  • Patent number: 10410693
    Abstract: A system includes a plurality of processors, each being coupled to each of remaining processors via a cluster of processor interconnects. The cluster of processor interconnects form a data distribution network. The system further includes a plurality of roots coupled to the processors, each root corresponding to one of the processors. Each root comprises a memory controller, one or more branches coupled to the memory controller, and a plurality of memory leaves coupled to the branches, each memory leaf having one or more solid state memory devices. Each of the branches is associated with one or more of the memory leaves and provides access to the associated memory leaves. Each of the processors can access any one of the memory leaves via a corresponding branch of any one of the roots over the data distribution network.

  • Patent number: 10300308
    Abstract: A method for delivering ultrasound can include positioning at least a focal zone of a transducer of an ultrasound probe proximate to targeted tissue of a patient. The method can include supplying power to the transducer to deliver ultrasound energy from the transducer to a first portion of the targeted tissue for a predetermined amount of time to create a first focal lesion in the targeted tissue. The method can include at least temporarily ceasing power to the transducer so as to at least temporarily cease delivery of ultrasound energy from the transducer to the targeted tissue. The method can include supplying power to the transducer to deliver ultrasound energy from the transducer to the targeted tissue at least substantially continuously and along a predefined treatment path.

  • Patent number: 8910049
    Abstract: Some embodiments disclose a remote support system having an analyzer and a communication link to connect to an event log associated with a monitored system. The analyzer is to monitor the event log over the link and to create a report using information in the event log. In response to the analyzer detecting a user-initiated service mode indication in the information the analyzer includes in the report additional information relating to the user-initiated service mode to facilitate events in the report to be ignored.

  • Patent number: 8031506
    Abstract: A disclosed embodiment is a programmable memory cell having improved IV characteristics comprising a thick oxide spacer transistor interposed between a programmable thin oxide antifuse and a thick oxide access transistor. The spacer transistor separates a rupture site formed during programming the programmable antifuse from the access transistor, so as to result in the improved IV characteristics. The programmable antifuse is proximate to one side of the spacer transistor, while the access transistor is proximate to an opposite side of the spacer transistor. The source region of the access transistor is coupled to ground, and the drain region of the access transistor also serves as the source region of the spacer transistor. The access transistor is coupled to a row line, while the spacer transistor and the programmable antifuse are coupled to a column line. The rupture site is formed during programming by applying a programming voltage to the programmable antifuse.

  • Patent number: 7814367
    Abstract: Method and system for allowing temporal navigation or time travel of data or data object across time are disclosed. In one embodiment, events that affected data objects are retrieved and inversed to revert the data objects back to a selected point-in-time, forward events are applied to move data objects to forward point-in-time. A sliding bar or a time dial allows a user to move data objects back and forward in time. Events that are applied may be a selected subset of events, altered events, new events, or events generated synthetically or any combinations thereof, for instance, to create counterfactual history.

  • Publication number: 20080091123
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is disclosed for determining the success of a proposed HIFU Treatment, of an ongoing HIFU Treatment, and/or of a completed HIFU Treatment. An energy density of a given HIFU Treatment may be used as a comparison factor between the given HIFU Treatment and other HIFU Treatments and as a predictor of the success of the given HIFU Treatment. One exemplary energy density is the amount of energy deposited in the treatment region divided by the volume of the treatment region. Another exemplary energy density is the amount of energy deposited in the treatment region divided by the pre-treatment mass of the treatment region. A method and apparatus is disclosed to detect the presence of focal hyperechoic features and non-focal hyperechoic features. A method and apparatus is disclosed to detect the presence of an acoustic obstruction.

  • Publication number: 20070219448
    Abstract: A IIIFU System (100) is disclosed which may automatically generate a proposed treatment plan for treating a tissue treatment area (10) with HIFU Therapy. In one example, the proposed treatment plan includes a plurality of treatment sites selected based on a three-dimensional model generated from ultrasound data. In another example, the proposed treatment plan excludes portions of the tissue treatment area (10) corresponding to blood flow, such as the neuro-vascular bundles (20) when treating the prostate (11).

  • Publication number: 20070162880
    Abstract: An antenna diode circuit is described. The antenna diode circuit includes two diodes connected in series between a signal line and ground. Alternatively, the antenna diode circuit is connected in series between a signal line and a power supply. In addition to protecting the signal line from charge accumulation during wafer fabrication, the antenna diode circuit prevents a single event transient glitch caused by a particle strike to either one of the diodes in the antenna diode circuit.

  • Patent number: 7215135
    Abstract: An apparatus for hardening logic circuitry against a Single-Event-Effect condition and for providing immunity to an overshoot and undershoot condition is provided. The apparatus includes undershoot-blocking and overshoot-blocking modules that are configured to be coupled to overshoot-insensitive and undershoot-insensitive nodes of the logic circuitry, respectively. The undershoot-blocking module is operable to (i) receive from a first node of the logic circuitry a first signal event having a undershoot condition impressed thereon, and (ii) block it from passing to the overshoot-insensitive node. The overshoot-blocking module is operable to (i) receive from the first node a second signal event having an overshoot condition impressed thereon, and (ii) block it from passing to the undershoot-insensitive node. As such, further propagation of the overshoot and undershoot conditions are prevented.
