  • Publication number: 20190181768
    Abstract: A system including a converter is disclosed. The converter includes a first switch having one or more first controllable switches coupled in parallel across at least one diode. A first controlling unit is operatively coupled to the converter. The first controlling unit is configured to determine a temperature of the one or more first controllable switches. The first controlling unit is further configured to compare the determined temperature of the one or more first controllable switches with a transition temperature at which a first power loss of the one or more first controllable switches is equal to a second power loss of the at least one diode and control a switching state of the one or more first controllable switches based on the comparison of the determined temperature with the transition temperature.

  • Patent number: 10311483
    Abstract: Various technologies described herein pertain to prefetching content units. A prefetch request is transmitted to a server from a client device. The prefetch request includes data indicative of probabilities of slots for content units being available during an upcoming time period. The probabilities can be based on likely interaction with application(s) executed by the client device during the upcoming time period. Prefetched content units assigned to the client device for the upcoming time period can be received from the server responsive to the prefetch request. One or more of the prefetched content units can be served for display on a display screen of the client device during execution the application(s). Further, statuses of the prefetched content units can be monitored, and information that specifies a subset of the prefetched content units that are unlikely to be displayed on the display screen prior to corresponding deadlines for expiration can be transmitted.

  • Publication number: 20190158349
    Abstract: A Multi-Homing System is equipped with an Adaptive JSP Access Cloud State Detection apparatus (ACSD) that improves the reliability of digital connections, such as a Computer Premises Network and the Internet, in which such connections are made by connecting through a multiplicity of ISP Access Clouds (links). Reliability is improved by using data elements of Internet Protocol datagrams that are exchanged between the ISP Access Clouds and the CPN without creating additional data traffic. Data Elements from each ISP Access Cloud are used by processing functions of the by the ACSD to test for conditions that indicate that it may be in a DOWN status, when a DOWN status is suspected, other functions in the ACSD initiate transmission of a set of PROBE packets that can determine if the suspect link is actually DOWN or merely giving a response that would be interpreted as DOWN by prior art methods.

  • Publication number: 20190141575
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for enabling a mesh network node to switch from a base station role to a user equipment role relative to a second mesh network node, and vice versa. By switching roles in this manner, the mesh network node may be able to benefit from increased uplink or downlink speed in the new role. This role reversal technique is particularly useful when using wireless protocols such as LTE that are asymmetric and allow differing throughput on uplink and downlink connections. Methods for determining whether to perform role reversal are disclosed, and methods for using role reversal in mesh networks comprising greater than two nodes are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10262910
    Abstract: Methods and systems for using a time-series of spectra to identify endpoint of an etch process. One method includes accessing a virtual carpet that is formed from a time-series of spectra for the etch process collected during a training operation. And, running a fabrication etch process on a fabrication wafer, such that while the fabrication etch process is performed portions of a carpet defined from a time-series of spectral is generated for the fabrication etch process. Then, comparing the portions of the carpet of the fabrication etch process to the virtual carpet. End pointing is processed for the fabrication etch process when said comparing indicates that a desired metric has been reached for the fabrication wafer. In one example, said portions of the carpet include a current frame of captured spectra and at least one previous frame of captured spectra.

  • Publication number: 20190107515
    Abstract: A method and a device for the near-surface, non-destructive inspection by means of ultrasound of a rotationally symmetric workpiece having a diameter that changes from section to section are provided. The method and device are based on the insonification of an ultrasonic test pulse into the workpiece at a defined insonification angle and the subsequent recording of an ultrasonic echo signal from the workpiece. Echo signals that trace back to a near-surface region ROI of the workpiece are identified and evaluated. Then, a graphic representation of the surface of the workpiece is generated.

  • Publication number: 20190052533
    Abstract: Implementations generally relate methods, systems, and computer readable media for discovery of an open network adapter. In some implementations, a method includes receiving, by a software-defined network (SDN) controller, a notification of an open networking adapter (ONA) establishing a connection with a switch, the ONA having an address associated therewith. The method further includes identifying the switch based on a lookup of the address of the ONA in forwarding tables of a neighboring switch of the SDN controller. The method further includes applying a service profile configuration to a port of the switch where the ONA is connected.

  • Publication number: 20190026434
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media are provided for computer-based activity tracking within electronic medical records. Generally a user (e.g., a medical professional) logs in to electronic medical record software and performs various actions in an electronic medical record. Corresponding audit events are logged in an events database. A reviewer (e.g., in the electronic medical record software) requests to view a selected user's activity history comprising the actions performed by the user in one or more electronic medical records. For example, a user can request to view his or her own activity history, or a manager can request to view a reportee's activity history. The system determines whether the reviewer is authorized to view the selected user's activity history, and if the reviewer is authorized, a user activity component (e.g.
