  • Patent number: 10419407
    Abstract: Trust between entities participating in an upgrade or enablement/disablement process is established and, to facilitate this remotely and securely, a highly tamper resistant point of trust in the system that is being produced is used. This point of trust enables a more efficient distribution system to be used. Through either a provisioning process or at later stages, i.e. subsequent to installation, manufacture, assembly, sale, etc.; the point of trust embodied as a feature controller on the device or system being modified is given a feature set (or updated feature set) that, when validated, is used to enable or disable entire features or to activate portions of the feature.

  • Publication number: 20190247091
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to systems, devices and methods for trans-septally delivering carbon dioxide through a minimally invasive catheter to create a gaseous pocket or emphysema between the posterior wall of the left atrium and the esophagus during cardiac ablation of the left atrium. This pocket of gas expanded tissue serves to thermally insulate and separate the esophagus from the left atrium during ablation to prevent esophageal damage and the formation of an atrial-esophageal fistula. The system comprises a control system to precisely deliver the gas to a desired location through a needle-based catheter assembly.

  • Patent number: 10352969
    Abstract: Systems and methods described herein are directed towards integrating a shield layer into a current sensor to shield a magnetic field sensing element and associated circuitry in the current sensor from electrical, voltage, or electrical transient noise. In an embodiment, a shield layer may be disposed along at least one surface of a die supporting a magnetic field sensing element. The shield layer may be disposed in various arrangements to shunt noise caused by a parasitic coupling between the magnetic field sensing element and the current carrying conductor away from the magnetic field sensing element.

  • Patent number: 10197727
    Abstract: Holey fibers provide optical propagation. In various embodiments, a large core holey fiber comprises a cladding region formed by large holes arranged in few layers. The number of layers or rows of holes about the large core can be used to coarse tune the leakage losses of the fundamental and higher modes of a signal, thereby allowing the non-fundamental modes to be substantially eliminated by leakage over a given length of fiber. Fine tuning of leakage losses can be performed by adjusting the hole dimension and/or spacing to yield a desired operation with a desired leakage loss of the fundamental mode. Resulting holey fibers have a large hole dimension and spacing, and thus a large core, when compared to traditional fibers and conventional fibers that propagate a single mode. Other loss mechanisms, such as bend loss and modal spacing can be utilized for selected modes of operation of holey fibers.

  • Patent number: 10162906
    Abstract: A method for creating interactive web sites that are easy to modify is disclosed. The method uses a specific web server request handler system that examines each request to determine if a handler should be called to handle information related to the referring web page. Specifically, the server system examines the address of the referring web page to see if the server has a handler routine associated with the referring web page. If the server has a handler associated with the referring web page, then the server executes the handler routine to process any information in the current request, any state information, or any other information. After executing the handler routine, the server handles the current request. The handling of the current request may be affected by the processing performed by the handler routine associated with the referring web page.

  • Publication number: 20180360419
    Abstract: A single hand operation ultrasound probe array is provided. The single ultrasound probe array places individual transducers, each having different transducer characteristics, on sheaths that fit over fingers of a user. By the user positioning their fingers differently, different transducers are selected for use, enabling the user to switch between multiple different center frequencies, or other different transducer configurations, based on the positioning of the fingers of the user relative to the patient. The ultrasound probe array is configured with wired or wireless communication to an ultrasonic machine to receive the probe signals and interpret.
