  • Patent number: 11914523
    Abstract: This disclosure provides techniques hierarchical address virtualization within a memory controller and configurable block device allocation. By performing address translation only at select hierarchical levels, a memory controller can be designed to have predictable I/O latency, with brief or otherwise negligible logical-to-physical address translation time. In one embodiment, address transition may be implemented entirely with logical gates and look-up tables of a memory controller integrated circuit, without requiring processor cycles. The disclosed virtualization scheme also provides for flexibility in customizing the configuration of virtual storage devices, to present nearly any desired configuration to a host or client.

  • Publication number: 20230300538
    Abstract: An interactive system can utilize microtechnology (e.g., a micro-electromechanical system (MEMS)), such as miniaturized microphone (e.g., a bone-conducting microphone), audio output device, microprocessor, and signal conversion and propagation means to create a personal area network (PAN) for a user. The system can include a voice input device (e.g., worn on one or more teeth of the user) that outputs a near-field magnetic induction (NFMI) signal based on a whisper input by the user. The NFMI signal is either detected by the user's mobile device, or converted into a wireless signal (e.g., a Bluetooth RF signal) detectable by the user's mobile device, for receiving voice commands (e.g., to provide personal assistant services) via a designated application running on the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 11740126
    Abstract: Methods and systems for measuring one or more properties of a sample are disclosed. The methods and systems can include multiplexing measurements of signals associated with a plurality of wavelengths without adding any signal independent noise and without increasing the total measurement time. One or more levels of encoding, where, in some examples, a level of encoding can be nested within one or more other levels of encoding. Multiplexing can include wavelength, position, and detector state multiplexing. In some examples, SNR can be enhanced by grouping together one or more signals based on one or more properties including, but not limited to, signal intensity, drift properties, optical power detected, wavelength, location within one or more components, material properties of the light sources, and electrical power. In some examples, the system can be configured for optimizing the conditions of each group individually based on the properties of a given group.

  • Publication number: 20230264715
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to generating a puddle occupancy grid including a plurality of cells. For instance, a first probability value for a puddle being located at a first location generated using sensor data from a first sensor may be received. A second probability value for a puddle being located at a second location generating using sensor data from a second sensor different from the first sensor may be received. A first cell may be identified from the plurality of cells using the first location. The first cell may also be identified using the second location. A value for the cell may be generated using the first probability value and the second probability value.

  • Publication number: 20230221222
    Abstract: A microtomy system includes a tissue chuck configured to accept a tissue block and a microtome blade configured to remove one or more tissue sections from the tissue block, the microtome blade being axially offset from the tissue chuck along a horizontal axis, where the microtome blade and the tissue chuck are axially displaceable relative to one another along the horizontal axis. The system also includes a control system configured to receive information indicative of a relative axial location of the microtome blade to the tissue chuck along the horizontal axis, and to use a control loop to control the relative axial location of the microtome blade to the tissue chuck such that the one or more tissue sections have a desired thickness.

  • Patent number: 11695996
    Abstract: A machine detects a set of first control operations and, in response, causes a display screen to present a graphical interface in which a central window suggests first content by presenting a first preview and a first identifier superimposed on the first preview. The machine then detects a second control operation that indicates dismissal of the first content. In response to the second control operation, the machine causes the display screen to present a transition to an interest-improved version of the graphical interface. The transition includes sliding the first preview, the first identifier, a second preview, and a second identifier together in a shared direction and at a shared speed within the central window. The second preview and the second identifier correspond to second content. In the interest-improved version of the graphical interface, the central window suggests the second content by presenting the second preview and the second identifier.

  • Publication number: 20230204497
    Abstract: This relates to systems and methods for measuring a concentration and type of substance in a sample at a sampling interface. The systems can include a light source, optics, one or more modulators, a reference, a detector, and a controller. The systems and methods disclosed can be capable of accounting for drift originating from the light source, one or more optics, and the detector by sharing one or more components between different measurement light paths. Additionally, the systems can be capable of differentiating between different types of drift and eliminating erroneous measurements due to stray light with the placement of one or more modulators between the light source and the sample or reference. Furthermore, the systems can be capable of detecting the substance along various locations and depths within the sample by mapping a detector pixel and a microoptics to the location and depth in the sample.
