Scott A. Wilber has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Abstract: An RNG circuit is connected to the parallel port of a computer. The circuit includes a flat source of white noise and a CMOS amplifier circuit compensated in the high frequency range. A low-frequency cut-off is selected to maintain high band-width yet eliminate the 1/f amplifier noise tail. A CMOS comparator with a 10 nanosecond rise time converts the analog signal to a binary one. A shift register converts the serial signal to a 4-bit parallel one at a sample rate selected at the knee of the serial dependence curve. Two levels of XOR defect correction produce a BRS at 20 kHZ, which is converted to a 4-bit parallel word, latched and buffered. The entire circuit is powered from the data pins of the parallel port. A device driver interface in the computer operates the RNG. The randomness defects with various levels of correction and sample rates are calculated and the RNG is optimized before manufacture.
Abstract: A data acquisition control method and system for alphanumeric character recognition. An unknown pattern is normalized, the normalized pattern is then divided into top and bottom parts. A center of mass is calculated for the two parts and is utilized for vertically aligning the unknown pattern. The vertically aligned pattern is width normalized and feature vectors are obtained. The feature vectors of the unknown pattern are then compared with feature vectors of known patterns stored in memory and the characters are identified.

Abstract: A non-invasive blood constituent measuring device and method are disclosed for measuring changes in blood thickness of predetermined blood constituents relative to total change in blood thickness at a test area to thereby determine the concentration of such constituents in the blood in a living body, which measured constituents may be, for example, hemoglobin and oxyhemoglobin to enable determination of oxygen saturation of blood. The device includes a plurality of light emitting diodes operationally controlled by timing circuitry for sequentially emitting light at different predetermined wavelengths toward a blood containing tissue sample, such as an ear lobe.
Abstract: A photodetector including a photosensitive material which changes its electrical properties in response to radiation striking the material, and particularly radiation of a wavelength at or near that of light, positioned within an electrically conductive enclosure and having a window transparent to the desired light and near light wavelengths positioned in an opening in such enclosure, the window being electrically conductive to protect the light sensitive material from various electromagnetic, radio frequency and similar interference.
