  • Publication number: 20200249724
    Abstract: This is directed to connecting two or more elements using an intermediate element constructed from a material that changes between states. An electronic device can include one or more components constructed by connecting several elements. To provide a connection having a reduced or small size or cross-section and construct a component having high tolerances, a material can be provided in a first state in which it flows between the elements before changing to a second state in which it adheres to the elements and provides a structurally sound connection. For example, a plastic can be molded between the elements. As another example, a composite material can be brazed between the elements. In some cases, internal surfaces of the elements can include one or more features for enhancing a bond between the elements and the material providing the interface between the elements.

  • Publication number: 20200232203
    Abstract: A structural assembly comprises a first extruded component having a length and a constant cross section. The cross section defines a first cavity and a second cavity separated by a wall of the first extruded component. An aperture extends through the wall between the first and second cavities. Second and third extruded components have respective lengths and constant cross sections. A first connector is positioned within the first cavity of the first extruded component and extends into the second extruded component. A second connector is positioned within the second cavity of the first extruded component and extends into the third extruded component. A fastener extends through the first connector, the aperture, and the second connector and is configured to secure the first and second connectors to the first extruded component.

  • Publication number: 20200233283
    Abstract: An illumination system is provided for an optical system that includes an imaging device for acquiring an image of a target, for decoding of a symbol or other analysis. The illumination system can include a first light source configured to provide illumination of a first wavelength, a second light source configured to provide illumination of a second wavelength that is different from the first wavelength. The light sources can be controlled for operations that include: illuminating the target with the first and second light sources simultaneously for acquisition of the image of the target; and altering an illumination output of at least one of the first light source or the second light source, while maintaining non-zero illumination output for at least one of the first light source or the second light source, to indicate a status of the optical system.

  • Publication number: 20200191774
    Abstract: Provided herein are methods, compositions and articles of manufacture for use in connection with cell therapy involving the administration of one or more doses of a therapeutic T cell composition. The cells of the T cell composition express recombinant receptors such as chimeric receptors, e.g. chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) or other transgenic receptors such as T cell receptors (TCRs). Features of the provided embodiments, including the numbers of cells or units of cells administered and/or the potency of administered cells, provide various advantages, such as lower risk of toxicity in subjects administered the T cell compositions.

  • Patent number: 10334745
    Abstract: An electronic device may include a ring-shaped housing member defining an interior volume. The ring-shaped housing member may be configured to receive electronic device components. The ring-shaped housing member may include a first element comprising an angled region, and a second element comprising an angled region. A first intermediate element may be placed between the first and second elements, where the intermediate element is secured to internal surfaces of each of the first and second elements such that the first and second elements do not overlap. The first intermediate element may fasten the first and second elements to one another, and electrically isolate the first and second elements from one another.

  • Patent number: 10247795
    Abstract: A method that includes deriving a first power spectral density function of a signal input to a ripple cancellation filter; deriving a second power spectral density function of a signal concurrently output from the ripple cancellation filter; frequency shaping the first power spectral density according to a spectral rejection image of the ripple cancellation filter to obtain a test power spectral density; and indicating a degraded performance of the ripple cancellation filter in the event that the test and second power spectral density functions fail to match within pre-determined criteria.

  • Patent number: 10196999
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for mitigating knock and/or pre-ignition. Each of a spark timing retard, cylinder enrichment, and engine load limiting is adjusted based on a knock sensor output generated in a single defined crank angle window, and not based on knock sensor output generated outside the defined crank angle window. A severity of the mitigating actions is adjusted in proportion to the knock sensor output intensity with the severity of the mitigating action increased as the knock sensor output intensity increases.
