  • Publication number: 20240160518
    Abstract: Dynamic registration of software components for root cause of failure diagnosis may include determining a start of execution of a thread associated with a process, and creating a dynamic registry associated with the thread. One or more software components associated with execution of the thread are determined, and an entry in the dynamic registry is created for each of the one or more software components. The entry includes an identifier of the software component and a diagnostic content indicator associated with the software component. The diagnostic content indicator indicates component-specific diagnostic information associated with the software component.

  • Patent number: 10556973
    Abstract: Disclosed is a process for making nitrated styrenic fluoropolymers having various degrees of substitution. The nitrated styrenic fluoropolymer is capable of providing an exceptionally high birefringence ranging from 0.02 to 0.036. Further, the birefringence can be tuned by varying the degree of substitution (DS) of the nitro group on the styrenic ring to meet the need for optical compensation film applications. More particularly, the optical compensation films of the present invention are for use in an in-plane switching LCD (IPS-LCD) and OLED display.

  • Patent number: 9928359
    Abstract: Described are architectures, systems, processes and methods for security that, at their core, are adaptive and changing at determined intervals so as to present a different environment, a portion of which is a varied attack surface, to the communications world exterior to the system. In one aspect is described improved security architecture, system and methods based upon multiple processors, operating systems and communication channels, in which at least some processors each perform as an input system connectable to a network, and are dissimilar in some manner, the manner of dissimilarity being controlled by a control system that is not connected to the network. Additionally in this aspect, an execution system is included which performs execution based upon received inputs to the input system, which are passed to the execution system once validated as being safe and not compromised.

  • Patent number: 7654496
    Abstract: A backrest for a motorcycle includes a base plate including an upper portion, and a lower portion including first and second opposing ends. A frame and/or pad are attached to the support portion. The lower portion includes a first vertical recess in the first end, and a second horizontal recess in the second end. A bracket is slidably mounted to the base portion, the bracket being slidable along a transverse axis between open and closed positions. In the closed position, a third recess in the bracket at least partially encloses the second recess for securing a pin within the second and third recesses. A locking arm is pivotally mounted to the bracket member for releasably securing the bracket member in the closed position. The bracket member and locking arm allow the backrest to be quickly attached to and released from a motorcycle.

  • Publication number: 20060203951
    Abstract: The invention considers the frequency distributions of singles, doubles and triple neutron emission events from a sample under assay. The count rates are equated to mathematical functions related to the spontaneous fission rate, self-induced fission rate, detection efficiency and ?,n rate with probability distribution assigned to each of those factors, the value of the product of all the probability distributions being increased to give an optimized solution and so provide a value of the spontaneous fission rate which is linked to the mass of the neutron source. The technique aims to provide increased accuracy and certainty compared with neutron coincidence counting based techniques.

  • Publication number: 20050015219
    Abstract: An event monitoring system has a plurality of detector units for detecting neutrons or other emissions from radioactive materials (i.e., events). At least one of the detector units has a detector for the events and an amplifier to amplify signals generated by the detector. A signal handler receives the amplified signals and an adder adds to the signals an indication of the detector unit from which the signals originated. A combiner combines the signals. A serial link conveys the combined signals from the signal handler to a signal processor which includes a signal receiver for the combined signals. A time stamper applies to the signal an indication of time of the generation of the signal by the detector unit, and a computer processes the signals, including the time and detector unit indications, using software to produce information on the signals or events they represent.
