  • Patent number: 9898880
    Abstract: A wearable device (“WD”) stores a token after its wearer completes a successful strong authentication on a primary protected device (“primary PD”). Other protected devices (“secondary PDs”) recognize the stored token as representing a strong authentication and grant the user access while the user continues to wear the WD within a “digital leash-length” proximity. The WD constantly monitors whether the user continues to wear the device. Upon sensing that the user has removed the WD, the WD deletes, disables, or invalidates the token, The user must then repeat the strong authentication to gain further access to the protected devices.

  • Patent number: 9612993
    Abstract: An analog frontend (AFE) interface is dynamically programmable. A single AFE circuit can interface with multiple different analog devices, and dynamically configure its input for efficient interfacing with each different analog device. The AFE receives multiple unprocessed analog input signals and samples the analog input signals. A preprocessor element in the AFE analyzes the input signals and generates control signals based on the analyzing. The control signals dynamically adjust how the AFE samples the analog input signals, and can improve the efficiency of the operation the AFE.

  • Publication number: 20150006667
    Abstract: This disclosure is directed to a dynamic data compression system. A device may request data comprising certain content from a remote resource. The remote resource may determine if any part of the content is identical or similar to content in other data and if the other data is already on the requesting device. Smart compression may then involve transmitting only the portions of the content not residing on the requesting device, which may combine the received portions of the content with the other data. In another example, a capturing device may capture at least one of an image or video. Smart compression may then involve transmitting only certain features of the image/video to the remote resource. The remote resource may determine image/video content based on the received features, and may perform an action based on the content. In addition, a determination whether to perform smart compression may be based on system/device conditions.

  • Patent number: 8324064
    Abstract: Methods are disclosed for forming an improved varactor diode having first and second terminals. The methods include providing a substrate having a first surface in which are formed isolation regions separating first and second parts of the diode. A varactor junction is formed in the first part with a first side coupled to the first terminal and a second side coupled to the second terminal via a sub-isolation buried layer (SIBL) region extending under the bottom and partly up the sides of the isolation regions to a further doped region that is ohmically connected to the second terminal. The first part does not extend to the SIBL region. The varactor junction desirably comprises a hyper-abrupt doped region. The combination provides improved tuning ratio, operating frequency and breakdown voltage of the varactor diode while still providing adequate Q.

  • Patent number: 7052939
    Abstract: A structure that reduces signal cross-talk through the semiconductor substrate for System-On-Chip (SOC) (2) applications, thereby facilitating the integration of digital circuit blocks (6) and analog circuit blocks (8) onto a single IC. Cross-circuit interaction through a substrate (4) is reduced by strategically positioning the various digital circuit blocks (6) and analog circuit blocks (8) in an isolated wells (10), (12), (16) and (20) over a resistive substrate (4). These well structures (10), (12), (16), and (20) are then surrounded with a patterned low resistivity layer (22) and optional trench region (24). The patterned low resistivity region (22) is formed below wells (10) and (12) and functions as a low resistance AC ground plane. This low resistivity region (22) collects noise signals that propagate between digital circuit blocks (6) and analog circuit blocks (8).

  • Publication number: 20030234438
    Abstract: An integrated circuit that supports digital circuits, analog circuits, and RF circuits on a single IC. Digital CMOS circuitry lies on a low resistivity layer that provides good latch-up qualities and allows for dense PAD I/O. Analog CMOS circuitry rests on an isolated well region on a highly resistive layer in order to minimize signal crosstalk through the substrate. Analog BJT devices also sit on a highly resistive region within its own well structure in order to minimize parasitic capacitances and provide for high frequency device switching. RF passive elements, such as inductors and capacitors, rest on a highly resistive region in order to minimize signal losses that especially occur at high frequencies. RF active components rest on a highly resistive region to maximize device performance.
