  • Publication number: 20200267550
    Abstract: A medical device of a medical system is configured for communicating with an external programmer over a wireless communications link. The medical device comprises a wireless communications module configured for receiving a first unencrypted version of a random number and a first encrypted version of the random number from the external programmer over the wireless communications link. The medical device further comprises control circuitry configured for performing an authentication procedure on the external programmer based on the first unencrypted version of the random number and the first encrypted version of the random number, and preventing the external programmer from commanding the medical device to perform an action unless the authentication procedure is successful.

  • Patent number: 6418222
    Abstract: A telephone test set is protected from an excessive current condition by a protection circuit that maintains sufficient loop current flow for continuous operation of the telephone equipment's functional circuitry, while by-passing and/or reducing excess current that could potentially damage the protected circuitry. A series current-limiting element is installed in the loop current path between a tip and ring interface and the circuitry of the telephone test set. A current shunting circuit is installed across the tip-ring ports of the protected circuit downstream of the current-limiting element. A current sense circuit monitors the loop current and controls the operation of the shunting circuit in accordance with the magnitude of the loop current. If a substantial overcurrent condition persists for an extended period of time, the resulting power dissipation associated with the high current flow will cause the current limiting element to change to a high impedance state.
