  • Patent number: 10884192
    Abstract: Examples herein relate to single-etch layer grating couplers. In particular, implementations herein relate to single-etch layer grating couplers comprising a planar waveguide wherein a first grating section and a second grating section are etched into. The first grating section is configured to scatter light at a given wavelength at a first angle relative to vertical and the second grating section is configured to scatter light at the given wavelength at a second angle relative to vertical. The stagger-tuning of the first grating section and the second grating section results in the light at the given wavelength being scattered at a desired angle the same or near an angle at which an optical fiber is offset from vertical.

  • Patent number: 10876390
    Abstract: There is described a method of controlling a drilling operation. A pipe joint is determined to be entering a rotating control device (RCD). In response to determining that the pipe joint is entering the RCD, a weight-on-bit (WOB) setpoint is increased so as to increase a measured WOB. After increasing the WOB setpoint, the pipe joint is determined to be exiting the RCD. In response to determining that the pipe joint is exiting the RCD, the WOB setpoint is decreased so as to decrease the measured WOB.

  • Publication number: 20200269551
    Abstract: Embodiments of a vehicle interior system are disclosed. In one or more embodiments, the vehicle interior system includes a base having a curved surface, and a glass substrate. The glass substrate has a first major surface, a second major surface, a minor surface connecting the first and second major surfaces, and a thickness in a range from 0.05 mm to 2 mm. The second major surface has a first radius of curvature of 500 mm or greater. When an impacter having a mass of 6.8 kg impacts the first major surface at an impact velocity of 5.35 m/s to 6.69 m/s, the deceleration of the impacter is 120 g (g-force) or less.

  • Patent number: 10727120
    Abstract: A method of fabricating interconnects in a semiconductor device is provided, which includes forming a metallization layer and depositing a hardmask layer over the metallization layer. A dielectric layer is deposited over the hardmask layer and an opening is formed in the dielectric layer to expose the hardmask layer. The exposed hardmask layer in the opening is etched to form an undercut beneath the dielectric layer. A metal shoulder is formed at the undercut, wherein the metal shoulder defines an aperture dimension used for forming a via opening extending to the metallization layer.

  • Publication number: 20200128378
    Abstract: Methods for aggregating Bluetooth profiles for faster connection and configuration are disclosed, including transmitting, subsequent to establishing a connection, a request message to a peer device that indicates support of a fast connection protocol for Bluetooth profiles configuration and receiving a response message from the peer device that indicates the peer device supports the fast connection protocol. After pairing with the peer device, a first list of profile descriptors for a plurality of Bluetooth profiles supported by the device may be transmitted to the peer device and a second list of profile descriptors for a plurality of Bluetooth profiles supported by the peer device may be received. A configuration of a plurality of Bluetooth profiles base, at least in part, on a comparison of the first list of profile descriptors to the second list of profile descriptors may be determined and transmitted to the peer device.

  • Patent number: 10579956
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for verifying user-provided data feeds. A data feed is received from a client and stored in a data store. An error detection process is initiated upon the data feed. A flag is set indicating that the data feed is being processed. A detected error from the error detection process is stored in the data store. The flag is updated indicating that processing of the data feed is finished upon completion of the error detection process. Upon a polling of the flag indicating that the processing of the data feed is finished, an update is generated to the user interface employed in the client to transfer the data feed. The update describes the detected error.
