  • Publication number: 20210180719
    Abstract: A handwashing valve structure includes a mounting structure, a dispensing structure, and a control structure. The mounting structure is configured to attach to a liquid vessel. The dispensing structure is configured to dispense a liquid from the liquid vessel and is movable between a closed position and an open position. The control structure is configured to move the dispensing structure between the closed position and the open position. The control structure is configured to be moved by pressure from a portion of a user's body to move the dispensing structure from the closed position to the open position. The dispensing structure is configured to automatically move from the open position to the closed position in the absence of any pressure from the portion of the user's body onto the control structure.

  • Patent number: 10267845
    Abstract: A system for simultaneously burning in, testing and curing all the die on an uncut semiconductor wafer having top and bottom surfaces, the system having upper and lower platen assemblies with a flow section configured to receive and discharge a temperature-controlled, circulated liquid heat transfer medium to maintain the temperatures of the top and bottom surfaces of the uncut semiconductor wafer within desired limits during wafer burn-in and testing and a programmable CPU and service controller configurable to selectively energize, monitor, test, display and store a plurality of performance parameters for the electronic circuitry of each of the plurality of die of the uncut semiconductor wafer simultaneously throughout a desired burn-in and test period.

  • Patent number: 10170151
    Abstract: Methods, devices and systems are provided for making a shingled magnetic recording (SMR) hard disk drive operate with similar random access characteristics of a conventional hard drive despite the SMR disk having strict sequential write requirements. A virtual space manager manages a virtual address space, which is visible to a host system, and maps virtual addresses to logical addresses on the SMR disk. A logical space manager controls the placement of data on the SMR disk and ensures that writes to the disk comply with the sequential write requirements. The disk is subdivided into a plurality of stripes each comprising one or more blocks. When a block located within a stripe is to be rewritten with new data, the entire stripe is read from the SMR disk into a memory of the system, the stripe is modified in the memory to replace the previous data stored in the block with the new data, and the modified stripe is written to a new, next available stripe on the disk.

  • Publication number: 20180328978
    Abstract: A system for simultaneously burning in, testing and curing all the die on an uncut semiconductor wafer; for establishing electrical connectivity in one-to-one correspondence between each die and a specific current amplifier, for monitoring, displaying, evaluating and recording test parameters in relation to preset parametric limits during a requisite test period; and for shutting down any individual die that exceeds the preset parametric limits. Methods of use and subsystems for raising and lowering a semiconductor wafer in relation to a pin chuck and for controlling wafer temperature by circulating a liquid heat exchange medium through platen assemblies disposed above and below the wafer are also disclosed.
