  • Publication number: 20200003851
    Abstract: A magnetic device may include a magnetic structure, a device structure, and an associated circuit. The magnetic structure may include a patterned layer of material having a predetermined magnetic property. The patterned layer may be configured to, e.g., provide a magnetic field, sense a magnetic field, channel or concentrate magnetic flux, shield a component from a magnetic field, or provide magnetically actuated motion, etc. The device structure may be another structure of the device that is physically connected to or arranged relative to the magnetic structure to, e.g., structurally support, enable operation of, or otherwise incorporate the magnetic structure into the magnetic device, etc. The associated circuit may be electrically connected to the magnetic structure to receive, provide, condition or process of signals of the magnetic device.

  • Patent number: 10362032
    Abstract: Devices, such as hardware security modules, are provided as a service. A customer of a computing resource provider is able to request the addition of a device to a network of the customer hosted by the computing resource provider. The computing resource provider reconfigures a set of computing resources so that the devices of the customer are able to communicate with the device as if the device was in the customer's own network.

  • Patent number: 5494214
    Abstract: A container for the storage, transport and handling of bulk mail is provided. The container includes a top panel that is adequately secured in place thereby eliminating the need for a separate tray, elastic strap and sleeve. A plurality of containers, in combination with a pallet, top and bottom caps and side enclosures provide an improved method for the shipment of large quantities of bulk mail and eliminates the need for shrink wrapping conventional sleeves onto pallets.

  • Patent number: 5178275
    Abstract: An approved collapsible container is provided for the transport of bulk materials contained in sacks. A collapsible container, fabricated out of a blank, is easily attached to a wood pallet. Sacks of both materials are contained therein and a top placed overhead. The process may be repeated and two pallet/containers/top combinations may be transported simultaneously. The improved container is especially adaptable for the handling and transport of bulk mail.

  • Patent number: 4676456
    Abstract: Apparatus and method of determining a roll reference for strap down seeker in a spinning projectile is shown to consist of the steps of: (a) determining the frequency spectrum of signals out of an accelerometer disposed in such missile to be sensitive to roll, precession and nutation forces; (b) separating the signals caused to the roll forces; and (c) processing the separated signals to determine the roll reference.
