  • Patent number: 10658386
    Abstract: A FET IC structure made using a back-side access process that mitigates or eliminates thermal conductivity problems. In some embodiments, electrically-isolated thermal paths are formed adjacent the FET and configured to conduct heat laterally away from the FET to generally orthogonal thermal pathways, and thence to thermal pads externally accessible at the “top” of the completed IC. In some embodiments having a thermally-conductive handle wafer, electrically-isolated thermal paths are formed adjacent a FET and configured to conduct heat laterally away from the FET. Thermal vias are formed sufficiently so as to be in thermal contact with the handle wafer and with the conventional metallization layers of the device superstructure, at least one of which is in thermal contact with the lateral thermal paths. In some embodiments, the lateral thermal paths may use dummy gates configured to conduct heat laterally away from a FET to generally orthogonal thermal pathways.

  • Publication number: 20190343555
    Abstract: An apparatus for repairing an anatomical tear, such as a tear in the meniscus of a human knee. The apparatus includes a guide cannula directing a penetrating shaft through the meniscal tear and through the outer skin layer of the knee. The penetrating shaft pulls a line to the outside of the skin layer of the knee where it is used to pull or kedge a repair implant into position across the meniscal tear.

  • Publication number: 20190217745
    Abstract: In a vehicle seat, a movable frame provided at a front end portion of a stationary frame is configured to be slidable frontward and rearward between a first position and a second position frontward of the first position. An outer covering provided to extend frontward from an upper side of the stationary frame is configured to wrap around a front end portion of the movable frame. First and second straps are provided to extend rearward from a front end of the outer covering and configured to pull the front end of the outer covering rearward. The front end of the outer covering from which the first and second straps extend is arranged under the stationary frame. The first strap and the second strap are in positions spaced out laterally from each other. The first strap and the second strap are being pulled laterally inward.

  • Publication number: 20190099066
    Abstract: A gripping device for an endoscope insertion tube utilizing first and second arms that are hingedly attached to one another. Each arm includes an opening to accommodate the insertion tube of an endo scope such that the endoscope insertion tube spans both arms. First and second jaws are associated with first and second arms and are positioned in opposition to one another. The movement of the arms toward one another causes the jaws to engage the insertion tube which is guided through the arms by the apertures found in the arms.
