  • Patent number: 11005531
    Abstract: A signal generator includes a data source, a power source, and a modulator. The modulator is configured to modulate a power signal from the power source with a data signal from the data source to generate a modulated power signal. Data values of the data signal correspond to variations in a voltage level of the modulated power signal over time. The modulator is coupled to output the modulated data signal to a one-wire interface.

  • Patent number: 10983589
    Abstract: Systems and methods of assisting users in collision avoidance in a virtual reality environment include tracking a location, speed, and direction of movement of first and second users in a physical environment; based on the tracked location, speed, and direction of each of the users, calculating a collision probability between the first user and the second user in the physical environment; comparing a threshold collision probability to the calculated collision probability; and when the calculated collision probability exceeds the threshold collision probability and the first user avatar visible to the second user and the second user avatar visible to the first user do not visually suggest to each of the first user and the second user a representation of the probability of collision in the physical environment, a collision alert is triggered.

  • Patent number: 10945012
    Abstract: A system and a method are disclosed for recommending podcasts. In an embodiment, the system detects a podcast request, and responsively determines whether a profile of the user indicates consumption by the user of podcasts. Responsive to determining that the profile does not indicate consumption by the user of podcasts, the system determines music preferences of the user based on data of the profile, and generates a podcast seed based on the music preferences. The system selects a podcast recommendation based on the podcast seed, and provides the podcast recommendation to the user. The system receives a selection of the podcast recommendation by the user, and responsively plays back a podcast corresponding to the podcast recommendation.

  • Patent number: 10910525
    Abstract: Quantum dot semiconductor nanoparticle compositions that incorporate ions such as zinc, aluminum, calcium, or magnesium into the quantum dot core have been found to be more stable to Ostwald ripening. A core-shell quantum dot may have a core of a semiconductor material that includes indium, magnesium, and phosphorus ions. Ions such as zinc, calcium, and/or aluminum may be included in addition to, or in place of, magnesium. The core may further include other ions, such as selenium, and/or sulfur. The core may be coated with one (or more) shells of semiconductor material. Example shell semiconductor materials include semiconductors containing zinc, sulfur, selenium, iron and/or oxygen ions.

  • Patent number: 10883046
    Abstract: A method of synthesis of two-dimensional (2D) nanoparticles comprises combining a first nanoparticle precursor and a second nanoparticle precursor in one or more solvents to form a solution, followed by heating the solution to a first temperature for a first time period, then subsequently heating the solution to a second temperature for a second time period, wherein the second temperature is higher than the first temperature, to effect the conversion of the nanoparticle precursors into 2D nanoparticles. In one embodiment, the first nanoparticle precursor is a metal-amine complex and the second nanoparticle precursor is a slow-releasing chalcogen source.

  • Publication number: 20200378216
    Abstract: A downhole tool. The downhole tool may include a tubular body and an inner sleeve that is slidable within the tubular body. The tubular body may include a port that allows fluid flow between a bore of the downhole tool and an area outside of the tubular body. The downhole tool may be sequentially positionable in a run-in position that blocks fluid flow through the port in the tubular body, then in an open position that allows fluid flow through the port in the tubular bod, and then in a closed position that blocks fluid flow through the port in the tubular body.

  • Publication number: 20200363639
    Abstract: Systems and methods of unbinding the scope of a virtual reality environment. One method includes the steps of: providing a user virtual reality device to a user; providing the virtual reality environment to the user through the user virtual reality device, wherein the virtual reality environment has a corresponding physical environment in which the users are located when interacting with the virtual reality environment; providing a virtual offset in the virtual reality environment so that the ratio of the virtual reality environment to the corresponding physical environment is greater than 1:1; and providing a user avatar in the virtual reality environment through which the user explores the virtual reality environment.

  • Publication number: 20200350220
    Abstract: A chip includes a metal layer, a portion of a first sawbow line, and a portion of a second sawbow line. The portion of the first sawbow line and the portion of the second sawbow line respectively correspond to the first sawbow line and the second sawbow line in a cut state. The portions of the first and second sawbow lines may be on different layers, and the metal layer may be arranged over the portion of the first sawbow line and/or the portion of the second sawbow line to hide at least one of the portions of the sawbow lines in the cut state.

  • Publication number: 20200350263
    Abstract: A semiconductor die includes a circuit, a plurality of metal layers, a first sawbow line coupled to the circuit, and a second sawbow line coupled to the circuit. The first sawbow line is hidden under a first metal layer of the plurality of metal layers when the first sawbow line is in a cut state. The second sawbow line is hidden under the first metal layer or a second metal layer of the plurality of metal layers when the second sawbow line is in a cut state. The first sawbow line and the second sawbow line are on different ones of the plurality of metal layers. A number of pull-down or pull-up resistors may be included to set the logical states of the sawbow lines, in order to disable a predetermined mode of operation of the die when a wafer including the die is cut. The sawbow lines may carry a variety of types of signals (e.g., analog, digital, random, ground, supply) that makes the nature and value of them extremely hard to detect/hack.

  • Publication number: 20200277828
    Abstract: A system for bracing a reciprocating shaft having a first shaft portion that moves along a long axis with respect to a second shaft portion and a short axis orthogonal to the long axis. The first shaft portion moves past a switch in a first direction to disengage the switch and past the switch in a second direction to engage the switch. A bracing member is carried by the switch and has a tip that, when the switch is engaged, is located immediately adjacent and laterally braces the second shaft portion by limiting movement of the second shaft portion along the short axis. When the switch is disengaged, the tip of the bracing member is not located immediately adjacent the shaft.
