstream over the two-wire bus toward a downstream device and to receive a fourth signal over the two-wire bus from the downstream device; and clock circuitry to generate a clock signal at the slave node transceiver based on a preamble of a synchronization control frame in the first signal, wherein timing of the receipt and provision of signals over the two-wire bus by the node transceiver is based on the clock signal.

  • Patent number: 10511676
    Abstract: A system for assessing a property damage claim uses an imaging device to capture images of a property that has reportedly been damaged by an incident. The system receives a property damage incident type, along with image processing criteria for processing images that are associated with the incident type. The system automatically processes the images according to the image processing criteria to identify one or more characteristics in the images and, based on the identified characteristics, determines whether certain claim processing criteria are satisfied. The claim processing criteria may help the system determine whether the property actually was damaged by the reported incident. The system will generate a command to process the property damage claim only if the system determines that one or more images show that the claim processing criteria are satisfied.

  • Publication number: 20190311777
    Abstract: A memory interface latch including a data NAND gate and a feedback gate can be created within an integrated circuit (IC). When a feedback node is driven low, the data NAND gate can drive an inverted value of a memory array bitline input to a data output of the memory interface latch within a time of one gate delay. A feedback gate can, in a functional mode, during one phase of a clock signal, drive the feedback node high and during the other phase of the clock signal, drive the feedback node to a complement the data output. The feedback gate can be also, in an LBIST write-through mode, drive the feedback node to the value of a WRITE_DATA input. The feedback gate can be also, in a fence mode, drive the feedback node to fixed logic value.

  • Publication number: 20190276237
    Abstract: A dispensation system having a hopper that is located remote to the remainder of the dispensation system. The hopper can be located remote from a delivery system and a conveyor or other transmitting device can connect the hopper to the delivery system. The hopper can therefore be located in an area that is more accessible or less valued than the area in which the products or objects are dispensed, allowing a more efficient product distribution system.
