  • Publication number: 20200015703
    Abstract: A catheter has single axis sensors mounted directly along a portion of the catheter whose position/location is of interest. The magnetic based, single axis sensors are on a linear or nonlinear single axis sensor (SAS) assembly. The catheter includes a catheter body and a distal 2D or 3D configuration provided by a support member on which at least one, if not at least three single axis sensors, are mounted serially along a length of the support member. The magnetic-based sensor assembly may include at least one coil member wrapped on the support member, wherein the coil member is connected via a joint region to a respective cable member adapted to transmit a signal providing location information from the coil member to a mapping and localization system.

  • Patent number: 10524905
    Abstract: Embodiments of an expandable sheath can be used in conjunction with a catheter assembly to introduce a prosthetic device, such as a heart valve, into a patient. Such embodiments can minimize trauma to the vessel by allowing for temporary expansion of a portion of the introducer sheath to accommodate the delivery apparatus, followed by a return to the original diameter once the prosthetic device passes through. Some embodiments can include a sheath with inner and outer layers, where a folded portion of the inner layer extends through a slit in the outer layer and a portion of the outer layer overlaps the folded portion of the inner layer. Some embodiments include an elastic outer cover positioned outside the outer layer. Embodiments of the present expandable sheath can avoid the need for multiple insertions for the dilation of the vessel, thus offering advantages over prior art introducer sheaths.

  • Publication number: 20190385924
    Abstract: The disclosed principles provide a stress buffer layer between an IC die and heat spreader used to dissipate heat from the die. The stress buffer layer comprises distributed pairs of conductive pads and a corresponding set of conductive posts formed on the conductive pads. In one embodiment, the stress buffer layer may comprise conductive pads laterally distributed over non-electrically conducting surfaces of an embedded IC die to thermally conduct heat from the IC die. In addition, such a stress buffer layer may comprise conductive posts laterally distributed and formed directly on each of the conductive pads. Each of the conductive posts thermally conduct heat from respective conductive pads. In addition, each conductive post may have a lateral width less than a lateral width of its corresponding conductive pad. A heat spreader is then formed over the conductive posts which thermally conducts heat from the conductive posts through the heat spreader.

  • Publication number: 20190373673
    Abstract: With the introduction of this two channel aggregation RFU architecture, a series of new trunking configurations are proposed. Comparing with existing tracking radio configurations, this two channel aggregation radio architecture has the following key advantages: compact 4+0, 6+0 and N+0 trunking radio architectures; an innovative compact 2+2 XPIC trunking radio architecture; a new 2+0 standby radio architecture; an extremely compact N+0 and N+N radio architectures; 5. the feasibility of many higher order N+0 and N+N XPIC compact configurations; the feasibility and possibility that the whole trunking radio can be directly mounts to the antenna, largely boosts the overall system gain by removing this flexible waveguide between antenna and traditional trunking radio. Single two-channel aggregated RFU with two-channel aggregated modem can support up to 4 56 MHz RF channels. With 4096QAM modulation, single RFU can support up to 2.5 Gbits/s throughput.

  • Patent number: 10485610
    Abstract: A catheter has a distal assembly with at least one loop with ring electrodes. A single continuous puller wire for bidirectional deflection is pre-bent into two long portions and a U-shape bend therebetween. The U-shape bend is anchored at a distal end of a deflectable section which is reinforced by at least one washer having at least two holes, each hole axially aligned with a respective lumen in the deflectable section. Each hole is centered with a lumen so that each puller wire portion therethrough is straight and subjected to tensile force only. A proximal end of the support member is flattened and serrated to provide a better bonding to the distal end of the deflectable section.
