  • Patent number: 10606560
    Abstract: Deterministic asymmetry in a random number generator can be mitigated by a circuit that includes a first inverter, a second inverter, a first capacitor, a second capacitor, a first switch, and a second switch. The first inverter can include a first input terminal and a first output terminal. The first inverter can have a first inverter threshold voltage. The second inverter can include a second input terminal and a second output terminal. The second inverter can have a second inverter threshold voltage. The first capacitor can be conductively coupled between the first output terminal and the second output terminal. The second capacitor can be conductively coupled between the second output terminal and the first input terminal. The first switch can be conductively coupled between the first input terminal and the first output terminal. The second switch can be conductively coupled between the second input terminal and the second output terminal.

  • Patent number: 10299723
    Abstract: A moisture-sensitive device is provided that includes a dissolvable conductive material. Exposure of the dissolvable conductive material to urine or some other fluid causes the dissolvable conductive material to dissolve, increasing an effective resistance of the dissolvable conductive material. This change in resistance can be detected to determine the presence of an aqueous fluid. In response to such detection, a transmitter can then provide a wireless transmission indicative of the presence of the fluid. This moisture-sensitive device can be provided in a diaper and transmissions produced by the device can be detected using a smart phone or other device and used to indicate to a user that the diaper has been soiled.

  • Patent number: 10028865
    Abstract: A moisture-sensitive device is provided that includes a fluid-sensitive battery. Exposure of the battery to urine or some other fluid causes the battery to provide a voltage that can be used to power a transmitter. The transmitter can then provide a wireless transmission indicative of the battery having been exposed to the fluid. This moisture-sensitive device can be provided in a diaper and transmissions produced by the device can be detected using a smart phone or other device and used to indicate to a user that the diaper has been soiled. By powering the transmitter using the fluid-sensitive battery and storing the battery in a dry state, such a device can be stored for a protracted period of time before use.

  • Publication number: 20140180713
    Abstract: A real-time method and system are provided for monitoring hygiene compliance within a tracking environment. Auto-ID personnel tags are associated with personnel whose hygiene compliance is desired to track locations of the personnel within the environment. A first transceiver is associated with a handwashing dispenser unit. A second transceiver is associated with an entrance/exit of a patient location area. The method includes associating a first timer with the first transceiver that starts in response to activation of the dispenser. A second timer is associated with the second transceiver and starts in response to detection of personnel entering/exiting the patient location area. Hygiene-compliance is monitored based on these transceivers monitoring handwashing activity and entering/exiting the patient location area by the personnel.

  • Publication number: 20110121974
    Abstract: A real-time method and system are provided for monitoring hygiene compliance within a tracking environment provided by real-time tracking apparatus. Auto-ID personnel tags are associated with personnel whose hygiene compliance is desired to track locations of the personnel within the environment. Each of the personnel tags is capable of transmitting a wireless signal including ID information unique to its associated personnel tag. Personnel location information is generated based on the locations of the personnel tags within the environment. The method includes associating an auto-ID dispenser tag with each cleaning agent dispenser located within the tracking environment. Each of the dispenser tags is capable of transmitting a wireless signal including ID information. The method further includes sensing a state change which indicates activation of a particular dispenser.
