    Abstract: A component assembly includes an intermediate carrier, a plurality of components and a plurality of anchoring elements. The components have at least two electrical devices and an insulating layer. At least one of the electrical devices is an optoelectronic semiconductor chip. The insulating layer is between the electrical devices of a same component. The at least two electrical devices of the same component are arranged next to one another and enclosed laterally by the insulating layer. The at least two electrical devices and the insulating layer of the same component are integral parts of a self-supporting and mechanically stable unit.

    Abstract: In an approach, a processor groups documents into a plurality of groups based on similarity, where: documents of each group have a same document structure; and the document structure is defined by coordinates of text blocks. A processor, for each group of the plurality of groups and for each document of the respective group: retrieves a value of each text block of the respective document in accordance with a document structure of the group; and assigns to each text block of the respective document an attribute that represents the retrieved value of the text block. A processor assigns a first document of the documents to an entity of a database that matches the first document based on the group of text block values and the assigned attributes of the document.

  • Patent number: 11391440
    Abstract: Light-emitting component includes a light source and a dimming element arranged downstream of the light source in a radiation direction. The dimming element includes a dimming layer. The light source includes at least one emitter which is configured to emit light. A brightness of a light emitted by the light-emitting component is adjustable. The brightness is partially adjustable by way of a pulse width modulated and/or amplitude modulated operating signal for the emitter, and the brightness is partially adjustable by way of partial absorption and/or reflection of the light emitted by the emitter in the dimming element. A dimming capability of the dimming layer increases along an extension direction transverse to the radiation direction. The dimming layer is displaceable along the extension direction relative to the light source. A degree of absorption and/or reflection of light emitted by the emitter is variably adjustable.

  • Publication number: 20220191192
    Abstract: In an approach for authentication of a username, a processor maintains a mapping of usernames and realms. A processor receives a username and a time-based one-time password code (TOTP code) for the username based on an authentication application. A processor, upon receiving the TOTP code: determines a realm from the mapping based on the received username and the received TOTP; and requests an entry of a credential relating to the username in the realm. A processor, upon receiving of the requested credential, authenticates the username by determining that the received credential matches an expected credential for the realm.
