  • Publication number: 20190126000
    Abstract: Sleep environment control systems adjust sleep environments independently for individual users. A sleep environment control system delivers multiple environment adjustments via one opening to a user supported by a mattress. The environment adjustments include airflow, water vapor, light, and sound. The sleep environment control system can be placed in adjacent to the mattress thereby to deliver the environment adjustments to the user. The environment adjustments are delivered to the user in a localized fashion such that they do not disrupt other users. The sleep environment control system further generates the one or more environment adjustments.

  • Publication number: 20180191269
    Abstract: A power converter for converting direct current (DC) power to alternating current (AC) power includes a first power converter section and a second power converter section connected in parallel with the first power converter section. A power rating of the first power converter section is substantially greater than a power rating of the second power converter section. A controller is operatively coupled to the first power converter section and the second power converter section, the controller configured to enable at least the first power controller section when a power demand placed on the power converter exceeds a prescribed power level, and disable the first power controller and enable the second power controller section when the power demand placed on the power converter is below the prescribed power level. An advantage of the power converter in accordance with the present disclosure is that it minimizes parasitic losses associated with larger power sections of the converter.

  • Patent number: 8949637
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes, upon occurrence of multiple power state transition events for a core of a multi-core processor, reading a value of a system counter of the core and values of low power counters of the core, without expiration of a timer or triggering of an interrupt. These values can be stored in a storage of the processor. Then, after collection is completed, the storage can be accessed to determine a power profile of the processor using the stored values. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20140186645
    Abstract: A method of assembling a preform for a bend-insensitive multimode optical fiber (BIMMF), includes providing a multimode core rod, a glass overclad tube, and a trench tube of down-doped quartz glass with a depressed refractive index sufficient to obtain a desired trench depth in a refractive index (RI) profile of a drawn fiber. The core rod is placed inside the trench tube, and the trench tube and the core rod are placed inside the overclad tube to define the preform. A top end of the trench tube is formed to contact an adjacent part of either the core rod or the overclad tube so that the trench tube is suspended to hang from the adjacent part when the preform is vertically oriented, and a bottom end of the trench tube is restrained from sinking into a lower portion of the preform when the preform is heated to collapse.

  • Patent number: 8762694
    Abstract: Method, apparatus, and system for a programmable event-driven yield mechanism. The mechanism may disrupt processing of a program to deliver a yield event. The event may be treated as a fault-like yield event or a trap-like event. For a fault-like yield event, the faulting instruction is canceled before retirement and processor state is not updated before the yield event is delivered. For a trap-like yield event the instruction causing the trap is retired and the yield event is delivered on an interrupt boundary. Multiple pending yield events may be handled according to priority. Other embodiments are also described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 8679761
    Abstract: A method for detecting inflammation in the urinary tract or urethra of a patient, especially urethritis, comprises a) contacting leucocytes obtained from a urine sample provided by the patient with a luminescence reagent which emits light on reaction with an oxidant; b) adding an activator to the mixture of leucocytes and luminescence reagent; c) continuously monitoring and/or measuring light emitted by the luminescence reagent over a predetermined time period commencing before and ending after the addition of the activator. The light emission is indicative of the presence or absence of inflammation in the urinary tract or urethra of the patient. The urine sample is preferably a sample of first pass urine. The method makes possible a diagnosis especially of urethritis and, in particular, urethral infections selected from Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which can be carried out quickly without invasive procedures.
