  • Patent number: 10714374
    Abstract: An example of a printed structure comprises a target substrate and a structure protruding from a surface of the target substrate. A component comprising a component substrate separate and independent from the target substrate is disposed in alignment with the structure on the surface of the target substrate within 1 micron of the structure. An example method of making a printed structure comprises providing the target substrate with the structure protruding from the target substrate, a transfer element, and a component adhered to the transfer element. The component comprises a component substrate separate and independent from the target substrate. The transfer element and adhered component move vertically toward the surface of the target substrate and horizontally towards the structure until the component physically contacts the structure or is adhered to the surface of the target substrate. The transfer element is separated from the component.

  • Patent number: 10714001
    Abstract: An exemplary active-matrix display comprises pixels disposed in a pixel array and pixel micro-controllers disposed in a controller array on a display substrate. Each of the pixels comprises micro-light-emitting elements that emit different color light. Each of the pixel micro-controllers is electrically connected to control the micro-light-emitting elements in each of two or more adjacent pixels in the pixel array. A spatial separation between pixels is greater than a spatial separation between the micro-light-emitting elements and is greater than a size of each of the micro-light-emitting elements. The micro-light-emitting elements in each of the pixels are disposed in a common pixel direction orthogonal to a pixel micro-controller center line an element distance substantially equal to or greater than one quarter of the extent of the pixel micro-controller in the common pixel direction from the center line. The pixel direction for each pixel controlled by a common pixel micro-controller is different.

  • Publication number: 20200144092
    Abstract: An example of a method of micro-transfer printing comprises providing a micro-transfer printable component source wafer, providing a stamp comprising a body and spaced-apart posts, and providing a light source for controllably irradiating each of the posts with light through the body. Each of the posts is contacted to a component to adhere the component thereto. The stamp with the adhered components is removed from the component source wafer. The selected posts are irradiated through the body with the light to detach selected components adhered to selected posts from the selected posts, leaving non-selected components adhered to non-selected posts. In some embodiments, using the stamp, the selected components are adhered to a provided destination substrate. In some embodiments, the selected components are discarded. An example micro-transfer printing system comprises a stamp comprising a body and spaced-apart posts and a light source for selectively irradiating each of the posts with light.

  • Publication number: 20200104531
    Abstract: A container corresponding to executable code may be received. The container may be executed in a secure computation environment by performing one or more operations specified by the executable code of the container. An instruction to terminate the executing of the container may be received from a high level operating system (HLOS) that is external to the secure computation environment. A determination may be made as to whether the container is associated with a preemption privilege and the executing of the container may be terminated after receiving the instruction from the HLOS based on the determination of whether the container is associated with the preemption privilege.

  • Publication number: 20200051482
    Abstract: A redundant pixel layout for a display comprises a display substrate and an array of pixels disposed on or over the display substrate. Each pixel comprises a first subpixel and a redundant second subpixel. The first subpixel includes a first subpixel controller electrically connected to controller wires and a first light emitter electrically connected to a first-light-emitter wire. The first light emitter is controlled by the first subpixel controller through the first-light-emitter wire. The second subpixel includes a second-subpixel-controller location connected to the controller wires and a second-light-emitter location comprising a second-light-emitter wire. The first light emitter is adjacent to the second-light-emitter location and the first light emitter and the second-light-emitter location are closer together than are any two pixels in the array of pixels.

  • Publication number: 20200004408
    Abstract: The method of providing audiovisual content to a client device configured to be coupled to a display. The method detects a selection of a graphical element corresponding to a video content item. In response to detecting the selection of the graphical element, a transmission mode is determined. The transmission mode is a function of: (i) one or more decoding capabilities of the client device; (ii) a video encoding format of the video content item; (ii) whether the video content item should be displayed in a full screen or a partial screen format; and (iv) whether the client device is capable of overlaying image data into a video stream. Next, audiovisual data that includes the video content item is prepared for transmission according to the determined transmission mode. Finally, the prepared audiovisual data is transmitted from the server toward the client device, according to the determined transmission mode, for display on the display.

  • Patent number: 10409445
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention relate to user interfaces and systems and methods for generating a real-time “lean-back” user interface for use with a television or other display device and for reuse of encoded elements for forming a video frame of the user interface. An interactive session is established between a client device associated with a user's television and the platform for creating the user interface over a communication network, such as a cable television network. The user interface is automatically generated by the platform and is animated even without interactions by the user with an input device. The user interface includes a plurality of interactive animated assets. The animated assets are capable of changing over time (e.g. different images, full-motion video) and are also capable of being animated so as to change screen position, rotate, move etc. over time. A hash is maintained of cached encoded assets and cached elements that may be reused within a user session and between user sessions.
