  • Patent number: 11508573
    Abstract: In a variety of processes for forming electronic devices that use spin-on dielectric materials, properties of the spin-on dielectric materials can be enhanced by curing these materials using plasma doping. For example, hardness and Young's modulus can be increased for the cured material. Other properties may be enhanced. The plasma doping to cure the spin-on dielectric materials uses a mechanism that is a combination of plasma ion implant and high energy radiation associated with the species ionized. In addition, physical properties of the spin-on dielectric materials can be modified along a length of the spin-on dielectric materials by selection of an implant energy and dopant dose for the particular dopant used, corresponding to a selection variation with respect to length.

  • Patent number: 11477328
    Abstract: PTP timestamps are obtained and correlated to internal audio time and timestamps. This allows Ethernet/IP audio devices to be closely aligned with local digital audio devices to allow improved AEC operations. By performing repetitive PTP timestamps based on local audio time, drift between PTP time and local audio time is determined and corrected. By performing the PTP to local audio time operations on each independent Ethernet network, the Ethernet/IP audio devices can be split between independent LANs. If some local digital audio inputs formed from analog inputs are not aligned with other local digital audio inputs, signals can be provided in analog format and audio samples of the signals can be correlated to local audio time. With correlations performed as necessary based on the various audio inputs in use, high quality AEC operations are performed.

  • Patent number: 11464531
    Abstract: A minimally invasive tissue incision system for creating joint capsulotomies and releasing/incising various tissues, tendons, and fibrous band structures is described. The system contains a penetrating needle which is retractable so as to expose a cutting element, and which may be used as a penetrating needle to pierce the skin and other soft tissue structures. The cutting element provided within the penetrating needle may be used to incise subsequent tissue structures after the initial penetration. The system facilitates such procedures by providing the cutting element with the confines of the needle which provides safe introduction of the cutting element directly to the site via the needle.

  • Publication number: 20220313083
    Abstract: A method of discovering relationships between eye movements and cognitive and/or emotional responses of a user starts by engaging the user in a task having visual stimuli via an electronic display configured to elicit a predicted specific cognitive and/or emotional response from the user. The visual stimuli are varied to elicit the predicted specific cognitive and/or emotional response from the user. A camera films an eye of the user. A first time series of eye movements is recorded by the camera. A computing device compares the eye movements from the first time series and the tasks and identifies at least one relationship between eye movements that correlate to the actual specific cognitive and/or emotional response.

  • Patent number: 11382545
    Abstract: A method of discovering relationships between eye physiology and cognitive and/or emotional responses of a user starts with engaging the user in a plurality of tasks configured to elicit a predicted specific cognitive and/or emotional response. A first camera films at least one eye of the user recording a time series of events of eye movements of the user, the camera not being in physical contact with the user. The first time series of eye movements are sent to a computing device which compares the eye movements and the plurality of events. The computing device can then identify at least one relationship between eye movements that correlate to an actual specific cognitive and/or emotional response.

  • Publication number: 20220142039
    Abstract: The disclosed apparatus, systems and methods relate to devices, systems and methods for on-the-go monitoring and controlled feedback in a supplemental downforce application. Certain implementations provide real-time monitoring of furrow depth via contact and non-contact approaches, some of which are combined with gauge wheel feedback to calibrate and otherwise control the application of supplemental downforce to the row unit. A combination of sensor types are employed in collecting furrow depth measurements, which can be used to adjust the supplemental downforce through a control system module. A gauge wheel load sensor may be used to modify the application of supplemental downforce.

  • Patent number: 11301803
    Abstract: A system for inventory and sales process control and display. The improved system for inventory includes a first database with a list of pre-assigned machine-readable code, a second database with a list of items, and a pricing database associated with each of the list of items in the second database. The second database is foreign keyed by machine-readable code number to the first database to associate one or more items listed in the second database with each of the pre-assigned machine-readable code. A query of the first database for a specific pre-assigned machine-readable code generates the associated list of items from the second database for that specific pre-assigned machine-readable code and a price for each of the items in the associated list of items. The system may also include at least one remote user interface.

  • Patent number: 11289179
    Abstract: Provided is a system providing a solution for improving prescription drug compliance monitoring and compliance. Prescription drug compliance monitoring may be achieved by using patient's electronic device to initiate secure digital imaging. Medications may be dispensed in containers with pre-printed encoded unique identifiers and markings. The patient may use the digital camera in their smart phone to take a picture of the dispensed blister pack which may be processed and analyzed. Analysis may include assessment of the number of pills taken from and remaining in the uniquely identified blister pack. Package identification and consumption information may then be linked with other prescription information to determine if the observed rate of use is compliant with the legal prescription and to document that the imaged medication package is the same as the dispensed medication package. Data may also be linked with pharmacologic and clinical data to categorize risk and urgency of misuse.
