  • Patent number: 10812909
    Abstract: A loudspeaker diaphragm (12) comprising a woven fibre body supports damping material (25), for example PVA polymer, on a rearward-facing surface (24). The woven fibre body may be formed of lengths (14) non-metallic fibre material (for example glass fibre) coating with a thin metal coating (32). The mass of the layer of damping material (25) may be less than the mass of the woven fibre body. An attractive sparkly looking loudspeaker diaphragm (12) may thus be provided which damps undesirable vibration whilst providing a flatter frequency-response curve (50).

  • Publication number: 20200286950
    Abstract: Magnetoresistive device architectures and methods for manufacturing are presented that facilitate integration of process steps associated with forming such devices into standard process flows used for surrounding logic/circuitry. In some embodiments, the magnetoresistive device structures are designed such that the devices are able to fit within the vertical dimensions of the integrated circuit associated with a single metal layer and a single layer of interlayer dielectric material. Integrating the processing for the magnetoresistive devices can include using the same standard interlayer dielectric material as used in the surrounding circuits on the integrated circuit as well as using standard vias to interconnect to at least one of the electrodes of the magnetoresistive devices.

  • Publication number: 20200168338
    Abstract: A patient monitor (8) includes a display (10). Patient values (38) are obtained for one or more known variables of a risk prediction function (30). One or more unknown variables of the risk prediction function are determined, and at least one hyperplane (40) is defined as values assumable by the one or more unknown variables. Values of the risk prediction function are computed over the at least one hyperplane using the obtained patient values. A visualization template is selected from a database of visualization templates (50) using template selection indices including the risk prediction function and the one or more unknown variables. Using the visualization template, a visualization (52) of the computed values of the risk prediction function over the at least one hyperplane is displayed.

  • Publication number: 20200168336
    Abstract: A device, system, and method determines when to select limited echocardiography exams. The method is performed at a workflow server. The method includes receiving an image order for a patient, the image order including information indicative of a reason to perform an image acquisition procedure. The method includes determining whether the patient has had a prior image acquisition procedure performed within a time threshold relative to the image order. The method includes when the prior image acquisition procedure had been performed within the time threshold, determining whether the reason requires a number of views within a view threshold. The method includes when the number of views is within the view threshold, generating an indication that the image acquisition Communications procedure is to be performed with a limited capacity.

  • Publication number: 20200123438
    Abstract: A sintered rod-shaped proppant and anti-flowback agent possesses high strength and high conductivity. The sintered rods comprise between about 0.2% by weight and about 4% by weight aluminum titanate. In some embodiments, the sintered rods are made by mixing bauxitic and non-bauxitic sources of alumina that may also contain several so-called impurities (such as TiO2), extruding the mixture, and sintering it. The starting material may optionally be milled to achieve better compacity and crush resistance in the final sintered rod. A fracturing fluid may comprise the sintered rods alone or in combination with a proppant, preferably a proppant of a different shape.

  • Publication number: 20200118011
    Abstract: The disclosure generally describes methods, software, and systems for providing solution descriptions. A problem description of a problem is received, from a client, at a cloud-based reasoning service. A solution description for a solution to the problem is received. Case metadata for a case defining the problem and solution are generated by the cloud-based reasoning service. The case metadata, including the problem description and solution description, are stored by the cloud-based reasoning service in a cases repository associating solutions with problems. A new problem is received at the cloud-based reasoning service. An automated analysis of the new problem is performed, and a comparison is made of the new problem with existing solutions in the cases repository to identify solutions matching the new problem. A new solution description is provided that is based on a match between the new problem description and the problem description and using the problem solution.
