  • Patent number: 10902126
    Abstract: Provided are a computer program product, system, and method for verification of a boot loader program at a control unit to be provided to a host system to load an operating system. A stored value is generated from a cryptographic function applied to portions of a boot loader program stored in the storage. The boot loader program is read from the storage in response to execution of a boot loader request from the host system. The cryptographic function is applied to at least a portion of the read boot loader program to produce a calculated value. The host system is provided access to the boot loader program to use to load the operating system from the storage into the host system in response to the calculated value matching the stored value.

  • Patent number: 10898336
    Abstract: The present inventions relate to devices and methods that improve the positioning and fit of orthopedic reconstructive joint replacement stem implants relative to existing methods. For example, an embodiment of the device provides a stem component comprising proximal and distal body portions that can be configured to mimic a geometric shape of a central cavity region created in a bone of a joint for improving conformance and fixation of the stem component thereto. Further, another embodiment provides a system of stem implants that each have a unique medial offset for facilitating the matching of an implant to the geometry of a central cavity region of a bone. Additionally, an inclination angle of a resection surface of each of the implants in the system can remain constant or vary as a function of the medial offset.

  • Patent number: 10894551
    Abstract: The invention relates to a portable device for measuring lateral rail measurements under service to record and report excessive rail movement and angle differential to prevent a train from derailing. The device may be spring-loaded and light-weight. The device may include a microprocessor, sensors, and a display. The device may be installed on the rail. The device may sense an approaching train, automatically turn on the device, detect the train speed, and measure the angle differential, the real-time displacement, and the maximum/minimum displacement between the two rails while the train is operating over the rail at all speeds. The device measures and records the separation and angle differential of the rail to ensure the rail does not exceed separation that could derail the train.

  • Publication number: 20210011626
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, according to one approach, includes: receiving a first request to perform a write operation from a host, and performing the write operation. Metadata corresponding to the first request is sent to the secondary data storage device, and metadata corresponding to a second request to perform the write operation is received from the secondary data storage device, where the second request was received at the secondary data storage device from the host. The metadata corresponding to the first and second requests is used to determine whether the write operation has been mirrored across the primary and secondary data storage devices. In response to determining that the write operation has been mirrored across the primary and secondary data storage devices, a response is sent to the secondary data storage device which indicates that the write operation has been reconciled across the primary and secondary data storage devices.
