  • Publication number: 20190303843
    Abstract: A method for tracking an item in a distributed environment is provided. At least one node in a network adds a new block to a first cryptographically verifiable ledger represented by a first sequence of blocks that is stored in one or more non-transitory computer-readable media. The new block added to the first cryptographically verifiable ledger contains a component identifier and a hash of a previous block in the first sequence of blocks. The at least one node in the network adds a new block to a second cryptographically verifiable ledger represented by a second sequence of blocks that is stored in the one or more non-transitory computer-readable media. The new block added to the second cryptographically verifiable ledger contains a destination identifier, the first sequence of blocks, and a hash of a previous block in the second sequence of blocks.

  • Publication number: 20190295081
    Abstract: A system and a method for the verification and visualization of subcomponents in a completed assembly is disclosed. The system receives upstream product component sourcing manifest from upstream source addresses. The system receives one or more downstream product component sourcing manifest from one or more downstream source addresses. The system generates a cryptographic verifiable ledger of transaction records based on the upstream and downstream manifests and upstream and downstream source addresses. The system propagates transaction records across a network. The system retrieves the records and instantiates a display tree graph structure based on the transactions in the master cryptographic ledger.

  • Publication number: 20190237909
    Abstract: A face to face contact assembly having at least one electrically conductive spring element and at least one shielding spring element separated from one another by a spacing element. From the perspective of a centerline and extending radially outwardly, electrically conductive spring element is located closest to the centerline, then the spacing element, and then the shielding spring element. The electrically conductive spring element electrically connects two adjacent faces, which in one example can be adjacent printed circuit boards, and the shielding spring element at least partially shields such electrical connection. Other face to face contact assembly arrangements are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190150979
    Abstract: Systems and methods for preventing the seeding of cancerous cells during morcellation of a tissue specimen inside a patient's body and removal of the tissue specimen from inside the patient through a minimally-invasive body opening to outside the patient are provided. One system includes a cut-resistant tissue guard removably insertable into a containment bag. The tissue specimen is isolated and contained within the containment bag and the guard is configured to protect the containment bag and surrounding tissue from incidental contact with sharp instrumentation used during morcellation and extraction of the tissue specimen. The guard is adjustable for easy insertion and removal and configured to securely anchor to the body opening. Protection-focused and containment-based systems for tissue removal are provided that enable minimally invasive procedures to be performed safely and efficiently.

  • Publication number: 20170318326
    Abstract: A mobile audio distribution (MAD) system/method providing for synchronized audio distribution to modular audio modules (MAMs) is disclosed. The system/method utilizes a central audio synchronization module (ASM) that loads audio files onto audio playback recorders (APRs) such that the audio playback emitted from each APR is synchronized in time. These APRs are individually positioned within and electrically connected to a MAM that is positioned in a spatially diverse manner in a desired field of audio distribution- Each MAM is configured to be adaptable to removable physical fixation to a vertical standard such as a tripod, pole, tree, etc. Each MAM is configured with a speaker, amplifier, battery pack, APR, optional radio frequency receiver (RFR) in order to disseminate synchronized audio from the APR via the speaker. Each MAM may be removably interlocked with other MAMs via the use of one or more hermaphroditic plate connectors (HPC).

  • Patent number: 8122449
    Abstract: Provided are techniques for workload balancing. A message is received on a channel. A thread in a thread pool is selected to process the message. In response to determining that the message has been processed and a response has been sent on the channel by the thread, it is determined whether a total number of threads in the thread pool is greater than a low water mark plus one and whether the channel has more than a maximum number of threads blocked on a receive, wherein the low water mark represents a minimum number of threads in the thread pool. In response to determining that a number of threads in the thread pool is greater than the low water mark plus one and that the channel has more than the maximum number of threads blocked on a receive, the thread is terminated.

  • Patent number: 7991822
    Abstract: Local versions of attributes of a storage object are maintained at a plurality of nodes, wherein a first attribute designates a first node of the plurality of nodes as an owner node for the storage object, and wherein a second attribute includes information to resolve validity of ownership of the storage object among the plurality of nodes. The owner node communicates changes to be made to the local versions of the attributes at other nodes of the plurality of nodes. A second node of the plurality of nodes requests ownership of the storage object. The first attribute is updated to designate the second node of the plurality of nodes as the owner node, in response to determining from the second attribute that the validity of ownership of the storage object allows the second node to inherit ownership of the storage object once the first node surrenders ownership of the storage object.
