  • Publication number: 20240204382
    Abstract: An enhanced electrical circuit can employ conductive fill components that can facilitate providing desirable resistive stabilization of the electrical circuit and other desirable circuit qualities without having to use a physical resistor. The electrical circuit can comprise a transmission line, which can be a microstrip line, that can have defined dimensions. The electrical circuit can comprise respective conductive fill components that can be in proximity to desired sides of the transmission line, wherein the respective conductive fill components can provide the desired resistive stabilization for the electrical circuit. The respective conductive fill components can be separated from, and not in contact with, each other based on respective gaps of a defined size(s) between respective adjacent conductive fill components. The respective conductive fill components can be across a single layer or multiple layers of conductive fill components.

  • Publication number: 20240197392
    Abstract: Examples presented herein illustrate various end effector designs with multiple spines that can expand from a collapsed configuration as the end effector traverses vasculature to an expanded configuration when the end effector is at a treatment site. In some examples, the end effector includes three frame loops which each include a pair of spines. At least one of the three frame-loops can have a bend at a distal end of the end effector so that the spines of the frame loop are not directly opposite each other with respect to the longitudinal axis. In some examples, the end effector includes an inner and an outer frame, each having multiple spines and configured such that one or both of the frames can rotate from an aligned configuration to an unaligned configuration.

  • Publication number: 20240151623
    Abstract: A method of assessing a bodily fluid sample on a test strip may involve applying a periodic signal with a first electrode located at a first location in a microfluidic channel of the test strip, monitoring the applied periodic signal with a second electrode located at a second location in the microfluidic channel, and using a third electrode located at a third location in the microfluidic channel as a reference electrode. The method may also include: collecting the bodily fluid sample in the microfluidic channel; continuing to apply the periodic signal, monitor the periodic signal and use the third electrode as a reference electrode while collecting the bodily fluid sample; and determining that the bodily fluid sample is sufficient for analyzing, based at least in part on the applied and monitored periodic signal.

  • Patent number: 11968298
    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods for secure computation and/or communication. Entangled photons (118) are generated such that each participating party receives a series of optical pulses. Each party has private information (110, 112) which are never transmitted through public or private communication channels. Instead, each party converts their respective private information (110, 112) into measurement bases via an encryption process (114, 116) which are then applied to the entangled photons (118). After the measurement process, e.g., quantum frequency conversion (122, 124), reference indices are announced (124, 126) so that computation can be performed (128) without revealing the private information directly or indirectly.

  • Patent number: 11957576
    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: 20240111619
    Abstract: Systems and methods related to serial communication devices are provided. An example integrated circuit (IC) device includes interface circuitry coupled to a two-wire serial communication bus having a serial clock (SCL) line and a serial data (SDA) bus line. The IC device further includes bus stuck recovery circuitry to monitor for a local SDA fault condition at the IC device based on a number of clock cycles during which an internal SDA signal (e.g., generated by the IC device) drives the SDA bus line to a first signal state, the clock cycles based on a clock signal received from the SCL line; and responsive to the local SDA fault condition, release the SDA bus line independent of the internal SDA signal, where the SDA bus line is in a second signal state different from the first signal state based on the release.
