  • Patent number: 11123488
    Abstract: An injection device assembly including a housing, a syringe, a drive mechanism and one or more sensing systems are described. The drive mechanism advances the syringe from a storage position to an injection position, and a plunger advances the syringe piston from an initial position to a final position. The status sensing system may include one or more main PCB(s) disposed in an end portion of the injection device assembly's housing. The system may determine various parameters related to an operational status of the injection device, including the location of the devices components, an amount of medication remaining in the device, a temperature of the medication, and whether or not the device is properly contacting the users skin before injection. The system may communicate such determined parameters to an external device via a wireless communication link.

  • Patent number: 7377657
    Abstract: An image presentation device (100) includes a set of color light sources (122, 124, 126) and a micro-display panel (150) capable of operating in both image processing and non-image processing modes. A sensor (170) is coupled to the micro-display device (150) to convert light received from the light source (122, 124, 126) into a signal value representing the output from the light source (122, 124, 126). A controller (110), responsive to the signal value, selectively and/or collectively varies the input to each of the individual light sources (122, 124, 125) to provide for consistent operating performance over the life of the product.

  • Publication number: 20060227147
    Abstract: An image presentation device (100) includes a microdisplay panel (150) and a set of light sources (122, 124, 126) operable to emit light of different colors. An optical structure (140) couples the set of the light sources (122, 124, 126) to the microdisplay panel (150). A controller (110) is responsive to the data obtained from an analysis of each image frame, to selectively and individually vary output intensity for the light sources (122, 124, 126) to achieve a particular illumination level and corresponding ratio for processed images.
