  • Patent number: 10853275
    Abstract: A device, which may be a peripheral device or a host computing device, comprises a communication interface, a memory and a processor. The processor is arranged to detect imminent disconnection of a communication link between the peripheral device and the host computing device and in response to detecting the imminent disconnection of the communication link, to trigger a data transfer from the host computing device to the peripheral device via the communication interface. The data transfer defines, at least in part, a fixed output data set which, after disconnection, is output via an output device in the peripheral device.

  • Publication number: 20200360966
    Abstract: A high-voltage pulser circuit for Electromagnetic Acoustic Transducer (EMAT) coils using a Capacitive Discharge push-pull converter. The present invention relates in particular to the operation of the converter into an Electromagnetic Acoustic Transducer (EMAT) differential coil. The present invention reduces ringing of the coil current resulting in a smaller blind zone and a well-defined broadband ultrasonic wave from the coil. The pulser can be used to generate one or more cycles and work in either pulse-echo (same transmitter and receiver) or pitch-catch (different transmitter and receiver).

  • Patent number: 10839106
    Abstract: Aspects extend to methods, systems, and computer program products for creating workflow instances. Workflow templates define different functionalities, such as, for example, between fixed and variable functionality or between functionality authored by different co-authors. Different functionalities defined in a workflow template can be configured to interoperate to provide workflow instances. Functionality defined within a workflow template can be instantiated in a workflow instance based on properties corresponding to the functionality. The properties can include connections with credentials for accessing resources used by the functionality. Connections can obscure access to credentials so that processes outside of a workflow instance cannot use the credentials to access resources.

  • Publication number: 20200352184
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to the prevention of spoilage of agricultural products (e.g., tuberous roots such as cassava roots). The disclosure teaches the use of a sulfur-donating compound (e.g., a thiosulfate salt such as sodium thiosulfate) to enable the agricultural product to scavenge endogenously-produced HCN, prevent the buildup of reactive oxygen species, prevent the buildup of insoluble byproducts, and/or prevent the loss of starch from the agricultural product.

  • Patent number: 10830553
    Abstract: A crossbow includes a rail assembly and a limb assembly that can be assembled together and disassembled from one another. A release member is rigidly attached to one assembly and a retention member is attached to the other assembly. When the crossbow is assembled the release member is in a retained position; when the crossbow is disassembled the release member is removed from its retained position. In a release position the retention member permits movement of the release member into or out of the retained position; in a retention position the retention member prevents movement of the release member out of the retained position. The release and/or retention members can be adjusted to alter the force urging together the rail and limb assemblies. The retention member can be moved between the release and retention positions without using any tool.

  • Publication number: 20200351621
    Abstract: Methods and techniques are described for supporting location services for a user equipment (UE) in a Fifth Generation wireless network in which a base station, such as a gNB or ng-eNB, broadcasts a Positioning Reference Signal (PRS) in a plurality of different directions and at a plurality of different times. A PRS muting configuration is used in which PRS is muted using a time based and angle based pattern to prevent interference between beams transmitted by other base stations and/or to prevent interference between beams transmitted simultaneously by a single base station. The time based and angle based muting pattern, for example, may provide an indication for each direction in the plurality of different directions and for each time in the plurality of different times and as to whether the PRS is transmitted or muted by the base station.
