  • Patent number: 10972556
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for location-based functionality for voice-capturing devices are disclosed. An association is determined between a location value for a location parameter and one or more functionalities. The association is stored by a device management component of a service provider environment. An assignment of the location value to a device account is stored by the device management component. The device account corresponds to a voice-capturing device coupled to the service provider environment over one or more networks. Based at least in part on the assignment of the location value to the device account, the one or more functionalities are enabled for use by the voice-capturing device.

  • Publication number: 20200380194
    Abstract: A method (of generating a layout diagram) includes: identifying, in the layout diagram, a group of three or more cells which violates a horizontal constraint vector (HCV) and is arranged so as to exhibit two or more vertically-aligned edge-pairs (VEPs); each VEP including two members representing at least partial portions of vertical edges of corresponding cells of the group; relative to a horizontal direction, the members of each VEP being disposed in edgewise-abutment and separated by a corresponding actual gap; and the HCV having separation thresholds, each of which has a corresponding VEP and represents a corresponding minimum gap in the horizontal direction between the members of the corresponding VEP; and for each of at least one but fewer than all of the separation thresholds, selectively moving a given one of cells corresponding to one of the members of the corresponding VEP thereby to avoid violating the HCV.

  • Publication number: 20190353578
    Abstract: A quantum flow cytometer detects an analyte with photon-number statistics and includes: a flow cytometer that receives a pump light, an analyte and produces scattered light from the analyte; an intensity interferometer that includes a beam splitter and receives the scattered light; splits the scattered light; and single photon detectors that receive the scattered light, such that the beam splitter and the single photon detectors provide photon number statistics that detects the analyte. A process for detecting the analyte with photon-number statistics includes: receiving the pump light; producing, by the analyte, scattered light from scattering the pump light; splitting the scattered light into first scattered light and second scattered light; detecting, by single photon detectors, the first scattered light and second scattered light; producing, by the single photon detectors, detection signals; and subjecting the detection signals to an analyzer to detect the analyte by photon number statistics.

  • Patent number: 9967248
    Abstract: Described are techniques for establishing secure communication channels between user devices and service providing devices. Correspondence between a request received from a user device and security data may be used to determine that the user device has provided a valid access credential. The access credential may be replaced with a subsequent access credential after use. Correspondence between the request and service data may be used to determine that the request may be processed by the receiving service and that the user device has the permissions necessary for the request to be processed. Portions of the request that meet these criteria may be provided to the service. The secure communication channel may also be used to provide the response from the service to the user device.

  • Publication number: 20120147386
    Abstract: A touch device with light frequency sensor to sense the relative position of an object to be detected includes a work area, a light source, at least two light frequency sensors, and a position computation module. The light source is arranged toward the work area for providing light with predetermined frequency. The two light frequency sensors are arranged for respectively detecting the light frequency signals entered into the lens and the optical filter. The position computation module is linked with the two light frequency sensors for signal connection and detects characteristic data by means of trigonometry to determine the position of the object to be detected. As the light frequency sensor could simple detects the signal, the position computing module with a relative low-order computing is capable of processing the signal. That means the high-order processor of the prior art is unnecessary to be used to processing the acquired image.
