  • Publication number: 20220171426
    Abstract: A clock oscillator includes a first resonator, a second resonator, and a frequency synthesis module, where an output frequency of the first resonator is higher than an output frequency of the second resonator, the frequency synthesis module is configured to generate a synthesis frequency based on the output frequency of the first resonator and the output frequency of the second resonator, and the synthesis frequency is used as a clock frequency output by the clock oscillator. The clock oscillator uses both of the two resonators with the different output frequencies as clock signal sources, and generates a synthesized clock signal by using the frequency synthesis module.

  • Publication number: 20220157028
    Abstract: A system for replacing physical items in images is discussed. A depicted item can be selected and removed from an image via image mask data and pixel merging techniques. Virtual light source positions can be generated based on real-world light source data from the image. A rendered simulation of a virtual item can then be integrated into the image to create a modified image for display.

  • Patent number: 10352718
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for identifying one or more entrances to a point of interest or commercial entity (e.g., a shopping mall, a store, a business, etc.) using crowd sourced data received from a set of mobile devices over a specific period of time. The method identifies one or more points of entry to an enclosed area (e.g., a parking garage) associated with a point of interest (POI), as well as one or more points of entry to a building associated with the POI (e.g., a museum). When a user requests for directions to a particular POI, a navigation application of some embodiments uses these points of entry as the real driving and walking destinations when calculating and displaying a route to the particular POI.

  • Publication number: 20150072357
    Abstract: The present invention provides a various three-dimensional polymeric scaffold and methods for producing and using the same. In one embodiment, the three-dimensional polymeric scaffold is used to promote cell migration. Yet in another embodiment, the three-dimensional polymeric scaffold comprises enhanced surface functionalization. In one particular embodiment, the polymeric scaffold comprises a plurality of polymer layers, wherein each polymer layer comprises microchannels. Still in another particular embodiment, the composition comprises a fibrous cholesteryl succinyl silane. Yet in another particular embodiment, a polymer comprising cholesteryl succinyl silane attached (e.g., hybridized) to its surface is provided.

  • Patent number: 7734412
    Abstract: In one example, an apparatus and method are provided for rendering map images. In one example, an apparatus (e.g., a map server) includes logic for causing the transfer of tiled vector image data in response to a map request, wherein the vector data is associated with stored map data divided into a plurality of tiles. The tiled vector image data is transferred to a remote device (e.g., a client device) for rendering of the map image. Additionally, the vector image data may comprise one or more attributes associated therewith, the one or more attributes configurable by a receiving device. For example, the map image may be rendered (e.g., customized) based on one or more local attributes to vary the language used, colors, how items in the map are displayed, and other imaging characteristics of the map image.

  • Patent number: 6564224
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for combining two dissimilar road map databases of a given geographic region are provided. The road map database differ in degree of coverage or accuracy of coverage, or both, of the geographic region. Each database includes data defining a plurality of roads. A first set of loops is defined from roads represented in a first of the two road map databases. For each of the first set of loops, a corresponding loop is identified from roads represented in a second of the two road map databases, to define a second set of loops. Each loop of the second set of loops may include one or more links, and each link represents a portion of a road represented in the second road map database. A set of output loops corresponding to the first set of loops is generated to form an output road map database.
